Happy New Year lovely Bloggers! Have you made a New Years resolution? If so, have you kept to it so far?!   My resolution is to eat less Ferrero Rocher and spend less on crafty things. Mmmmm - may have to give this a little more thought ..............

Wow, the four weeks since our last challenge at In The Pink have just flown by.
Huge thanks to everyone who entered the Pink and Pearlie challenge - we appreciate that you were all very busy in the lead-up to Christmas but you did us proud once again.  In fact there were so many gorgeous projects we had a tough time choosing just 4, so I think there may be more - do pop along to the Blog to find out who the Perfect Pinkies are!
Christine and I have a fab. challenge lined up for you this fortnight - we would like to see some "Luscious Lace" on your beautiful creations, and lots of Pink, as always!!

Recipe: -
SU Pink Pirouette card
Dotty paper from  the Tilda Flower Garden paper pad
Image - LOTV "Wish Upon a Star" coloured with Copics
Sentiment also LOTV 
Pink lace from Samuel Taylor, Leeds
Glamour Dust and crystal gems to finish.

Happy New Year Sylvia and good luck with the resolutions, you picked two very difficult ones ! I keep thinking I 'should' spend less on crafty things, but there is always something new to tempt me. Your card is beautiful with the sweet image (coloured so beautifully) & your lace is extra elegant. Definately pink & lace go hand in hand ! Have a great day, Shirley

Happy New Year to you too Sylvia.
This is certainly luscious lace and the card is too. Lovely, cute image and a great idea with the frame, well that's what it looks like to me.

My NYR is to use more ribbon, gems and to try harder with my card making.

Super cute image. I like how the lace on the card matches the frill of her tutu. Rachel.

Hi Sylvia, Its so good to be back to play In the Pink again. I hope to catch up with some commenting over this week, I have made a start but so behind that its like wading through water
Loved the Pink cards this time and yours is wonderful, I love the skirt of lace on it.
