Gill's B-day Hop - For the Love Of Pink

*Please scroll down for the Young Crafters Unite Blog Hop*

Happy, Happy Birthday to a wonderfully talented lady, Gill!  If you don't know Gill, you better stop by her site and meet her.  She is a wonderful lady who lives in Scotland (which I think is just fascinating) and is very crafty.  I was lucky enough to win one of her handmade pieces of jewelry (actually an earring and necklace set) on one of her previous hops.  I'm super happy to be able to participate in Gill's B-day Celebration!  Today's theme (since she, like me, loves pink) is For The Love of Pink.  How could I not get involved in this one? :0)  So, sit back, relax and enjoy the hop.  Blog candy, you ask?  But of course!  I'm giving away a $15.00 gift certificate and catalog to my Memory-Works store.  To enter to win, please become a follower if you are not already, and leave me a comment.  Easy as that!  Good luck and enjoy the hop. 

You should have arrived here from Lisa P  If you just happened upon this hop and want to start from the beginning, please start with the Birthday girl herself at

BTW, this is another HUGE hop so make a pot of coffee and hit up both hops I've got goin on today.  You won't be sorry!  :0)

For my project today I must admit, I've slacked.  I've had an extremely difficul day today and I was unable to have time to create anything new so I'm posting a card I created a while back.  I wish my day hadn't been so rough, because pink is my favorite color and I would have loved to go all out for this one and create something spectacular, but I was unable to do what I really wanted. Please see my third post of the day if you are interested in what happened.

Gill, I apologize for this project.  It is not entirely pink, but it does have pink in it.  Still think it's pretty darn cute!  I can't believe I forgot all about this card!  I make and give away so many that I forgot I even made this.  I hope you like it. :0)  If I have posted this before, I really apologize, but I don't think I have.  Please let me know if you've seen it here before and I'll add another card to this post if that's the case. :0)

To be honest, I made this a while back so I don't remember what I used or even which cartridge this is from!  I'm sure I could look it up if anyone wants to know, but I do know where a few things came from:

Sentiment:  Typed in MS Word and printed on white paper, used scalloped scissors to cut it out
Background Paper:  Actually is textured, not sure where from
Cardstock:  Michael's Recollections Brand
Ribbon:  Really Reasonable Ribbon
Lace:  Stash

Now don't forget to become a follower and leave a comment for a chance to win!  Check out my other two posts (one is a blog hop) and also while you're here, be sure to sign up for my 500 follower giveaway!  It's gonna be awesome!

I'm sorry to hear about the trouble with your pets..
I have a dog I love to death but you must remember you and your health are number one. DO what's best for YOU and don't listen to anyone's negativity.

I love your card, beautiful job. Keep your chin up! :)
