Hi Blogging Buddies
Well I'm here again with my In The Pink hat on... and a comfy hat it's getting to be!! This time around we went for Buttons and Bows... and I've got to say, this has been one of my favourite challenges so far!
For my first card, I used a lovely stamp from the MFT Pure Innocence range - this one is called Bunch of Blooms... and the sentiment I used came with the set. She's such a little darling to colour... you will be seeing more of this little lady, as there have been quite of few of these stamps creeping into my stash!!
Then her bow.... well, that's a new die called Small Bow from Li'l Inker Designs - who are an American company - but their shipping rates and service are very good. The bow comes in three parts but is very easy to assemble. Her buttons and thread are from my ever increasing stash!
Now onto my second card... this one is using one of my favourite LOTV images (Milly Just for You).
And this time I've tried a criss-cross card... I've been itching to have a go at one of these, and so now seemed like the right time! I checked out a couple of quick tutorials on YouTube and off I went... and I really love the outcome! The papers are from the Echo Park Be Mine collection.... along with some Bazzill, then I embossed the pull out bit with a Crafts Too Hearts embossing folder.
A lush bow finished off the card... and a few buttons and ribbon to show where to 'pull' - although my lovely OH did say that I should write the word PULL at the top!!! The sentiment is from Paper Smooches btw - again a company from the US.... but good on shipping rates and quick postage.
Hope you like my designs for In The Pink this time... why don't you play along with us and join in the Pink fun??? If you need more inspiration, go to In The Pink HERE and check out Sylvia's beautiful creation, and one from our new Guest Designer - Denise. Also if you entered our Pink Plus One..... pop over HERE to see if you were chosen as a Perfect Pinkie! We had over 100 entrants last time (thank you soooo much!)..... can we beat that this time do you think?
Just to make you smile... I'm struggling with my back at the moment... have trapped a nerve which is causing some pain (obviously from carrying my new stash from the Harrogate show to the car).... and my physio asked me this morning to try not to sit down for the next two or three days!! Hmmmmm..... not sure I'll manage that..... but, if I'm missing some commenting..... hope you can forgive me!
Big hugs to all
