Challenge Title: Window Of Hope
Hostess: kittie747
Keyword: HYCCT1227
Date: Saturday, October 27, 2012

Thank you for joining in the third annual Hope You Can Cling To Challenge. I am so thrilled for your participation in this important and inspiring event.

My challenge participation today is to honor my brother-in-law, Louis D'Agostino who lost his life to cancer on July 12, 2012 and to honor my sister, Cynthia who will love and miss him forever.

My challenge for you is to create a card with a Window of Hope. You may use window die cuts, window stamps, pictures of windows, hand cut a window using your craft knife, sketching a window, painting a window. The sky is the limit. Using pink on your card would be a special bonus.

We will never get tired of your window projects, Kittie. You are the reason I bought the window dies that I have! I'm sorry about the loss of your BIL. I lost both my father and my husband to this terrible disease. I am happy to say that my mother is a 30-year breast cancer survivor!

Just got this awesome set from SU- Reverse Prints- went with turquoise ink on cardboard for a dramatic effect with my irises, surrounded by a pair of sponged shutters. Background is embossed with Cuttlebug's Pumpkin Harvest, and I added some ribbon and a daisy border. Here's Celebrate

I just finished making 60 Halloween pockets for my kids classrooms, now I'm ready to start making my cards after dinner. Goodness, the only thing I did was cut the papers & punched, they glued, stamped & stapled.

I'm so sorry for your & your sister's loss, Kittie! Such a horrible disease. This card was made w/ my cousin, Susan, in mind. This week is the 13th anniversary of her loss w/ the fight w/ breast cancer. She was only 2 yrs older than me and so full of life. I miss her.

Here's my Pink Christmas . Thanks so much for looking!

I didn't have a window stamp so cut some windows out and popped some birdies peeking through them.

This one was kind of a tough-y for me.

I didn't have any stamps or die cuts that are windows. And then I remembered that I had pre-cut this card on my Quickutz Silhouette.

DH had to help me a little. I sprained my finger yesterday.
