Hi peeps - are we all ready for Christmas with cards made and presents  wrapped?  No, neither am I !  So, here  is an opportunity to make at least one more Christmas card -
our challenge at In The Pink this fortnight is ..... 
Of course, it doesn't have to be a card - it could be a gift box, a Turkey, or anything else  Christmassy, but it must have LOTS of PINK on it ! 
We had so many gorgeous entries for our last challenge, it was difficult for Christine and I to choose just 4 Perfect Pinkies - do pop over to the Blog to find out who they are!

Card-stock - Stampin' Up and Bazzil.
Image - Mo Manning Christmas Fairy Holly, coloured with Copics.
Nestie Dies -  Labels #1, and Lacy Squares.
Sentiment - Cuttlebug alphabet die, and Woodware tiny snowflake punch.
Glossy Accents on the  snow globe, and SU Dazzling Diamonds glitter here and there.

( the detail looks so much better when you click the pic. to enlarge - honest it does!! )
Look forward to seeing more of  your  fabulous projects -
take care, keep warm, and Happy Crafting

I would like to enter my card into 
Mo's Challenge - Favourite colour combo + a Mo image.
Fab.'n' Funky Challenge - Use 3 of something (3 letters).

Love and Hugs,

Oh Sylvia this is gorgeous.

Love your image and the lovely clean layout!

Had to smile at your description of the challenge and saying it could anything .. .. even a Turkey .. .. but it must have lots of pink on it!!!

Good job the challenge finishes before Christmas day or else lots of us would be entering slices of turkey covered in a mixture of bread and cranberry sauce!!

Hope you are having a lovely weekend.

Love Jules xx
