Hi Lovely Pinkies...

Hope you're all well and enjoying your PINK colouring now we're well into 2015!  Here in the UK we have snow!

It's time for a wonderful new challenge here at In The Pink - this time our theme is:


We'd love to see what you come up with for this challenge..  it's one we've done before but that is always popular with our followers.  We'd like to see LOTS OF PINK of course - and something pearlie.... get the picture??  

Don't forget our main requirement is that you use MORE PINK THAN ANY OTHER COLOUR on your creation (with the exception of white of course).

Here's what the lovely Pink Ladies have come up with to inspire...

Now.... we have news!  Unfortunately our lovely Cibele has had to step down from The Pink Ladies - we'll miss you lots Cibele and thank you so much for what you did for us.  However, it left us with a pink satin jacket available...  so, rather than just coming up with one new Pink Lady - we chose TWO!! (We'll have to share the jackets!)  So let us introduce Debs and Viv and their cards below...


Here's a bit about Debs: 

Hi, I’m Debbie, Mum to 3 boys Jamie, Aaron  & Jack and Grandma to Oliver, Lola and Ruby.

I never considered myself to be very artistic and then I discovered scrapbooking about 7-8 years ago when I stopped smoking and wanted something to do in the evenings.  I saw a craft programme on TV, ordered the kit, bought a few more things, stored them in 3 stacking boxes, crafted at the kitchen table, bought more stash, discovered stamping and card making (quicker end result than scrapbooking) moved into the dining room, acquired a set of craft drawers, bought even more stash and now have my own little crafty haven full to bursting but very loved and visited practically every day.

I have had my blog nearly 6 years now and I am lucky enough to be on some wonderful Design Teams.  I have also recently been lucky enough to start designing for Papercraft Inspirations – a crafter’s dream come true.  I am truly blessed to have made a number of wonderful friends through crafting and blogging and hope it continues

And now

And a bit about Viv:

Hi friends of In The Pink.
I'm a mum to 4 amazing boys (men) and grandmother to 6 grandsons (eldest is 23 and youngest will be here in 6 weeks) and two grand daughters.  I'm way too young really! LOL!

I've been an avid card-maker for more years than I care to remember.  My preferred medium is Copic markers, although I do like to use distress inks now and again.  I'm delighted to be part of Rizzo's fabulous team and look forward to seeing all your fabulous creations.

I think we're going to enjoy having these two very talented ladies on our team don't you think?  FABULOUS debut cards ladies!

And our last bit of EXCITING news...  This time we have a wonderful sponsor!! 
If you creation is lucky enough to be chosen as one of our Perfect Pinkies - your name will be put into a hat with the other PP's and one will be drawn to receive this fabulous prize generously donated by The Ribbon Girl..  Exciting or WHAT!  The Ribbon Girl sell some WONDERFUL products...  so many lush ribbons and trimmings to add to our PINK creations!

And we'll also be choosing a new Guest Designer too from our Pink and Pearlie Entries...  so with all these wonderful things going on....  go get out your PINK pens and PINK papers and get creating!!

Don't forget you can share your creations on our Facebook page too...

Big hugs
Rizzo and The Pink Ladies
