Question: I know we should stay away from "get well" and sympathy cards, but is "just looking in on you to see how you're doing" okay? I want to be sensitive to what I'm sure are really raw emotions...

Wow, I looked on here yesterday and nothing was showing up. First thing tonight still nothing, but then I clicked on HYCCT and up came the master thread. Yea! I am so looking forward to all the challenges.
I only have one problem! Could someone make our closing happen? My house is all packed up. We were supposed to close on Sept 30th. Sold our house to someone who had sold their house and was also supposed to close on Sept 30th. They didn't close - their buyer is waiting for money. So we didn't close. We have a house to rent (will be renting for a year while we build a new house) but now we don't know if we dare sign the lease on it until we have a definite closing date. Our buyers are trying to work out something with their buyer so we can all get on with our lives.
I didn't pack my stamps until a few days ago because I needed the therapy while we were getting through all this and now I just can't wait to get them out of their boxes and get stamping again. So I may have some catching up to do by the time I get started, but I will get them all in before November! Who cares if anything else gets unpacked!
Looking forward to chatting with all of you. TTFN Pat

I have a question as we get started this month...

I know the sample cards each day were posted earlier than the day they come up here in this forum. I wanted to go back and comment on some of them, but the only way I see to do that is to take note of the watermark and who made the card, know their SCS name, and go to their gallery and find the card to comment on. I haven't been able to get to the SCS page with their card from the sample attachments in the threads in this forum.

Is there an easier way?

Yes - there's a link to the challenge gallery for each challenge in the challenge post.

There's also a link to the main Hope You Can Cling To gallery with ALL the cards and you can sort that by date and start at the beginning, but my recommendation is to click into the challenge gallery for each challenge. Start now while there are only about 100 for each challenge

Well, duh, I knew that but wasn't thinking. Brain fried... Oh, well, I'll just say that I wanted to ask the question for *someone else who is new* so that they had the information

This is one of my favorite things on Splitcoast! I have been doing house renos and this is my first chance to check out the challenges. I hope to be able to complete every one this year and I have today off. I know I'm behind, but only by 6, so here's to some fun in my craft room today!!!

I think it's wonderful that SCS does this every October. It would also be a wonderful way to make women aware of a much more deadly female cancer, ovarian cancer. The month for that is September, and the awareness ribbon is teal. Because of no actual annual test to detect this disease, and it's symptoms are often missed because they are often mistaken for GI issues, most women are diagnosed when it is too late. Google NOCC and read the symptoms. It may save your life. Maybe next year?

Each year we do have people suggest something similar, and I appreciate that kindness and awareness!

While we recognize that there are thousands of diseases we could focus on, we chose a wonderful partner in MD Anderson, and our event is timed both with our original event kickoff on World Cardmaking Day in our first year and Breast Cancer awareness month.

But the utmost priority in this challenge is the card drive for the patients at MD Anderson, and it's the concentrated effort by so many people for a whole month that does so much good for the people being treated for cancer in Houston.

We do have an ongoing challenge called Cards for a Cause, so I encourage you to participate in that challenge and suggest your favorite destination to our sweet hostess, Teresa Kline, a.k.a. va.sunshine. That challenge has a new destination each month.

We love the sunshine this event brings into the lives of the men and women at MD Anderson, and we hope you can participate!

Oh it's just beginning! You're certainly not too late!!

First - read the first post in this thread - that will give you the general info about the challenges.

Next, read the FAQ: Hope You Can Cling To FAQ

Then just browse the main forum: Hope You Can Cling To Challenge Forum - Splitcoaststampers for the Master Challenge Thread (this has all the daily challenges with no chatter) and some other fun goodies. And ask questions if you get lost - everyone is super helpful!

Thank you UnderstandBlue, for your reply, and your direction to Hope for a Cause. MD Anderson also has a well-known center for women with ovarian cancer. I can contribute to that!

I'm up and stamping! I am enjoying all the challenges, but I'm hesitant to upload cause I'm not too savy with all the computer stuff. I'll give it whirl however, and I'll ask for help if I get stuck. Think Pink!

We'd love for you to send them throughout the month - the patients love to see them start rolling in and they send me pictures when they do.

I have been looking forward to each day, getting a new challenge for HYCCT. This is my first year participating. Perhaps my mother's cancer made this all more real to me and made me realize the importance of love and encouragement through our cards. Thanks Lydia and the other girls who helped make this happen. :>)

This year has meant soo much more to me with finding more and more people facing different types of cancers~ My best friend called me today to tell me her mom was just told she has pancreatic and liver cancer...my best friend was crying and that really hit home. My two good friends have breast cancer one is doing better than the other. One was just told she has stage 4 and it is in her bones my heart goes out to all...

Just wanted to send out a sincere thanks to everyone who has chosen to spend some time with us this month in the HYCCT gallery. Whether you completed 1 card or 30, it's awesome. For my fellow hostesses and Lydia, you are all creative and inspiring and thanks for your time and encouragement throughout this month. I am getting my box prepared to send off to Maggie at MD Anderson and hope that everyone is able to do the same. Hugs!
