(This is a long post, but worth reading to the end for a great cause!)
I found this great Card Drive Challenge over on Splitcoaststampers.
They are in their sixth year, an annual month long card drive to benefit those affected by breast cancer.
"Whether your stamps cling to acrylic, wood, or to your hard drive, they hold the power to convey hope and lift the spirits of anyone who sees what you create with them. That is the inspiration for our “Hope You Can Cling To” stamping campaign for Breast Cancer Awareness Month."
When we began this event, we kicked this campaign off on World Card Making Day - a day of celebration of the power of a handmade card. The year we began, WCMD was October 1st, and so that is now our official kickoff date each year. We encourage papercrafters across the globe to put their talents to work creating beautiful handmade cards to send to patients and their families at the MD Anderson Cancer Center, and, in the process, turn our gallery pink!
Splitcoaststampers is happy this year to join an Australian partner in addition to MD Anderson for Hope You Can Cling To.
Please welcome the Mater Foundation to this great cause!
So with that in mind - I have decided to join the Challenge - ok, so I'm 11 days late, but we have all month long to get them done - a new challenge added each day.
So bear with me as mine will be out of order......but i am getting them done and come the first week in November, I will have a whole stash of cards to send in to the Mater Foundation!
My card for the HYCCT1507 T.R.A.S.H Challenge.
Using the word TRASH - you need to use an element that begins with each letter - can be Manufacturer, product name, word, etc.
T - Ticket, R - Rose embellishment, A - Arrows, S - SU Card Stock, H - Hardwood stamp (SU).
Loved this challenge - had to put my thinking hat on for sure!
it's a great cause - why not join me in it and bring some smiles to some faces that just may need that little lift!
Thanks for looking,
Until next time, Happy Crafting.
