boy, do i love pink!

first of all, can i say WOW! i had so many comments on my blog hop post HERE that i was smiling for two days straight :D seriously! oh, also, if you need a break and want a laugh, you should check out my embarrassing story over HERE a few posts back :D

well, i thought i would share a card that also comes from one of previously un-posted folders of my computer... i like this card because it showcases one of my obsessions:


ha! so you've noticed a few things: PTI sentiment stamps (borrowed from Paulina) and then a felt swirl, pink Denami ribbon, pink flowers, MME polka dot paper... and it goes on! my favorite colors are red, black, PINK and blue. and then i like orange, green, yellow and purple too :D

and to document the reality of my obsession with pink, here is my Christmas tree (with horrible lighting, but sadly the best i could get all season). i made all the bows myself, and bought most of the ornaments from WalMart, Target, or Michael's... all for cheap.

my friends and family all loved it when they visited, and i got a few sweet comments like, "can we just take this one home and give you ours to decorate here?" or "your tree belongs in a department store" ...all those sweet friends!

i added some white poinsettia flowers among the branches because my pink/ white theme needed more of the 'white' side :D i think i had 6 strands of pink lights in addition to the pre-lit set already on this (FREE) artificial tree. what did your tree look like last year?

anyway, thanks for visiting, hope you have a great Wednesday!
