I'm Finally Back...

First, I must apologize for not posting since August.  I have made cards for friends and family but never got the chance to post anything for September.  But for the next month you will be seeing regular posts. 

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).
