HSS Think Pink! Challenge #88

This week we' re reminding you that October is Breast Cancer Awareness month and for this challenge we want you to Think Pink! Create a project using pink. Early detection is the key. Be proactive.

  • Use keyword HSSTP when uploading to public galleries.

  • Incorrect links are not eligible and will be deleted.
  • INLINKZ will close at noon (CST) Monday, October, 17th
  • Artist Picks will be announced on Tuesday, October 18th
  • Join us for a new challenge every Tuesday. 
Sadly we say goodbye to Anne Marie Hile.  She has recently accepted a work position that has her very busy.  We here at HSS want to thank her for sharing her amazing talent with us and wish her all the best. 

This week we also welcome Rachel Ricks to the design team.  We're so glad she's sharing her creativity with us.  You can see more of her wonderful projects on her blog.

Here's a little about Rachel in her own words.

"Arts and crafts has always been my thing. I started scrap booking not long after my first child was born. That's over 14 years now! A few years after that a friend invited me to a stamp party and I was hooked. I've been an Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator for almost 3 years now. I have a wonderful time sharing creativity with others at parties, club meetings, and on my blog! Lucky for me, my husband is very patient and supports me in all I do; even if it is spending too much time and money scrap booking, stamping, crafting, or what ever new project I've added to the to-do list. I'm mother to four children and step-mom to one pretty cool teenager (19 is still a teenager!) We just recently started homeschooling which really keeps me busy, but we enjoy it!  My life gets crazy, but I wouldn't change a thing. As long as I can get some crafty time in, I think I'll keep my sanity.
I love challenges! When I find time to sit down at my craft desk I get lost in all the ideas and supplies. I don't know where to begin. Challenges inspire me, give me somewhere to start, and a focus for my creativity. Which is one reason I'm so excited I was invited to be a part of the Hand Stamped Sentiments Design Team! I get to play along with a new, fun challenge each week!"
