In the ♥PINK♥!

Holy moly, you guys surely did ♥ROCK♥ the Pink Christmas this year! We were thrilled to see 63 links in the gallery and a total of 90 totally amazing cards submitted. When you multiply that by $4 that means we raised a total of $360 for The Breast Cancer Research Foundation, who have a donor that is matching gifts during October up to $50,000... which means we've basically doubled that amount!  WOOHOO and a big giant ♥THANK YOU♥ to everyone who made cards, cheered each other on, and spread the word!!!

Of course there isn't a single card in that gorgeous gallery that doesn't deserve a huuuuuuuuge shout-out, so we heartily recommend that you go see them all! Meanwhile here are a few that especially tickled us pink:

...managed to work the iconic pink ribbon into her gloriously funky mixed media design, plus it's got loads of SPARKLE! 
('Cause sparkle is GOOOOOOD!!!)

...built a CAS retro pink masterpiece that's all ONE LAYER!!!
(Which boggles our minds in the best possible way!)

...mixed hot pink with bright turquoise and crisp white in her super-layery confection that's got "eye candy" written all over it!
(Ok, technically it says, "Jolly" but you know what we mean, lol!)

Many many thanks to everyone who played and extra love to those who linked multiple cards, posted on Facebook or Instagram, or gave us a super-special shout out! We appreciate every single bit of your goodness, which is exceeded only by your card-making talent! We'll be back at midnight with a brand-new prompt that isn't nearly as sketchy as it seems...
