Bright and colorful

Hiya sweeties!

Do you want to hear something kind of cool? I was in my dashboard getting ready to start this post and noticed that there were 999 posts here at A thousand sheets of paper... making this post number 1000! And 1000 posts means at least 1000 cards made... how wild is that?! It sure wasn't something that I was keeping track of or watching for but I gotta say that I'm glad I noticed this milestone before it passed... it just puts a smile on my face. :)

So, my 1000th post is for a brand new challenge
over on the Tickled Pink challenge blog! This week we want to see you create bright and colorful cards. So don't be shy when choosing your papers and embellishments... the bolder the better! Just be sure to use a Tickled Pink cutie somewhere on your card or creation.

Surprise, surprise that I was right in the zone with this one. Hey, it's no secret that I love color! And because I've been wanting to transform the new Artemis Lylah into a cupid it was another Valentine's card for me. Luckily I had these new Sweet Cakes Valentine papers to pair up with her because nobody does bright and colorful quite like Doodlebug does. This gave me liberty to go bright and bold with her coloring as well... which includes Carisa's fun red hair combo. :)

Ok, now it's time for you to get creative, check out the amazing inspiration from the rest of the design team girls and play along with us this week. There is a free digi of your choice up for grabs and the winner is now selected by random generator!
Don't forget that your card must feature a Tickled Pink stamp in order to qualify for the prize... these include: Lil Lolitas and Lads, Pinkettes, Pink Pets and Cherries. All of which can be found in the Tickled Pink store.


Good luck everybody!
