JB41: i'm dreaming of a ♥PINK♥ christmas

this week at ♥JINGLE BELLES♥ we're doing something completely different, and even a bit philanthropic! in honor of breast cancer awareness month we're asking everyone to turn their holiday cards PINK this week-- in recognition of which, stef and i will each be donating a dollar for every card linked up by the deadline to susan g. komen for the cure!

i'm really excited about this one, because i am secretly (well, secretly until now!) hoping we'll get THE MOST CARDS EVER and raise loads of money for a fabulous cause!

also, i just really *like* pink christmas cards, too! :) :) :)

(patterned paper: sei, the paper co; eiffel tower fabric paper: michael miller memories; snowflakes: jolees; roses: prima, recollections; plastic and fabric thickers: american crafts; ribbon: tim holtz, ki memories; ink: colorbox; adhesives: uhu gluestick, 3m foam tape, tombow monorunner, sewing machine)

i know a lot of people wonder *HOW* i mail cards that are as lumpy as this; but a lot of my cards go into packages with gifts. also, i am well known at the post office as the lady who sends A LOT of cards that are reinforced with corrugated cardboard and taped securely into padded jiffy mailers. yep, it costs a little more, but i enjoy the freedom of making unique and crazy cards! :)

i hope you'll come and join us at ♥JINGLE BELLES♥ this week, make a card--or two, or three--and help us make some money for a wonderful cause! inlinkz closes at 6pm next wednesday, so what are you waiting for??!?! ♥♥♥
