For the Love of Pink Blog Hop!!!

If you are looking for the PCJ Summer Fete Blog Hop (where there are lots of prizes to be won) please click HERE!

Hello and Welcome to the "For the Love of Pink"Blog Hop!!  Today is our wonderful Host Gill's Birthday who loves everything Pink so before hopping along please join me in wishing her a Happy Birthday!


If you have arrived here from Linda's blog then you are in the right place. If you've just dropped in for a visit then why not join in the PINK fun and head back to the start at the Birthday Girl's (Gill's) Blog

Well as much as I really wanted to be a part of this blog to help celebrate Gill's birthday I have to say I really struggled to work with Pink! I am not a pink girl at all.. never have been so this was a real challenge for me!! So this card took me a long time to make even though it looks like a pretty simple card!! I just couldn't decide how to decorate it!! In the end I think it turned out ok!! I hope that Gill likes it, that's all that matters I guess, after all, today is all about her!!

So here is my card!!
I couldn't do an all pink card - I needed to break it up a bit but it is mainly pink!!! I coloured the owls in with my aquacrayons and although you can't see it I also dusted the owls with shimmer chalk for a bit of sparkle!! There's also some Kindyglitz added around the owls!! And I've just added buttons and flowers and rhinestone's to decorate the rest of the card!!

Well that's it from me!! Your next stop on this PINK hop is over at the very talented Debbie T. I'm sure she will wow you with her PINK creation.
Enjoy the rest of your hop!!

Until Next Time... Enjoy!! xx
