Another Pink Saturday rolls around.

Thank you Beverly for hosting the Pink Saturdays, they are always such a pleasure to participate in.  I have met so many wonderful bloggers through your site and I have seen so many beautiful blogs because of your sharing spirit.   And in the true spirit of Pink Saturdays I will share another one of my favorite stops  Pats Pink Apron.  Pat is witty and fun, her blog has great recipes and gorgeous tablescapes.  Tablescapes, last year I would not have even known what that meant.  There is another whole world of bloggers who showcase the most beautiful table settings with the prettiest china, the kind that make you drool.  Pat shares another of my passions, collecting cookbooks.  I hope you will take some time and visit Pat at Pats Pink Apron.  
For today's card I used a beautiful free print from Emily at Sweetly Scrapped, she shares such beautiful vintage graphics on her blog too.  I printed it on the Epson matte presentation paper that I grabbed at Staples for $2.99 for 50 sheets.  I always watch Staples for great bargains on photo paper it makes a huge difference when printing vintage artwork and digital papers.  I also used my Perfect Layers rulers to get the precise edges and alignments on this card.  That beautiful square doily was cut from Lindsays Stamp Stuff Decorative Doilies SVG.  I used some Tim Holtz distress ink on the lace and the edges of the card.  I embossed the white card stock too.
OK, so by now I guess a few of you have noticed I have a problem with Word Verification.  I learned something new yesterday, after requesting something more legible to enter, for the 15th time, at a sweet bloggers site, I noticed there was also a "?" button along with the (garbled) audio and pick another scribbled unreadable mess button.  I pressed that little button and it let me "Contact Us" that allowed me to tell Google  I  have a problem reading the new version of Word Verification.  I hope a few of you will take a minute and let them know what you think about it too.  Maybe if enough of us complain they might figure out something better.  Thanks for looking and thanks for listening.  ~Diane

  6. Happy Pink Saturday!! Oooh...your card is wonderful!! I am truly learning to appreciate the talent of you stamping/scraping card making gals by being involved in this circle journal. Prior to that...not much involvement with papery stuff. I do love it and now realize that it's not an easy thing to do!! You do it so well, however!!

    Have a great weekend!!

  22. Hi Diane, I'm so glad you stopped by my blog so I could find you. Your card is beautiful and your description of the process and materials is wonderful too. I had no idea that there were so many products available for your craft. I would never know where to begin so I will just enjoy looking at your pretty results. I am having trouble reading the word verification now too and I'm glad to hear that I'm not the only one. I wish everyone would turn it off. I don't think it is needed! Have a wonderful day. Linda

  24. Your pink Saturday card is absolutely gorgeous! I really dislike the word verification...difficult to read and when I get to blogs that use it, I just want to click off and go on to the next blog.I don't know why people still use the word verification when they can easily just moderate comments.
