We pride ourselves on being great hosts, but guests have limited access to some of our incredible artwork, our lively forums and other super cool features of the site! You can join our incredible papercrafting community at NO COST. So what are you waiting for?
Hello and welcome to the 4th annual Hope You Can Cling To challenge and card drive - we are thrilled to have you here with us.
We are so excited for your cards to start rolling into MD Anderson and brightening the lives of women and men who we know have a lot of inner strength.
That is what inspired my challenge for our kickoff - inner strength. I've seen so much of it in people whose lives have been touched by cancer - it's very humbling.
My challenge to you is to make a card with inner strength - meaning that a dimensional image on the inside of your card can be seen through an opening in the front of your card.
Dimensional ideas include:
-Popping an image or element up on a dimensional
-Stamping an image on the inside of the card with heat embossing for dimension
-Adding a rhinestone or glitter to the inside image
Since I'm one of those people who never stamps on the inside of a card, this really was a challenge for me! I decided to pop up a butterfly on the inside of the card and position him so that his wings would actually move when the card is opened.
I can't wait to see what you do with this!
Thank you again for joining us, and see the details below for sending in your cards.

I've made a card but I can't get it to upload into the HYCCT challenge gallery. My computer is telling me that gallery does not exist? Is it me or a Splitcoast glitch?
I just tried it and it was there for me. In main galleries, I picked Events and Special Collections, in Sub Galleries I picked HYCCT, and another sub popped up letting me pick HYCCT 2013. Does that help?
Whoooo HOOOO! And we're off!!
Just back from working out and grocery store, have to clean & cook. One of the side effects of my husband's cancer surgery is that he needs to eat small amounts frequently - and not everything appeals to him ... I spend lots of time cooking now
Can't wait to try this challenge - later tonight!

You're choosing Special Collections, then Hope You can Cling To, then Hope You can Cling To 2013? (2 subcats under special collections)
When I first tried to upload my card the third category did not come up. Not sure why so I left for my meeting and tried uploading again just now and the second sub category came up for me. My card can be found here

I bought Verve's "Words of Wisdom" specially for this month - so what better way to kick off than by breaking it out.
Loved this, Lydia. I don't use apertures often enough. I think I overdosed when I started card-making and bought packs of precut aperture cards, LOL.
Should I have put an "A" behind the keyword? It did not have one on the master thread but I noticed the other two were labeled "B" and "C".
Anyway, here is mine. I really cheated and used this cute little band of flowers I found on some dp. The butterfly is centered in the circle cutout, the card was not laying right when I took the pic. I need photography lessons *sigh*
