Hi Best Blogging Buddies.....
Well today is the DAY!!!! It's time for the announcement that you've all been waiting for......... (well you have.... haven't you????) Drum Roll please.................
|Click Here to go straight to IN THE PINK|
I am thrilled to announce that on August 9 (two weeks today), there will be a new Challenge Blog launched..... and it happens to be for cards or other creations using my very, very favourite colour........ now you all know what this is???? PINK of course!! The new blog is called IN THE PINK - and it will be a wonderful way for all lovers of this luscious colour to share their creations and their love - and come on, we girlies all love a bit of pink...... don't we?
I came up with the idea a little while back and have been beavering away behind the scenes trying to get the artwork together - I'm lacking a few brain cells now... As I knew I couldn't host this challenge on my own, I asked a very like minded lady to be my co-hostess.... and with a little gentle persuasion on my part, she made my year and accepted!!!! So my partner for this fab new adventure is the lovely and uber talented Sylvia, from Poppy's Papercraft Patch - someone whose cards I have loved and admired since I first started blogging.
Now...... how to get involved???? If you pop over to IN THE PINK (here)....... we'd love you to firstly become a follower (so you'll know when it's all systems go.....), and then grab our banner which is in the first post (or here above)- and then, pleeeeassssee (as a big favour to us) show the banner in a post on your blog - which will help us spread the PINK word! Please link the banner caption to the In the Pink blog.. so people can find their way to us........ we will have a special welcome for them! There is also a button for your sidebar..... if you could also link this back to the In The Pink blog, that'd be wonderful and we'll love you forever!
Pretty Patricia (AKA Sylvia) and me (Posh Priscilla (!!)) are very much looking forward to welcoming you in this new venture....... we will have three winners per fortnightly challenge - each winning a PERFECT PINKIE badge, and we hope to have Guest Designers chosen from the winners each month, but our main aim is to spread the PINK word!!
Now... very quickly...... onto my card!! Today I've used a rubber stamp called Stella's Cupcake from Stamping Bella (hmmm it just happened to drop through my door this morning.... my goodness, I wonder how?? She is a dream to colour....... as is the yummy cupcake she is grasping onto! I used Wild Rose Studio Butterfly Garden papers (free with a mag recently), some bazzill, and a scalloped square nestie for the image surround. I also doodled freehand the fine black line frame around the image... scarey or what??? I also used some glossy accents for her wonderful lips, and for her cherry and crown.
Colours used (pink of course), are RV17, R85, and RV000 - then for her hair I used E50, E51 and E43.
Can't wait to see your name as a follower of our new blog....... and thank you all for helping us promote this wonderful challenge!
Pink hugs to all
