I hope you are polishing your flashlights, it's getting close to candy time....

Pink Christmas for Breast Cancer!

I haven't made any art at all, since being 
away from home for the past 10 days.
So I plan to make lots of stuff today and play catch up.
The theme at
is PINK!
I love PINK!
Don't you?

This is an extra special challenge for the Belles:
The "Pink Christmas" prompt will run at JINGLE BELLES from 12am on Friday, October 10th to 6pm on Wednesday, October 22nd; as in previous years, Stephanie and Lauren pledge to donate $4 per linked-up card to The Susan G. Komen Foundation.
The only requirement is that all link-ups be NEW holiday cards with some noticeable pink on them... so in other words, not just Rudolph's NOSE, lol!
Participants may use sketches, combine challenges, and include any other colors in addition to pink; you can showcase however many cards you'd like in one post, don't worry, we'll still count every single one of them towards the total!
Here is one from me.
 And another one.
Cus I like PINK!
But I said that, didn't I?
 It's nice to be home.

See you soon.
Hopefully, over at
Jingle Belles
for their challenge in support of breast cancer!!
