Challenge Title: READ ALL ABOUT IT
Hostess: Misstreez (Theresa)
Keyword: HYCCT1214
Date: Sunday, October 14th, 2012

Words! They're all around us. We use the written word to communicate to each other. Many people have taken the time to write, and sometimes share, their personal experiences, good and bad, about challenges faced, fears overcome, triumphs and survivals. We read these stories to gain an understanding, appreciation and find an inspiration we might be able to apply to our lives.

Many personal stories about breast cancer have been recorded in the written word also, so that we can better understand what the people affected by the disease are going thru. It's during these times of great challenges that the words of hope, encouragment, peace, and strength can have an uplifting effect for the reader.

My challenge to you today is to simply make a card that FEATURES TEXT in some way in your creation. Use a stamp, patterned paper or even pages from a book, but use text somewhere and have a little bit of fun creating a card that will be well recieved. A bit short on ideas? Then check out the attachments for some text inspiration.

HYCCT1214 What's Cooking?
Cooking and Eating are times for conversation and celebration at our house with family and friends- so I choose this stamp set for my card. Added a strip of dp with stylized farm couple, and a bit of stitching. Here's What's Cooking?
