Today I am hostessing a great challenge over at Splitcoast Stampers Hope You Can Cling To (HYCCT13) and I think you’re going to love playing along:
Please consider making a card for this challenge (or all of them – you’ll have lots to choose from) and sending it to MD Anderson!

Just head over to Splitcoast Stampers and check out the Master thread. I will try to come back over (I’m HYCCT1309) and post a direct link to my challenge.

But here are a few of my cards ….




Whether you are a survivor, currently fighting your own battle or you’re part of a support network: you have superman strength – STRENGTH OF STEEL! To celebrate that strength, show off your metal Feel free to use aluminum foil in your creation, recycled soda cans, home improvement flashing, or use a metal embellishment! Check out our samples! To use aluminum foil – simple adhere it (glue stick works great) to a piece of cardstock. Once its adhered – you can emboss it, punch it, die cut it, etc! If you haven’t ever used a soda can for a fabulous embellishment – rinse one out and check out these tutorials:
Soda Can flower : Splitcoaststampers – Tutorials
Metal Stars: Splitcoaststampers – Tutorials

Are you having fun? We hope so because the cards you are making are going to bring some much love & joy into the people going through cancer, their caregivers and loved ones.
