Folksy Friday – Home Sweet Home

Well I’m a bit disappointed yesterday was the first day I missed adding my faves from the Folksy Foolers, but I was working late with work and everything was going wrong… but I’m back! Today’s listing was another card featuring Freddie, this time my ‘thumbs up’ card perfect for a thank you card.  My Bessie… Read more »
