If you follow my blog, then you know that in October I participate in the Hope You Can Cling To (HYCCT) challenges on Splitcoaststampers. Every day during the month a different challenge is posted to create a card to be sent to the MD Anderson Cancer Center in Texas. I usually send all my cards in one box upon completion of all the challenges but some people break it up and send them out periodically throughout the month. It is a great cause and I truly enjoy trying to come up with different cards for all of the challenges. So without further ado these are the first 3 cards I created for day 1 (on October 1st there are 3 challenges to complete).
HYCCT1301A - Inner Strength - Make a card with inner strength - meaning that a dimensional image on the inside of your card can be seen through an opening in the front of your card.
