January 2011 US card swap.

My list of US card swappers has doubled this month to twenty so I thought a real quick card was in order.  I had some small cards over from Christmas that I bought at Craftwork Cards and printed a digi image from Two Peas in a Bucket. A cute and rather apt poem for me from the internet and job done.

Here's the poem
In winter I'm rounder
and fatter than before.
I'm wearing coats and sweaters
and woolen hats galore.
My hands are as plump as kittens
when I'm wearing winter mittens.
My legs in thick, snug snow pants
look like an elephant's.
Indeed, I must confess
that when I do undress,
I feel as small and light
as a bird flown out of sight.
