Pink Christmas

It's Saturday again and that means LIM time.  I was recently lucky enough to win a Ribbon Girl prize with this challenge and I'm looking forward to receiving my goodies shortly. Thanks so much Mandi and Chrissie!  This week the challenge is PINK, not a colour I use a lot and one I never would think to use for a christmas card, preferring the more traditional colours, but hey I'm behind again (as ever) so I gave it a go. 

I used Paula Pascual bauble stamps with Versamark on pink card (the design is more noticeable IRL) and punched out the design.  The strings were hand drawn and the baubles embellished with some silver flat backed beads.  My new SU sentiment set provided the perfect greeting stamped in Versafine Smoky Grey and a pink bow from my stash completed the look. I'm also linking this card to a challenge I've just found, In the Pink where the theme is Keep it Clean & Simple.

I've had a busy few days off and have been back to Worthing again this week to see Skyfall which I thoroughly enjoyed. (Daniel Craig's quite easy on the eye isn't he?)   The delightful Dome cinema which opened in 1911 has many of it's original features and I particularly love the ticket booth with its wood panelling and brass ticket slots.

 There is also a lovely bar and you are able to take your drinks into the auditorium,.... no plastic glasses either!  How very civilised.  After the film we went for a lovely Italian meal at Casa Ciro's just a few doors down. 

To round off here are a few photo's for November photo-a-day.

Something beginning with 'C' - Chalky



Gotta get on with more making for the craft fair now, what are you doing this weekend ?



  1. Your Christmas card looks stunning in pink, Fiona!

  2. What a glorious Christmas card - super colour too


  3. Gorgeous card Fiona and love the baubles and greeting. Very classy card.
    Got a big surprise when I saw where you'd seen Skyfall as that's where we'll be going this evening. We also love Casa Ciro too which is our fave Italian restaurant here so glad you enjoyed your meal and cinema visit.
    Really lovely photos too.
    Many thanks for your birthday wishes - much appreciated.
    Hugs, Fliss xx

  4. I like the non traditional colours for your baubles Fiona and like the way you stamped the inside of them differently each time. Gorgeous photos as always and the cinema looks wonderful - hope it's listed! What am I doing with my weekend... er, you have a point! Vicky x

  5. Gorgeous Christmas card, Fiona - you do make the most beautiful cards. I think the pink baubles look wonderful.

  7. I'm dying to see Skyfall, maybe next week!
    Great pictures, the cinema booth is particularly fabulous! x

  8. I love pink! And love pink christmas cards! Great job. x

  9. Pink balls for Christmas? Why not, Fi?! Gorgeous card, I rather like non-traditional colours and motifs.
    Chalky is a cutie, isn't he? And those red leaves are stunning.
    I love an old cinema, such a shame that most of them closed down or got turned into bingo halls. I think you'll find Daniel Craig is mine, I'm sure I saw him first...
    My weekend? Shopping, ironing, kids swimming, Strictly/X Factor, but best of all - grey roots gone, at vast expense but so worth it! xxxxxx

  10. Super non-trad Christmas card Fiona, if you haven't received you prize soon do let us know and we'll chase it up!
    Thanks so much

  13. What a gorgeous card.

    Hugs Riet.xx

  14. I love Paula's stamp sets and I like how you've used it here.

  15. beautiful christmas card, fiona! (and yes... daniel craig is quite easy on the eyes!!)

  16. Fabulous CAS card Fiona... Love how you've used a PP stamp for the baubles.

    I imagine the base of the card is pale pink and that it's only the camera that's showing it as white as obviously our theme this time requires lots of pink space. I know sometimes it's very difficult to get a good photograph of something very pale.

    Thanks for sharing with us at In The Pink... good luck and hope to see you again soon!
