Pink

I love the color pink. Not that I'm a 'girly-girl,' no, I've always been more of a tomboy, but pink has always made me happy. I've got a granddaughter who will graduate from LAW school (damn...how did she get so grown up so fast?!!), and when she was a tiny bit of a thing, if you asked her her favorite color, she'd say, "peenk." That's how our family says 'pink' now. Peenk. I don't think she's quite as taken with the color as she was when she was little, but her love of all things pink back then always sparks sweet memories of Jess. You can tell I'm about to show you a pink card today, can't you, lol?! I've actually made three cards in a row with peenk, but won't drown you in the color today. I'll save a couple for later, with hopes that I have time to post them. Been a bit busy around here with DH's PT appointments and such. If you see a headless chicken running around, don't worry, that's just me trying to keep up with all of my tasks....

I'd actually made this card last week, but my duties have kept me from posting it. I've used one of my favorite flower stamps; it's whimsical and fun, and dressed in pink, it does make me happy. It's headed off to Loll's CAS Watercolour Challenge, as well as SSS Wednesday Challenge.




That's a Studio Calico stamp garden, albeit, a small garden, and a MB sentiment. I cut my watercolor panel with an MFT Wonky die, and used my Zigs to color everything. I added a panel of pink edged with green ink and that was it. I hope your days are going well, and I'm hoping to pop 'round to all your blogs at some point today. Blessings to you, and as always...

So sweet Bev!! LOVE your peenk flower garden. It's adorable. I might have to see if I can buy that stamp! :) Great colouring with your zigs. Thanks for sharing with us at CAS Watercolour!

Loved the story about when Jess was little and she loved everything peenk! :) It's my favourite colour too! :) You can probably tell by the amount of cards I made that include pink. :)

Hope things settle down for you soon Bev. You need to R&R time for yourself, my friend! xx

I love peenk too, Bev ... though I'm also not a girlie-girl ... it's such a delicious colour ... and is simply delicious in your sweet garden here! I have some cards stamped with this fabulous image from the last LH trip ... think it was one of the overall faves for everyone! Thinking of you, mon amie ... big hugs & bisous, Anita :)

What a sweet bunch of peenk flowers! Love how you colored them and surrounded them with blue! Very pretty! Thanks for sharing the cute story about your niece!

Such a pleasing design, and now every time I hear the work pink, I'll be thinking of Jess's pronunciation! Thanks for sharing this with us at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge!
