Welcome back to the 3rd Annual Hope You Can Cling To SCS challenges! I can't believe another year has gone by! What a great cause for our cards during the month of October, Breast Cancer Awareness month. I am happy to host today!

This is my story!

1. Since many breast cancer patients are facing a long and difficult challenge in their fight against Breast Cancer, it would not surprise me, if there are many that will celebrate a birthday during their treatment at M.D. Anderson. So....

2. My own birthday falls during Breast Cancer Awareness Month and what better way to celebrate my birthday today than to host a Hope You Can Cling To challenge and watch the gallery fill up with wonderful birthday cards for Breast Cancer Patients! Cards that will all be sent and used for those breast cancer patients celebrating birthdays during their stay M.D. Anderson over the upcoming year.

3. Your challenge is an inspiration challenge. Just be inspired by the attached pictures. Birthday celebrations in pink! Pick your favorite picture and be inspired to make a birthday card in pink. Feel free to incorporate the pink cancer ribbon in your birthday card.

I was falling behind because of the pain in my foot, but today I met three challenges and am all caught up. Yay! Unfortunately, I'm still way behind on commenting, but I've seen lots of beautiful art in the galleries!

I was inspired by the stripes and balloons in the photos and knew right away which paper and image I wanted to use. So thanks for making this an easy challenge Cindy.

ZZee Birthday (open)

Lots of great cards in the gallery!
Here's my card =)

Pink Birthday

artystamper 10-19-2012 08:52 PM

Ackkkkkk - FINALLY getting my card made and posted! Not only was I at my church fair until 9:30 pm - but then my desk top computer went on the blink (I think it actually died a natural death it's been warning me for weeks and I've been ignoring it hoping it would get well on it's own!!?? LOL) and my lap top Photo shop isn't working properly so I can't do my watermark or see my pics as thumbnails - it only shows me the pics as a list which is the date!

SO - it's almost tomorrow but here's my pink b'day card!
