Hello Pinkies..

Well, we seem to have stopped you in your tracks with our recent Sketch challenge....  hope we didn't scare you off...  however, we did have some fabulous entries... which again made it difficult to choose!

We decided to choose those Pinkies who we felt followed our Sketch more...  but like always, a great big  thank you to all that entered.

Our choice this time is:

Hope you like our choice this time..... some pinkies haven't just used the sketch as shown.... they've rotated and interpreted it a different way......  which we love to see.  Please take your well deserved badge ladies..

Hi Pinkies

Today we have a fabulous new challenge for you... but for this theme, we've decided for the first time to give you a sketch to use...  Sound good?

We'd love to see what you can come up with using this sketch....  but don't forget you have to use MORE PINK THAN ANY OTHER COLOUR (do we sound like we're repeating ourselves?? LOL!)

Here's what the Design Team have come up with to inspire you:

Now.... our exciting news!!  We have been joined here at the Pink Palace by two more lovely Pink Ladies who we'd like to introduce to you with their gorgeous creations for this challenge...   So say hello to:

Here's a little bit about Gayle...

"Hi.. my name is Gayle and I live in Birmingham West Midlands with my husband Chris, daughter Bethany, son Josh and Pongo the dog! I have 2 older children Natasha and Mitchell who have both left home. Natasha kindly made me a Nanna at the ripe old age of 42 so I have a 2 year old grandson called Jacob who I adore.  I have been a Police Officer for 15 years and got promoted to Sergeant 4 years ago so I'm always busy in one way or another!

I started crafting nearly 2 years ago when I found myself with a couple of weeks off work and bored so bought myself a tatty teddy stamping kit..and the rest is history as they say. I don't think I have a particular style..If I have I haven't found it yet! I obviously love Tilda and who doesn't love PINK??? I was so happy to be asked to join these lovely Pink Ladies and I hope to give you a little bit of inspiration with my creations."

And now we have

"Hello ladies! Let me introduce myself a little bit . My name is Helene and I live in Montréal, a city in the province of Québec,Canada. I make cards since 6  years now! I used different mediums for colouring my stamps, but now I'm always using my Prismacolor Premier with solvent and I love it! It's like  when I was a little girl with my pencils. I love pink of course, flowers ,pearls, ribbon...all girly stuff! I'm a French Canadian and who could believe one day I would be a DT in a challenge blog in UK! It's really mean that scrapbooking as a universal language!  I'm very happy to be a pink lady and I hope my cards will inspire you!"

It's so exciting to have two new Pink Ladies...  and as you can see from their fabulous creations using the sketch... we're very luck to have them!!  The Pink Palace is certainly going to be a fun place to be with all the girlishness and giggles!

By the way... if you'd like to see more details of any of the cards shown... just click on the name above the card...  it'll take you straight to the blog which features the card.

So Pinkies..  We'd love to see what you can come up with using our sketch... but don't forget the most important rule......  (altogether now....)  TO USE MORE PINK THAN ANY OTHER COLOUR (other than white of course)!! lol!

So get out your pink paper, pens, glitters etc...  we can't wait to see how you interpret this sketch..

Big Hugs and Happy Pink Crafting..
