My very FIRST Pink Saturday! :)

Coffee of the Day - Caramel Twist

I am sooooooooooo excited! Today is my first time to be a part of this amazing phenom called 'Pink Saturday'!!!! I have sat by the sidelines for well over a year now and gazed at beautiful pink loveliness week after week. You know how fond I am of pink, and why I didn't jump right in with both feet is beyond me..... but I have taken the plunge, and oh, the water is sweet indeed! grins!

My first contribution may not be filled with the vintage or the soothing that you will find on other blogs, but it is inspiring to me and brings me great joy - some of the criteria for Pink Saturday.

For those of you who frequent my blog, the above picture will not be new to you. You have seen it before. But it is the inspiration for the card that comes after. For a while now I have wanted a pink Vespa. no, I still don't have one, yes, I still want one, and yes, one day, this bit of beauty will be mine to toodle around the countrysides of Ohio! :) So until then I will find my joy and contentment making cards and other craft projects using images of them. and that is fine by me. :)

You know my true love each day is coffee. and of course, pink. So what better way to begin this new adventure than with this adorable Princess Latte on a Vespa image from The Stamping Boutique. of course she has accents of shimmerz paint. The sketch comes from Card Patterns. Papers are from my Rhonda stash, and a new stash from my friend Melissa. I am blessed as all get out with the most amazing friends! I stamped directly on the twill with timber brown staz-on. Pretty much everything on here is a hodge podge of goodies, but isn't that what life is all about anyway?

Have a most beautiful PINK day! love to you all! :)
p.s. speaking of The Stamping Boutique, please feel free to join us over at The Latte Lounge - a fun forum for all kinds of chatter!

Welcome to Pink Saturday, Jennifer. I've never seen a PINK Vespa, and that one is really neat and I can just see you tooling around on it with your PINK do wear a helmet...right? I browsed your blog and love all of your very creative cards and the stories and information that went with each one. I hope you will stop by CollectInTexas Gal and see my vintage Mothers Day cards...Sue

That it is a neat Vespa, but I will leave the riding of it to you. They can be dangerous if not careful. Do not give up, you may be surprised and have one. Glad you shared such a nice post on Pink Saturday.
