Challenge Title: Start Spreading the News!
Hostess: dini aka Dina K
Keyword: HYCCT1212

The emphasis on breast cancer screening during the month of October is all about AWARENESS.
Early detection of breast cancer signs can be key in successful treatment, and we all want to look out for each other.

The thought of awareness got me singing a little show tuneStart Spreading the News!

Let’s kick this challenge off with some flair, and make a card inspired by a show tune!
Any song (title or lyrics) from any musical or movie will do – just let us know what song inspired you!
You can click HERE for some lists to get you started.

I used one of Mo Manning’s gorgeous digital images on my card, inspired by the song “Embraceable You” from An American In Paris.
I love this image so much, and I love the solidarity and support that it conveys.
Thank you so much for your willingness to be an encouragement to someone who needs it!!

TWO lucky winners will be drawn from all my participants to receive a free digital stamp from Mo Manning's shop, Mo's Digital Pencil!

Interest concept, Dina. I've got a few ideas already and will let them gel until I can get back with a card this afternoon. See 'ya then.

dini 10-12-2012 04:33 AM

Yay! I couldn't stop myself today - but then I have this undying habit of breaking into song if something reminds me of particular lyrics. I'm sure it must be endearing to someone...! LOL

Have fun with it! Your card doesn't have to include the words or title of the song, but make sure you let us know what song inspired you in your card description.

vdoyle8 10-12-2012 05:22 AM

Fun fun fun Dina! And breaking into song endears you to me! I'm hoping to get to stamp at least for a few minutes today!

stampingout 10-12-2012 05:27 AM

Here is my card. I used the song "Seasons Of Love" from Rent!

Hmmm....I'll have to think of something & make it when I get home. I'll be probably singing Sound of Music all day which is my favorite movie.

HYCCT1212 Love My Doggy
 
Dina- great challenge! As it's getting cooler, I am drawn to images with coats and hats today :) I was inspired by Patti Page's "(How Much Is That) Doggy In The Window" song- and used MFT's You Had Me At Woof stamp set, paired with SU's Tart and Tangy. Added some dc flowers, ribbons, smash tape and silvery paper for bling. Here's Love My Doggy

HYCCT1212 My Sweet Pea
 
I was inspired by the lullaby like song- "Sweet Pea"- and did this card- using Stamping Bella's Baby Bella Pea stamp, along with some dc buttons and a flower, made out of the patterned inside of a business envelope. I crimped the background for texture, and added some ribbon and lace. Finished with a double twine tie. Here's My Sweet Pea

KelliJo 10-12-2012 09:02 AM

I went with the First Wives Club and the song, "You Don't Own Me!" lol I LOVE LOVE LOVE that movie... check out the clip here You Don't Own Me - The First Wives Club - YouTube

I used the white on white for my inspiration and CTMH Diva's for my "wives" ;)

YOU DONT OWN ME!!!

Shadow's Mom 10-12-2012 09:36 AM

Very cool challenge, Dina! I chose White Christmas

Snowflakes and Holly

What an interesting challenge today Dina! I was inspired by "These Boots Are Made For Walking" by Nancy Sinatra. When you see my card, you'll see why Ms. Fastidious is more than capapble of walking all over cancer :) Thanks for taking a peek!

dini 10-12-2012 01:29 PM

Ooh girls, I am awake and heading over to the challenge gallery - your ideas are all so FUN!! Thank you for playing along!

artystamper 10-12-2012 04:31 PM

Took me a bit to figure out what song would inspire me! I finally chose "I enjoy being a girl' from the Flower Drum Song HYCCT I Enjoy Being a Girl! by artystamper - Cards and Paper Crafts at Splitcoaststampers

pattyb 10-12-2012 05:43 PM

I was also inspired by My Fair Lady, all time favorite musical!HYCCT1212 Show Tunes

Greywolf 10-12-2012 07:12 PM

I was surprised at how few show tunes I know. Most on the list Dini gave us - I didn't even recognize. Then I found a few I knew, but couldn't think of an image that would go with them. So I settled on a long-time favorite - " Thank Heaven for Little Girls " sung with a French accent. :D

Ooh, On the Street Where You Live! I could do something with that. :) I want to use a song from a show I was in way back in my community theater days so that works. :)

Kushabella 10-13-2012 05:27 PM

Well, not exactly a show tune, but a tune - Musicals are not my thing and when I read the challenge there was just good old fashioned music running through my head. Playing a little catch up having worked the last few days....ya'll are some really creative ladies. Here is my card - Have a great day.

Just wanted to pop in and remind everyone to double check your uploads to make sure your keywords are correct, and your cards are in the HYCCT gallery, not in your member galleries... if they are in your member galleries, you won't qualify for prizes, and I would HATE for anyone to miss out on prizes!!

Right now, there are 985 cards in the HYCCT gallery, and 144 ladies are participating!
