Challenge #10 - Pink and Pearlie!

Hi Pinkies

Here at Pinkie Palace we have a fabulous new challenge for you today... this time our theme is 'Pink and Pearlie' - and we'd love to see - like the title says - entries using lots of pinks and pearls!!  Don't forget, your entry doesn't have to be a card... it can be anything.

Here's what we've come up with if you need any inspiration:

And now we'd thrilled to introduce our fabulous new Guest Designer for the next two challenges.. it's Nic... perhaps better known as Coops from Coops' Cluttered Corner - who we're delighted to say has agreed to join us as GDT.  We're sure you'll agree, her work is absolutely stunning so we're really lucky to have her on board!

"Hi, I am Nic or better known in blogland as Coops.  I am a married mum of 1 and I have been crafting about 7 years now. I first started card making when I had been made redundant from my then job and needed something to occupy my mind. I was soon hooked and I still love it as much now as i did then. I love to craft at night mainly as it helps me to wind down and I love to sit and colour an image to life. I find the  whole process of putting a card together really relaxing.

I would like to thank Christine and Sylvia for asking me to join them for a couple of challenges, it is a real honour."

So Pinkies... let's see you get our your pink pens and card... and your pearls... we're looking forward to lots of gorgeous entries.  This challenge is open for four weeks until 9 January... so we can have a little rest over Christmas..  

And talking of Christmas.... Sylvia and I would like to wish all our followers and entrants a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.... and to THANK YOU ALL for taking part and showing your support for our new challenge blog...  we've really enjoyed creating a special place for lovers of the colour pink!!

Big Hugs
Christine and Sylvia xx

Don't forget to use lots of pink and pearls on your entry..

Challenge #9 - Gonna be a Pink Christmas - PERFECT PINKIES

Hi Pinkies

Once again it was such a difficult job to choose our Perfect Pinkies for our Pink Christmas challenge... we sat down, scratched our heads, emailed each other, had the odd glass of wine (each!), had a long, long list of those we liked...  had another glass of wine (each!), then finally narrowed it down to our four favourites which are below...  We hope you'll agree, these are stunning cards and each worthy of a Perfect Pinkie badge!

Here is your badge girls, please grab it and display on your sidebar..

Thank you all for your fabulous entries... it gets more difficult each time we have to choose... as we think all our entrants are winners!

We have a lovely new challenge for you this morning, so don't forget to check it out HERE.

Sylvia and I are going to be busy for the next couple of days decorating the Pinkie Palace of course for Christmas... and guess what colour are decorations are going to be?? hehe!

Big hugs to our fab Pinkies..
Christine and Sylvia xx
