Default Pocket Full of Hope

Challenge Title: Pocket Full of Hope
Hostess: TexasGrammy .. a.k.a. Bev
Keyword: HYCCT1316
Date: Saturday, October 16th, 2013

Act 1: The first inspiration for my topic "Pocketful of Hope", came from the lyrics of an oldie goldie song with a somewhat uplifting message of its own:
Catch a falling star an' put it in your pocket
Never let it fade away
Catch a falling star an' put it in your pocket
Save it for a rainy day ... ...

Act 2: Reality. Life is very short. Just in the time since I first named my challenge, I have attended the funeral of a dear friend's beautiful & bright 21-year old daughter, who battled fiercely with leukemia. Ashley's battle lasted only 10 days in a Dallas-area hospital. Then suddenly, her journey here with us had ended. At Ashley's funeral, Sept. 28, we each pinned an orange ribbon to our blouse or jacket. And that has brought about a wee change to my challenge.

Pocket Full of Hope challenge :
  • Create a pocket card, or a card with a pocket on it.
  • Bonus 1: To fill the pocket with hope, add a star or stars OR a heart or hearts.
  • Bonus 2: Make it orange (leukemia) or pink (breast cancer and our traditional color for HYCCT).
