Default HYCCT1211 The Monster Mash Chatter Thread

Challenge Title: The Monster Mash
Hostess: StampingQueenJAR aka Judy
Keyword: HYCCT1211

Hello and welcome to the third annual Hope You Can Cling To Challenge! It's Day 11 and I have an inspiration challenge for you!

My challenge to you is a reminder! Get 'em mashed, squooshed, photographed, x-rayed, and checked! And to that end, we will be sharing creations inspired by "The Monster Mash"!

The lyrics are quite lengthy, so I didn't post them all here. Google has them! But verse one/chorus is:
I was working in the lab late one night
When my eyes beheld an eerie sight
For my monster from his slab began to rise
And suddenly to my surprise

He did the mash
He did the monster mash
The monster mash
It was a graveyard smash
He did the mash
It caught on in a flash
He did the mash
He did the monster mash

There are those that spend many holidays and celebration times in the hospital receiving care, and with Halloween coming up, I chose to make a fun Halloween card with dancing ghosts! You may be inspired by part of the lyrics, or by an image from the little song clip, the colors you see in the clip, or any number of things! Just share in your project description what inspired you. Just make it fun and not scary.

Note: Your card does not have to be a Halloween card.

We would like for them to receive cards throughout the month of October, but we understand if you'd like to mail all your cards at once.
5. Since these cards will be used by visitors for patients, most should be blank inside, but feel free to send cards with messages of hope for the patients in addition to your challenge cards!

The Department of Volunteer Services Unit 115
Attn: Maggi Suttles
UT MD Anderson Cancer Center

(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)

Thank you for participating in this card drive!
