Flower Power at In the Pink

Good morning my lovely crafty friends. 

Hope all are well and those not I wish well soon.

I'm hoping this post is written and published ok as I have had to do it on my iPad because my MacBook is poorly and won't start up so I'm on my way to take it to be fixed later this morning - wish me luck they can do something without me losing all my files!!!

So today sees the start of a new challenge over at 

and this time the theme is 


but don't forget it must be mainly PINK

Such a perfect theme for me to make a special card for my niece who will be celebrating her 30th Birthday today - so here's what I did:

As I am trying to keep this post short but sweet I will update what I used and how I did it at a later date.

However, I am more that happy to reply to anyone by email that would like the information sooner - just drop my an email to:

Please do pop over to the main challenge blog to check out the gorgeous inspiration from my lovely DT buddies.

Thanks for popping by and for any lovely comments you may leave.

Have a fabulous day.

Ribbon & Lace with Pink for In The Pink

Good morning my lovely crafty friends.

It has been so long since I last popped something on my blog and those that are my friends on FB will know the reason - sadly my Dad passed away 4 weeks ago yesterday whilst I was on my holiday (and also on my Wedding Anniversary) - to say I was devastated and somewhat broken would be an understatement.

However, on Sunday 11 September we held a Memorial Day for my Dad and although it was unbelievably emotional it was also heartwarming to share fondest memories with close family members and honour my Dad with his favourite takeaway - a chinese.
Just now I feel a sense of peace although another emotional weekend is planned when we take Dad's ashes back to our hometown of Belfast to scatter them over a playing field he loved to play cricket on as a boy - returning on his birthday 17 October.

I have been trying to 'carry on' with life as normal and felt it was time to rejoin my fabulous supportive teamies from
