Just Magnolia Challenge

Week 25 - Special Monthly Challenge - Flowers

Following on from the tutorial that was posted yesterday On Just Magnolia Challenge, we are having a special challenge this week based around the tutorial. If you don’t have the die (none of the DT did) please don’t worry – all we ask is that your creation has hand made flowers, cut with a die, or punched or even cut out by hand. This Special Monthly Challenge is sponsored by Simon Says Stamp, and the prize is a $50 voucher to spend in their shop on anything that takes your fancy.

Firstly I must apologise for my lack of blogging this week, I came home from Ally Pally with not only lots of bags of crafty goodies (OMG I was very naughty!!), but also managed to pick up a really rotten bug, I didn't manage to climb out of my pit until 4pm yesterday afternoon and hadn't turned on the PC since last Friday so I have lots of catching up and thanking to do today. Anyway Ally Pally was fabulous it was so nice to see so many of the lovely friends I have made this last year, it didn't feel as if I was talking to people I had never met before I felt I knew you all, I just wish I had more time to talk to all of you, I would like to say a special thank you to Christine, Jo, Kim, Caz, Debby, Marlene, Bev and Rach for making the whole weekend two days to remember.

Well down to this weeks card, I didn't have the dies that Michele used on her fabulous Tutorial so I searched the web for some ideas and found this fantastic tutorial for a lovely and easy rose, just click Here, if you would like to have a go at the rose.

This cute Tilda is another from the New Yummy Tummy Release, she reminds me of the little girls in the books my Mum used to read to me when I was very young. The papers are again from Nannas Nursery (this pad is almost finished now and I will really must go and order some more it has been my most used pad this year). Tilda has been coloured with Distress Inks as usual, although it doesn't show very well the flower was made with light pink card and has been sprayed with Pearl Glimmer Mist and I have added a couple of drops of glaze to appear like dewdrops. The Pearl pins were made by myself with some beads from my stash added to long stemmed Bridal Pins.

I have two bits of news to tell you about today, Whiff of Joy Challenge will be having a blog hop tomorrow starting from the Challenge home page at 10 am (GMT), there will be lots of candy on offer on the way around the blog hop and something extra special for one lucky winner so don't forget to join us.

The other piece of news is about a brand new stamp company that has been started by my very good friend Nikki from Bunny Zoes has joined forces with the lovely Lacey Stephens from across the Atlantic Ocean to create their own Stamp Company Wags 'n Whiskers Rubber Stamps

These gorgeous images are of Nikki and Laceys children and pets and are brought to life by the super talented artist Crissy Armstrong!!

Pre-orders will begin in the UK on Bunny Zoes Crafts website on October 9th!!!! Be sure to keep up with latest news, sneak peaks, guest call and blog hop info by going over to visit the Company Blog. One lucky person will win the full release too!

Phew that was a long one, hope to see you for the blog hop tomorrow.

Thanks for looking
Jacqui xx
