Happy New Year to all the Pink Saturday gang!

We had an amazing Christmas and New Year, nice and quiet, just the way we like it, with piles of DVDs and plenty of chocolate, cake, trifle etc to keep us going. I have definitely gone up a dress size! Plus, we're knee deep in snow over here - very unusual for London!

So I thought I'd cheer everyone up with a nice bright Blogger background, for anyone who'd like to use it. It's a Stretch Minima template but can of course be used for a 3-column or 2-column blog.

Copy all the code and insert into an html/javacode box.

<style type="text/css">
body {background-image: url(""); background-position: center; background-repeat: no-repeat; background-attachment: fixed; }
<div id="tag" style="position:absolute; left:0px; top:50px; z-index:50; width:150px; height:30px;">
<a href="" target="_blank">
<img border="0" src=""/>

Here's the matching header - copy to your own computer, then install it.

Full instructions on how to install the background are here, and here is how to apply the header.

If you'd like more pink backgrounds, here is a link to an earlier post with a background and two headers.

And now, I'd like to introduce a favourite blog: Just Something I Made. She's amazing; phenomal - go and see for yourself!

Finally, don't forget to visit Beverly's site - How Sweet the Sound - to see the rest of the Pink Saturday post and read all about their Christmas memories.

    It's so nice all of it... I just send you a question to be my friend on facebook!
    Hugs from Inger Bente:)

  6. Happy Pink Saturday, Susie. The snow must be so pretty, but be sure to stay safe and warm.

    You were so nice to share, and it is so pretty. Thank you for the link to Cathe.

  7. This is a lovely background. I have looked high and low for a soft red and white polka dot stretch for my blog..can't find it, tho. I am using a yellow and white polka dot now and like it ok. Just would like something different.
    Have a Happy Pink Saturday
    O and I meant to say that I got a little laugh at a comment you left at BackYard Neighbor where you mentioned HOT PANTS...hahaaa, hadn't thought of that name in years!!

  8. Oh Susie, I have had my same background for ever since I started!! I change all the little sidebar graphics all the time , but taking that step to change the background?!.. WHAT?!! (0; I've said it before.. I've got a little of that anti-change thing about me. Have you noticed?... So, I'm thinking, as we start a new year, and as my blogiversary approaches, MAYBE I'll try one of these new backgrounds sometime soon. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE yours!! It's VERY pretty, but it is STILL PINK!.. So I guess it feels a little safer! (giggles) Happy Pink Saturday, and have a wonderful weekend! Stay warm! ((hugs)) ~tina

  9. Lovely background! Hope your Sat is full of pink fun.

    Good morning Susie and hope you are staying warm. Don't worry, sping will be here in it's time and we will all be out celebrating. Our weather is not bad right now in the desert, this is a great time for us, not so much in the summer heat. I guess you could say we are backwards from the rest of the world. Hard to understand unless you live here and then it's still hard to get. Thankyou so much for the graphics, beautiful, Happy Pink Saturday, Char

    OoHHHH Susie - it's chilly in your flat today! lol And I thought it was cold in Central Texas!
    I love the stretch minima template. The ONLY ones I could find were the few on CBOB when I was looking this week. I really need to learn how to make my own. I just switched to a stretch because it allows me to upload larger pics from Writer. So thanks a bunch! Happy Pink Saturday...:)Nancy
