MDUC - 6th Birthday and farewell

Hello friends, 
I am here today to share with you a card I made for MDUC.
It is our 6th birthday today. It is also our farewell. 


MDUC was started in March 2009 by my friend Kellie , (although, we weren't yet friends) and with Debbie and Kristy, she built up a little challenge blog called Magnolia Down Under Challenges. Magnolia stamps were relatively new to Australia so it seemed like a great way to share the versatility and fun of these adorable stamps. 

Only a year later I joined the DT. It was an extremely exciting time and I was overwhelmed. I had only a few Magnolia stamps but was ready to acquire more! Karen  joined soon after.

After Kellie moved on to run her own stamp business, Debbie and I took over as the new owners of the blog, asking Karen to share in the fun with us.   It has been a fun 5 years and MDUC is something that we are so very proud of. 

Thanks to MDUC, we have made many special friends around the world. Our Design Team is an amazing group of women - both super talented and beautiful friends. 
Without these women we wouldn't have been able to bring you the challenges. 

However, the time has come and we need to move on. The dedication to the challenge over the years can't continue as our families grow. It is time to move on to other things. Our families need us. 
It is with great sadness that we close the  MDUC blog.

Please join us in celebrating 6 years of challenges by playing along in our last ever challenge. 


I used three Tilda's with balloons for my card. I've hand cut a cloud shape and folded an easel card to adhere it to. All three Tilda's are coloured in Copics. 


The beautiful embellishments are all from The Ribbon Girls.



A little side view :) 


Lots of Doo Hickeys used as well


Thanks for visiting me today. Please stop by the MDUC blog and see the amazing work of our DT. Pay them a visit and say goodbye. 

Thank you to Karen and Debbie for everything you've done for me - both challenge wise and as friends. You ladies are the best xxxxx
