Post Number 500, A Little Girl Bunny,And A Giveaway!


Today's Post marks a small but exciting milestone here on InkingPink, Post number 500!!!! Thank you for giving me the encouragement each day to keep on "keepin' on!"



When I created this little cutie I had no idea she would end up the star of my fifth hundredth post, but fate decided that for her as it would seem! I could get all sentimental and gooey about how much I love having a blog, and how blessed I feel that anyone takes the time to looks at it, read it, and share it with others, how amazing it is to meet and become friends with those people both online and in person, I could tell you that this little blog led to circumstances that changed my life forever, that molded me into a better version of myself and opened a path to self discovery, and opportunity. I could gush on and on about how often your comments make me smile, cry, or beam with pride, how much you all mean to me, and how often I wish we could all go and have lunch and chat.....but I will keep it lighthearted and just say how stunned I am that I have posted 500 projects!!!




This girl Bunny Rabbit is from the Stampin' Up! Springtime smiles set, she was stamped with momento ink and colored with copics and prisma pencils, the papers are all from Pink Paislee, and the embossing folder is called Kimberlys card. Now I know you really want to hear about the giveaway...because I can't, simply can not have a celebration without a present!


One winner will get this basket of goodies including: All provided by provocraft!
Mothers Day bouquet cartridge
Hello Kitty Font cartridge
Pink gypsy sleeve
and distressed vine embossing folder

To enter the giveaway, make sure to be an InkingPink follower, leave a comment on this post telling me what your favorite Easter candy is and why! I will go first, I LOVE and I do mean I seriously drool when I think about them LOVE the robins eggs! candy coated malted milk ball eggs....my favorite thing to do is munch on those with an ice cold drink, the candy shell gets all crisp and the malt section dissolves...mmmmmmmmm so good!

I absolutely love the Cadbury mini eggs. Don't get me wrong, I love the big eggs too, but I love that sweet candy coating on the mini ones sooooo much. I even have a recipe for Cadbury mini egg cookies. Yum!!

A HUGE congratulations on 500 posts!!! Favorite Easter candy - easy! Cadbury eggs!!! Ugh. Love them! What a fantastic achievement. The bunny is so sweet and the giveaway is SO fantastic! Thank you so much for your generosity and kindness! I love reading your posts! Here's to 500 more!

Hrvatica said...

Congrats on the milestone. 500 posts is a wonderful accomplishment. Your card is adorable. My favorite Easter candy is Cadbury Popping Mini Eggs - there is something about the combination of popping candy and chocolate that I can't resist.

Beth said...

congrats on your 500th post! My favorite Easter candy has to be cadbury cream eggs. I'm sad this year I couldn't find the orange ones anywhere those are my very favorite but the original ones are a close second.

500 posts! That's fabulous and definitely worthy of celebration! This is such a cute card too...I love how you added the doily! My favorite Easter candy is definitely jelly beans. I must say that I eat jelly beans year round, but I LOVE this time of year because there are so many choices/flavors/kinds available.

Cheryl Winget said...

Congrats on reaching that amazing milestone! 500 is a BIG number in my book! Your little girl bunny card is so sweet. But I bet she doesn't like my favorite Easter candy - dark (as dark as possible) hollow bunnies. I LOVE dark chocolate and I especially like biting those ears off. Yikes - I hope it's not painful to those delicious bunnies!! LOL

neddgirl said...

Congratulations on 500 posts! I am a follower. My favorite Easter candy would be the Gold Brick egg of my youth. It was made with real milk chocolate and roasted pecans. I would bite a piece and let the chocolate melt in my mouth to reveal all of the pecan pieces. Those pecans were the best and I saved them for last because they were my favorite.

This is a fun question. My most favorite Easter candy is the little chocolate covered marshmallow eggs that come in the little egg cartons.

jrugg said...

I am a follower and congrats on the 500 posts-love all of them. My favorite candy is also the robin eggs, when we were little we would lick them and then put them on our lips like lipstick-oh good times!

char said...

Shantaie,
Congrats on your 500th project post! As an absentee (sob) hen, I will speak for the entire clutch, and tell you that we never once doubted your success with the blog, and whatever creative endeavor you set your sights on. Hugs, Char

And...just for yuks, favorite Easter treat of all time...Chick O'Sticks, what a weird marriage of peanut butter and coconut, like a butterfinger without the (gasp) chocolate....

Lynn B. said...

Congratulations on your 500! I used like the egg malt balls but now they give me a headache (boo!). I think it's probably Starburst Jelly Beans now.

Cindy said...

Cute,girly bunny card! My favorite Easter candy is the mini chocolate eggs with the crunchy butterfinger bits...Yum :-)

Ohhh Snap said...

Congratulations on 500 projects!! I love that you have a blog too lol. So much inspiration! And I love this card, that bunny is just tooooo cute :D.

My favorite easter candy is plain jelly beans, brach's no-frills, no fancy flavors. I'm also very partial to making deviled eggs out of the leftover eggs!

flowerdisco said...

frou frou, you are one of my inspirations. i love your work and is not for me to say but i know a lot who loves it too. i am glad i got to meet you through cricut. thanks for the opportunity and lets hope for 500x100+ more, :D
congrats!

flowerdisco said...

oh you see, i got caught up here and forgot to mention that my fav easter candy are the cadbury eggs because i love the melted caramel drooping out of my mouth...oh god they are so yummy! :P

JerilynnO said...

My favorite Easter candy memory was the fruit and nut eggs. The Easter Bunny would leave one every Easter. I don't see those in the store any more except at See's candy stores but those aren't the same as the ones that were sold in the drug stores. My second favorite Easter candy are the black jelly beans. My brothers and sisters used to fight over who got the black jelly beans in the bag as they used to only put two or three in an entire bag. Love the black licorice! Now you can get an entire bag of just the black beans. Yum! Congrats on hitting the big 5-0-0!

Amy E said...

Congrats on 500 posts! That's incredible!!

I am officially being a good girl this year..I went on a serious diet about 3 weeks ago and haven't had one single slip up. So, for this year and years to come, my favorite Easter treat is strawberries! YUM!!!

Diane Hodrick said...

Congrats on the 500 milestone! Wow! Your creativity is alive and well with no signs of slowing down. Yay for us! My favorite Easter candy is Dove's silky smooth milk chocolate eggs. They melt as soon as they touch your tongue. Now, I want some for breakfast.....

Sara Andrews said...

Those are my favorite too!! My mom buys them for the church Easter egg hunt and I get ALL the leftovers.

So you know what that means~ a tummy ache!! They are perfect with a Diet Coke.

Congrats!

Congrats on the 500!! I love all you things and you have given me such wonderful ideas and inspiration! This Bunny card is no exception, she is just so cute...she reminds me of Ruby from the Max and Ruby tv cartoon that my graddaughter used to watch. Thanks for the wonderful giveaway! I simply love the Cadbury Eggs...all that gooy stuff in the middle and the so very yummy chocolate! I'm glad that you can buy just one at a time, otherwise if I had a bag I could seriously eat the whole bag full in one day! Thanks again for the great giveaway!!

Robin eggs are my absolute favorite. Ever since I was little, I put those white eggs in my mouth and see how long I can such on them until I break down and bite into that malted milk center.
