Gold and Pink

In my humble and usually accurate opinion, gold is the girliest color around. Combine gold with some pale pink and you have the ultimate girly color combo.

look at those nails!
The challenge at Paper Smooches Sparks this week is to incorporate gold into your project.


I embossed this tree stamp from Paper Smooches "Warm Hearts" in gold, then colored with Prismacolor Pencils in pale pink and silver. The sentiment is from the "Chit Chat" set, and then I added some little gold Stickles throughout the card.



In case you just didn't get enough of my cutie Meeko from his birthday post, I have another photo to indulge you with!

Me and Meeko in the park for his birthday
And his little brother, Pumpkin, got to join us at the park as well...

Squeeeee!!!
They're both so cute I could just give them squishes all day long!

  5. Pig, can you tell me more about him? I can docrafts and dogs, but seeing pumpkin free at the park makes me wonder if he would be great for kids? And you are right. Gold is good!

    1. hey wida! thanks for your sweet words about my Pumpkin :) he is a total sweetheart, and him and my small dog are actually best friends. Pumpkin is now comfortable enough that we keep his enclosure open and our dog goes in and out to play with him or say hello. i think it is a great pet choice for kids because they can be held and cuddled, have a sweet personality, and are fairly gentle. just make sure they get fed fresh veggies every day :) Let me know if you ever get one!!!
