HYCCT1213 Hope Is the Thing Chatter Thread

Challenge Title: Hope is the Thing!
Hostess: bfinlay (Bridget)
Keyword: HYCCT1213
Date: Saturday, October 13, 2012

Hello, and welcome to day 13 of our HYCCT card drive - we're so delighted to have you join us!

My challenge for you is to be inspired by the poet
Emily Dickinson :

<a href="http://www.flickr.com/photos/bdfinlay/8022909597/" title="images by bdfinlay, on Flickr"><img src="http://farm9.staticflickr.com/8449/8022909597_ae9443824b.jpg" width="208" height="273" alt="images"></a>

Hope is the thing with feathers
that perches in the soul
and sings the tune without the words
and never stops at all.

Let your imagination fly with this, it can be anything that inspires you in this stanza about "hope" from Emily's poem, just let us know what it is in your card description - for example, your card could include birds , songs , music , or even something (anything!) "perching" . Or you could make a card without words ! It always leaves so much scope for the person sending the card as it can be used for any occasion!

For inspiration, check out the lovely samples made by Dina, Victoria, Kathy and Lori - thanks so much, girls!

HYCCT1213 Bunny with Daisies
 
Bridget- great challenge! I went with a cute bunny and flowers, as Cheerfulness can be a good companion to Hope. I used TAC's I Love Easter for my bunny in a flowerpot, and added a dc blossom and leaf. The background is embossed with Tim Holtz's Steampunk EF, and I finished with a ribbon/dc leaf/button. Here's Bunny with Daisies

hbrown 10-13-2012 11:53 AM

What a wonderful challenge! I'll have to ruminate on this one and look around my studio to see what inspires me. :-)

What a lovely challenge Bridget! Emily is one of the poets I can actually understand!

Here is my card - this is the first one I have linked this way - it shows up in the HYCCT gallery, but not in the challenge gallery. The keyword is correct, so I will try it this way. Hope it doesn't show up twice!

Jody, great to have you post here, it just means that those who've subbed to this thread get notified that another lovely card has gone into this gallery! It only shows up once as long as your keyword is correct!
