Just Magnolia's First Challenge
Just magnolia Challenge
Well the day the whole Dt have been waiting for has finally arrived and what a great challenge we have for you, our very own Donalda has created one of her fabulous sketches for us. The DT cards are awesome and we have a HUGE!!! Prize so please come and join us for our first challenge, the only rule is there must be at least 1 Magnolia stamp on your creation, we have no problems with you combining Challenges.
We are hoping that Just Magnolia will become more than just a challenge blog and we have tutorials by some fabulous crafters planned and also some extra little challenges so why not click Here and read all about it.
I have been so looking forward to our first challenge but I very nearly didn't have a card for it, not only am I tied up with the commission I am working on but Mum had an accident last week and has needed extra attention, so today after taking her to the hospital I had a non-crafting Me Day and met some of my old colleagues for lunch which turned into a marathon, I didn't get home until nearly 5 o'clock, and I hadn't even started on my card. I didn't realise how much I needed this break but really feel raring to go now.
I really wanted to produce a stunning card for this challenge, but ended up making a card I am not entirely happy with, I rushed my colouring and really should have binned this one and done it again, but time run out.
I am pleased with the inside though. lol!!!
