Magnolia Down Under Challenges 1st Birthday Bash CANDY Blog Hop...

Hello there Magnolia Lovers and Welcome to the 1st Birthday Blog Hop for Magnolia Down Under Challenges....!!

We are so excited and thrilled to become 1! Who knew that when Magnolia Down Under Challenges started with only 3 members it would be bigger and better a year on. We are all SO EXCITED that we have decided to do a birthday blog hop and whats better is that all the DT are offering CANDY! To be eligible you have to hop on to each Design Team Member and leave them some comment lovin affection ;) Winners will be announced on Magnolia Down Under Challenges Blog at the end of the challenge and also on the personal DT blogs on whom won their candy.

If you've just happened across my blog and didn't start at the beginning click HERE.... But if you have come from ........... Tanja's blog than you are well on your hop...

Here is my creation for the Blog Hop. This is something I haven't tried before and I loved doing it. All the stamps used on this card were purchased from Magnolia Down Under - the first two from the So Jolly and Under the Mistletoe Collection and the other from Raising the Ceiling. I love them all. I had to use my new MME Quite Contrary DP and the Gardenia can be purchased from MDU as well.





In wonderful blogland style here is my candy for the Birthday Blog Hop. You will get the card I made for the challenge, Sweet Tilda stamp, 1metre of lace ribbon and 5 lots of 5 different coloured Cherry Blossoms.

Thanks for stopping by.... As I am the last blog on the hop please pop back to the Magnolia Down Under Challenges blog and tell us what you thought of the hop ...................
