I'm dreaming of a PINK Christmas

  I have been mass-producing cards for Operation Write Home (OWH) the past two days.  My craft room is a disaster!  After I finished my OWH cards (I'll post later this month), I realized that I had not made a Jingle Belles card this week.  I looked at my scraps from my OWH cards and decided to use what was left of this double-sided My Mind's Eye "Colorful Christmas Winter Wonderland."  I love those pink trees!  After cutting the green base layer and the tree pattern layer I had a scrap left just big enough to cut this tree from my Cricut "Campin' Critters" cartridge.  The tree is actually about 5 1/2" tall, but it was cut on the Cricut @ 10 1/2"  forest layer 1-shift (p.62).  I added some EAD Stickerz:  baubles for the tree, a star, and two presents under the tree.  This was a fast scrappy card :)

I am entering this at this week's Jingle Belles *PINK* Christmas card challenge.  I enjoy non-traditional colors for Christmas, and I think PINK may be one of my favorite non-traditional Christmas colors.  Although pink may become a traditional color because I have seen a lot of pink in Christmas papers the past couple of years!

Happy Wednesday!  Come back tomorrow to see if you won my blog candy!!!

you know, it's funny you say that, because i have noticed that there are a few more papers with pink and green each year... if the combo isn't officially traditional yet, it's definitely in the "popular alternative" category, lol!

i am ♥LOVING♥ what you did here, missus, to "quick and scrappy" i would add "awesome and delightful"!!!

thanks for playing along with us, it is especially cool this week in honor of the great cause!!! ♥
