HYCCT Mix

I am posting the last of my Hope You Can Cling To cards for the cancer drive on Splitcoaststampers. I certainly did not do all the challenges but got twelve made, I believe. I'll just post the names of the stamps.
I thought some of the patients may want to send out Halloween cards so I made one. HYCCT1417-All That Binds Us-Bind the spine of your card/album in honor of the strength such binding gives to breast cancer patients. You may mimic a book spine which I did by using my Sew Easy to represent machine stitching.

Mix90-Use Halloween colors and two types of mediums.

Stamps-High Hopes/Ghost Trio



HYCCT1428-Make a card using pretty pink balloons. I tried to make mine pretty by using Washi tape on two of them and a stamp on the other. 

Stamps-Mark's Finest Papers and Stamps/Daffodil Greetings (sentiment), unknown flower stamp for one of the balloons


HYCCT1427-Thank x 2-express thanks using a minimum of two mediums. I used acrylic paints and embossing.
CT1014-Hopelessly Devoted-My interpretation was devoted pairs/moon and stars

Stamps-Sweet 'n Sassy/Poppies and Greetings (sentiment)

Happy Halloween to all and have a great weekend.

You did a great job of meeting the challenges with these fun cards! They're all cute, but I'm especially drawn to the last one with the great, bold color scheme! Have a great Halloween!

These are all marvelous, Miss Benzi! Love those bright colors with your ghosties (and those Xs on the side). The balloons tied to the fence are wonderful! LOVE LOVE that card, especially with the different designs on each balloon. And your moon with the navy shadow looks gorgeous with that beautiful background! You have outdone yourself with so many pretty cards on a single post! Hope you are doing well. Hugs, de

All of these are delightful, Benzi. Looks like you've been oh so busy!! A great bunch of projects. Hope you had a lovely Halloween weekend!

These are beautiful cards. Well done!

What a wonderful selection of cards Brenda and it is obvious that you put such thought into them. I'm sure they will be very appreciated. I love how they are all so different with the clever faux binding on the first card,
and the very realistic picket fence on the second. But my favourite is the beautifully painted final card which deserves to be placed in a frame on the wall!
Hope you are well
Hugs

More WOW for each of these cards. Love the bright cheerful colors and the cute designs. Reallly liked your stitching on #1, those festive balloons on #2, and the moon shadow effects with the blue & yellow embossing on #3 - perfect against the white circles on that green paper. What a galaxy. You did an outstanding job with these. TFS & Hugs
