Announcing My Pink Designers (July-September)

Happy July Everyone!!!

Are you all ready to meet My Pink Designers for my second term??  This has been a super tough decision and I am so blessed to have so many devoted viewers send in submissions.  I wish I could pick you all but I had room for only 7 new DT members.  I have chosen a little over 100 to be added to the gallery so watch for that in the next few weeks.  

Here we go............  Introducing My Pink Designers!!
(They have not been notified yet so this is a SURPRISE!)
Yes!  This is Emma who served on my previous Design Team.  I have decided that every new term I will bring over one of my current DT members.  When I served on the Advisory Board with Stampin' Up that is what Shelli did and I loved how it worked.  

Welcome back Emma!!
Helen Bisesi
Lauren Davila
Katie Jones
Cristi Burton
Kimberly Tracy
Erin Schreiner
Edna McGreevy

I have an honorable mention that I would like to share.  Even though I could not use her this term on My Pink Design Team I wanted to give a shout out to her amazing project!!!  

Honorable Mention - Kathy Martin
I just LOVED how Kathy made a little village and included a My Pink Stamper store!!!  I love it!!
Thanks again to all of you wonderful, wonderful crafters!!  Thank you for taking time out of your incredibly busy lives to send in submissions for this term of designers.  Please know that you are all talented and I wish I could accept you all!!  HUGS!

A Color Challenge with My Pink Designers & Guests!

Hello Everyone!!

Are you all ready for a fun color challenge??  All you need to do to join is create an ORIGINAL project using these colors and add it to the inlinz box below.

Color Challenge:


Here is what you will be creating for!!  One of our participants will win one of my new stamp sets called Buggy Punnies!!  I will be drawing the winner on Monday!  Plenty of time to join us!

It can be whatever you'd like to create!!  Have fun!!
Here are some of our Design Team's Projects, plus a few guests!


Here is what I came up with for the challenge! I knew these pictures and these colors were a perfect match! I used the Mickey Font cartridge and Chocolate Chip, Only Orange, Melon Mambo, and Gable Green Cardstock from Stampin' Up!




Hope you Have a Tweet Day!  
I used the Straight from the Nest and ZooBalloo cartridges, Peachy Keen Stamps, PTI Ribbon, and Colorbok Designer Paper Packs and last but definitely not least the new My Pink Stamper's Tweetie Hoo Puns stamp set.  A must need!

In a jam?

...just perfect for my situation, lol.
(I know it looks more like a boy in girls clothes but remember, I had to alter my plans. :-)

The In a jam? is one of the new stamp set releases from My Pink Stamper called Fruit and Veggie Puns.
As you can see you can use this one for other than fruits and veggies :-)

I also wanted to take this opportunity to say
Thank You So Much

It means the world to me.
Love You All

Hello everyone...nothing says SUMMER to me like a nice, sweet and juicy slice of watermelon. Most of us include watermelon in our summer picnics and get together. We even make baskets with the watermelon hard skin to house some other fruits for our guests/host delight. Since I can give you all the real thing I made this cute card for your inspiration.
It is a 5 by 7 inch card, the background paper is from K&Co and the solid textured cardstock is from AC. The watermelon is from the new Preserves cartridge cut at 3.5 inches and the tag is cut at 1.75 inches. The sentiment on the tag reads: "Sweet Wishes" and is from My Pink Stamper clear stamps Sweet Occasions set. The card base is a kraft cardstock.
Enjoy my simple but sweet summer card :D
Love and hugs to all from flowerdisco.

I'm just testing out a new secure comment form!!

Can you leave a comment on this post for me?  I am trying to see what happens after 200 posts.  Does it start a  new comment page or is it the "page that never ends"?  That will be very FUN for giveaways!!  NOT!

P.S.  I am the only one who can see your e-mail when you are adding it  on the comment form.  I will never give this information out to anyone.  

Thanks everyone!
