Happy Pink Saturday Pinkettes! Hope everyone is doing well and recovering from all the Easter festivities!

Now fess up...who had a Cadbury Egg overload? ha!

Please don't get defensive...I have a confession. For me, something about those make me a bit, queasy. I just can't connect with it's sweet chocolately goodness when the inside looks like this....

Just seeing that photo makes me feel.... and those of you who had one cad too many! LOL!

I know, me bad! Oodles and oodles of peeps love them, including my beautiful daughter and my handsome son, aka Monkey Head Fred.

I'm sure you KNOW I'm just stalling and I KNOW some of you anxious peeps have scrolled ahead to see who won. ha!

I truly wish I could surprise each of you like Oprah..."everyone look under your keyboard...!" But I can't.

I do want to give a big huge thank you to all who entered, and major big smoochies to you darlings who tweeted and posted and helped spread the word about my giveaway!

You are all so special to me!

I completed the tallying, adding the tweets, postings and side bar announcements of the giveaway and the final number came to 205. I put it into the thingy...

....random number 65.....and is that portion of the list....

I'm so thrilled to announce that the wonderful and charming Sarah @ Hyacinths for the Soul is the winner of the $50.00 Target Stores gift card!

Sarah, email me at and give me your snail mail digits so I can get send your gift to you ASAP! Congratulations and happy shopping GF!

I'm going to have another one in a few months as I am approaching my 100th post (this one is 79) and near the end of May will be my 1 year stay tuned! ;)

Again, thank you to all the lovely friend who have joined in on my madness! I love you all!

DON'T DASH OFF YET! Most of you know the incredibly talented Rebecca at A Gathering of Thoughts. Well, she had this fabulous "Guess Who.." contest a couple of weeks ago (view here). She's related to someone famous and we had to figure out who that is... and guess who won...


I won a set of absolutely stunning card created by Rebecca! Here are a few...

and they each came with matching tags! *happy dance*

These are as beautiful as her blog! Be sure you stop over and visit her if you haven't already! (click on her button for the express to her pinkalicious blog!)

Thank you so much Rebecca, you are so creative and talented! I will cherish these!

Last, but most certainly not least, a huge thank you to our fabulous Beverly of HowSweet the Sound for Pink Saturday! Thanks so very much for all your hard work Beverly!

Love the French Patisserie one . . . scones, petit fours, crepes, and the Eiffel Tower. Doesn't get much better! LOL
Thanks again. I'll send you an email tonight.

Tina-What a cute and creative post! I must admit I am not a Cadbury or a peep fan--more the Reese's peanut butter egg type :) I know Sarah is a happy winner! Great giveaway!

Happy Pink Saturday Tina...
Love your post sweetie. Congrats to Sara, how exciting for her. Wonderful shopping is in store I would say. Love to shop.

Cadbury eggs are just the best. I can't eat just one, so I don't eat any. They have the sweetest taste of all. I will tell you sweetie, just close your eyes and eat away, and your tastebuds will come to life. All of my kids are hooked on these things, and have been since they were kids. The Easter Bunny still brings them their Cadbury eggs. How fun is that?

I love the cards you received in Rebecca's win. Congratulations sweetie, what a beautiful thing to win from a gorgeous lady.

Have a beautiful Sunday sweetie. Please know that you are so loved. Country hugs...Sherry

Doni said...

AWWWW!!!! I was the one just UNDER her!!! Congrats anyway Sarah!!! Love your new cards Sherry, they're gorgeous!
And now please please tell me how on earth you created that gorgeous header?? I want to make a collage with my photos like that!!!

Doni said...

I MEAN TINA!!!! Good night, I take my eyes off of what I'm doin' for one whole second and faux paux all over the place!!!

Petite moi said...

Those cards are soooooo very beautiful and FRENCH, I love them!
Happy Pink Saturday to you too Tina, thanks so much for stopping by.
Hugs, Erika

Susie Jefferson said...

My goodness! Congratulations to Sarah and congratulations to YOU! How fabulous! I don't know which card I like the most, they are all gorgeous. Happy Pink Saturday sweetie!

Mary Beth @ Live. Laugh. Make Something said...

Candy said...

I can say I didn't have even one Cadbury Egg...if I don't buy them, I won't eat them.
