Just Magnolia Monthly Challenge

Hi there, well it is the end of the week .... day 2 of the wonderful craft show at the NEC and only 1 day until I get to go and meet loads of the gorgeous ladies that make up part of the Just Magnolia Design Team ..... more later, lol.
Onto our challenge and can you believe it is time for our monthly challenge once again. We are so lucky to have Simon Says Stamp as our regular sponsor and one lucky person will win $50 to spend at the online store - isn't that just incredible! So if you fancy having a chance of winning you need to enter this challenge. Chris Dark of Sketching Stamper agreed to be our featured stamper and has done an amazing tutorial for us which you can view here .... so come on .... let's see you get


Now as you know I am rather challenged when it comes to ripping up my papers and I do just hate it, lol .... but in the true spirit I popped out and even bought a distressing tool. The soft grip handle gave me no comfort during this heartbreaking challenge (slight overkill pulling on your heart strings, lol) but now I look at my card I realised I was more distressed than I first realised. OMG I have DESTROYED my papers good and proper - oh well in for a penny in for a pound as they say!

I am quite proud I managed to survive the experience and I just love all the gorgeous cards the DT members and Chris made. I think I will never feel really at home distressing but it was fun and I did get to buy something new which is always a bonus, rofl.

So I will love you and leave you for now but please, please come and say hello to me tomorrow afternoon at the Magnolia stand - it would be great to finally meet so many of you. I am off to check if the final girlie who is demoing has announced it on her blog yet and then I will be back to blurt it out to you all (I have done so well not telling, haha)
See you soon xxxx
