In the pink......OMG I'm crafting with PINK!

Good afternoon all, a later post from me today after work instead of before.  I had a busy morning today, having to get my youngest ready to go with his Dad to hospital in Inverness first thing for a check up.  He's been checked and all is fine (that is a matter of opinion!).
My eldest boy had his Geography exam, only two left to do now, French tomorrow and Chemistry next week, then that's him all done till higher time next year.  I needed to drop him off for his bus, I think he was the only one on it today as all the kids not taking exams have a long weekend.  That wasn't organised very well!
Then of course wee Holly needed a quick run to the beach before I went into work.

I've had a busy day in M and S, it's friends and family weekend this weekend and a dine in so it will be mega busy.  The dine in is great this weekend, lots of steak and whole chickens and your free bottle of wine for a £10 or you can super size it and pay an extra £10 for a bottle of champagne which usually retails at £25.  Well it would be rude not to!

Back to today and it is my turn to post over on The Great Scheme of things and the colour combination to share this week is "in the pink."  Now those of you who know me, know I don't really do pink so this was a challenge.  This is what I came up with.

For this card have used a chevron stencil with Distress ink picked raspberry. Then I added a Tim Holtz stencil Splatters over the top adding modeling paste. Once dried I added Versa ink Pixie dust pink glitter, only on the splat.  
The house is from Papertrey ink Love lies here, as is the sentiment.  The house is stamped with Pixie dust and Distress ink Worn lipstick then die cut, layered on to dark pink card and a bit of bling added. The whole image is then matted onto Bazzill pink card.

This card went to the lovely Joyce who has recently moved home and comes to my monthly crop.

I did buy stamps and stencils of splats and other random shapes recently, then wondered what I would do with them? 
I quite like the idea of a splat on a new home card, when you move into a new home the time will come when you want to put your own "stamp" on it!

That's all from me today, I hope you are having a good Thursday?  
It will soon be tea time and then hopefully I might get a little crocheting in later.  
Happy crafting all!
