Welcome to the Think In Pink Blog Hop – LoveBug Creations is very happy to be a part of this event.  Today is National Pink Day so this hop is dedicated to all things pink

Mama LoveBug has two projects to share today – one is a graduation pocket card using, of course, pink as the main color.  The paper doll is a Sizzix die cut and Sizzix face stamp as are the accessories – the cap, gown, and diploma.  The sentiments are from Pink By Design - "The tassel is worth the hassle"(on insert) and "hats off" which were adhered to two butterflies (SU punch) plus a longer sentiment using pink chintz paper (both on base of card).  For added definition I used pink stickles and pink pearls to add PINK MAGIC.............




My second project is a birthday card for one of my daughters – the image is from La-La Land, which I colored with pencils, markers, and gel pens.  The sentiment was again from Pink By Design. I started out with some very sweet SU double-sided paper to fashion the pocket card.


The next two pictures are the pocket card base and insert of the Birthday Blessings - the sentiment on the bow has reference to "calling" which goes splendidly with the La-La Land Marci image. For the base I also made a patchwork pink bow using a Sizzix die and several squares of pink SU paper.



And here's the finished pocket card.



Hope you’re having a great pink day and thanks for hopping by.  Leave me a comment and become a new follower if you've a mind............Remember, no matter how you piece your paper, have fun with it..........cyberhugs...........Mama LoveBug.

Very cut pocket cards. I'm still new to the crafting world, so I have yet to make any. I love the image of the little girl. You've colored her so beautifully! Coloring intimidates me! Lol.

Thanks so much for sharing!
