In The PINK & Happy Birthday

Lovely sunny morning here at Filey on the north east coast  UK..hope your catching a few of these sun rays too..?
I went for a girlie day out to York yesterday with dear daughter Alison..she’s getting married nxt year & she wanted
to try on some wedding dresses she’s on holiday this wk so time is precious as she works full time as an
Orthodontic dental nurse..we had a meal at Jamie Olivers restaurant very nice it was too..
It was a hot day (for me anyway) & I did the driving so feel a little fragile this morning..was going to clean
windows but they will have to wait another day..me thinks a day in me craft room should see me right ..lol

Todays the day of the start of a NEW chall blog IN THE PINK it’s the brain wave of a good friend
CHRISTINE & her chall blog partner & helper Sylvia ..it just so happens to be Christine’s BIRTHDAY
TODAY HAPPY BIRTHDAY  sweetie hope Barry spoils you rotten XXXXXXXX..
The card I’m entering into the 1st chall of IN THE PINK is actually Christine’s B/day card..
I do hope she received it? as we know this girlie does like her PINK, SPARKLE & FAIRY’S
& boy does this lil Tilda sparkle..lol  Fairy Tilda image coloured with markers & prismas & of course lots of
sparkle on her wings, piccy has caught it nicely.. this cute Fairy Tilda image is framed with nestie shapes..
All the DP is from Basic Grey “Lemonade pad” gorgeous PINKs with a hint of lime.. I used one of the plain
sheets for the Cherry Lynn doily die shape..Flowers, border, & swirls are all magnolia dies..tonic B/fly punch,
ribbon gems & heart charm from stash..sentiment is comp. generated SB die..thats it for this cute PINK creation.

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 this week, I'd love it if you stopped by to say hello.

Your little Tilda is fabulous, love how you've coloured her. Fabulous that you went dark with the papers it really make Tilda pop right off the card.

Hello there,
Fabulous pink creation, love it.
Isn't it great to be able to use pink freely and not keep it as a guilty pleasure. lol
