betcha can't guess...

...what shade i've chosen to use this week for the "color my world" challenge at shopping our stash. we're meant to make a card or project using our favorite hue. surprisingly enough, i picked pink. i know, i know, you're shocked, right?! :) :) :)

(patterned paper: dear lizzy/american crafts, prima, basic grey; white glossy cardstock: paper accents; journaling card: sei (with the (blue) center cut out and replaced with that banner paper); birthday bingo card and wordfetti strip: october afternoon; sparkly diecut banner: pink paislee; velvet flower: petaloo; ink: colorbox; adhesives: staples brand gluetape runner, 3m foam tape, sewing machine)

ok, yeah, it's not exactly a surprise, is it? by now i think everyone knows i like pink... a lot. what can i say? it always looks fresh and festive to me and it always makes me smile. so it's perfect for birthday cards, which i need right now. my stash has dwindled a bit. there are quite a few summer birthdays amongst my female friends and i tend to make fewer cards during ICAD. next year, i need to plan accordingly, by making extras in the spring. note to self.

meanwhile, a rainbow of lovely cards featuring the favorite colors of my fellow DT members awaits you at SOS. why not cruise on over and see 'em, darlings?! ♥

Pink? I had to double check where I was ;) I can't love that flowery cupcake more! I think it's funny that (well, for me at least) "real-life" favourite colours aren't my favourite card making colours. I hardly ever use green on cards, but it's my go-to for clothes. And I never ever ever pick pink clothes etc, but I love using pink to craft. Go figure!
