Challenge Title: Hope is the Thing!
Hostess: bfinlay (Bridget)
Keyword: HYCCT1213
Date: Saturday, October 13, 2012

Hello, and welcome to day 13 of our HYCCT card drive - we're so delighted to have you join us!

My challenge for you is to be inspired by the poet
Emily Dickinson :


Hope is the thing with feathers
that perches in the soul
and sings the tune without the words
and never stops at all.

Let your imagination fly with this, it can be anything that inspires you in this stanza about "hope" from Emily's poem, just let us know what it is in your card description - for example, your card could include birds , songs , music , or even something (anything!) "perching" . Or you could make a card without words ! It always leaves so much scope for the person sending the card as it can be used for any occasion!

For inspiration, check out the lovely samples made by Dina, Victoria, Kathy and Lori - thanks so much, girls!
