Challenge Title: Big Or Small, Save Them All!
Hostess: Barbara Anders (Bar)
Date: Friday, October 21st, 2011
Breast cancer isn't picky, it doesn't care what size your ta-tas are--the physical and emotional toll it takes is enormous, regardless. And, although it's rare, it also attacks children. So, when I saw this slogan on a breast cancer awareness site I knew that was what I wanted to do. Let's "support" them all by using two sizes of any geometric shape on your project: Circles, rectangles, squares, ovals, you choose, just use two sizes!
We are so glad you've joined us for this wonderful month - I can't wait to see what you create! Feel free to do multiple samples for each challenge, and remember, the goal of the challenge is to get these cards in the hands of the strong ladies being treated at MD Anderson, so be sure and follow the instructions below!

Thanks so much for your help in this card drive!
And many thanks to my awesome sample makers: Joanne Basile (basilefamily), Jodi Collins (Kharmagirl), Tammy Hershberger (stampertammy), and Jody Morrow (texasjodylynn). You ladies ROCK!
Today's Hope You Can Cling To Challenge is to recognize all sizes and ages of those afflicted by breast cancer by using 1 big and 1 small geometric image. I choose 2 circles, and used my Autumn Splendor stamp set by Stampin' Up. I learned about ink pad daubing last night at a card class, so that's what I used to get the different shades on the leaves and acorns. I added a small pumpkin tag from Loads of Love Accessories for a little accent piece.
Best Wishes to All!

Kind words can be short and easy to speak, but their echoes are truly endless.
Here is my card. Be You, Be Strong. My twosies are the strips of paper and I used Taylored Expressions Sketch Challenge 148 too. My more great pictures are on my blog at [http://cindycoutts.com][Cindy Coutts Designs[/url]. Thank you for stopping by to look at this adorable card. I hope you like it.
Let me get this straight because my editing privileges are gone in this thread.

What a great idea for a challenge! Here is my HYCCT1121 shapes card. I receive a simple commercially made card with flower in a vase for my birthday and I'm recreating the style here. I'm making eleven of these cards to send in.
