Good afternoon, crafters!

What a special Gah!  PINK!!! challenge we had honoring Leslie Hanna, a beloved SOS member who sadly and suddenly passed away a couple years ago.  She was *not* fond of pink but had an excellent sense of humor...

We had many pink-a-licious creations, but at last we settled on three faves, in order of entry:
Viv
Lee Ann

Marianne

Thank you, everyone, for playing with us, and please come join us for our current Watercolor challenge if you haven't already!

Shopping Our Stash #334 - Gah!! PINK!! - A tribute to Leslie Hanna

Happy Tuesday to you and thanks for visiting our challenge blog!

As most of you know, our dear friend and teammate, Leslie Hanna, passed away suddenly two years ago on Christmas Day. We all miss her friendship and her incredibly snarky sense of humor. The SOS Crew always thinks about her, but even more so at this time of year, so we thought why not honor her life with a Gah!! PINK!! challenge?

If you knew her, she really hated the color pink. So much that on those rare occasions where she needed to use said color, she always, always referred to it as Gah!! PINK!!

So that is your challenge: use the color Gah!! PINK!! on your card or project. You are welcome
to use other colors, just make sure pink features predominately.

Here's what the Design Team came up with:

Barbara

Chris

Lauren

Deena

Cyndi

Mimi

Maria

Donna


Please note: This will be a two week challenge, as the Design Team will be taking the rest of the
year off to be with family and friends for the holidays.

As always, we would love for you to join our crew and play along.
