And a little bit about Lorraine...
"I've been crafting for most of my life, from sewing and painting to card-making. I started my little blog about 5 1/2 years ago and it that time I've made some lovely crafty friends. In between working and looking after my two children, I love colouring and find it's the perfect way to wind down."

And even more excitement... we have a fabulous Guest Designer  joining us for the month of April...  please welcome the lovely Carole Pollard - here's her fabulous make..

Here's a little bit about Carole...
"Hello to all you lovely Pinkies - my name is Carole and  I live in the NE of England. I’ve been crafting most of my life but became addicted to card making, in particular stamping and colouring after I retired. I love the friendship that crafting and the Blog world has brought me. I’m absolutely delighted to have been asked to be a Guest Designer this month for In The Pink, especially as its one of my favourite blog challenges."

Our generous sponsor for this challenge is Di's Digi Stamps - you could win a fabulous $12 voucher to spend at their online store on wonderful digi images... take a look by clicking on the logo below to go straight there...

Hi there lovely Pinkies...

We have a wonderful new challenge for you today - our theme is 

FLOWER POWER

So we'd love to see what you make using flowers.... either included in your image, using diecuts or mulberry flowers... or whatever you can think of to include some sort of flowers!  Easy hey??  Don't forget our number one rule though, that you need to use MORE PINK THAN ANY OTHER COLOUR (with the exception of white and neutrals of course), otherwise your entry may not be considered.

Now, I'm afraid we have sad news (get out the pink tissues!)...  The sharp sighted amongst you may have noticed that we are a couple of photos short on the sidebar today - we've lost two of our lovely Pink Ladies in the one week!!  Our fabbie co-hostess Kat and our lovely Debs have both decided to step down as they have lots of other things going on..  We'll miss them lots of course, but wish them well in their future crafting adventures and thank them for all they've done for In The Pink.

So for the time being - we're going to get by with just the five of us... Annette and Squirrel take turns each challenge, so we will generally have four Pink Ladies making each time.

We'd love to hear from you in our comments section - do you enjoy our Pink challenge and want us to continue??  Would you like to see changes and if so, what?  Please show us your love...  In the Pink was started to have fun and to share our love of PINK... and we would love to continue if we know that we're hitting the right buttons!  We'd love to see lots and lots of entrants this time - we can break some records!

But back to the challenge...  let's see what you can come up with for our FLOWER POWER challenge (in PINK of course!)

Big hugs
