HYCCT1301B - Courage and Strength Chat Thread

Challenge Title: Courage and Strength
Hostess: stamp_momma (Lori)
Keyword: HYCCT1301B
Date: 10/01

So...I can't believe it's time for Hope You Can Cling To already! It really is my favorite time of the card making year. It's definitely one of my favorite events at Splitcoast. To see the community pull together is just an amazing thing to be a part of. Thank you! Thank you!

When I was thinking about my challenge, I kept thinking about how much courage and strength it takes to face cancer and cancer treatments, as a patient or as a loved one. Courage. Strength.

Then I started thinking about the color of mood and action. What is the color of courage? And, I almost immediately landed here. Red is the color of determination, strength, courage and love. Orange combines the energy of red and the happiness of yellow. It is the color of encouragement and determination.

My challenge to you is to create a card that shares courage and strength with either the color red or orange or a mixture of both. (Remember, no double-dipping, you can only enter each card in one HYCCT challenge...sorry!) :)

I can't wait to see your beautiful cards!

Great challenge Lori, I have a little card which I will load in the coming days... in the mean time a little shout out to all Australian's... some of you may also like to send your cards to a home based organisation... or split them between the two...

Here is the link to the details if you would like to only pay local postage and send to Chicks in Pink organisation who are kindly arranging for delivery straight to the Mater Hospital Breast Clinic.... http:////www.splitcoaststampers.com/...s-t561903.html

Hey girls! Thanks for the early enthusiasm! I can't wait to see all of that red and orange filling the gallery!

CAKath 10-01-2013 08:26 AM

Lori, I really LOVE your choice for our second challenge. It gave me a chance to honor my sis. She was so courageous and I know she is like so many strong ladies who are fighting the battle. A shout out to my Mom, Aunt Marie and sister Nancy who are all S U R V I V O R S!! May that list continue to grow. I admit I had to go back and put a little orange in there as I forgot but it's in there!

LuvLee 10-01-2013 08:51 AM

I went with orange and a butterfly since to me it really does represent such hope and a beautiful, fragile-looking strength!

I decided on orange also, with multiple layers. Still a simple card.

I had to use red! Orange doesn't figure much in my colour palette ;-), and red figures hugely in my wardrobe.

muscrat 10-01-2013 10:06 AM

I was so excited to find dp that had both orange AND red in it! HYCCT1301B You Can Do It by muscrat - Cards and Paper Crafts at Splitcoaststampers

Polka Dot Pinwheel
1 Attachment(s)
I just happened to have a pinwheel I made last weekend laying on my craft table. I mounted it on some burnt orange. It is hard to see in the picture, but the polka dot paper is actually a faded looking red and some of the flowers are red and orange.
