pretty in (GAH!) pink

woohoo! it's time for pink christmas again at ♥JINGLE BELLES! if you've ever hung out with me in october you probably know the drill, and there's an FAQ type post just above this one, but basically: every year in october, in honor of breast cancer awareness month, stephanie and i host a jingle belles challenge where we ask everyone to make holiday cards that are, (as the title suggests, lol) *PINK*... and then we each donate $2 to the breast cancer research foundation for each card that gets linked up. if you're wondering why this year it's (GAH!) pink christmas, you may remember that our friend leslie hanna (aka the crooked stamper) who passed away last december, was always a big cheerleader for this event, despite being a famously ardent NON-fan of what she always called, (GAH!) pink. so it just seemed like this year we should make it a bit of a tribute and remembrance of that lovely, snarky, crafty, fun lady. in fact, we've asked a few friends from SOS to come along and help out, so be sure to hop over to ♥JINGLE BELLES♥ and see the bumper crop of (GAH!) pink christmas cards we've assembled! meanwhile, here's my card:

patterned paper: dcwv, my mind's eye, american crafts, lawn fawn; sentiment badge: kaiser craft; snowflake and dot stickers: my mind's eye; floral: from an old bouquet; ink: colorbox; adhesives: elmers brand gluetape, 3m foam tape, gluedots, sewing machine

my card combines a few different paper lines, old and new, assorted embellishments and a FAB SKETCH (#432) from sketch saturday, whom i thank very much indeed for the shout out on my "aloha birthday girl" card from last week!

and now why not hop on over to ♥JINGLE BELLES♥ where miss stephanie and a few of our lovely friends have some gorgeous (GAH!) pink cards to show off! ♥♥♥
