HYCCT cards



Each October, Splitcoaststampers hosts a fun, month long challenge honoring and supporting those who are going through Breast Cancer. I have done all the challenges in the past...and really wanted to complete them all this 3rd Annual "Hope You Can Cling To."   Especially after recent events.




But, life gets busy sometimes...as it does for all of us.  Luckily, this week, I was able to start to play a little catch up.  Here are three cards I created earlier this week. These will be donated to the UT MD Anderson Cancer Center.


HYCCT01C...Shades of Grey with a splash of color. 
Thank goodness for hippos who wear green eye shadow and nail polish!
I dug out these neglected star bling for this card!




HYCCT03...just five words.
These are 5 words that I love to hear
in any form!

Yes, I watercolor everything!


HYCCT1205...courage/strength card
This sentiment from Paper Makeup Stamps as always been 
an inspiring quote.  Boy do I miss PMS!



AND...
A big THANK YOU goes out to all of you who voted me 
into the 2nd place spot for the
Master Crafter Challenge with Sarah Hamer.
I was only 6 votes away from #1...

and there is already a fairy living in the house.
The journal has been used.
The house was then delivered to my mom...
who pledges to return it now that she is cheered up!

Dawn, all of these cards are special. Nicely done.

I really like how you stamped off the edge of the card on the fireflies. No surprise, your watercoloring looks great!
