Hi Lovely Pinkies...

Hope you're enjoying your summer so far...  we had fabulous entries for our Summer challenge - do check our previous post to see if your card got picked as a Perfect Pinky!

Now... we have a wonderful new challenge for you - this time it's...

(in PINK of course!)

Please don't forget our number one rule - that you use MORE PINK THAN ANY OTHER COLOUR (except neutrals of course), 

So let's see what you can come up with to fit this theme....  don't panic - it doesn't have to be too fussy and fancy - there's lots of ways of coming up with this style without fuss - and the Pink Ladies have come up with the following creations to inspire you...

And our lovely Guest Designer Squirrel's fabulous 

Big thanks to Squirrel for being our wonderful Guest Designer for the last couple of challenges!

Now, you may have noticed there are only five Pink Lady cards...  sadly, our lovely Viv has had to stand down - she was optimistic that she would be able to get back to us after moving house quite quickly....  but she's still unpacking her crafting stuff and trying to get organised - so has decided to take a break from her DT work.  We'll miss you lots Viv - but thank you so much for staying for a while at The Pink Palace - you've been a fabulous part of the team!

We've decided to keep our team of Pink Ladies to just the five (reminiscent of The Famous Five? LOL!), at least during the summer...  then in September or so, we'll get back up to our full compliment again at The Pink Palace and the vacant pink chair will be filled!

Our wonderfully kind and generous sponsor this time is Dies to Die For - you could win a wonderful £15 voucher (exclusive of shipping of course)  if your card is chosen as a Perfect Pinky and then randomly picked for the prize!  

Dies to Die For sell a wonderful range of not only dies, but stamps and other crafting items too...  from lots of the big US companies!!  Take a peek at their website...  it really is WOW!!

We've noticed that we're very, very close to getting to 500 followers - we'd love to make this magic milestone soon - so why don't you share our challenge with your pink loving friends - maybe on Facebook?

Big hugs and Happy PINK crafting...
Rizzo and The Pink Ladies
