Challenge Title: Impossible Things Happen
Hostess: mrslaird aka Paula
Keyword: HYCCT1323
Date: Wednesday, October 23rd, 2013

While I was thinking about my challenge I kept singing this part of the song "Impossible" by Rodgers and Hammerstein from Cinderella.

But the world is full of zanies and fools,
Who don't believe in sensible rules,
And won't believe what sensible people say,
And because these daft and dewy eyed dopes keep building up impossible hopes,
Impossible, things are happening every day.

And to quote the other Cinderella, the dreams that you wish can come true! Let's celebrate the magic of hope, faith, happy thoughts, and believing in the impossible.

My challenge is to make a card inspired by a fairy tale .

I love that song and I love this challenge, Paula.

T. Joy 10-23-2013 04:51 AM

LOL! Thanks, Paula! I'm going to be singing that song ALL DAY now!! :rolleyes: I'll have to go get the movie from the library, too. :) Great challenge!

ohmypaper! 10-23-2013 04:55 AM

Terrific samples!!!! Fun challenge! I am going to think on this one while I tidy up the house a bit!

I hope that's happy and not oh crud! :)

So y'all know, it doesn't have to BE a fairy tale card, just inspired by a fairy tale. So shoes for Cinderella (or being over housework!), apples or mirrors for Snow White, taking a nap/rest up for Sleeping Beauty, you could go punny and make a sports card since many fairy tales feature "balls", plain old pumpkins, forest creatures, houses in the woods, you could make a scary Halloween card because old school fairy tales are kinda creepy. Just sell it in your description! ;)

muzbysmom 10-23-2013 05:39 AM

I really did freak when I say "inspired by a fairy tale" until I googled to get a list of fairy tales and realized I did have an appropriate stamp for the challenge! I came up with a Christmas card using the deer image from an Inkadinkado set called "Holiday Silhouettes"...

muscrat 10-23-2013 05:48 AM

My mind went blank at first so I went to wikipedia to find a list of fairy tales and came up with The Gingerbread Man!

hbrown 10-23-2013 06:04 AM

LOL!! Thank goodness for google, huh? LOL I love this challenge!! It made me think of all the things I remembered from my childhood - ahhhhhhh happy memories! Disney movies rock!!

peeps321 10-23-2013 06:30 AM

I wasn't sure about this one at first..had to search high and low...and came across a stamp I hadn't used in a long time. So thanks for getting me to use an oldie but goodie :p

I to went to google & wiki,i thinki have an idea now will do it tomorrow as it is 1 am here in the land of Kangaroos & Koalas :)

eliotstamps 10-23-2013 07:30 AM

such a great challenge idea, Paula! I am a few days behind but hope to make some cards tonight.

kramomma 10-23-2013 07:33 AM

Mine would be...oh crud because I don't like fairytales...I like children's stories...I was thinking Winnie the Pooh...

Will have to think on this one with the thought of "impossible" being my focus...

Clownmom 10-23-2013 07:33 AM

I had to really think about this one. But I finally decided on The Little Mermaid.

HYCCT1323 Choose Hope
 
I love the hope and endless magical possibilities that the Fairy Godmothers from Cinderella inspire, so I did this card- using a sponged background to hint at sky and meadow, with emphasis on the message- here's Choose Hope

mrslaird 10-23-2013 07:49 AM

I didn't mean to make it hard for y'all! ;)

Some other ideas are - peapods - because they are definitely close enough to beanstalks.
Bears - three bears.
Anything in a bowl, because it could be porridge.
Weddings or anniversary - happily ever after y'all
Books
Fairy tale colors - blue fairy, red riding hood, snow white, etc
Candy houses
Toys

Crafty Julia 10-23-2013 07:52 AM

HYCCT1323 courage, Faith, Life
 
Paula- awesome challenge! I choose Snow White for my 2nd card as she had the courage to start a new life in the forest. I added some simple flower/button combos for accents- here's Courage, Faith, Life

Frog Prince for me - always fun to pull Unfrogettable out. And I think this will be a fun card to give :D.
I must say I'm with kramomma in preferring children's stories to the classic fairy tales. When you think about those fairy tales - a lot of them have a pretty dark side to them :shock: before the happy ending.

Paula, this is a very clever challenge....many, many ways to go. I chose the ballerina shoes, because they remind me of a princess. Here is my card.

If you have ever read the original stories of some of the fairytales you would not be telling them to young children!


Even some of the original children's stories are a bit to stomach for me...ever read the original of The 3 Little Pigs?


I think I have an idea for thinking towards the impossible...and will go with that...it will make a nice masculine card!

Kathleen Curry 10-23-2013 09:33 AM

Lots of great ideas for this one! The mice were a huge part of Cinderella, so a mouse card would be fun. Or how about the tea party in Alice and Wonderland? A tea themed card would be great (I may go that route). There are so many wonderful ways to interpret this one. Great challenge!

nines 10-23-2013 09:36 AM

Here is my card for today's HYCCT challenge called Impossible Things Happen.

Yes, those are great ideas! Along with tea, other Alice ideas are a watch, a belated birthday card of any kind, an unbirthday card, cards, or a caterpillar. :) And Peter Pan has pirates!
