A "Pink" Surprise!


Hi Everyone~

Many of you know Beverly at How Sweet the Sound who hosts Pink Saturday. Well...I wanted to surprise her with some goodies as a "thank you" for all she does...First, I created this pink birdhouse...

I design for Shabby Cottage Studio. I used one of their images in Photoshop and personalized it for Beverly.


Then, it was time to create this tag using the image and other embellishments...If you click on the picture, you can see all the details of this virtual garden.

So much fun to make!


And then, finally a little metal pail with the same graphic all glittered.


XO
Cindy

Happy Pink Saturday Cindy Sweetie...
Oh my gosh what a beautiful share you have once again. It just SCREAMS of happiness and beauty. I love strolling with you. You make my heart sing.

Ms Beverly is going to be so darn happy with her treasures, and yes she is SO deserving. She pulls us all together each and every Saturday to share, chatter, laugh and just have the best old time. I can hear her screaming with delight clear out here in the desert. Oh she is happy.

So happy to hear that DH made it home and you two have a little alone time together this weekend. I know you have been lonely. Welcome home DH. Now go have fun together, go out to dinner and spend a little quiet time.

I am casting my vote for you sweet friend. I simply love your SPRING creation. Hope you win girlfriend.

Have a glorious weekend. Hope to talk to you in the next few days. Oh and thank you sweetie. The mailman stopped by today. I love you girl.

Many hugs and SO much love, Sherry
