Hi Pinkies

Are you all getting nearly ready for Christmas??  It's getting so close and here at the Pink Palace, we have all the pink decorations up... there is lots of bling and glitter - in fact the Palace can barely be seen for all the fabulous sparkly stuff!  And we have a mahoosive PINK Christmas tree!!

So with all that in mind, today's challenge is:

CHRISTMAS
(pink of course...)

So that's got to be easy for you, hasn't it??  Hope so!  Don't forget to use MORE PINK THAN ANY OTHER COLOUR - our number one rule!

Here's what the Design Team have come up with to inspire you...

Now, onto some fabulous exciting news!!  We have a lovely new Pink Lady who has joined us... if you are here often, you'll see this lady's creations quite regularly amongst our entries so she is very definitely a pink lover! Let me introduce to you Vannessa Hasty from Saffire's Stamping - here's her fabulous card - you'll love it!

Vannessa

I know you'll give Vannessa a huge Pink welcome - here's a bit about her..

I'm Vannessa, will be hitting the big 4-0 next year and am a primary school teacher by day, currently teaching a lively class of 7-8 year olds. I live in Peterborough in the UK with my boyfriend of 18 years and our very spoilt kitty, Tallulah. We don't have any children - 30 a day at work is enough for me!  I have been card making for about 8 years now and it started as something to do to fill the long summer holidays with. I began with a cheap set from eBay and it grew from there. I now have a huge amount of crafting goodies, but there's always room for more I say! I love layers on my cards and very rarely do you find one without some ribbon. I think I have enough ribbon to start my own shop - just love it.  In the Pink is just the perfect challenge blog for me. I love pink! I wear lots of pink, my bedroom is pink, my classroom has lots of pink bits all over it too! I am so excited to be one of the Pink Ladies! Thank you to Christine for asking me to join the team!  


And now........  even more wonderful excitement!  Our Guest Designer for this month is the lovely Kate from Downright Crafty - and here's her card...

Kate

How fabulous is this??  And here's a bit about Kate too..

Hi my name is Kate, 

I have been crafting all of my life in one way or another and was introduced to the land of blog by a very good crafting friend.  A little timid at first it did not take me long to find my feet and to start entering all the fabulous challenges.  I found copics three years ago and have never looked back, a year ago,  I attended my Copic Certification Class to become a Copic Certified Designer.  I have been published several times in the Mad 4 Markers Copicendium and occasionally published for Papercraft Essentials promoting Wild Rose Studio images.

Sooo... let's see what you can do for our Christmas challenge...  but again, don't forget, use MORE PINK than any other colour (with the exception always of white!)  HAVE FUN.. we did!

You have a whole four weeks to enter this challenge as we're taking a little break over the festive period..  we'll be putting our feet up on our pink pouffe's...  sitting around enjoying some Pink Champagne to celebrate.. and generally enjoying ourselves!



Now all this is left is for us to wish ALL of our lovely Pinky followers a WONDERFUL CHRISTMAS and wish you all the very best for a fabulous 2015!

Big Hugs

Challenge # 58 - Diecuts and Punches...

Hi Pinkies

Hope you're all having a good time getting ready for the festivities next month..  everyone seems to be in advance of themselves this year somehow, with all the TV ads you'd think Christmas was next week instead of next month! LOL!

But here at the Pink Palace, we're only going to put up our decorations in December..  when we're going to have a massive Pink Christmas tree, and lots and lots of pink glitter and tinsel!  

Now onto today's challenge....  this time we'd like to see what you can make using 

DIECUTS AND PUNCHES
(using lots of pink of course...)

So that's got to be easy for you, hasn't it??  Hope so!  Don't forget to use MORE PINK THAN ANY OTHER COLOUR - our number one rule!

Here's what the Design Team have come up with to inspire you...

Now, a little sad news....  due to difficult circumstances, our lovely Gayle has had to step down and hang up her pink satin jacket - at least for a while.  We all send our love to Gayle and her family - and hope things improve soon - and the Pink Palace door will always be open for you!  Thank you for all that you've done as one of the lovely PINK ladies!

Now... onto our lovely Guest Designer - Viv from Daizy-Mae Designs..  Here is her gorgeous Diecuts and Punches creation..



Definitely a WOW card in our eyes!!  Don't you just LOVE all that pink showing???  A big thank you to Viv for joining us for a short while... and giving us a fabulously different perspective and a wonderful style to inspire!

Sooo... let's see what you can do for our Diecuts and Punches challenge...  but again, don't forget, use MORE PINK than any other colour (with the exception always of white!)  HAVE FUN.. we did!

Challenge #57 - KISS (Keep It Sweet and Simple)

Hi Lovely Pinkies

We're here today with a nice easy challenge for you...  in fact very easy (which are sometimes the most difficult)!!  The theme is:

KEEP IT SWEET AND SIMPLE 
(KISS for short!)

We'd love to see you create something, as it says, sweet and simple... we'll leave it to your imagination what that means... everyone interprets differently.  We've come up with some examples of what we each think..  now let's see what you can do!  

Don't forget of course, THAT WE NEED TO SEE MORE PINK THAN ANY OTHER COLOUR on your creation.






(details of these cards can by found by clicking on the name above each)

And now we have another new Guest Designer - who specialises in this type of card... meet the lovely Viv from Daizy-Mae Designs..  Here is her gorgeous KISS creation..


Isn't this just stunning in it's simplicity??

I know you'll all give Viv a wonderful PINK welcome.. Here's a little bit about her...

Hi everyone, my name is Vivien Hodge and I live in Norfolk, UK.  I have been making cards and also wire jewellery for over 10 years now. Happy married, we have three children and three grandchildren too. My husband is also into crafts and makes lovely things out of wood, turning mostly but some carving also.
 
I like to make quite simple cards mostly, using digital images, rubber stamps, die-cuts etc.  I love my Happy Cuts machine, my Cuttlebug, Copic Markers, Promarkers & Flex Markers too. I love using distress inks and the lovely effects they can achieve.
  
I look forward to joining ‘In The Pink’ as a Guest Designer, such a great inspirational site. Rizzo knows I am well known for my love of pink too lol. What an honour to be chosen, thank you so much.

Sooo... let's see what you can do for our KISS challenge...  but again, don't forget, MORE PINK than any other colour (with the exception always of white!)  HAVE FUN.. we did!
