Art Creations Friday

I have to say a big "THANK YOU" to the ladies at Art Creations Friday who provide some fabulous images for us to use.
The image they posted today was the perfect inspiration for a retirement card I needed to make for a friend who is a little concerned about what she will do with all her time once she is retired. It's a little tongue in cheek, but I know she'll get a kick out of it.
The sentiment says, "Wake up every morning with the belief that something wonderful is going to happen."
