In The Pink again... (when isn't it pink time for me?? LOL!)

Hi Girls

I'm here again today with another pink card.... (yep.... you're surprised, aren't you??)...  This time it's for In The Pink... where are challenge this time is 

Now I got asked a couple of times by the DT whether this included using embossing powders.... the answer was a big yes...  we'd love to see any type of embossing...  using embossing folders, stencils.... or heat embossing... and with our DT being addicted at the moment to Frantage..  this was a perfect reason to use it! (I did hear a tale of one of our ladies nearly getting frantaged to her desk......  shhhhhhhh... no names)

I decided to use both types of embossing......  as you can see...  this little fairy's wings were Frantaged within an inch of their life! LOL

(I tried to show the white dots surrounding the image... but no success really)

Card Recipe:
Image:  A Day for Daisies - Fairy Wish (freebie a couple of months ago)
Cuttlebug Embossing Folder
Marianne Creatables Edge Die
Nitwits/LOTV Always and Forever Paper
Button, Twine and glitter from Stash
Sentiment - Pebbles Rub On
Shabby Pink Frantage

I'm quite happy with the CAS (apart from the Frantage) way this turned out...  and it was nice to do an 'un-Christmas' card for a change! 

I've had a busy week up to now...  I have started doing some voluntary work for our local children's' hospice - Martin House in Boston Spa..  I'm hoping to help grow their lottery numbers...  £1000 prize every week and only 2500 people in the draw at the moment (such good odds!)...  £1 entry per week payable by Standing Order or 6 monthly cheque.... and it raises money for such a worthy cause..   so..... if any of you would like me to send you an entry form... just holler!  (OK that's the cheeky bit over with..) 

I also met up yesterday with my lovely friend Christine (Nanaseaside) - and finally got to meet her oh-so-cute little grand-daughter Mia... ooh and of course, Mia's mum - Alison.  Lovely to say hello again and to see Mia..

Don't forget to pop over to In The Pink and join in our challenge...  The Pink Ladies and I would be delighted to see you there!

Big hugs and Happy Crafting

  17. Hi Christine, thanks for your comment regarding my "Embossing" entry for "In the Pink." Yes, I did stamp the image, the applied clear embossing powder, then used my heating tool. I revised my post and am entering the pink on in your challenge. Appreciate your comment. Karen
