Well I can't quite believe how fast this year has gone.... here we are on Nov 1st... and yet another two weeks have gone by so it was time to get my pink head on again (like as if it's ever far away.... hehe).. and get a couple more cards done for In The Pink!!
Now onto my second card....... well, you need to make up your own mind on this one... I'm not at all sure that I like it (that's putting it mildly)... it seemed a good idea at the time.... BUT.... I have to say it did fit the simple bit.. So easy to use a Crafts Too jacquard embossing folder (I used a small one and put it through the cuttlebug from either end matching the pattern..) Btw, I got this folder reduced at Harrogate - twas only £2! I used some pretty organza ribbon from my stash for the bow, distressed the edges of the card then added some stickles... and finally a LOTV little sentiment tag edged with a deeper pink and some stickles too. No one can say that there isn't enough pink space on this one.... can they??? LOL!!
We'd love to see more joining in the challenges at In The Pink.... don't know if the 'Buttons and Bows' put people off, but waaaaaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhh we only had 36 entries... (Big thank-yous to those lovely ladies). For the previous challenge we had well over a hundred - and that's what we like to see....... Pinkies taking over the world!!! My lovely OH saw what I was typing here and said I should put 'a plague of pinkies...' hmmmm, not sure that sounds nice.... but we could have a 'plethera of pinkness....' yes????????? Any other suggestions of descriptive words for pinkies??
Sooooooooo don't forget this challenge is CLEAN AND SIMPLE.... pop over to the challenge blog HERE for more details... but mainly we want to see lots of pink space!!
Happy Crafting and Big hugs
