I'm Dreaming of a Pink Christmas

 It's that time of year that the Jingle Belles Rock Pink Christmas for Breast Cancer Awareness, both Lauren and Stephanie donate $2.00 each for every pink Christmas card posted on their Challenge Blog.

Here is my first card for the challenge (there will be more)

Now I cannot remember who is the maker of this digi, it was printed and in my stash of images, must remember to pencil te name on the back of them when I print, I used Spellbinders Labels 2 to diecut the image and te layer, The patterned paper is from a paper pad I found at Walmart 19 years ago,  Merry Christmas is from Impession Obsession. Although you can't really see it, I did machine stitch the patterned paper to the pink layer.

A couple of years ago I bought a little sewing machine at a yard sale, I don't even remember if I tried it before, but it came with many colours of thread all wound on spools to use.  I'm sure I really need to get it out and practice more as the first run was not too steady.  Here is a picture of the machine.

It sure is a noisy little thing but I will manage to sew a straight line with practice.
