It's All About the Pink



Happy Friday everyone.  I have several cards to post that I have made over the last few days.  I am focusing now on cards for the Splitcoast Stampers Hope You Can Cling To card drive--you can see the challenges here.  I will need to post my cards over at SCS, but for now I am showing them on my blog.  I am also linking my cards up at Link Up for Pink.


My first card is for this week's CAS(E) this Sketch CTS #48.  I used die cut Avery Elle macrons stamped in three shades of pink--coated with glossy accents and Ranger White Enamel Accents--for my card and some images from Amuse Fight Like a Girl.  The texture on my card is from my newest PTI Impression Plate--Stitching.  The colors look terrible in this photo--they are Memento Angel Pink, Hibiscus Burst, and Raspberry Fizz.








I am entering my next two cards into the Anything Goes challenge at Paper Smooches Sparks and the We're Going Dotty challenge at SimonSaysStamps Wednesday.

I am also entering this 'hope' card into this week's Fusion Challenge #19, where I was inspired by the photo of all the pink packages tied up with bows.




And, this 'hope' card is also for the Inner Strength Challenge on SCS ("a dimensional image on the inside of your card can be seen through an opening in the front of your card")








My last card for today is for the Hope You Have a Great Day challenge at SCS (make a card that will put a smile on someone's face), part of the Hope You Can Cling To card drive.  The sentiment is from an MFT set that Kim and I split when we made a qualifiying order together--she got this stamp, and I just stamped a few images for myself.  The patterned papers are from Pebbles Sunny Side.  I am also linking to the We're Going Dotty challenge at SimonSaysStamps Wednesday.



Well, I am feeling lazy all of a sudden, so I won't write up all the supplies.  Let me know if you have any questions.

Oh, and please make sure to get your mammogram.  Mine is scheduled in a month.  Not too fun, but it sure beats the alternative.  One of my sister-in-laws is fighting her second recurrence of breast cancer.  She is facing very good odds, because they caught it early both times.  I think that is why I seem to have pink on the brain this month.

Edited to add:  I just found a new challenge to enter--Cut it Up #29--Think Pink and include a die cut.  I am entering all of these cards over there.




Thanks for Visiting
