If you look really closely you can see that the hope is on the back side of another stamp. I must have set that on top of the hope while it was on the block and then, when I picked it up to put it away, Hope went with it.

Hope on the back of another year older ----Whats that all about.  I would have liked it better if it had stuck to another year wiser.  Or you are fabulous or.........                any way I am glad I found it and thanks to all of you for your encouragement I knew I would find my hope. and I did and on that note I will do another Thankful Thursday giveaway a $15 Joann's or Michael's Gift card.

Remember to be here on Jan 1st for my 1 year anniversary blog hop.  You will really want to be at this one.

  2. Lol! You are so funny, Diana! I place my hope on my sleeve! No other place to put it! :)

  3. lol isn't it funny how you can misplace something like that? just had it a few minutes ago.. and now its gone? .. happened to me the other day with my Peachy Keen Stamp ("winter is for the birds") its tiny.. i just got it in the mail and was using it and it stuck to my arm and flew off somewhere and I haven't found it yet.. hopefully it pops up soon like yours did :D Thanks for the chance to win.. Im not sure how exactly to answer your question but my best answer would be I place my hope with God, family, friends, the future.. others etc etc. thanks again im a follower :D

  4. Yay, you finally found hope. I was hoping you would. Maybe hope was with Another Year Older because you will be celebrating your blogoversary and maybe it is a sign of all good things to come in the new year!!!! I hope that makes sense.
    Hugs, Happy Holidays, and Blessings for a Prosperous New Year my friend.

  5. whoo hoo, you found your hope. I keep my hope in my heart of course...hope for health and happiness for all around me :)

  6. I chuckled reading this as I too am always loosing something. Thanks for being so transparent.
    Have a Very Merry Christmas!

  7. Glad your found your "hope", my hope is in my heart also, I just "hope" and pray for life to be just as merry & beautiful with the New Year right around the corner.... nothing else.....

  8. I'm so happy you found your hope! It is funny where things end up! I was looking and looking for my to/from stamp and was getting so upset till I realized I was holding it!! So silly!

  9. I don't know about you, but I'm thinking that finding your Hope is a Christmas Miracle! Okay, not a big one or a divine one...but still!

  10. It is amazing where "things" pop up. I like to say, "if it was meant to be" or "there is always a reason". Just glad you found your hope. : )

    Merry Christmas,

  14. I place my hope in God! I'd get really discouraged if I didn't. Yesterday my fiance found out he wasn't chosen for the position he applied for, and I pray and hope that it's because there's a better one out there instead!

  15. Glad you found your hope!! I hope that I do get to be another year older and that you do too!!! :)Amy

  24. I find hope when I read or hear stories of faith. Today, the video by the teen Ben Breedlove is on my mind. His message is so powerful!

    I am a long time follower!

  25. I'm very glad you found your hope. I lose a lot of little craft items, so I can totally relate. As for me, I place my hope in Heaven. I enjoy life as much as I can, but I'm so glad to know that there is more than this - somewhere to look forward to spending eternity. THANK YOU SO MUCH for the opportunity to feed my crafting addiction.

  26. Hi Diana. Glad you found your hope. I place my hope in miracles since I've heard of several over this past holiday season.

  27. Congrats on your blogiversary and I'm glad you found hope. Hope 2012 will be more successful for you than the last one. Thanks for the chance to win the Michaels Gift card.
    Happy New Year Diana.

  28. Hate when that happens ~ something ends up missing and it was just there. So glad you found it ~ a sign there is "Hope." HOPE could be my word for 2012 as I'm always hoping (and praying) for something like great health, good friends and financial stability. So far God has been there for me so I feel hopeful. Thanks for the chance to win a Michaels Gift Card (hoping I win and get the chance to go shopping)! Thanks, Diana, and Happy 2012!

  29. I don't know if I have a place to "place" my hope as much as I do my faith...that's the real deal! And thanks for having such a fun giveaway ;)

  30. I am a new follower, started with your blogaversary! Thanks for the chance to win a Michael's gc. I HOPE we will all be healthy, happy and safe this year.

  32. Hope is a big word with lots of meaning...My hope is in the Lord, his love, mercy and grace :O) He gets me through life, answers my prayers, and the greatest hope I have is to someday make Heaven my home. I think I live at Michael's and JoAnn's and a few other stores :O Hugs! Leah Ann

  40. I just found your blog today through exploring Cricut. I am a new follower. Hope, I don't think about hope much, I just anticipate, I believe everyone can have what there hearts really want, we just have to make it happen. It just doesn't happen over night. Sometimes what we want we already have, we just don't see it.

  41. i'm glad ur found ur hope (stamp). i've lost a few clear stamps...they do disappear quite easily 'cause they stick to anything. unfortunately i wasn't so lucky though...and i'm still looking....
