Pink Christmas

There's a great challenge going on at the Jingle Belles blog--
to make Pink Christmas cards - cards with at least a little pink in them.

Here's one from me

For every card uploaded between
now and October 21st, they will donate two dollars to the
Breast Cancer Research Foundation.

Way to go, gals!

My Oldest Stamp Set

This card uses a little SU! set, called "Teeny Tinies"
 which was a gift from a mom of a sweet boy 
in my after-kindergarten group, some 10 years ago.  It was
the beginning of what has become an ever-expanding stash, 
taking up shelves and shelves and baskets and bins 
of all kinds of stamping goodies in a room of their own.
I'm entering this card in a couple of challenges--
 the "White Space" challenge over at LiveLoveCards and
the challenge to use something from our oldest birthday supplies,

Using Neenah Solar White, I marked off a grid of 1" squares with my sewing machine, 
 then I stamped the images in SU! Tempting Turquoise, Delicata Gold,
and Memento Ladybug and Tuxedo Black.  I layered the main panel
with some lightweight turquoise and red cardstock from Joann's, mounting it
all on a card base of Papertrey Ink True Black cardstock.
Finally, I added some assorted gold sequins and 
glazed the hearts with Glossy Accents.

I hadn't used this set in quite a while, so it was sweet to be captured
once again by its charm, with warm recollections of Susie and Zach.

Thanks for stopping by!
