Here is my card for the Leaves Hope you Can Cling to challenge. I used punched out leaves from a Martha Stewart punch that I borrowed from my aunt. The sentiment is from TPC stamp set.
I made this card for the Cover up Hope You Can cling To challenge. I used The Paper Studio KellerKurtz and Company paper pad. The sentiment is from a The Craft's Meow stamp set called Kindred Spirits.
This card I made for the Steel challenge. I have never made a card like this before. The background is aluminum foil that put through my Big shot with a Tim Holtz embossing folder. The sentiment is from a TPC stamp set.
This card I made for the Words to Inspire challenge. I made this aluminum piece in the background for the previous challenge, but didn't know how to use it. I used versamark and a Hero Arts background stamp set on the purple card stock. The stamps are from Gina K designs called Hope is Faith. Thanks for stopping by.

Here is my card for the sixth challenge. The challenge was to make a card using your punches. I used five different punches. See picture below (one is not pictured). The button bingo stamp is from Unity. The heart border is a Papertrey ink die.
The next challenge was to use pink camo. I don't have anything with pink camo, so I attempted to make my own pink camo paper.
Here is my first attempt. It didn't go so well.
The next challenge was to choose a color of cancer that someone you know has or had. I chose Periwinkle for stomach cancer. My dear friend just a couple months older than me died of stomach cancer this past May. I still miss her a lot. She was such an inspiration. It is so sad that someone so young had to suffer so much. I am not sure if my card is really Periwinkle, but I tried. The shape frame stamp is from Unity. The sentiment is from Hero Arts. The flower background stamps are Stampin Up stamps from Hand Painted Petites.
Lastly, just for fun, I thought I would show these little wooden people I painted for my sister's wedding. They are the cake toppers. She is getting married in 12 days! I can't believe it!!!
Thanks for stopping by.

The next card is for the second challenge. This challenge was to make a card that was red, orange or both. Those are the colors of courage and strength. I used an American Crafts paper pad. The Dress form is a from the Cricut cartridge "Forever Young" and the sentiment is a Hero Arts sentiment.
This card is for challenge number 4, which is to make a card that would make the person receiving it smile.
I believe the card is from Artist Impressions. I made the card in a class.
PS. I am sad today to find out that a friend's brother just died of cancer. It wasn't breast cancer obviously, but it brings home how real cancer is affecting people's lives. I will be making some additional cards to send to this sweet family that just lost their son and brother. I hope these cards I make for the Hope you can cling to challenge will bless those that receive them.
