I’m Dreaming of a Pink Christmas

Stampin up holiday mini simple seasonal thanks

As unconventional as pink may be for the winter holidays, Pink Passion (used in each of my  three cards today) is the perfect emblem for  Breast Cancer Awareness Month.  This post continues my "In the Pink" tribute to my sister-in-law, Karol Harris (now battling breast cancer), my sister, Laurie Balousek (a breast cancer survivor) and all those affected by this horrible disease.
