in the ♥PINK♥!

We always appreciate your efforts, ♥JINGLE BELLES♥, but this time you've outdone yourselves! Not only were your pink card creations magnificent, but when we added in multiples, there were a total of ♥81♥ cards submitted which means you helped us to raise $324.00 to benefit Susan G. Komen for the Cure!!! Take a bow, every one of you, and please accept our heartfelt thanks!

Meanwhile, the cards themselves really were awesome; here are a few that particularly caught our eye:

Brenda of Butlers Abroad
...paired super-cute mice with super-bright colors to create a card whose praises we cannot sing loudly enough!

shanna aka bananastamper of the stamping banana
...used hot pink as an accent color, along with lime green, black, and beige, in a combination that is both striking and delightful!

...added just a few accents (and one very handsome deer!) to some lovely patterned paper, for a card that's simply perfect!

So who will get the fun surprise pack of christmas card-making goodies we hinted at? According to the fine folks at the lucky number is...

which means our winner is...

♥Marie Bingaman♥
of ANOTHER Card-Making Blog?!

We *swear* that this was the genuinely RANDOM pick as chosen by Random. org!!! Though secretly we were planning to thank Marie for her enthusiasm, the *10* gorgeous cards she made for this prompt, and the way she spent this fortnight cheering on her fellow participants, all of which was VERY much appreciated!!!

(But we promise, she really did win the prize fair and square!!!)

Congratulations, Marie, 
and thank you very much indeed! 
(Please email us at jinglebellesrock @ to claim your prize!)

Many thanks again to *EVERYONE* who played along with us for such a good cause, especially those of you who made more than one card just to help us raise the totals.  We sooooo appreciate it, and we know that Susan G. Komen will love getting this donation! ♥♥♥

Come on back at midnight when we'll have a brand new prompt we hope will help you scare up some inspiration!

Wow, great pink creations. I think I may need to use my BG supplies to CASE Shanna's card. Thanks, Lauren and Stef, for supporting a good cause and what a great turn-out! And lastly, congrats to Marie, who sounds like she very much deserved to win the goodies offered (not to mention the 10 cards she has added to her Christmas card stash LOL).

Good job on the $$$$ that was raised. Was so gratifying to read this. And big congratulations to Marie, and I'm sure she will enjoy the goodie package. The 3 cards you featured are lovely. I had seen Brenda's card at her blog, but it was great to enjoy 2 more really sparkling entries. Such a worthwhile challenge. Loved the sloth banner. Keep that talented DH around!And a cute use of the green monster & great idea on the Dymo labeling too! TFS & enjoyed the challenge very much.

Well, ladies, I'm just glad I could do a little something to help a great cause! Your showcased cards are really great too! Love those little singing mice! :) Looking forward to making a "creature feature" card soon! :)

The real winner here of course was the charity, thanks to your generosity. Thanks for featuring my mice card, they're singing Jingle Belles at the top of their squeaks! Marie rocks, she made some stunning cards for this and deserves the goodies.
