High Hopes!

Hello! I need a card like this for a friend going through a rough time right now! It's not me, but I'm having issues too! I'm sorry I haven't been around much! (I always feel badly whenb I lose followers :( Thanks to you for sticking with me!

We enjoyed a wonderful family camping weekend in the Finger Lakes region! I can now call it annual because we've had two! I've probably mentioned that I have 5 brothers and sisters and we all like each other even though we are in our 50s and 60s!! Once we lost our parents it became hard to all get together without a "home base".

Anyway, somewhere along the wine tasting on Friday I lost my camera! I'm using my husbands (which was a hand me down from me a couple of years ago! Yep, dinosaur! It's not synced up to my laptop so now I'm working on the desktop! Yep, dinosaur!

This is an older High Hopes image from when you could order directly from them! I cannot find it on the internet, but I think you can special order from 7 kids college fund. For some reason I am not even able to link up the store! Sorry!! (Did I mention I hate this computer!?)

I used the Splitcoast sketch for this week, which is a very easy and nice one for a larger image like this one.

Thanks again for visiting me! I appreciate it so much! Working on a special project for Monday, Aug 23, but I'll try to be back before then!

Have a GREAT day! Cheryl

What a special card! I'm sure your friend will treasure it!
We just drove through your area a few days ago. On the spur of the moment we decided to go to Niagara Falls!! Everyone should go once in their lifetime! A beautiful state! After 3,600 miles it was the highlight of the trip!!

I looooove this High Hopes ant -- if anyone asks, it is Willard Weather Ant & here is the link to the stamp at 7 Kids...

Sorry things are rough -- my posts are scant these days too. Sometimes real life takes over & what can ya do? Silly to stop following a blog -- even if someone doesn't post for a while I want to be sure to see when they DO!!!
