High Hopes Card

Hi Friends! I'm up early today because I went to bed early. . .early to me is 11:00. LOL! I had a really strange dream. . .I dreamt that this guy liked me. His name is Mocomichi Hayami. . .a Japanese model and actor. LOL! It's so funny because he is in his 20s. I don't know if I'm my age in the dream. . .I think I am. Do you have strange dreams? I dream a lot. . .practically nightly and I usually remember parts of my dreams. My dreams are usually good dreams. . I rarely have nightmares.

I made this card the other day. . .it was partly done and I finished it this morning. Since I've been driving my daughter to school, I haven't been able to be on top of things. It's been 4 years since I've worked outside the home and back when I was working I was much more organized. Since then, I've had a lackadaisical approach to life. I really need to get on the ball.

I bought this stamp at Little C's back when she was selling High Hopes stamps. It looks like she's no longer carrying the High Hopes brand but she carries Sarah Kay, Hanna, Pink Cat Studio, Rachel Ann Miller, CC Design, etc. She has a lot of discounted priced stamps so be sure to check it out!





I colored the image using my Copic Markers. The DPs that I used are all from my scrap pile. I have a lot of small pieces of scrap paper. I'm trying to use them. . .I've been pretty good using them lately.

Anyway. . .I need to get ready to head on out again. I'll bring my netbook and stop by and visit some of you. The Internet connection is a bit slow on campus but at least I still can blurf while I'm there.

Hope you all have a wonderful day!!

I sometimes have weird dreams...last night I dreamt that we were in church singing a hymn that sounded like a rock song and we were all holding paper guitars and rockin' down! I have NO idea where that one came from! LOL!!! Hugs, Lisa
