At the risk of being .... boring.....

Hi Blogging Friends

Well, as the title says.......  at the risk of being boring, I have another pink card for you!!  Only this one is nothing to do with In The Pink..  I've made it for a very good friend of ours who has never made a card in her life....  but loves anything pink, girly and glittery......  So as she's recently moved into a bungalow, I thought this may suit her well.  And it had to be a very simple card, as I had to get it in the post quickly!!   Soooooo  boring it is I'm afraid..  LOL!


The image is a freebie that came with a magazine about 18 months ago I think....  it's a Pink Petticoat design - the free set that it came in are very handy to use... I love them all.. and have used quite a few of them.  My pink pens (which are never put away now...) just had to be used for the roof... with some warm greys for the little house itself.  I used my prismacolour pencils for the grass... somehow they always do the grass better than the pens...  I used a white gel pen for the dots around, and of course, then got out my glue pen and glamour dust (well i just had to.....)...  then a little sentiment generated on the PC and cut with a Stamping Up punch....  all put onto some fabulous digi paper that I'd downloaded yesterday from Sassy Designs - this one is called Ballet....  and it was done and ready to post.  So there you go!!

We've been absolutely amazed at the number of followers and entrants into the challenge at In The Pink....  it's certainly been keeping Sylvia and I busy - so not many other cards have been made lately..  But I did spend a morning with Sylvia who hosted her first Stamping Up workshop with some lovely ladies on Saturday..  her ideas are fab and we did a couple of lovely make'n'takes.....  and no, I'm not going to own up how much I spent..........  Shhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh....

Big Hugs and Happy Crafting

  21. Hi Christine, Gorgeous card! I love this cute image ... what a FAB freebie!

    Thanks for your comment on my holiday photographs. Warwick Castle is great and kept us entertained for the whole day and there was still loads we didn't get to see and do. So yes I would say it is worth the admission price.
