Hope You Can Cling To

Today is my day to host a challenge for Splitcoaststampers' month-long card drive called "Hope You Can Cling To." From SCS:

"Splitcoaststampers is proud to partner with the UT MD Anderson Cancer Center for a month long card drive to benefit those affected by breast cancer. Whether your stamps cling to acrylic, wood, or to your hard drive, they hold the power to convey hope and lift the spirits of anyone who sees what you create with them. That is the inspiration for our “Hope You Can Cling To” stamping campaign for Breast Cancer Awareness Month. This event is an opportunity for paper crafters across the globe to put their talents to work creating beautiful handmade cards to send to patients and their families at the MD Anderson Cancer Center, and, in the process, turn our gallery pink!

Many in our community have been affected by breast cancer, dir
ectly or indirectly. We would love for each of the patients at the UT MD Anderson Cancer Center and their families to feel this same encouragement and inspiration... "

Here's the card I created for my challenge today, which is based on the theme that "Real Men Wear Pink" - for my challenge we're creating masculine cards that incorporate the color pink visibly somewhere. The image from Our Daily Bread designs is colored with Touch Twin Markers (colors shown below). I used a bit of recycled packaging - the damask paper is from a shopping bag. The source of the quote stamp is unknown.We hope you'll play along with us!

Thanks for stopping by!
