CHALLENGE #87 - WITH LOVE

Hi Lovely Pinkies...

We're here with another fabulous challenge for you - which we know you'll love... because that's what the theme is...

WITH LOVE
(in PINK of course)

You can interpret that any way you like.....  it could be for Valentines, or just sending love to a friend.....  it's your choice.  It would be nice to see a heart somewhere though..  Don't forget our number one rule, that you need to use MORE PINK THAN ANY OTHER COLOUR on your creation (with the exception of whites and neutrals of course).  If you don't follow this guideline, your entry may not be considered - and we hate to do that.  Our PINK challenge is just that - ALL ABOUT PINK!

Here's what the PINK LADIES came up with for your inspiration...






(Details of the cards above can be found by clicking on the name above each one)

Our very kind and generous sponsor this time is Little Miss Muffet Stamps - if your name is chosen at random from our Perfect Pinkies, you could win a $6 gift voucher to spend at their online store - and if you click on the logo below you can go straight there to see the range of wonderful stamps and digi images they have...
