The Pink Squadron


Well we had a very lovely weekend - on Saturday morning we went to the local RSPB to walk Whisper and count birds for H's school project, then in the evening my friend and i went to The Hawth, Crawley to see 'Birdsong' and it was great, then yesterday we went to 'Chesworth Farm' in Horsham for crafty activities, a nature trail and a Police search dog was practicing his finding skills, by looking for lost children, which H thought was great.

As there are a few Monochrome and Pink Challenges around at the moment, i thought i would dust off a stamp and papers, i've had for a while, the papers are Dovecraft - 'Back To Basics', Sentiment (originally said Hugs And Kisses, but as it was a pig image, i changed it to Hogs And Kisses) 'Cuddly Buddly', Die Memory Box 'Corner Bow', Ribbon The Ribbon Girls - Seam Binding, Pearls are from stash.

Today's Card And Challenges :

Crafty Creations - where Challenge No: 219 is 'Pink And One' - I went for White

Simon Say's Stamp - where the Challenge is 'Anything Goes'

Creative Inspirations - where Challenge No: 211 is 'Ribbon And Pearls'

Totally Gorjuss - where Challenge No: 181 is 'Ribbon And Pearls'

In The Pink - where Challenge No: 19 is 'Ribbon And / Or Ruffles'

Sketch And Stash - where they are up to Sketch No: 112 - and i've turned it round - my old stash is the stamp, papers and pearls, my new stash is the ribbon

Image - Penny Black - 'The Pink Squadron'
Papers - Dovecraft - 'Back To Basics'
Die - Memory Box - 'Corner Bow'
Ribbon - The Ribbon Girls
Sentiment - Cuddly Buddly
Pearls from stash
