i'm dreaming of a ♥PINK♥ christmas


Did you see what the fabbie Lauren and Stephanie are doing over at jingle belles?!!!!

Read on:

Welcome to the first official post of october, which as you may know is breast cancer awareness month. which is why, in honor of our sisters, our mothers, our daughters and our friends who have bravely battled --or are still coping-- with this disease, we are eschewing the more ordinary christmas colors of red and green this week in favor of PINK in all its glorious hues, shades, tints and tones!

We're asking you to make a holiday card with some pink on it somewhere! don't worry, we'll make it worth your while... because... we'd like this one to be just a little more meaningful... so for every fabulous "pink christmas" card that gets linked up between now and next wednesday night, stephanie and lauren will each donate a dollar to susan g. komen for the cure!!! that's right, $2 a card, and you can enter as many times as you like... but each card has to be newly made, and it has to have some pink on it!

Isn't that super Fantabulous?!!!

I had to play along...my participation over the last couple of weeks have been a tad bit low...but I need to get back on the wagon...

Soooo....making a pink Christmas card...easy smeasy:


Ahhh....love the Echo Park Christmas papers...makes it so very quick.  I topped the card off with an Echo Park Journaling square and a Pebble feltie embellie.

I was inspired by the latest Card Patterns sketch:


So, if you have some time to spare, I'd love it if you would play along with the oh-so-generous jingle belles...
