Challenge Title: Stand Tall
Hostess: va.sunshine aka Teresa
Date: Thursday, October 17, 2013
I could not be happier to host a HOPE challenge again this year, touching others with my luv of creating is very near and dear to my heart!
My challenge is to "Stand Tall", make a tall/skinny card. Cancer needs to be attacked boldly, standing tall and brave; whether it is the patient or family and friends standing tall for the patient! We must stand up together against this terrible disease.
CHALLENGE: Stand Tall , make a tall card . I use a 12 x12 sheet of card stock; cut the paper 3 1/2" x 12" and fold it to be a 3 1/2" x 6" card. It fits into a business size envelope....perfect tall card!
Thank you so very much for helping, see the details below for sending in your cards.

(Please note - because MD Anderson is part of the State of Texas, they ask that no religious sentiments be used on cards sent to the Cancer Center)
This will be fun! Since this won't fit in a plastic envelope, do you have suggestions as to how to protect it? I think I could wrap it in clear plastic wrap, but maybe you have another idea? Thanks for the fun challenge!
Never mind...I saw the words "business envelope" and figured it would be too tall but if we make it 3 1/2 x 6, it should fit in one of my clear envies. I can use my envelope punch board and make an envelope to match....!

, I made one card for two challenges today, so I uploaded it earlier but have just added the keywords for this fun challenge. Thanks, Teresa. This used to be one of my favourite card formats when I first started stamping. HYCCT1317 Tall Floral Song
Teresa- love the idea of a tall card- thought this patchwork treatment with stamped hearts and gems suited the shape. Used SU's Patches mini set from 1997 thanks to my SCS friend Diane. Added some gems for fun. Here's Patriotic Happy Birthday

Here it is, my TALL card! Theresa, you read my mind. I was hoping to use this stamp some time during HYCCT and I was planning on making it a Tall card since the flower is so large! Thanks for the great challenge!
