Think in Pink Blog Hop


Happy Saturday, Bloggers!  Today is National Pink Day -- a day to bask in all the splendor that is PINK!  We are celebrating with all things pink for you today.  You should have arrived from Jessi's blog.  Jessi is hosting today's blog hop and has some awesome candy to give away.  If you want a chance to win, be sure to become a follower of each blog in the hop and leave a comment at each stop as well.  



For my project, I created a card for a swap pal that lives in the UK.  We both belong to a Smash Book group.  If you're not familiar with Smash books, you should check them out!  They are just another form of scrapbooking, and they remind me very much of old-school scrapbooking!

Anyway, my swap pal loves bright colors, especially pink!  So, I made a pink card for her using this bright pink polka dot paper and these fun, colorful cardstock stickers from Doodlebug.  I added some pink and white twine and a stamped sentiment in the corner to resemble a postage stamp.  I added a touch of pink to the stamped sentiment as well as some Stickles.  I like how the sentiment says "sending you happy everything".  In our group, members like to post pictures of happy mail received that day.  I thought the sentiment was kinda fitting for this card because of the intended recipient.  Overall, I was going for more of a CAS (clean and simple) look.


Thanks so much for stopping by!  Please hop on over to Paula's blog next to check out her pink project.  Have a good weekend!
