It's another Pink Saturday! :)

Coffee of the Day - Caramel Hazelnut

Don't you just wake up on Saturday mornings now with a tingle because you know it is all about the PINK!???!!! it just can't get any better than this! so to make it official - welcome to PINK Saturday!

and to make it even more special, Tracey over at The Stamping Boutique drew a new Princess Jennifer Latte! I have been begging and whining and then begging some more for a 'get well' Princess Latte, especially since I have been sick for so long. thankfully this pneumonia appears to be on its merry way, so to celebrate, we have a brand new digi image! woooo hooooooo! isn't she wonderful!?! and she looks so much like me when I am sick in bed, well except that she is prettier and thinner and her hair isn't going 5 bajillion directions, but other than that we could be TWINS! :) oh yes, and I have my 2 dogs on the bed. grins! make room for the labradors!

anyhow, I thought this would make a fun get well card for someone special. and I found this great sentiment over at TLC Creations. Crazy 4 Challenges has a new challenge this week to make a pocket card. I haven't made one in for-ev-er, so I was glad to do it again.

Papers are K & Co. Smitten from my dear friend Kate, over at i {heart} papers. I added fruit punch stickles to the little scallops from this great new border punch. buttons are Making Memories & vintage, and that gorgeous rose is a Prima.

I challenge you to either try a technique or tutorial that you haven't done in a while. it's fun to go back and do some of those old standbys.

now it has been a week of PINK comings and goings at my house. let us pause for a moment of silence as we remember with fondness my cozy pink fuzzy slippers that sadly met their demise yesterday. The bottom of one completely blew out as I took the dogs for their 3 a.m. 'outing' when Latte tried to dash after the notorious skunk that was visiting our neighbors. sigh..... thankfully she didn't catch said skunk, but my PINK slippers gave it their all in this final mission for an aroma-free environment........

but on to the rejoicing as we welcome a lovely pink butterfly tiara into our home! the guys surprised me with this treasure for Mother's Day, and get this - it lights up!!!! of course, it had been flashing all day long before we realized that you must push the little button TWICE to get it to turn off. I think they just enjoyed watching me wearing a beautiful flashy flashy butterfly princess tiara as opposed to thinking that they were... gasp..... making fun of me.... oh horrors.... all day long...... and it wasn't until nightfall that I discovered the lovely lights of radiance all around my head. anyhow, all is well and they are treating me as the princess all moms and wives should be. :)

may your day be filled with all things PINK!

p.s. if I haven't made it to your blog from last week, I ask your forgiveness please. I am still trying to make the rounds. recovering from illness has slowed me down, but I will get there! :)
