Woohoooo.... I must be the happiest girl in blogland right now... I am thrilled to be on the Simply Magnolia DT. Thanks so much to all my lovely blogfriends who left me congratulatory messages, I value your support so much.
For those of of you who don't know, our challenges are bi-weekly and we'd like YOU to make a Birthday Card, using a Magnolia image of course. I really hope you'll feel inspired to join in the FUN, as there are wonderful prizes to be won. Our sponsor for this challenge is De Egel Kaartenmakerij. The prizes shouldn't be your only incentive to enter though, think how many new Maggie-lover friends you'll be meeting. For me, that's the most exciting part!
For my first DT card I've used Tilda with Balloon. I've gone for the distressed look which I'm really into right now. I hope you like it!
I was thrilled to receive my new Postage Sentiment stamps from Whimsy Stamps... isn't this one on the left just too gorgeous??? The sentiment on the bottom right is from LOTV. The flowers are from my stash. The image was kindly stamped for me by a dear friend in Belgium, thanks Lins. Plain cardstock is Bazill purchased from my favourite local store The Scrapbook Shop in Bellville. Estelle is the Manageress and she's a honey ! Visiting the store is NEVER a 5 minute affair, as Estelle loves to chat...LOL. The pink satin ribbon is new - I bought it in 2 sizes and whole rolls of it! The lovely scalloped card was purchased from Creative Treasures - love them!
Wishing you all a FABULOUS crafting weekend. I hope to see your name on our list of entrants.
[Edit: It appears that the challenge date and day on our DT blog did not coincide, apologies for that. My post is therefore a day early. Please pop around to the SM challenge blog tomorrow as challenges run bi-weekly on Sundays. The positive is that you have a whole day in advance to think about what you'll be making for the challenge...hehe]
