Fur or Feathers Challenge at As You Like It

Its Thursday and I have some fun and exciting news to share
Firstly I have to share that I have a new fur baby
I can not be long without a fur baby to cuddle...
 I do have 2 Adult male Guinea pigs but that are brothers and don't like cuddles
Meet Pippin but we are calling her Pip as she is sooooo small

Now I also have some quite scary news too!
 am going to a wedding in a couple of weeks and had to go shopping
    as the only wedding outfit I have is now far to big... as it is a size 18 dress.... I went shopping Bank Holiday Monday and after several hours of looking and trying I found the perfect dress.. YAY!
    Size 12!! yippeee!
    But here is the scary news...!
    I also tried on about 7 shawl cardigans 6 were ones I had picked up because of the colours... blue, purple, cream, lime, red, yellow... all of which looked ok but not perfect with the dress.. so the very kind (or so I thought) sales assistant offered to go get 2 more which I must of missed....!
    they were both PINK!!!!!!!!!!!!!! ARGH!
    one Bright pink and I was not EVEN gonna try!!!
    the other I hovered over pondering the risk... Ok so I will try but I am not getting it just curious to see what it looked like.. trying to tell myself its ok I am not gonna like it anyway...
    the Scary part was I was drawn to saying I quite like it and upon showing my husband the dress and cardigan he loved both and said he would buy them for me as they were the perfect combo!
    OMG!!!!!!!!!! me in pink! WHAT?

    I think I must be ill...
    and the card I have made is blinking pink too! 

    what is even more scary is I have to buy shoes and a bag to match!
    hugs me xx


    1. You do realize we will actually need to see the "pink" evidence Samantha!! Pip looks adorable, so too your lovely card xx

    2. Oh that guinea pig is just so cute and my puppy thinks she has an awesome name, well she would do as her name is Pippin Ella & yep we call her Pip!!!
      Before I forget, the card is lovely too.

    3. Awwww Pip is adorable. So cute. And so teeny!
      So proud of you both because of the size 12 but also more crucially the pink!!! I'll bet you look lovely. See, the shop assistant was right!! :0)
      Love your PINK card honey, hmm, did I mention that I love the PINK, or would that be rubbing it in? That PINK cupcake looks lovely, and the PINK sprinkles on it. :0)

    4. Hi there Samantha, hope you are well Hun. Love the little guinea pig, very cute. My grandson has a female guinea pig called Wilson. He did have two, the other was called Buster, (I know lol! very confusing as they are boy's names and they were girls !! ) Buster wasn't well shortly after he got her and she went to heaven bless her. Anyway, onto your creation, I love this card and the pink pearls you have put on the top of the cake look fabulous.
      Hugs Jennifer xx
