thinking pink... again!

same prompt, second week! yepper, we've raised about $100 for the komen fund at ♥JINGLE BELLES♥ so far, but i'm feeling a bit greedy-- in a good cause, o'course-- so once again i will urge you, if you have even a few minutes of spare time between now and next wednesday night, to spend a few of them making a pink christmas card and linking up with us!

my card was made at record-setting speed (for me!) mostly because i just totally ran out of time for anything else, lol. when that happens, my strategy is to grab a sketch, use as many "ready-made" elements as i can find, and grab as many pre-coordinated items from the same manufacturer as possible. hence this lovely and very crate-centric entry right here:

(patterned papers, diecuts and border stickers: crate paper; word art made in broderbund's printshop using pharmacy and MA sexy fonts, and printed on a 3m inkjet transparency; inks: colorbox; pearls: kaiser (some colored with copics) adhesives: staples brand gluetape runner, 3m foam tape, gluedots, sewing machine)

as always, i was inspired by the lovely laurel seabrook's current photo inspiration (#45); this is one of my more tangential entries, but i'm sort of pleased with the fact that i've got the muted salmony pink and teal blue (plus a few other colors, in my case!)... a bit of a vintage vibe... and some big honkin' typography!


i used merry monday sketch #36, though you can see that i needed to rotate it 90 degrees and moved the accent to the other side, in order to accommodate my home-made word art.


seeing as it's friday, i'm linking up with miss patrice for 52-card-pick-up ,


and seeing as it is breast cancer awareness month i'm popping this in at link up for pink, too!

i do hope you've had a wonderful week, but if not, it *IS* friday and the weekend is nigh, darlings! (can i get a "woohoo"?!) ♥♥♥
