Default 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!
