Last but not least this card is for Mothermark's TEAPOT TUESDAY CHALLENGE #75:http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/fo...d.php?t=474521
I am tickled pink to visit Miss Kitty in Dodge City. I am bringing my beautiful Flamingo "PINKIE" thinking that a flamingo in her front yard will draw lots of attention meaning visitors. There's bound to be some hunky prospects among those curious looky loos. That's my plan anyway.

Wowza, this is so fabulous in pink, Lisa! Fabulous design and papers. ooooh, this here is one outstanding card. So happy you're planning on joining our contingency in September. I think One4Joy will also be coming. Before you know it, we'll have to reserve the Convention center for all of us.

I've heard of pubs with peacocks, so I guess why not a saloon with a flamingo. I've never heard one, but I bet they can't sound as bad as peacocks do. Not quite such pretty feathers, but I am sure the *ladies* who frequent the saloon will still manage to use up any that are shed. If Miss Kitty hasn't collected them all up first for a new fan. Love your pink and fantastic punched border.

Well, I am also tickled pink you were able to come to the Tea Party this week! What a fun image and card! I have never known a rugged, hard-working, macho, good looking cowboy to not be attracted to pink flamingos! What a great idea you had to bring them all together in one spot for Miss Kitty's benefit! Snort!
Love this card Lisa! it could not have been made in a more perfect color. That image reminds me of a couple I have seen in some neighborhoods! Snort!
And once again, thank you so much for hosting for me....your Teapot Tuesday challenge was so creative and fun and I appreciate it so much! Thank you!!

Lisa -- I love this Pink Flamingo -- I can stand and look at them for ages at the zoo -- was so amazed when I found out they turn pink because of what they eat -- they are born white ...
Anywho -- your idea of having one in Miss Kitty's garden is a fantastic idea - I am sure there will be lots of stray fellas having a look ...
