Pinks and Reds at creative inspirations

Good morning to you! How are you today? I'm fine and well and looking forward to a nice run today - not sure what the weather will have in store for me though!!!!!

This week's challenge at creative inspirations is Pinks & Reds!
This week's theme was chosen by DT Member CAROLINE as it is her chosen month!

We ONLY want to see the colours Pink & Red on your creations,
of course you may also use Hair / Skin tones. 

This week we are joined by our brand new sponsor CRAFTIE-CHARLIE who are giving the Winner a £15 GIFT VOUCHER!

I've got some white on my creation too! And black - ooops!!! The dominant colours are pink and red though and thats what we're looking for!


I've used a die by heartfelt creations (thanks mum) to cut the flowers and have layered them up - some look a bit purply but trust me they are pink! The paper is from LOTV and the stamp is Tim Holtz.


Everytime I stamp this or see it it makes me sing the version of the song from the Moulin Rouge film - brilliant film - not seen that for ages!!!

Penny had a lovely day out yesterday - the weather was much kinder for her than it was the day before for Lucy. She had a lovely time and the best thing she did was climb a mountain (big hill) and drink hot chocolate at the top of it! Sounds pretty cool to me!

I got to see my dad yesterday too! He's looking well and is just about over the after effects of his procedure which is excellent. He's adamant he's not having it again though! 

Thats all for today - thanks for visiting and I hope to see you again soon! Hugs rachel xx

Good to hear that Penny had a good day too, kids just say the funniest things, I used to call little stones - boulders! Your car is beautiful, that flower die is gorgeous. Hope you have had a good day, apologies for being so late! Hugs, Anne xx
