Fussy and Fancy or Clean and Simple at In the Pink

Good morning my lovely crafty friends.

Hope you're having a good week.
Mine has been mixed but hoping it improves from tomorrow as it's my birthday - yipppeeee :o)

Unfortunately though I will be spending most of it on my own as my DH is in Leeds looking after his Mum who is going into hospital today for a minor Op and needs someone to be at home with her later today. And of course Jack will be at school.
But I do know that Aaron has plans to take me out later in the evening and then on Saturday we have a family meal booked with all the girls and all the boys and of course my adorable Grandchildren :o)

So today I'm here to share my DT make for the new challenge over at 

and this fortnight you can chose to be either


But whichever you decide - you must make it PINK please.

I went down the CAS route and here's what I came up with

Card Ingredients:

Image: Heartfelt Creations 'Feathered Daisy' stamped with Perfect Medium and heat embossed with True White EP 
Coloured with Copics
Inked with Spun Sugar Distress Ink
Dies: Spellbinders 'Labels 18' and Tonic 'Deco Trellis' Base Die Set 505e
Craftwork Cards Sentiment 
Martha Stewart Paperclay Butterfly

Please pop over to the main challenge blog to check out the awesome inspiration from my lovely DT buddies.

Thanks for popping by to see me today.
Don't forget my Birthday, Blogaversary and Thank You Candy ends tomorrow - still time to enter - see here for details.

Have a fabulous day.
