40 days - the pink one!


Do you like pink? I know that the Guv does and so do I. My challenge to you today is to create something predominantly pink. A card, a layout, a mini book or a piece of altered art, whatever you fancy. If you email your creation to the Guv, she's is going to select one lucky winner to receive all this scrummy pink stash. Don't forget to put a comment on here so we can all go and have a look at your work.



I created my first card using papers from the March 07 personal shopper kit and a chipboard birthday cake from the chipboard bumper pack. To embellish it I used a piece of American Crafts ribbon. For the greeting I used a Tim Holtz Adage Ticket, I added the words "make a" with rub ons and attached it with a cool paperclip which came in the ps kit.




For my second card I used some of the fab Core'dinations cardstock which I embossed and then distressed with an emery board. I got out my craft knife and cut one of the cute feathered birds in half and stuck him to the front of the card (I know it seems cruel but I couldn't fix the whole bird on there and now I have another one to use for something else!) I stamped the greeting onto some more paper from my ps kit and raised it up on foam pads. To finish off I embellished the bottom of the card with some American Crafts ribbon and a cute little arrow brad from the ps kit.

Just to let you know, you need to email your entry by midnight BST on Sunday 19th July 2008.

I have three beautiful granddaughter's so finding something pink in my stash was easy-peasy! Your cards are too cute. Love the way you cut the bird to make him work for you. And, the birthday cake card is just adorable! Love the paper clip, too .... brilliant work!
