HYCCT1101A Pink Critters!
7 Attachment(s)
Welcome to the second annual Hope You Can Cling To challenge! I'm so excited to be here I can hardly stand it! I can't wait to spend a month creating with you - it was so much fun last year!! Let's get started...

Challenge Title: Pink Critters
Hostess: Understandblue aka Lydia
Keyword: HYCCT1101A
Date: Saturday, October 1st, 2011

There are few things that bring me more pure joy than animals. (Stamps aside, of course!) Pets teach us so much - unconditional love, the joy of unbridled play, pure loyalty, and yes, the value of a good, long nap. My aunt Maureen lost her battle with breast cancer, and throughout her 20 year fight her beloved poodles were such a source of comfort and were always by her side.


So I would like to honor the world's critters, and my challenge is for you to take any critter image and turn it pink! Anything with fur or feathers or scales or wings is fair game!

We are so glad you've joined us for this wonderful month - I can't wait to see what you create! Feel free to do multiple samples for each challenge, and remember, the goal of the challenge is to get these cards in the hands of the strong ladies being treated at MD Anderson, so be sure and follow the instructions below!

One more - a Pink Elephant

Pink Crittermas

I even got an extra card made today :D.
Any idea what way the HYCCT gallery is sorting, because it's certainly not according to upload time, as my 3rd card is showing up further down the gallery than my 1st one? It's making it hard to comment by viewing the gallery!

UnderstandBlue 10-01-2011 12:57 PM

Mine is sorted right. Scroll to the bottom and see what your sort preferences are set on...

Here's mine! I'm not in fan club so if you can't see it yet, it's still pending. :) HYCCT1101A Pink Peacock

Lydia, just checking on the thread again to find these touching photos of your Aunt Maureen. Such a great tribute to her memory and it really highlights the loyalty of our pets and how they make our life happier, no matter what. Thanks for sharing these with us.

hollerinastamps 10-01-2011 05:45 PM

Thanks for the challenge, Lydia, so fun! I finally settled on this cute guy for my critter. Announcing....Pinky the Snail
