Hi Pinkies

Today with have a brand new challenge AND some exciting news!

Firstly... the challenge...  This time the theme is 


Now you don't have to use both.....  it can be an EITHER/OR - but we'd love it if you did try to use both... you know us for liking it ALL.... don't you??


Here's what the lovely Pink Ladies have come up with for you this time...

And now........  our EXCITING NEWS!!  As we've recently lost two of our lovely Pink Ladies (so sad to lose them - but they've both had new job prospects - so it's totally understandable)  ... and so we have two fabulous new girls to welcome to The Pink Palace!  We're thrilled to bits that they've joined us - and have their pink satin jackets all ready!  You'll see a little bit about each new Pink Lady beneath their cards..

The first is...

Hi, I'm Rebecca and I live in Lancashire. I've been making cards for a few years now but my crafting journey has taken on a new lease of life since I started blogging and discovered so much inspiration within the online crafting community. I love using pretty pink papers and embellishments and am so excited to be joining the In the Pink team!

And now we have..

I am married and a mother to a beautiful and talented daughter. We live on the East Coast of the US in Pennsylvania, where my happy place is in my Studio. I have been working in the papercrafting industry for over 6 years teaching classes, working on design teams and even on occasion being published. I also enjoy reading, riding horses, going to the movies and hanging out with friends.

And haven't they started off their time with us well?  Such STUNNERS!  We know they'll be very at home here at the Pink Palace... and we look forward to seeing their future creations - hope you will too!

You can also pop over to our FACEBOOK PAGE to share your pink creation there too so your fellow pinkies can see it properly... we'd love to see you!

Happy Pink Crafting..
