Hey there, I'm back with another Hope You Can Cling To card for the UT MD Anderson Cancer Center card drive through Splitcoaststampers.  Dina (aka Dini) challenged us to "Start Spreading the News!".  She wanted us to make a card inspired by a show tune (any song...title or lyrics...from any musical or movie)!  YIKES!  I didn't have any idea what I wanted to do.  There were so many great songs from musicals/movies, I just didn't know where I wanted to start.  Then as I was flipping through a catalog, I saw it..."Rebel with a Cause" and it even had a pink ribbon for Breast Cancer Awareness month.  It all clicked from there!  I computer generated the sentiment and used this awesome Mo Manning digi...oh, but what about a musical/movie song?  I've got that covered!  *grin* movie is from 1935 and called The Littlest Rebel starring Shirley Temple and the song, well, that's Polly Wolly Doodle.  Do you remember it?  Here's the chorus:

Fare-thee well,
Fare-thee well, 
Mister gloom be on your way,
If you think you're gonna worry,
you can stop it in a hurry,
sing Polly-wolly-doodle all the day!

Perfect, right?  But it gets better...Dina told us about the possibility of our HYCCT cards doing double duty through a Pink Challenge sponsored by Copic Oz.  Their challenge is to make a pink project using Copic markers then link to their post and for every project linked, $5 will go to the McGrath Foundation (one of Australia's leading Breast Cancer Foundations).  So there you have card...TWO great causes!!!  It really doesn't get any better than that!
