Hi everyone!
I'm so happy to be back this year hosting a challenge for this wonderful event!

My challenge to you is to make a card that will put a smile on someone's face. It can be a fun sentiment, a silly image or maybe some bright colors. What ever you think would make person happy when they opened up the envelope.

Jeanne S 10-02-2013 05:16 AM

The girls knocked it out of the park with their samples for sure!

muzbysmom 10-02-2013 05:37 AM

Good morning ladies! Great challenge! My craft room is torn up today. Putting in new flooring. Will play catch up tomorrow or Friday. Glad I still have Internet access with my smart phone! I'll be able to check out everyone else's creations!

Angie.Lindeen 10-02-2013 05:45 AM

Such a happy challenge! What a motivational way to get through the day at work - thinking about a happy card makes a happy day!

Greywolf 10-02-2013 05:46 AM

Oh happy day! Everyday should be a good day. I should be able to make a card for this challenge without any problem. Be back later.

Went into my stamping area and WOW! Did I ever leave a mess yesterday! Had to do some serious cleaning before I could do today's challenge. I did take some time today to tidy up before I left.
Here is my card for this challenge.

You've Been In My Thoughts Fairy


as I have been going through my own cancer battle, it's been nice to get cards sometimes from people that are just reminders I haven't been forgotten. I can't leave my house much anymore and don't do things I used to do. my life as I use to know it has changed so drastically. some days people with a serious illness just need to know that someone is thinking about them, if only for a brief moment. that alone is enough to bring a big smile and make the day much, much brighter! :)

Thank you Jennifer for sharing that. The Card Ministry sends cards to several cancer patients & survivors in our church. I imagine they feel the same way about getting the cards, so you encouraged me on their behalf. Thanks!

Greywolf 10-02-2013 08:41 AM

Mine didn't turn out the way I had envisioned it, but I hope it will cause the recipient to smile.

Smiles

That is SO helpful! Sometimes I don't know what to say or write, so I don't do anything at all. Thanks for sharing that even a little thought goes a long way!!

Jennifer, thank you for sharing! This is strengthening my resolve to send more cards even if I only say hi inside.

Great challenge for HYCCT, Jeanne. Here's my card:

Just peeking into the thread and see lots of fun activity here. The samples really rock! I can't wait to see how everyone interprets this challenge. Great idea, Jeanne. I know the patients deserve a reason to smile.

catdidit 10-02-2013 10:25 AM

Fun challenge Jeanne! I made two, because one involves no stamping and I always think thats kinda cheating, haha! :D Here they are:

No stamping one

Oh Happy Day!

Cook22 10-02-2013 11:22 AM

Here's mine. Could be a birthday card but it doesn't have to be, so I don't think I'll put a sentiment on the inside.

Even at 5 in the afternoon there was no daylight left for a decent photo :(.

Here's mine in honor of Mallomars being back on the shelves. For those not familiar with Nabisco's Mallomars they are round graham crackers topped with a marshmallow and covered in dark chocolate. Because the chocolate is good quality chocolate, they cannot be shipped in the warm weather.
