FOUR PINK LADIES AND A QUICK GIVE AWAY


MY  FIRST  MS.  PINK  OF 

SATURDAY:

PENNY

PENNY  IS  MY  BLISSFUL  ATC  SWAP  PARTNER

FOR  FEBRUARY....ONLY  SHE  SENT  HERS  AND

I  AM  RUNNING  WAY  BEHIND  THIS  MONTH.

PENNY,  THANK  YOU  SO  MUCH...THIS  IS  SO  STUNNING

IN  PERSON.   MY  SCANNER  DID  NOT  COPY  THE

TRUE  BEAUTY  OF  IT.

I  WILL  TREASURE  IT  ALWAYS.

IF  YOU  DON'T  PARTICIPATE  IN  SWAPPING  ATC'S

MAY  I  SUGGEST  THAT  YOU  AT  LEAST  TRY  IT

FOR  ONE  TIME  AND  I  KNOW  YOU  WILL  LOVE

IT.   A  WHOLE  NEW  WORLD  WILL  OPEN 

UP  TO  YOU.


THIS  IS  THE  BACK  OF  THE  ATC.   PENNY  DOES

SUCH  A  BEAUTIFUL  JOB  WHERE  IT  IS  FRONT  OR

BACK.

YOU  MAY  SEE  PENNY'S  BLOG  AND  HER  SPOILED

CAT  NAMED  PELLIE  AT


YOU  WILL  REALLY  ENJOY  PENNY.


THIS  IS  THE  SOOOOO  VERY  SWEET  AND  PRECIOUS

CARD  THAT  CAME  WITH  THE  CARD.



THANK  YOU  AGAIN  PENNY.   I  LOVE  IT.

HAVE  A  WONDERFUL  WEEKEND  PENNY.



THE  SECOND  MS.  PINK  IS

MS.  MIMI.

MIMI  HAS  A  BEAUTIFUL  BLOG

CALLED 

BONJOUR  ROMANCE.

THE  PINK  GIFT  ABOVE  IS

SOMETHING  SHE  SENT  ME

THROUGH  THE  MAIL.

I  WILL  BE  SENDING  OUT  AN

EIFFEL  TOWER  ATC,  MADE  BY

MOI,  TO  THE  FIRST 

THREE  PEOPLE

WHO  GUESS  CORRECTLY

  WHAT  IT  IS.

I  WILL  ANNOUNCE  THE  THREE

WINNERS  ON  MONDAY  AND  SHOW

YOU  THE  ATC'S.


NOW  YOU  KNOW  WHEN  I  HEAR  OF  ANY  ONE

WHO  IS  GOING  TO  PARIS  OR  LIVES  IN  PARIS,  I

WILL  SHAMEFULLY  EMBARRASS  MYSELF  TO  PLEAD

FOR  THEM  TO  SEND  ME  A  POST  CARD  FROM

PARIS.

MIMI  KNOWS  OF  MY  LOVE  OF  PARIS.

SHE  LOVES  PARIS.

SHE  IS  SETTING  UP  A  TOURIST  GUIDE  SERVICE

FOR  THOSE  WHO  HAVE  BEEN  DREAMING  ABOUT

GOING  TO  PARIS.   I  AM  NOT  THE  ONE  TO  SPEAK

OF  THE  YUMMY  DETAILS  BUT  I  KNOW  SHE  WILL

SEE  TO  IT  YOU  HAVE  THE  BEST  TIME  EVER  WITH

THE  MOST  REASONABLE  COST.
 


MIMI'S  BEAUTIFUL  BLOG  IS




THIS  IS  THE  MOST  STUNNING  CARD.

MY  SCANNER  JUST  DID  NOT  PICK  UP  THE  BEAUTY

OF  IT.   IT  JUST  SPARKLES  LIKE  LITTLE  DIAMONDS.

DO  YOU  SEE  THE  LITTLE  TEA  CUP  WITH  THE  SWEET

BIRD  WEARING  A  CROWN.

