Pinkie's challenge!!

The challenge over at Inky Paws is right up my alley!! The theme is "pretty in pink".

 Did the design team know that my sweet girl is name Pinkie?!!? It's Pinkie's challenge. I had to enter, otherwise she would have never purr for me again!

Pinkie wandered into my local stamp store when she was about 4 weeks old. The owner called me to see if I would take her. My husband said absolutely not! At the time we already had 6 cats and a dog. I lined up a home for this sweet girl, but needed to bring her home over night. When I picked the wee waif up, she was in a basket wrapped in a pink blanket with pink ribbons tied to the handle. I took her home, my husband took one look at her and said- "oh no, we are keeping her!!". It was a no brainer that she was named Pinkie. That was 18 years ago and Pinks is the only cat left and is the queen of the house. Life revolves around her.

Pinkie spends all her time in my studio. She used to try and help, but these days she is happy to just snooze away her hours in the studio.

At 18, I know Pinkie is living on borrowed time, so I cherish every moment with her.

For my entry, Pinkie suggested I turn Newton's Nook waves stencil around and use it as party streamers!! What a brilliant idea! I would have never thought of that. The old girl still has it in her!! 

Newton's Nook has some great new building dies, that I used today. I used the frames die and tag dies. My party girl is from the Birthday Bash set

Head over to Inky Paws for Pinkie's challenge and join in on the fun!! Pinkie can't wait to see what you all come up with too!
