Hope You Can Cling To Challenge 8

Happy Saturday and thanks for taking the time to visit the charmed life blog. Nothing really to report today. I have spent the last 2 days making cards. Trying to catch up on the Hope You Can Cling To challenges on Splitcoaststampers. These are being made for the UT MD Cancer Center in Houston Tx. I have enough now to do my first mailing this week.

When you are playing catch up sometimes you don't pay close attention to the rules. I made a birthday card this morning for one of the challenges only to find out after I was finished and card photographed that I made it in the wrong color (lol)!!. I really liked the colors I used but it wont work for this challenge. My neighbors birthday is today so I will give it to her and make another one for this challenge.

So onto my card for today. This is one I made for Lori's challenge #8. She wanted us to take the letters HYCCT and use them in your card or project. This was a bit tricky but I did it creatively.

 H- half circle

Y- Yea - as my affirmative vote for Lori's challenge

C- Christmas Carol -"joy to the world"

C- Cuttlebug Embossing Folder

T- Triangle

Card Details: I used the MFT die "dizzy doily" and cut it out in Stampin-Up's  raspberry ripple for one of the sketch circles.

I used a Spellbinder circle die for the other circle in this layout and cut it out in pink pirouette. I stamped this circle with a Verve stamp from the "winter wonder" set. My sentiment is also from this same Verve set.

Christmas tree image is from the JustRite set "O Christmas Tree" stamped in lucky limeade. It is die cut with a Spellbinders pennants die.

Punched a snowflake in pink pirouette to complete my card. My card layout is this sketch from the MojoMonday sketch challenge #259.

Well that 's it for me for today. It's late and church in the morning. So until next time........God bless.

Some other challenges:
1.  One Stop Craft Challenge has an anything goes challenge.
2.  Cards Galore has an anything goes challenge.
3.  Just Keep on Crafting has an anything goes Christmas challenge.


  1. Mary, this is a perfect card for the holidays!! LOVE that DP you used and the sketch is fabulous for this! Beautiful card.

  2. I love the colors and the paper on this! Such a pretty card! Had to smile at your birthday card! I often get so caught up that I end up with a different purpose card by the time I'm finished. Especially when I can't get the sentiment I wanted to fit in the space I have!

  3. Such a sweet card Mary. Love the tree image and the pretty colors. The half doily looks great. Nice take on the sketch.

  4. Beautiful, Mary! Love the colors and patterns! Wonderful Christmas card!

  5. So very pretty Mary, I love the image and pretty dp :)
