Challenge #48 - Get Well/Thinking of You - Perfect Pinkies

Hi Pinkies

Another two weeks has gone by.... (they're going too fast!)... and we're back with our Perfect Pinkie choice for our Get Well/Thinking of You challenge.

Again... it appears to have proved a bit of a challenge (no pun intended! lol) - as we've had less entries.... but wowwwww to the wonderful entries we did have!

I know we always say this, but it really is difficult for us to choose from such fabulous entries, and we do consider each on it's merits.  We do like to see lots of different styles and interpretations of the theme too.  So here are the creations we came up with that we think deserved our Perfect Pinkie choice: 
(in no particular order)

Challenge #46 - FLOWER GARDEN

Hi Pinkies

Seeing as it's nearly Summer here at The Pink Palace..  we decided we should have some flowers around the place.........  so our challenge is called  'FLOWER GARDEN' - and we'd love to see what you can come up with using flowers.... either as embellishments - or as part of your image....  or both!  And it doesn't have to be a card...  as you know, we welcome any type of creation..

But don't forget the main requirement......  USE MORE PINK THAN ANY OTHER COLOUR

Here's what the lovely Pink Ladies have come up with to inspire you today:

And now we have some sad news........  and some happy news...    We're very sad that we're losing our lovely Christine C as a Pink Lady..  but we totally understand that at times, us crafters have lots to do, and something has to 'give'.  So we wish her exciting times with her gorgeous little grand-daughter.... and thank her for all the lovely creations she's done for In The Pink..   no doubt she'll be popping in with a pink card every now and again so we'll see her soon!!

And now, putting the tissues away, we are welcoming another lovely lady to The Pink Palace....  hope you'll all give a lovely Pink welcome to Stacey from Lasata's Crafty Hideout, who is joining us to take over from Christine..

Here's Stacey's card.....  I think you'll agree, she's going to be an asset here at The Pink Palace!


Here's a little bit about Stacey:

I'm Stacey, 35 from Barnsley, South Yorkshire. I have been crafting for about 3 years now and blogging for just over a year. I started off using decoupage sheets and then moved onto stamping about 2 years ago. I discovered digital stamping about 18 months ago and that is my main crafting now. And of course my favourite colour is PINK!!! 

Hope you've been inspired to join in our FLOWER GARDEN challenge...  we look forward to seeing what you create!

Big hugs
Rizzo and The Pink Ladies
