In the pink!

Hi friends, hope you're all having a lovely Saturday! I spent yesterday re-organising my craft space and can't believe how much stash i found, there's so many things i'd forgotten i had!! 
So today's card is pink as i wanted to join in with and support a new challenge my lovely blog friend, Joann told me about. It's over at Tammy's Scrappin Corner, the theme is PINK and you have until tomorrow to link up! I love challenges and i love pink so this is perfect for me so fingers crossed.....!
I wanted to join in with Lisa's fun waste not Wednesday  this week as well as i've missed the last couple and while i was there i saw the fab sketch for this fortnight's challenge at A Gem of a Challenge so thought i'd combine the lot!
This is the sketch i followed and 
i coloured (using pro/flexmarkers) this cutie pie image that's been sitting in my drawer for the best part of probably a year! In fact everything i've used is either stuff i'd forgotten i had or bits & bobs from my scrap drawer! I loved making this card and it's a great feeling getting through a teeny bit more of my stash.......and making room for a bit more!!!
Hope the rest of your weekend is all you want it to be.
Thanks for looking.
