Jingle Belles - Pink Christmas for the Cure

Each October the Jingle Belles run their Pink Christmas challenge. The requirement - the color pink has to be prominent on the card.  The prize - they will donate $2 each for each card to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation.  How can you resist entering with a prize like that.  Having fun, getting ahead on your Christmas cards, and paying it forward to research.

Here's my first card for this week.  I experimented with a little bit of Fuchsia Colorburst on watercolor paper. The little scarf-wearing penguin is from Unity Stamps.  I usually avoid glitter, but the urge to give that oval some kind of frame pushed me into glittering it.  I know.  It's a bit of a mess, but it'll do.  

So all my card-making friends out there, and even those of you who don't normally, but would like to give it a try, why not give this challenge a go?  I know you've got it in you!

Edited to add:  The total donation for each card is $4.  Love those Jingle Belles Hostesses!


  1. We actually donate $2 each, so it's $4 for each card ... I am lovin' that cute little pink scarf ... so very glad you joined our ♥ Pink Christmas... for the Cure! ♥

  2. You say, "a bit of a mess"... I say, "Incredibly and amazingly FAB-U-LOUS!" (potayto, potahto, lol!) But seriously I loooooooooooooove this & not just bc it's my favorite shade of ColorBurst but truly, I love the way you've combined each element to add up to so much more than the sum of their parts! (Plus that bird is SO CUTE!) Thanks very much for helping us raise money for the Breast Cancer Research Fund at JINGLE BELLES! ♥♥♥

  3. Such a cute card for a great cause!

  4. That's cute. I love what you did with the bird, he's a sweetie. Maybe it's a she, with the pink scarf, or maybe it's the sentiment in the kit that makes me see it as a him!

  5. That is really pretty Lorraine! I made my own cards one year, but maybe had the wrong type of glue because all the doo-dads fell off! I'd love to try that one day again though! :)


It's always so nice to hear from visitors. Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment.
