in the pink!

hello and a very happy second-to-longest-day-of-the-year to all those of us in the northern hemisphere*! isn't it great that we have lots and lots of hours of daylight in which to make cards? since that's the case, why shouldn't we make cards for the new CAARDVARKS challenge and get a shot at a rather fab prize? seeing as our sponsor this time is pink persimmon clear stamps, i bet you can guess what the assignment is, can't you?! that's correct: make a card with a persimmon on it!!!

hahaha! sorry. kidding. of course the challenge is to make a card that is PINK! it can be any theme, any size, any shape, and any shade...or shades...but PINK it must be! and linked up it must be to the pink challenge post by midnight, july 2nd.

this was a tough one for me, since, as you probably know, pink is a color in which i RARELY, if ever work.

hahaha! sorry. kidding again! pretty much everybody including stevie wonder knows that i looooooooooooove pink, and in fact, it's basically my default color scheme: pale pink, hot pink, salmon, fuschia, flamingo, cerise, cyclamen...and every shade in between... show up OFTEN on laureny cards!

why look, here's one now:

(patterned paper: sandylion, making memories, cardstock: basic grey; stickers + velvet flower brads: creative imaginations; bracket stickers: kelly pannacci; felt trims: k & co (is it just me or are these HARD to adhere?!) flowers: petaloo;

and here's ANOTHER one:

(patterned paper: urban lily, making memories; black glossy cardstock: ranger industries; alphas: creating keepsakes, heidi swapp, k&co, prima, provocraft, pressed petals; sequins & brads: queen&co; flower sticker: creative imaginations)

so now it's time for you to get out the supplies and get IN THE PINK!!! :)

*conversely, may i wish a very happy second-to-shortest-day-of-the-year to all those of you in the southern hemisphere; what with it getting dark so early, there's no reason not to stay indoors and make cards, right?! ;)

  4. Totally awesome Laureny cards...I got my lovely PINK box of goodies from Smiggle yesterday so I have more than enough PINK for quite a few cards...there's no limit on submissions...right??? I just love an excuse to make some yummy PINK cards...maybe even a card for someone I know who has a birthday very soon and happens to LOVE PINK...wonder who that could be??

  5. I love all Laureny cards, but the first one takes the cake! (I can hear you groaning...)

    Funny thing about think pink; I just happened to buy two pink mini baby stroller 2.5"x 2.5" gift cards that were on clearance at Michael's with the intent to cut off the back and mount on a card. I guess those two cards will be the next cards I will make :)
