Challenge Title: Things Are Lookin' Up
Hostess: Bridget Finlay (bfinlay)
Keyword: HYCCT1109
Date: Sunday, October 9, 2011

"HOPE" makes me think of looking up and to the future! The dictionary says it's looking forward with expectation! And things ARE lookin' up for the future - survival rates are better than ever before and research is bringing better and more effective treatments on the scene! Our challenge today is to make a card with things we can see when lookin' up! Let your creativity run loose with butterflies, birds, bees, ladybugs, balloons, airplanes, clouds, sky, stars, sun, rainbows, sunsets, mountains...you get the idea! I hope you're enjoying all the HOPE challenges - looking forward to seeing your creations!

Fun challenge, Bridget. I think we miss a lot by not looking up more :D.

bfinlay 10-09-2011 05:27 AM

I agree, Sabrina - I'm looking up to a gray, rainy dark sky today - just reminding myself the sun is still there, I just can't see it! Good day to stay in and stamp!

newstampinaddict 10-09-2011 05:30 AM

Great challenge and a great message Bridget!

got my thinking cap on..

I'm seeing a whole lot of things in my sky :D.
I'm sure I'll be back to this challenge again during the month.
Now I'm just sorry I didn't get the kite-flying Flopsey as well when I got the book-reading one.

We have clouds right now looking like it's going to snow today. Thanks for the challenge Bridget.

Quick card before I leave for work today:

HYCCTC1109 Lookin' Up Bird by muzbysmom - Cards and Paper Crafts at Splitcoaststampers

I used the bird from A Touch of Nature. A fairly clean and simple card - did put ribbon on it so it's not a true CAS but close.

Shadow's Mom 10-09-2011 07:53 AM

Thank you for the wonderful challenge, Bridget!

Here's my Holiday Peace.

For today's Hope You Can Cling to Challenge, Things Are Lookin' Up, I stamped a mountain scene, complete with sheep and cows on a beautiful sunny day. I added some flowery ribbon for the meadow floor. Have a great sunday!

I can't see your card yet, Lynn, it says image pending approval, so it's probably waiting for the moderators approval on Monday! Can't wait!! : )

Hey everyone, it's midnight here in the U.K. so I'm going to have to hit the hay, but I'll be up bright and early tomorrow morning to check out what you've come up with while I've been asleep!!

Greywolf 10-09-2011 04:35 PM

Well I missed yesterday's challenge, but I might make it up later in the month. I enjoyed Bridget's challenge today as the idea to use the star ef came to me right away.
