Hope You Can Cling To FAQ
 
Got questions? We may have answered them here!

Q: Can I use embellishments and glitter on the cards I send to MD Anderson?
A: Yes - bling makes the world go around! :)

Q: If I don't have clear envelopes can I put my cards in ziploc bags?
A: Absolutely!

Q: Should I leave my cards blank or write in them?
A: You can send blank ones for the families to use, write a note in some for the patients, or send blank cards with a note on a post-it inside - it's up to you!

Q: I don't see my card in the Hope You Can Cling To Gallery - what do I do?
A: Click on your card, choose Edit Photo and check the category - make sure it says "Hope You Can Cling To Challenge Gallery". Change the category in the drop down if you need to. Then check your keywords. If you need to change your keyword - it will take about 15 minutes to show up in the gallery after a change.

Lydia, you are always awesome! just wanted you to know! :)

UnderstandBlue 10-05-2010 07:05 AM

(((hugs Paula))) :)

HeartHugsDesigns 10-05-2010 09:59 AM

I agree with Paula!

AnnetteMac 10-05-2010 01:48 PM

One more question Lydia. Can we use "Merry Christmas" on our cards or is this considered a religious sentiment? I saw the question asked in another thread but couldn't find an answer.
Thanks

UnderstandBlue 10-05-2010 01:51 PM

Yes she said Merry Christmas was fine :)

AnnetteMac 10-05-2010 02:12 PM

Thanks Lydia!

CAKath 10-05-2010 10:58 PM

Lydia, I think you must be online 24/7! Thanks for keeping us going with all of these challenges. I am hoping we get thousands of cards sent in to MD Anderson. I have sent the link to the Challenge forum to my entire downline. :-)

Oh I just have this song in my head now Lydia......I hope it makes you giggle too! I have the best childhood memories from the Muppets!!! LOL

YouTube - The Muppet show Lidia the tattooed lady

UnderstandBlue 10-06-2010 02:12 AM

Thank you Kathy!! You are fantastic!!

And Lee I just snorted!! I LOVE that song!!!

I love the Muppets. I still get all misty if I hear the Rainbow Connection! :D

racheldouglasnz 10-06-2010 01:17 PM

Do we have to post off to MD Anderson to enter the challenge? I live in NZ and would like to send to a charity here that does this sort of thing if it's available. But I do get that MD Anderson are the people you have partnered with.

artsy_em 10-06-2010 04:54 PM

Is it okay to wait 'til the end of the month when the challenges are all done and send all my cards in one big package? :)

UnderstandBlue 10-06-2010 05:46 PM

Sure!

Good to know since that was my plan too! :D :D

Glenda J 10-07-2010 07:54 AM

Do the cards have to have pink on them?

Thanks Lydia! I was looking through the gallery and a lot have pink on them so I wasn't sure.

Thanks for the great challenges!

UnderstandBlue 10-07-2010 09:13 AM

Thank you for playing in them Glenda!!!

I love them all!

Did this get answered?

debbiedee 10-09-2010 06:44 AM

I thought I saw somewhere where a company posted a free digi image set (sentiments, bra etc) and I was at work, so couldn't print it and now I'm looking for it to use on some of my cards. Is it gone now?

Is this what you're looking for? Digital Stamps - Breast Cancer Awareness Digital Stamps - MY GRAFICO - DIGITAL ARTS AND CRAFTS STORE

debbiedee 10-11-2010 05:27 AM

It's not what I was looking for, but thank you for this link.
The one I saw had several sentiments, a couple of different bra images and some others I don't remember right now.

cheermom 10-12-2010 02:45 AM

Where do we send our cards? I didn't see this info. Thanks.

UnderstandBlue 10-12-2010 04:31 AM

Howdy! We've included the address in each challenge post - so either the first post in each chatter thread or you can go to the Master Challenge thread.

Thank you so much for participating!!

Cook22 10-12-2010 05:09 AM

Can I just clarify - all cards in the challenge are to be sent to MD Andersen, yes? It's just I've seen a couple of cards combined with another challenge and being sent elsewhere.

cassie_lu 10-20-2010 07:15 AM

does each bag need to be in a sandwich bag or can they all be put in a bigger ziplock bag?

CndnStamper 10-20-2010 11:16 PM

Just checking. I don't always have the supplies requested. Can we substitute? Example: I don't have felt but I can use wool. There are several challenges that I just don't have the supplies but would love to play.

UnderstandBlue 10-21-2010 01:48 AM

Of course! We definitely want you to play with what you have! :)

Still wondering what the answer is for this question....I too, have a local church charity I would like donate to...

UnderstandBlue 10-28-2010 10:59 AM

Sorry I think I answered that in the other thread and didn't copy. If you are across an ocean you can still play! :) I don't want mailing costs to keep anyone out so you may use a local charity.

lacyquilter 10-29-2010 06:31 PM

Lydia, would it be all right to add some extra cards to our box that aren't part of these challenges?

UnderstandBlue 10-29-2010 06:33 PM

Oh that would be fabulous Melody! :) Thank you!

Oh, good. Thanks. 'Cause I have LOTS of cards.

UnderstandBlue 10-29-2010 06:38 PM

AWESOME!!

artsy_em 10-29-2010 06:59 PM

That's a great question, Melody! I'm going to do the same.

Thanks, Lydia! :)

Ksnurse 10-30-2010 08:56 AM

I thought about doing that too, glad you asked...I've got bunches in the stash box that could use a good home....I don't know what they are planning for postage but I bought 2 books of stamps to send also as several of mine will require extra postage...

resqbarbie 11-02-2010 05:29 AM

do they need to be in separate clear bags or can they be in one big one?

UnderstandBlue 11-02-2010 05:39 AM

Since so many people will be looking through them they asked that each one be protected. :)

resqbarbie 11-02-2010 05:41 AM

gotcha! I'm so excited I finally finished and am packing them up!

dsp245 11-10-2010 11:45 AM

I've asked my q's in the forum but I am asking here again as well, if I don't play the challenge and have cards to donate, would it be okay to send it to the cancer center? also, Does this wonderful event end sometime soon or it's continuous?