THANK  YOU  SO  MUCH  MIMI

MERCI!


THE  THIRD  MS.  PINK  IS

MS.  CHERRY  CHICK.

HER  BLOG  IS


THE  ABOVE  EAR  RINGS  WERE  MADE  BY  HER.

I  WON  THEM  DURING  OWOH....ONE  WORLD  ONE  HEART.

I  WAS  TICKLED  OVER  THE  MOON.  

THANK  YOU  SO  VERY  MUCH  VICKI.

PLEASE  STOP   BY  AND  SEE  HER.   SHE  MAKES

BEAUTIFUL  JEWELRY.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I  MADE  MY  WAY  TO  100  BLOGS  OVER  FOUR 

DAYS  .  THERE  WERE,  I  THINK  869  PARTICIPANTS

FOR  OWOH.   IT  WAS  MY  FIRST  YEAR  TO  FLY

AROUND  THE  WORLD  FROM  ONE  BLOG  TO

ANOTHER.  IT  LASTS  2  WEEKS  AND  THIS

WAS  THE  5TH  AND  LAST  YEAR.

~~~~~~~~~~~~

NEXT  YEAR  WILL  BE  A  NEW,  SURPRISE  EVENT,

HOSTED  AND  CREATED  BY  MS.  LISA.

YOU  CAN  GO  TO  HER  BLOG  AND  READ  ABOUT  IT:


~~~~~~~~~~~~

IF  YOU  WANT  TO  SEE  A  STUNNING  DOLL  AND  I

MEAN  STUNNING

GO  TO


THE  DOLL  MAKER'S  NAME  IS  CHRISTINE

AND  HER  OWOH  DOLL  SHE  GAVE  AWAY  WAS

NAMED  ANASTACIA.   PLEASE  DON'T  MISS  OUT

TAKING  A  LOOK  AT  HER.

~~~~~~~~~~~~

THERE  IS  A  BLOG  I  DISCOVERED  OOZING  WITH 

SUGAR  SWEETNESS.  I  JUST  FELL  HEADS  OVER  HEELS

IN  LOVE  WITH  THIS  LADY  NAMED  KRISTIN  AND  HER 

PRECIOUS  DAUGHTER  KENDRA  ANN.  THEY  ARE

WANTING  TO  ADOPT  ANOTHER  CHILD.

HER  BLOG  URL  IS


~~~~~~~~~~~~

A  LADY  NAMED  CHRIS  HAS  A  WONDERFUL

BLOG.  SHE  IS  THE  MOTHER  OF  TWO  BOYS

WITH  AUTISM.

SHE  ALSO  IS  A  BLOG  THAT  OFFERS  FREE

CLIP  ART  AND  GRAPHICS.

