Pink Wars!

Pink Wars My Daughter and a couple of work colleagues, all hate pink and they are involved in a game called Pink Wars. They keep trying to out pink one another. If they have a trip away they bring back a pink gift, for example. Well one of them is having a wedding anniversary soon, 28 years I think! So the husband being a fun kind of guy suggested that they get me to make an anniversary card along the pink wars theme which he will sign and then when she thinks he has got her a pink card he will give her the other card, which has no pink at all.

Anyhow, sadly I don’t hate pink – it’s not my favourite colour, that’s purple, but I quite like it and managed to get really girly and pink with the pink wars card.

The image is a LOV, and I coloured it with both promarkers and prismas to give a bit of extra depth.  The flourishes are made with Marianne Creatables dies, the flowers are from my stash as are the lil pink heart gems, the ribbon came off of some underwear my Daughter bought. Told you she hated pink, so she cut off the pink ribbon and I snaffled it. Knew it would come in handy one day. The little hearts surrounding the image are the waste from a Nestie pendant die. The sentiment I made on the PC with a Dingbat font, well the scrolly bits anyhow.

The real card from him I first did in Lilac, but my Daughter told me it looked pink so I had to redo it in blue. The blue I chose is very definitely not pink!Pink Wars - Lilac

Personally I prefer the pink card and wish I had made it blue as it’s only meant to be the joke card, but hopefully he and she will also like the plainer blue one.

The image and sentiment are from Elusive Images, as if the background rose. I stamped the main card up in Memories Pale Blue ink, the background mat in Distress Tumbled Glass, the main image in Broken China.

Challenge Up Your Life – Celebrations - In honour of their 1st Birthday they wanted a birthday themed card or something else you could celebrate.

and a second entry into

Order of the Opus Gluei – You’ve got to move it out of your stash and into a project – The gems have been sitting in my stash for an awfully long time and the stamp has been around a few months and as yet uninked! The BP is one of the very first things I bought and it came from a book which had paper, vellum and sentiments in and I don’t think, to my shame, I ever used anything from it before!

the Blue card I am entering into Pink Wars - Blue

ABC Challenge – B is for Blue – I think this qualifies lol

Now I have to go make a card with a coffee cup on it. People do ask for the strangest of things, lol

  2. Lin, your pink cards and blog are so cute and pretty.

  3. Gorgeous cards, Lin!

    I have to say that pink is probably not one of my favourite colours, but I would have loved to receive that beautiful card, despite all the pink!

  4. Before I get onto the cards, I've got to say that I LOVE the wording on your header! Is it your own - I haven't heard it before.

    Those cards are both gorgeous! The colouring in the LOV one is fabulous, but I've got to say I've got a huge soft spot for the blue. That heart is so, so pretty.

  5. i haven't really got a favourite colour, i think all colours are beautiful in there own way but some do work better for certain projects, i really like all these designs and they all looks beautiful

  6. All great cards and I LOVE the pink card, it's so pretty! I think I forgot to answer a question you asked... think you asked about the MME paper I used... anyway it was a freebie pad with a magazine - I'll send you some if you like hun, just send me your address :o) Lisa x

  7. The Pink Wars have me giggling. That husband is a real keeper to think of this. I LOVE all three of your cards. The Pink Wars card is adorable. And sure to make the intended impression. The other two cards are both equally lovely. Wonderful that they both look so good. Thanks for playing with us on OPUS GLUEI. You are on a roll, and I love it. Your sense of humor is right on with mine.

  8. err sorry I've some how put a link for my blog on yours didnt mean to i just have this habbit of clicking on things that say click here I will totally understand if you delete it again sorry didnt mean to do it

  9. Oh my Pink Wars ... your pink wars card is beautiful and I have to agree it seems a shame that it is only destined to be a joke! Then again would a card you had put less work into have been beleiveable? Love both your takes on the Damask heart.

  10. This is such a pretty card..(they all are!)

  11. Lin - both of your cards are beautiful. I LOVE pink and so I am drawn to the beautiful pink card - I also find the idea of the PINK wars pretty funny! Thank you for participating with us at Opus Gluei!

    Your blue card is exquisite! SO elegant!
