It's P.P.P.P.P.P.Pink!

Me again, second post today, for my earllier post for Winter Wonderland DT either scroll down or click the link here.

So, what am I back with?  You might have guessed from the title that it could be a little bit pink, but you're wrong.  It's not a little bit pink .... it's a whole lotta pink!

The IN THE PINK challenge has launched with their first challenge of Fifty Shades of Pink.  I know a lot of you are reading the other Fifty Shades book, but that is not one that will be appearing on my Kindle anytime soon.  You may have noticed from my Book On The Go caption in my sidebar that I have been working my way through the Sharpe series of books by Bernard Cornwall.  I started them in February and am now on my 21st and the last.  I never thought I would ever get excited about the Napoleonic Wars but honestly, these have had me, hook, line and sinker.  And Toad will tell you, I have learned (and remembered) an awful lot about the artillery power of the time!!

Anyhoo, I am rambling, you came over to see a card, so here it is:

Who said dragons can't be pink?!!  Ingredients for this card are:
Stamped Image: Whimsy/Wee Stamps (Sylvia Zet) Autumn
Medium: Many shades of Distress Ink (ReInkers) pinks
Papers: Crafts Too
Extras: Martha Stewart doily lace border punch, Martha Stewart frond punch,
EK Success retro flower punch, Craftwork Cards Candi

Right, I have the ceiling fans on, two floor standing fans, the windows have been open since 7.30am, and it is still 30C in the "studio", but I shall be brave and venture forth once more - not wasting a crafty day!!

Hugs, Sxx

Aww bless, such a cute little pink dragon. Smashing card. Rainy and windy here but still really humid. Debs xx


Fabulous card Squirrel - the shades of pink are just what we need at INP! This Dragon is obviously in touch with his feminine side, and there's nothing wrong with that!! Great layout too!

Thank you for sharing with us at our first INP challenge - hope you will join us again next time!

Gorgeous card Squirrel. What a cute little dragon, love him and all the lovely pinkness.

You're lucky it's so warm. Not sure what the temperature was today but the rain this morning and part of the afternoon was torrential and persistent. But later on it turned really nice! And yesterday it was so nice. Fingers crossed for the weekend.

Hello there fellow Pink lover. Isn't it fabulous about the launch of In the Pink? I stopped in for a closer look at your card. I'm linked at #1 & #103 this week, I'd love it if you stopped by to say hello.

Totally awesome! Love this little guy, how cute is he/She (opps can't assume can I. LOL) Lovely colouring on the image and I like your layout.

Another fabulous card, I love all the pinks, AND the pink dragon as you say who says you can't have a pink dragon especially a cutie like this.

Your "lucky" with the weather, we have had 2 belting down days with rain and DARK days too. We look at the other side of the country and would love a taste of 30C.
