Hope You Can Cling to Cards

(if you are looking for my 'Operation Julie's Smile' post - please scroll down, thank you)
Hello friends & followers!  I have two more cards for you today - both are created for the 'Hope You Can Cling To' challenges over at Splitcoaststampers, a card drive for the patients of the UT MD Anderson Cancer Treatment Center.  The first is for my friend Lee's Challenge: HYCCT1102 - Inspirational Cupcake Photo Challenge.  I used Card Patterns' Sketch 135, 'Bars Vol. 1' by Skipping Stones Design and some yummy papers from Echo's Park's 'Be Mine' collection to create this card:
I rotated the sketch and created little breast cancer support ribbons and adhered them to these big black buttons in place of the little circles in the sketch. I hope whoever receives this card will like it.  In addition to the inspiration and the sketch, this card fulfills the requirements of the following additional challenges as well:


My second card was created for my friend Lori's challenge HYCCT1107 - The Colors of Hope - to create a card using the colors yellow, green and brown.  I used Sweet N' Sassy Stamps' Sweet Stop Sketch 128 and their cute Olivia Owl image (I have it in a clear stamp set, but she is still available as a digi) and some papers from DCWV's Blossoms & Butterflies stack to create this card:
I colored Olivia with Copic markers and stuck yellow button centers in the middle of some brown flowers, used some jute ribbon that I love, and paper pierced along the bottom near the 'I'm hootin' for ya!' sentiment. In addition to the color & sketch challenges, this card also fulfills the requirements of the following additional challenges as well:


Thank you so much for stopping by my blog and viewing my creations!  I hope you have a wonderful Columbus Day Weekend!
