It's Pink Saturday again! Hurrah! My weather is sunny and my outlook is fine: I've had a phenomenal week! 

I just got three blog awards from darling CC from Lace'n'Ribbon Roses (see the next post below) and I just got my 300th follower - Kathleen from Shiraz and French Blue (who has a site with jewellery To Die For - official!)

So, to celebrate I've made a new background and header set (pink of course) which I'm calling A Kiss From A Rose.

If you would like to use these on your blog, go here to download the codes.

Here's the latest background I finished - for Joey Ledlie at Antiquemajik, which is my Blog of the Week.

Joey has just joined the Pink Saturday gang, and although it's new, it's a fascinating blog already. She makes dolls, fridge magnets (I have one!) her own soaps, perfumes, all sorts of goodies! Go take a look.

    I think it's a perfect name and I like the sound of it too :-)

    I also like Joey's blue background - kinda like watercolor effect :-)

    Happy Pink Saturday!

    dottydot - Wordpress is the WORST to try and customise. However, I've opened another WordPress blog as I am determined to crack the problem. There must be a way without having to spend around £200 on a customisable template!

  5. Gorgeous background Susie, i love the title too. Hope you are doing well my friend
    hugs June xxxxx

  6. Its fabolous. I like it.

    Happy Pink Saturday! Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment on my blog. I've been sandwiched between blogs - coming from one, reading about another, go to another. All talking about one-another. Small world! I had visited Joey earlier and liked her background. One of these days I'll figure out how to do backgrounds - looks like a lot of fun, which your background appears to have been "fun". Enjoyed my visit. THanks! Jenn

    Happy Pink Saturday. Too funny...I started the day by listening to Jack Black sing Kiss from a Rose and here I am visiting your blog now.
    Your version is much prettier!

  20. I've been hunting for a new pink template- I should hire you to design an original for me!

    Sorry for being here so late today- my son is at the prom and we spent all day getting ready... and who said boys were low maintenance? haha!

    Have a super week!

    I saw that blog template you created and it is darling! You are sooooo creative! If you have a chance stop by I am giving away a free teapot for the month of April!Hugs,

  27. You always design the cutest things Susie - congrats. on the awards which you certainly are due.

    Hey, why is there no spell check available on Blogger in Draft? It's really annoying.....good thing I had a good English teacher at Torquay Girls' Grammar - I think I spell pretty good, lol!

    Wishing you another awesome week Susie.

  28. Bunny, THE PARIS HOUSE19 April 2010 at 15:55

    You have a lovely blog, thanks so much for your visit.

  29. Susie Jefferson19 April 2010 at 16:10

    Mary - I have no idea why Blogger hasn't got the spell check... I think it'll be coming back as there are so many complaints, so give it a little time. Meantime, there's LiveWriter which does have a spell check. Or I guess we'll just have to resort to the good old dictionary.

  30. Susie...I haven't been to visit you for PS! Time is flying!!! I am so glad you had a wonderful week. Still working on the house, but it will come to an end for a bit and be somewhat ready to show, and show we will, at the end of next week. Recommended you to Maggie. Hope your air is clear and congratulations on 300 followers!!!

  31. Cool!! I just switched to this style!!! Thanks! Congrats on your awards and your followers! I love having you as a go to for my blog stuff!!
    Hugs, Lisa
