CHALLENGE #97 - LACE

Hello Lovely Pinkies...

We have a fabulous new challenge theme today - hopefully you'll find this one easier than our last one!!!

The theme this time is 

LACE
(creations to be in PINK of course)

Now, the lace doesn't have to be PINK obviously - but obviously we'd love to see what you can come up with using some lace - or even a lacey die-cut.  Don't forget though that you need to USE MORE PINK THAN ANY OTHER COLOUR on your creation, otherwise your entry may not be considered.

Here's what the lovely Pink Ladies have come up with to give you some inspiration...





(Debs is on a break this time)

We hope you'll make Lucy very welcome - we're certainly thrilled that she's joining us, as her creations are wonderful - particularly her PINK ones!

CHALLENGE #95 1 - 2 - 3

Hi Lovely Pinkies...

Our new challenge theme today is....

1 - 2 - 3
(in pink of course!)

To explain.... that means we'd like you to use

1 of something
2 of another thing
and 
3 of something else....  
(See?  it's simpler than it sounds - but don't forget to let us know what you've used!)

Get the idea??  Don't forget our number one rule though is that you use MORE PINK THAN ANY OTHER COLOUR (with the exception of whites and neutrals of course)  If you don't follow this rule, your entry may not be considered - as our PINK challenge is all about our favourite colour - PINK!!

Here's some inspiration from the lovely Pink Ladies to help...





(Our lovely Kat is on a break this time)

And if you're randomly chosen from our Perfect Pinkies - you could win a fabulous $10 voucher (exc of shipping) from our lovely and generous sponsor - Paper Nest Dolls - take a look at their website by clicking on the logo below - there are wonderful digi images and also fabulous stamps too!

And now we have a bit of sad news..... our lovely Pink Lady Vannessa has decided to step down from our Design Team - we're devastated to lose her, but would like to thank her for her time at The Pink Palace - and wish her all the very best in her future crafting adventures!!

So let's see what you can come up with for our 1- 2  - 3 theme..  in PINK!!  Don't forget we love to see all sorts of creations and projects, not just cards...
