SFTW - Anything Goes

The new challenge at Stampin' for the Weekend has been posted.  The theme for the next two weeks is "Anything Goes" and we've got Stamp Fairy for our sponsor.  With such an easy theme and a sweet sponsor I expect to see lots of entries in this challenge.

Since this is October it's time for Hope You Can Cling To at Split Coast Stampers.  That's the month of challenges for Breast Cancer Awareness.  I hope you'll find some time to stop over at Splitcoast Stampers and play along in some of the challenges, chat in some of the forums, make some friends, and have some fun.  The most important thing is that you keep in mind that it's Breast Cancer Awareness month. Take care of yourself.  Have you had your mammogram this year?  If not call to get it scheduled.

Normally I wouldn't mention another challenge in my Stampin' for the Weekend post. I might combine a couple challenges and list them below but it's pretty rare that I'll mention anything about them in the post unless there's something pretty important about them.  It's just not right to take away the attention from my teamies  but I have very strong feelings about the Hope You Can Cling To challenges.  There's a lot of healing gong on over there.  Not just for people who are suffering through the disease.  When you visit the forums and start chatting it is amazing how much people are able to share and much they are able to get off their chests.  Some times we don't realize how much making a simple card can do.

My Stampin' for the Weekend card is also for the first Hope You Can Cling to challenge, HYCCT1301A - Inner Strength. make  a card with inner strength - meaning that a dimensional image on the inside of your card can be seen through an opening in the front of your card.   This was fun to make, what you can't see is that the fairy on the inside is popped up on a springy wobble thing.  One of the things these challenges suggest is that you donate the cards to the  UT MD Anderson Cancer Center in Texas for the patients and their visitors to use.  I wish I could be there to see the face of the little girl (at least that's who I imagine receiving this card) who receives it.

Here's the deets:
stamp - Stamp Fairy "Molly Fairy"
ink - printer
paper - Close to My Heart - Dream Pop
miscellaneous - copics; Spellbinder's circle die; Wobble spring; Stampin' Up Candy Dots Subtles; Star button (shank removed); star bling

Here's the challenges:
