The Jingles Belles challenge was this:
in honor of our sisters, our mothers, our daughters and our friends who have bravely battled --or are still coping-- with this disease, we are eschewing the more ordinary Christmas colors of red and green this week in favor of PINK in all its glorious hues, shades, tints and tones.
My best friends mom died of breast cancer 3 yrs ago this past September, and just yesterday they were at the Grand Canyon releasing her ashes. Her breast cancer moved very quickly...went in to the ER July 4th for shoulder pain and was gone by Sept. Then there is my stepmom, who celebrated 5 yrs free of her breast cancer last year but then lost my dad the same year to another type of cancer. Cancer is a horrible, horrible disease and I hope a cure for it is found soon!
Here is the card for these 3 challenges:
Now, the current challenge over at Jingles Belles is to be inspired by a Christmas song. I smiled as soon as I saw this challenge because I LOVE Christmas music! I listen to it year round and have an extensive Christmas music collection. I immediately thought of this stamp, which is one of the new Christmas sets in the fall/winter SU catalog. When I see this picture I think of "God Rest Ye Merry Gentleman" or "We Wish You A Merry Christmas" or even "Do You Hear What I Hear". I love this image!
