I've Got That Wednesday Feeling :o)



I love Wednesday cos it's my day off & today started well  with brunch out with friends & now I'm in my craft room crafting & listening to the radio :o) - it doesn't get too much better than this (apart from family time of course).  The cards I'm sharing today were made with a gorgeous image I saw while I was blog hopping from A Day For Daisies who are kind enough to offer a freebie to use in their challenges.  I dusted the sewing machine off, it hasn't seen much action lately (even though I keep saying I want to do more sewing, hopefully this year I will be able to fit some in).
