HYCCT1128 Hope for the Holidays

Challenge Title: Hope for the Holidays
Hostess: Jami
Keyword: HYCCT1128
Date: Friday, October 28, 2011

I'm happy to have the opportunity to host a challenge for this wonderful card drive as my life has been touched by breast cancer more than once. My great-aunt (who raised me) had breast cancer twice and survived it both times, the first time resulting in a mastectomy when I was just in high school. And a very close friend of mine from college lost her grueling four year battle with breast cancer just over 2 years ago. So I'm dedicating this challenge to them. I hope you'll play along. This should be a fun and easy one and I'm sure the Cancer Center will be happy to have holiday cards on hand!

************************************************** ************

Create a Christmas/Winter/Holiday card using any shade of pink as one of the primary colors in your color scheme.

I'll have to think about how to use pink as a primary colour for Christmas - be back soon :D. If I come up with a good idea I can make two and have one for myself.

HYCCT1128 Joy and warm winter wishes by Crafty Julia
 
Thanks, Jami- this was a worthy challenge! I used Michael's stores Joy stamp, punched out in a blossom shape, and added some seasonal symbols- evergreens, holly and berries, and a magenta snowflake. I sponged the card with a dark pink tone, and added some ribbon. Have a good friday, everyone!

HYCCT1128 Ho Ho Ho- Love & Joy Come to You by Crafty Julia
 
I was inspired by the wonderful cards in the Hope for the Holidays gallery for today to come up with a candy filled card. I started with Inkadinkado's Peppermint Twist, and added Ho Ho Ho. I sewed on the red and white ribbon, and added pink stretch lace. The bundled up snowman in the corner sends his regards, too! Here's my card:
