Bad News, Good News
The bad news is that I am not feeling good today. I got bit by a black fly last night and I am allergic to them. They always bite by my eyes. I look like someone hit me. My eye is very swollen, itches, and is kinda blistered. Sometimes I get a fever when I get bit. This time I just have a headache.
The Good News...I had the nicest surprise today, which makes everything better. When I went to the mail there were two stamps from High Hopes. I called about a week ago to order an ant stamp. I was having trouble using the web sight and they were having phone trouble. Then I spoke to Tina. She was so sweet and said because I was a fan that she was just going to send it to me. Then she went and sent me two stamps. I was so excited that the headache couldn't stop me from making a card. Isn't it cute? When I was little my mom and I would sing the song High Hopes. It is about a little ant that tries to move a rubber tree plant. I got the move "Hole in the Head" last week and watched it with my hubby. That is the 1959 movie that the song comes from. He said he enjoyed watching the movie. I just think that is the greatest name for a rubber stamp store. I hope you like my card I am going to enter in two challenges. The one at High Hopes and Stamptacular.
The card is on kraft paper, I colored my High Hopes ant with copic markers, I cut circles and taped them around the back to make it look like a flower and I doodled the petals with a green jell pen and the edge of the card with a brown fine point marker. The ribbon at the bottom is something I had. I love the foot prints. They are from the little ant tracking mud in from the garden. I hope you like it as much as I do.
