Jingle Belles ... Pink Christmas


Hello there ...

Have you seen this weeks challenge at Jingle Belles Rock? This month is breast cancer awareness month so in honour of that we are asked to make a pink Christmas card ... and those lovely Belles Lauren and Stef are going to donate a dollar for each entry this week to Susan G Komen For The Cure ... how wonderful is that!! My sweet Aunt had a double mastectomy at the age of 80 ... 4 years on she is thankfully doing well ... 
So I wasted no time in coming up with my card this week ...


picked up this leaf ribbon sometime ago ... it has a thread running through it and pulled into a flower I think it looks like a poinsettia ... what do you think?


... even sugared up some bells for the occasion ...

I now have 41 cards done for Christmas ... Phew! How about you ... have you made a start yet? 

Have a wonderful weekend and thanks ever so much for stopping by

That is a beautiful pink christmas card, I did mine last night and will post it later this evening, how could i miss a pink christmas card and the best part is for a good cause.
Talking about Christmas card, my aunt "took" almost half of what I've done, I don't even want to count how many I have now!
