Challenge #55 - SPOTS AND/OR STRIPES

Hi Pinkies Everywhere...

We're here today with a gorgeous new challenge and a chance to get out your PINK again...  our theme is

SPOTS AND/OR STRIPES
(pink of course)

The Pink Ladies have had a lovely time making our creations with spots and stripes...  It's really an easy challenge... as it's surprising how many spots (and dotty people - ahem!) are around in Pink World!  We can't wait to see what you come up with!

The only thing we ask is for you to use

MORE PINK THAN ANY OTHER COLOUR ON YOUR CREATION

Here's what The Pink Ladies have come up with for you today:





(more details on the cards above are available by clicking on the name above each)

And now, we'd like to introduce you to our fabulous new Guest Designer for the next two challenges...  it's the lovely Pamellia from My Little Craft Things - and here is her wonderful creation:


Isn't this just a WOW?????

Here's a little bit about Pamellia who we know you'll give a lovely Pink welcome to:

Hello Everyone! My name is Pamellia Johnson and I live in Toronto, Ontario, Canada with my wonderful husband and our two little girls, Scully (a teacup Maltese) and Pebbles (a teacup black Pomeranian).

Thanks to my very creative and talented Mom, I have been crafting in some form or another since I was a little kid. I've dabbled in a variety of crafts, but my true passion is card making. I enjoy many different styles, but my favourite is shabby chic, oh how I love all the soft muted colours, big shabby bows and frilly laces.

Whenever possible, I try and make every aspect of my projects by hand. I prefer to make my own backgrounds and flowers, I dye my own ribbons, I even make some of my embellishments out of clay. I find such a sense of accomplishment in knowing that I made it myself.

Thank you so much to Christine and the In The Pink team for inviting me to spend the day with them. I am thrilled and honoured to be here with such a talented group of artists!

Pamellia has been one of our regular entrants and will also be with us for our next challenge.

We hope you'll  have fun with this challenge and ENJOY making something pink for us (that's what it's all about)...  We're looking forward to lots of fabulous entries!

You can also pop over to our FACEBOOK PAGE to share your pink creation there too so your fellow pinkies can see it properly and have a chat... we'd love to see you!


So come on ladies....  Lets get our dots and stripes out...

Happy Pink Crafting..

Challenge #52 - BUTTONS AND BOWS

Hi Pinkies

Today with have a brand new challenge AND some exciting news!

Firstly... the challenge...  This time the theme is 

BUTTONS AND BOWS

Now you don't have to use both.....  it can be an EITHER/OR - but we'd love it if you did try to use both... you know us for liking it ALL.... don't you??

DON'T FORGET OUR NUMBER ONE RULE IS THAT YOU USE MORE PINK THAN ANY OTHER COLOUR..

Here's what the lovely Pink Ladies have come up with for you this time...





And now........  our EXCITING NEWS!!  As we've recently lost two of our lovely Pink Ladies (so sad to lose them - but they've both had new job prospects - so it's totally understandable)  ... and so we have two fabulous new girls to welcome to The Pink Palace!  We're thrilled to bits that they've joined us - and have their pink satin jackets all ready!  You'll see a little bit about each new Pink Lady beneath their cards..

The first is...


Hi, I'm Rebecca and I live in Lancashire. I've been making cards for a few years now but my crafting journey has taken on a new lease of life since I started blogging and discovered so much inspiration within the online crafting community. I love using pretty pink papers and embellishments and am so excited to be joining the In the Pink team!


And now we have..


I am married and a mother to a beautiful and talented daughter. We live on the East Coast of the US in Pennsylvania, where my happy place is in my Studio. I have been working in the papercrafting industry for over 6 years teaching classes, working on design teams and even on occasion being published. I also enjoy reading, riding horses, going to the movies and hanging out with friends.

And haven't they started off their time with us well?  Such STUNNERS!  We know they'll be very at home here at the Pink Palace... and we look forward to seeing their future creations - hope you will too!

You can also pop over to our FACEBOOK PAGE to share your pink creation there too so your fellow pinkies can see it properly... we'd love to see you!
