Good morning, well it is Friday and that means time for fun with Just Magnolia BUT ...... we have decided to make the first Friday of the month our Monthly Challenge. We have merged our other blog with the weekly challenge blog to help us all from getting confused. So you have a month to take part in this challenge and we will also be back next week with our usual weekly challenge.... hope I am making sense, lol.
The monthly challenge is to make your own hand made flowers. There is a wonderful tutorial by Michelle on the blog for you to follow but you can make any type of flower you want to. Please have a look at all the DTs cards for ideas and inspiration - they have all produced such lovely cards and flowers. The prize this month is a whopping $50 gift certifcate by the lovely Heidi from Simon Says Stamp .... thankyou so much for the generous prize hun!
So here are my flowers - all made with various punches and secured with a brad in the centre. I was inspired by a card by the talented Marlene (will link up later cos computer being silly again). I am surprised how well they turned out and I am going to have to remember these for future cards. How many times do you not have the right coloured flower (even with the zillions of flowers we all have). Not a problem any more - just get punching from the backing paper - genius! I have followed a sketch this week ... details will be on later, lol.
I can't go without a closer look at gorgeous little Tilda - I still adore this image so much and I know that a certain lady at work does too. She curses me because she always has to buy cards with her on even when she doesn't need them, lol .... think she is a Magnolia addict too.
On a final note I have woken up to 2 bits of lovely news .... I have made the top 5 on Stamp Something from last weeks challenge (thanks girlies) and I have won Terry's candy too!!!!
