Looks like it is time for Pink Saturday over at

One lot of vintage paper ephemera I have listed on my site... the pink and plain colored hand written pharmacy prescriptions I found at the monthly Burlingtion Antiques Fair - turns out the show AMERICAN PICKERS was filming there that day, paced by the crew several times - the fair ground was PACKED!  Lovely vintage rose card is even nicer than its picture, thanks to the long, handwritten letter inside of it. The bottom card is more of a dull coral color but also a "gem" with a handwritten letter inside!

If you haven't bought, or for that matter seen this issue of Somerset Stdio Gallery mag - you are really missing a ton of amazing creative "eye candy" !!!  As far as I am concerned, Stampington & Company have the most incredible craft magazines!

Keeping it short and sweet this week, have a lot on my list of things to get completed! Oh, but before I go, just wanted to give a shout out to a new blog I discovered last week thru Pink Saturday,
 Very talented with the card making!
Hope everyone has a wonderful Pink weekend!

Happy Pink Saturday
I love Stampington & co. Over in the U.K. we have nothing remotely like any of their publications.
I don't have Gallery but I can imagine it is amazing as I know a few friends who are published in it.
Have a wonderful weekend.

Stampington is a great craft magazine. I finally broke down a purchased a subscription after years of hit and miss at the craft stores.

Lovely ephemera collection... but then ANYTHING PINK is great. (I couldn't believe my eyes when I saw even a couple of prescriptions.)

I have never purchased the magazine Stampington & co. I will have to check it out at Barnes and Noble. The cover looks so delightful.

I am your newest follower sweetie. I can't wait to see what you share next. I would love to have you stop by as well, and would be tickled pink to have you follow. Have a glorious weekend. Country hugs from Phoenix, Sherry
