Challenge #70 - Things with wings

Hi Lovely Pinkies....

It's Kat here again as our lovely boss Rizzo is currently off on her holibobs and enjoying some sunshine and maybe a few pink cocktails?!

We have lots of fun right here for you though in the form of our new challenge and the theme this time is...

(in pink of course...)

So, we want to see those fairies, birds, butterflies...aeroplanes?!
Don't forget our number one rule though, that you use MORE PINK THAN ANY OTHER COLOUR (with the exception of white of course..)

Here's what the lovely Pink Ladies came up with...we do seem to have a love of fairies here at the Pink Palace!

Christine (AKA Rizzo)





Viv - on a 'moving house' break, probably still unpacking boxes!

Here's a little bit about Anna...

"Such a beautiful surprise to have been asked as a guest designer at In the Pink!

A little about myself , I am Blankina (name in art of course).  I was born in the Netherlands but since 1996 I live in the beautiful Italy.

You could say I am a fulltime card crafter (read addict!), besides being a mum and wife.  
As a little kid I used to draw, and honestly I cannot remember anymore when I have bought my first stamps.  Now I have a large collection of stamps mainly "cute ones " which I love to colour up with my Copics.  Colouring images , matching  colours , papers , ribbons and dies to make a card is the best hobby there is!  So relaxing ...Each piece a unique personal gift to make someone happy.

In case you are interested please come and see more of my work on my blog to get to know me better."

Our wonderfully generous sponsor this time is The Ribbon Girl - do click on their logo below to take a peek into their world.... they supply such fabulous trimmings and embellishments... no crafter can resist their goodies!  And if you enter our challenge... you could win a £10 gift voucher to spend at their online store if your card is chosen as a Perfect Pinkie and then your name is drawn out of the hat!  (Please note, the voucher is obviously exclusive of shipping costs.)

Phew.... it's been a long post this time as we had so much news.... we're going to have to go have some PINK refreshments now.....  but if you'd like to pop by our Facebook page to say hello and share your makes.... we'd love to see them!

Big hugs to all and Happy Pink Crafting..
Rizzo and The Pink Ladies
