With Love at In the Pink

Good morning my lovely crafty friends.

Oops it seems to be another little while since I last posted and also had the chance to pop round to see you all but still so busy and loving every minute of it - especially the little road trip I had with some of my lovely DT buddies to Thetford at the weekend to help out on the Dies to Die For stand - will share a photo at the end of this post.

But the real reason I'm here is to share my DT inspiration for the new challenge over at


this time we have a fabulous theme:


and that gave me the perfect opportunity to play with some gorgeous new goodies I bought at the weekend:
So I started by spritzing some Worn Lipstick and Picked Raspberry Distress Inks with a spritzer I made myself from Inka Gold in Magneta and water - what the photo doesn't pick up is the gorgeous pearly sparkle this gives. Then I smooshed it onto a piece of good quality white card to create my inky background.

I die cut the gorgeous Die-Namics Abstract Heart - from DTDF in white and also in pink glitter card and then inlaid the pink glitter pieces - it did take some time - but I think it was worth it :o)
Then I drew around the outline of the die onto black card and fussy cut it to create a narrow border.

Other items used:

Design Paper - MFT Hearts and Stripes

Our sponsor this time is

offering 1 lucky winner $12 to spend in their online store.

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

So before I go here's a fabulous photo of my lovely DT buddies at the DTDF stand at the weekend - what a brilliant day we had:

So on the front row from left to right we have the gorgeous Tracy, Kat, me, Annette and Squirrel and of course the beautiful Faye and Sue at the back.
And remember - what happens on tour stays on tour :o) 

Thanks for popping by.
Have a fabulous day.
