Hi!! And welcome to the Magnolia Down Under Challenges
SECOND BIRTHDAY BLOG HOP
We are all really excited to be having this hop. It has been a fabulous two years at Magnolia Down Under Challenges and we are thrilled to be celebrating our second birthday! We have two amazing Guests joining us this week as well - Jodie and Stephanne. They are both long time members of the Design Team and have returned to help us celebrate - thank you so much girls, it means so much to us to have you join us!
It is also really exciting that we have TWO original Design Team members still with us to celebrate our second birthday - both Debbie P and Kristy were part of the original Design Team. It is a huge achievement to have them both still with us. Kellie was also intending to join us for our hop but she unfortunately has come down with an illness and has had to pull out. Hope you are feeling better soon Kel!
We have four amazing sponsors lined up this week, and the challenge is "twos" so any combination of two things on your entry and you are in for a chance to win some goodies! There are also little candies along the hop from various Design Team members.
I also want to take this moment to thank every single member of the Magnolia Down Under Challenges Design Team - we are so very lucky to have such a fantastic group of talented, gorgeous girls. You make our challenge run like clockwork and your weekly dose of creativity is such an inspiration - not just to those playing along with the challenge, but to myself as well. You are truly a DT to be proud of and I am very lucky to call you all my friends.
You should have arrived here from KRISTY'S blog... but if you didn't, you may llike to start the hop at the very beginning at ANNE'S blog.
For my card...I have used two images, two sheets of gorgeous Pion Design papers (a gift from my gorgeous friend Louise), both sides, two cherry blossoms, two asters, two rows of hearts.... umm...lol, I think that will do!
The stamps are "Tilda with Hanging Rabbit" from the new Butterfly Dreams collection and also the Spring Fence from the Hoppy Easter collection 2010.
Check out the amazing papers!!
I've coloured the images with Copics, and I was lucky enough to get a set of the 12 new colours and have had a ball using some of them on my card. The new E 81 and E87 are fantastic earthy green/brown tones and I've used them on the fence along with my favourite earth tones. The new BG 70 I used for the sky.
And just one more photo for fun :)
And here is a photo of my candy that is up for grabs... Just leave me a comment by next Saturday 19 March to win this little prize. The winner will be announced here on my blog but also on the Magnolia Down Under Challenges blog next week.
The next stop on the hop is the amazing SHARON!! I am sure she has something beautiful to share with you. And if you get lost along the way, just stop by the Magnolia Down Under Challenges blog to see who was next.
Thank you so much for joining us on our very special 2nd birthday hop! Have a great time checking out everyone's work and don't forget to enter the challenge!
Hugs, Kylie xx
