Challenge #36 - Diecuts and Punches (in pink of course...)

Hi Pinkies

Hope you're all well in Pinkie World....!

Today's challenge is DIECUTS AND PUNCHES - not an inspiring title... but it says it like it is..... we would like to see your creations using Diecuts AND/OR Punches... whichever you prefer.. or both!
Couldn't be easier huh??

And exciting news..... we have a fabulous sponsor for this challenge... ALL DRESSED UP have kindly agreed to offer our ultimate winner (chosen from the Perfect Pinkies) two digi images of their choice......  and when you see these images by Wendy Burns.... we promise you.... you really will be SPOILED trying to decide.... they are all so fabulously girlie!!  Check our their Etsy shop (click HERE to see the gorgeous images ... and there are fabulous digi papers too)...   we promise you that you won't be able to come away empty handed...!

Here's what the DT have come up with this time -  a few of us have used Wendy's adorable images to show you how gorgeous they are!

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

Now.... if you can stand MORE excitement....  we chose a Guest Designer from our entries last time..  and we'd like to introduce the lovely KATE who will be with us for our next two challenges...  her cards are so stunning we're sure you'll give her a big welcome to The Pink Palace...

Here is Kate's fabulous card - and a little bit about her 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 was recently published in Papercraft Essentials promoting Wild Rose Studio images. I am a member of several Design Teams in the land of blog and Facebook Wild Rose StudioHouse Mouse and Friends and Winter Wonderland (DT co ordinator) and 6 months ago was thrilled to be asked to be the Social Media and DT co ordinator for the Hobby House and to be on their Design Team. Super thrilled to be asked to be an In the Pink Guest Designer, thank you Pink ladies.'

We can't wait to see what you come up with using DIECUTS AND PUNCHES... and don't forget the main requirement is that you use MORE PINK THAN ANY OTHER COLOUR...

Big Hugs

Hi Pinkies

Well...... what a way to start the new year with such a lot of gorgeous pinkness..  we had such a difficult job this time...... SOOOO many lovely entries (thank you ALL)...  but we Pink Ladies weren't fazed.... We put on the gorgeous pink lights here in the Pink Palace, pulled up our fluffy pink chairs, wore our sparkly pink slippers, enjoyed some lovely pink marshmallows, and then delved in and did our job.... and here are the cards (in no particular order) that we thought deserved Perfect Pinkie status:

Love the image and layout on this one

(for more details on any of these cards, click on the name above each..)

We could have chosen loads as the standard of your entries is really high.....  but had to narrow it down, and down....  to get our final six.  Please take your badge ladies...  and wear it on your sidebar..

There'll be a brand new challenge on the blog today.... in a few minutes actually...  so we look forward to welcoming you again soon as there are a couple of bits of exciting news too!
