Spreading the word........

My cyber pal Anne emailed me earlier this week spreading the word about a new Magnolia challenge blog called Mid-week magnolias. They are looking for DT members and I just know lots of you out there just love your Magnolias.
So in a bid to help the search go far and wide I had a little play with a project I am doing with some pals at the weekend. We will be using Molly Blooms stamps but I thought I would practice with my nautical Tilda and Edwin stamps who do get sadly neglected but are such a delight to colour in.
Papers are by basic grey - a very old set from 3 years ago. Punch is by Martha Stewart Thanks so much Christine - I love it!
A little glossy accents and ribbon and buttons from stash.
Now there are more things to share about this project but I will wait until Sunday to give you them all - I need to keep them a surprise until after Saturday!
So where do you find the info re the New Magnolia Challenge? Do stop by Annes blog here click to be a follower and I promise her projects will delight and inspire you.
I would like to enter this in The pretty little ribbon shop challenge which is anything goes
Totally Tilda where Tilda must be wearing a hat
the Magnolialicious challenge which is blue and brown
and the paperlane challenge which has to be inspired by a book - mine is Enid Blytons
The secret of Spiggy Holes! A book about the adventures of the fab 4 on holiday at a little seaside town. The Paperlane is incidently the rendezvous for my crafty pals meet up!
Have a great day xx
