Challenge #2 - Things with Wings..

Hi Pinkies

This time our challenge is 'Things with Wings'.... so that covers a whole host of things......  the most obvious to us pink lovers being fairies (of course!).....   but then we have butterflies, birds, dragonflies....  the list goes on and on!!  We were so thrilled to see all the fabulous and different shades of pink you used in our '50 shades' challenge... so no doubt we'll get lots of different takes on this one too!

If you'd like some inspiration, we came up with these cards:

Again, we've used different shades and types of pink and different styles - now we'd love to see your 'winged' creations!!

This time around we're going to choose a top four.... as we found it too difficult to just pick three on the last challenge..  Oooh and don't forget, we're then going to choose our Guest Designer for the next month!

Don't forget to follow the guidelines at the top of the blog....  they're quite important to us.   We noted that just a few cards on our first challenge were entered into lots and lots of others.... our maximum is five other challenges... and we'd hate to have to nag!! LOL!!

So get out your pink pens and pink papers again....  we can't wait to see your entries this time.  We had 150 cards entered in our first challenge (check here to see if you were chosen as a Perfect Pinkie).........  and reached 210 followers - can you believe it??!!  That's got to be some kind of record.......  but........ we'd love to beat it!!!  So spread the pink word girls.......

Big hugs and big thank-yous to all our fab supportive followers for making In The Pink a success..
Happy Crafting..

50 Shades of Pink - Perfect Pinkies!

Hello Pinkies!!

Well we can only say WOWWWWWWW  what a fabulous response we had to the launch of In The Pink!!!  And such a massive big thank you to all of you who've joined us as followers, have supported and promoted us,  and have entered in our very first challenge.......  We really couldn't believe that there are so many pink lovers that were so happy to see us appear in blogland...  and feel that we have our own little pink community already..   thank you .. thank you..... THANK YOU!! 

Now...  we come to our Perfect Pinkie choice for our '50 shades of Pink' challenge.  Well, as we were staggered that we'd had so many entries, we really did struggle with deciding (don't think either of us would make X Factor judges!!), soooooo we thought the solution was to double up the number of Perfect Pinkies just this once.... and for each of us to choose three - so we have six in total!  So without further ado.....  in no particular order, our top six are:

We're sure you'll agree that we've had entries with such a fabulous range of styles, and it made our job extra hard picking just a few...  But we don't mind at all because we just LOVE seeing so many fabulous ways of using this gorgeous colour!!  Here is the badge for our Perfect Pinkies to take and display on their sidebar...  

Soooo now onto our next challenge which you'll find if you click here.... we've done a separate post for the new challenge.....  so please pop over to see what we've come up with this time!

Big hugs to pinkies everywhere....

FIFTY SHADES OF.................. PINK!

Hi Pinkies everywhere....

We're so happy today as it's our challenge launch day!!!   We hope you are all ready with your pink pens poised (that is soooooo difficult to say...), and your pink papers at the ready.....  not to mention your pink embellies....

And our launch theme is ............  called............  drum roll............

FIFTY SHADES OF............    PINK!!!!

Now those of you who have heard of/read the book that is riding high in the charts at the moment, will understand the relevance.....  (and no, you don't have to own up if you have read it!!)....  And those of you that haven't read it, well.......  it just means that for our first challenge we would like you to use pink....  in any shade, and we're not stipulating anything else......  so it's a kind of anything goes type challenge...  Just remember, we want to see LOTS of pink on your cards...

Here's our creations to lead the pink way....  More details of them can be found on our blogs.... just click on the link above each card.

Soooooooo  see how we said one of us is cute and girlie and one of us is elegant and classy?????  Or maybe not when you see our future creations... we could swap and confuse you!!

The challenge will be open for two weeks from today - with three winners chosen at the end of that time - who will all receive our 'Perfect Pinkie' badge!!  Each month, we'll choose one person who we'll invite to be our guest designer for the next two challenges.....  does that sound good or what?????

Now, we'd really love you to join in with our very first challenge...... we can't wait to see your pink creations in whatever shapes and sizes and for whatever occasion you like....   Just remember to check out the rules at the top of the page.....  it'll make life so much easier for us if you do....

Happy Crafting Pinkies..
Big Hugs

A little sneak peak......

Hi Pink Lovers!!

Well, a whole week has gone by since we announced that this fabulous new blog is going to be launched on 9 August!!  We've both been very busy working on our first challenge.... getting it all ready, getting the theme organised and most importantly, getting ready to look at all the fabulous entries we're going to have if the wonderful comments have been anything to go by!!

It really has been wonderful to see that there are so many pink lovers out there in blog land....  would you believe, we had over 100 followers in the first 24 hours?????????  What a fantastic response!!!!  Thank you all so much - we can't wait till next week...

We thought we'd just whet your appetite slightly by posting little peaks of our cards for the first theme..  we're not telling you what the theme IS till next Thursday..... but  can promise you it's going to be a good one!

I think you can tell from the little snippets of the cards, one of us is going to be sophisticated and elegant and the other is going to be cute and girly!!  We're not letting on which is which yet...

So, only seven more sleeps to go till the launch - hope you've got your pink pens at the ready!

Big hugs........
Christine and Sylvia