A  VERY  NEAT  LADY  WITH  A  VERY  FULL

PLATE  AND  IS  SOOOOO  VERY  KIND  TO

OFFER  GRAPHICS  FOR  FREE.


~~~~~~~~~~~~





BELIEVE  IT  OR  NOT  SOME  PEOPLE  MADE  IT

TO  EVERY  BLOG  TO  SIGN  UP  FOR  THEIR  GORGEOUS

DOOR  PRIZES.   I  WAS  INTERESTED  IN  FINDING  SOME

NEW  FRIENDS  AROUND  THE  WORLD.

I  HAD  ONE  COMMENT  I  WILL  TALK  ABOUT  FROM

AN  ALL  ROUND  JOLLY  GAL.  SHE  WAS  WRITING  ME  TO

WARN  ME  THAT  TYPING  IN  ALL  CAPITAL  LETTERS

MEANT  YOU  WERE  YELLING/SHOUTING.

THIS  WAS  STANDARD  KNOWLEDGE  IN  BLOG  LAND.

SHE  DIDN'T  ASK  WHY  I  TYPED  IN  CAPITAL  LETTERS.

SOME  OF  YOU  KNOW  BUT  MY  VISION  IS  LIMITED.

IT  HELPS  ME  TO  SEE  EASIER.

I  AM  IN  THE  PROCESS  OF  GOING  BACK  TO  EVERY

BLOG  I  VISITED  AND  EXPLAIN  TO  THEM  WHY  I  TYPE

IN  CAPITAL  LETTERS.....NOT  THAT  IT  IS  REALLY

ANYBODIES  BUSINESS  BUT  I  AM  NOT  YELLING.

I  FELT  LIKE  IT  AFTER  HER  E  MAIL  AND  THEN  I

GOT  TO  THINKING  ABOUT  THE  PEOPLE  WHO  HAVE

LIMITED  VISION...WHO  MAKES  UP  THESE  RULES  IN

BLOG  LAND  AND  WHERE  ARE  THEY  LISTED...

THEY...WHO  EVER  THEY  ARE...NEED  TO  CHANGE

THE  RULES.....

WHAT  IF   SOMETHING  HAPPENS  AND  YOU

CAN  ONLY  USE  ONE  HAND  TO  TYPE.

OKAY...THAT  IS  MY  SATURDAY  CHAT.




WELCOME  TO  PINK  SATURDAY.

MY  FOURTH  MS.  PINK

IS   MS.  BEVERLY,

THE  PINK  OF  ALL  MS.  PINKS.

SHE  IS  THE  CREATOR  AND

HOSTESS  OF

PINK  SATURDAY.



MY  SHOW  OF  PINK  TODAY 

MADE  ME  SOOOOOOOOOOO

VERY  HAPPY  WHEN  MR.  SIMPLY

AND  I  WENT  INTO  THE  THRIFT

SHOP   LAST   SATURDAY  IN

EL  RENO.

I  DID  THE  HAPPY  DANCE  WHEN

I  SAW  HOW  MUCH  IT  COST

ARE  YOU  READY.......

TEN  DOLLARS...

TEN  DOLLARS...

IT  WILL  LAST  WAY  LONGER

THAN  FLOWERS.

THANK  YOU  HONEY  SO  MUCH.




JUST  LOOK  AT  THIS  BEAUTY.

OH  I  FEEL  SO  VERY  SPECIAL.

SHE  IS  A  HULL.

NEXT  TO  THE  HULL  THERE  IS  A  "P"  WITH  A

VERY  LONG  STEM  AND  AN  "R"  AND  A  "L",  I

THINK.

BELOW  THAT  IS

MADE  IN  USA  AND  SAYS  6  1/4  INCHES.


SHE  HAS  ONE  CHIP  AND  A  COUPLE  OF  VERY

FINE  HAIR  LINE  CRACKS  THAT  DO  NOT  GO

THROUGH.

DID  YOU  NOTICE  THAT  EACH  SIDE  IS  DIFFERENT.

I  LOVE  HER.

I  HAVE  SOME  NICKS,  DIPS,  JIGGLES,  AND  WIGGLES

MYSELF  BUT  I  HAVE  A  LOT  OF  LIFE  LEFT  IN 

THIS  'OLE  GAL.

I  THOUGHT  TEN  DOLLARS  WAS  A  STEAL  BUT  I

HAVEN'T  PRICED  THEM.


TETE  NEEDS  A  BIG  SQUISHY  HUG.

HER  FATHER  IS  QUITE  ILL  AND  HER

STEP  MOM  NEEDS  TO  HAVE  GOD'S

PEACE  SWEEP  OVER  HER.   

DEBBIE  H...OUR  MOSAIC  MAGPIE'S

HUSBAND  IS  STILL  IN  THE  HOSPITAL  AND  VERY

ILL.

MY  POST  TOMORROW  WILL  BE  A  PRAYER

POST.  I  HAVE  RECEIVED  MANY  NEW  PRAYER

REQUESTS.

SO  MANY  PEOPLE  HURTING. 

AND  KEEP  YOU  SAFELY  IN  HIS  ARMS  UNTIL

WE  BLOG  AGAIN.

THANK  YOU  FOR  DROPPING  BY  TO  SEE

ME.   IT  MAKES  ME  SO  HAPPY.

YOU  ARE  PRECIOUS.

HAVE  A  SUGAR  SWEET  DAY

ANGEL  HUGS

