Default HYCCT1221 Clearly Hopeful! Chatter Thread

Challenge Title: Clearly Hopeful!
Hostess: TexasGrammy (Bev Gerard)
Keyword: HYCCT1221
Date: Monday, October 22, 2012

I'm so glad to see you here at our 3rd annual Hope You Can Cling To challenges! ' Clearly ' this is a most inspirational and powerful challenge that brings stampers together for a cause that has the potential to impact each one of us in some personal way.

In my case, a good friend and neighbor is at the beginning of her journey to rid her body of breast cancer. Breast cancer patients need many things on a regular basis, including excellent medical care, love, and it is very clear to me that they desperately need hope . It's so easy for patients to lose hope along their journey. For some, it can even be difficult to find hope. So let's fill the gallery with 'Clearly Hopeful' creations!

Extra!!: Here's an inspirational song by Johnny Nash to put you in the clearly hopeful crafty spirit!

Ready? Here are your challenge details . Remember, we can see 'clearly' now! Clear, you say? Here are a few kick-starter ideas:
acetate, cellophane, jars, dew drops, text bubble stick-ons (weren't they called "page pebbles"?), clear die cuts, clear embossing, cracked glass, images of glass pitchers, drinking glasses, eyeglasses ... ... and I'm sure we'll see even more "Clearly Clever" ideas!
