Challenge #59 - CHRISTMAS (In Pink of course)...

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:

(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... 

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

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!


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...


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

Rizzo and The Pink Ladies
