All of us need HOPE in our lives and these are some of my favourite quotes on that :D

“We are all in the gutter, but some of us are looking at the stars” – Oscar Wilde

“Hope is the dream of a soul awake.” – A French Proverb

“The very least you can do in your life is to figure out what you hope for. And the most you can do is to live inside that hope.” – Barbara Kingsolver

(Know of someone who needs the extra “lift” in his/her life? May this be a card of encouragement to that someone you care)

    Ophelia looks so cute and huggable flying, thanks to the balloons of hope!! i especially like her on the kids tee, cos kids are often seen as “hope” for the future~ X)
