Challenge #26 - BIRTHDAY - It's OURS!!!

Hi Pinkies

There's lots of excitement in the air here at the Pink Palace....  we're celebrating!!!  It's our VERY FIRST BIRTHDAY ..... yep, that's right, we've had this fabulous place to celebrate all things pink for a full year!!! And it's a double celebration....  as with my arm twisted up my back by one of the DT... I have to own up that it's a VERY BIG BIRTHDAY for me too on Friday...  and I'm feeling OLD!
ruffle pink wedding cake Its Polka Dot Brides 5th Birthday!
Happy Birthday to us..... Happy Birthday to us... (come on, join in!)

And so, as we don't like to be quiet about the happenings at the PINK PALACE, we decided that our theme this time should be... wait for it...... BIRTHDAYS!

To help us celebrate....  we've had two very kind sponsors join us this time...  so we're going to vote at the end of the challenge, and two of the Perfect Pinkies chosen will win either:

2 Individual Digi images of the winner's choice
(No sets, personalised watermarks or sentiment sets) 


The Hobby House
(any shipping/taxes etc to be paid by the winner)

AND as if that wasn't enough......  there is also HIDDEN CANDY along the way...  so make sure you comment on each of the DT's cards..... you never know...  you may be chosen to win some gorgeous CANDY!!

Here's what we've come up with for the theme:

And lastly.... but most definitely not least..... the eagle eyed amongst you may have noticed above that we have a new member of the Design Team to announce...  it's the lovely Kat W....  she a passion for pink so will be very much at home here at the Pink Palace..  here's a little bit about her:

Hi, I'm Kat.  I have been making cards for around 7 years and my style of cardmaking is not quite CAS but I don't tend to use a lot of embellishments.  I mostly use stamps as my focal point, coloured with my beloved Copics, and my favourite stamps to use are Saturated Canary, LOTV and Tiddly Inks.  I love to stitch on my cards (all by hand!) and of course, I LOVE pink, so I am delighted to have a chance to show you my pink creations :-)

Why don't you pop over to her blog and say hello??

Right ho...... are you all excited like we are and ready to rock and roll with your pink pens and papers??  It's such an easy challenge, we'd like to see loads and loads of entries..  but don't forget our number one rule.... to use MORE PINK THAN ANY OTHER COLOUR (with the exception of white of course).... it really is such a shame when we have a fabulous entry that we can't take into account because of the lack of pink!

Happy Crafting!
Big big hugs
