I Hope You Dance

I'm sure all of you have heard that song "I Hope You Dance" by Lee Ann Womack. That song came out awhile ago, but whenever I hear it, I always think of my mom. Once when this song was playing on the radio, she told me how much she liked this song and how it's everything she's ever wanted for us (her kids). While telling me about this, she starts crying (oh yah, that's another thing about my mom... she gets caught up in the moment and will cry uncontrollably). I guess I never gave it that much thought until I actually sat down and listened to the words. Now that I have a daughter, I understand what she meant.

OK back to the card... the reason why I brought up that song is because this card reminds me of that song. I guess its cause Aunty embossed the word "Dance" on the flowers... Or maybe its cause she used the Miyono stamp? Either way, it reminds me of that song, which reminds me of mom. Miyono does look like she's ready for the obon right? But I'm pretty sure that's not the kind of dancing my mom was hoping we'd do. hee hee. I know, I know, its just the concept.. thought I'd throw in a little joke to lighten the mood.

By the way- love the DP she used (by Creative Imaginations). Alphabet stencil is by American Traditions. Thanks Aunty for all the great samples! Check in tomorrow for a SURPRISE!