Debbie, my name is Sherry Bradford. I am Leila's older sister. I am so glad to find your blog! Leila took inspiration from yours and wanted us to have one where we could encourage people with our crafts, fun, and especially those battling cancer. She entered the hospital just as we got it rolling and never had a chance to post. That breaks my heart so much. But I am going to carry on the blog in her memory and hopefully with her help from heaven. She was such an inspiration to me. I can see why she loved your blog - it is BEAUTIFUL! I will come back so often - I feel like I have found something bright and beautiful out of all this sadness. I also want to thank you for the beautiful note you send me from Amy. I meant to get back to you but things got so messed up so fast and then Leila was gone. But I want you to know that I cried happy tears reading Amy's note. I will treasure it always. Thank you for posting such a beautiful blog and keep it up! It is a huge blessing!

Hi Debbie! Is the item that Miss Mimi sent you a compact mirror???.. I love the ATC card Miss Penny sent you! Having just fallen in love with scrapbooking and papercrafting (AND WITH MY UPS MAN.. Ha! Ha! He's the handsome prince who gallantly delivers my orders of scrapbooking supplies!!)... I did just go to the Blissful ATC Swapping blog to sign up! It sounds like great fun, and I now I just hope I can come up with beautiful cards like the rest of the members do, so that they'll WANT to swap with me! I don't know if I'll be signed up for March or not.. We'll see.. Have a great weekend! ((love~n~hugs)) ~tina

What a lovely pink post! I love that you are a prayer warrior! I absolutely believe in the power of prayer! Your little Hull vase caught my eye...I have a collection of Hull pieces (only 3, but it's a start!) I recently posted about them! $10? What a deal! Even with the chip and cracks...still a deal!

Hey Debbie,

Just wanted to tell you that I had a few people download those little girl images without a problem. I don't know why you were getting that weird message. Maybe try again tomorrow after having shut down. It's a shame you can't get them.

Cindy Lew's Studio said...

HEY DEBBIE, I AM SO GLAD YOU STOPPED BY MY BLOG, AND YOU CAN COME BY AND YELL AT ME ANYTIME YOU WANT:-) I WOULD NOT WORRY ABOUT THE BLOG LAND RULES AND POOOH TO WHO EVER CAN'T HANDLE A LITTLE CAPS IN THEIR LIFE. I JUST LOVE YOUR GREETING AT THE TOP OF YOUR PAGE.

THANK YOU FOR THE PRAYERS AND THOUGHTS FOR ME AND MY HUSBAND. I HAVE TO AGREE WITH YOU; OUR LIFE HAS NEVER BEEN THE SAME SINCE HE WENT OUT. IT HAS BEEN ALMOST 2 YEARS NOW AND HE HAD JUST WENT BACK TO WORK, BUT GOT LAID OFF AGAIN, SO WE WILL SEE WHAT HAPPENS. OUR WHOLE LIFE HAS BEEN TURNED UPSIDE DOWN; WE ARE BOTH SICK NOW AND I TRULY BELIEVE IT HAS TO PART TO DO WITH ALL OF THE STRESS WE HAVE BEEN UNDER, BUT I AM SURE YOU UNDERSTAND STRESS. IS YOUR HUSBAND OK, OR IS HE DISABLED?

I LOOK FORWARD TO GETTING TO KNOW YOU.

WARM WISHES AND MANY BLESSINGS TO YOU AND YOURS, CINDYLEW

You have been a busy lady flying through blogland, and I am glad you were also a prize recipient.
The creativity of yourself and others never ceases to amaze me. I have participated a few times with the ATC's but I am very slow at it and it takes me a long time to think of what to do, but I cherish the ones that I received.
our new vase is beautiful - I think you got a good deal!
