We have lift off - Just Magnolia's first challenge

Woohoo, this has been the longest two weeks lol, but the 17th has arrived at last and it's time for Just Magnolia's first challenge. The DT, along with The Hobby House, have put together a fab prize for the first week - really drool worthy so I hope you will all take part in this weeks challenge. Pop over to the blog to see what's up for grabs, it's worth at least £50!!!! The first challenge is a sketch by Donalda and the DT have also made such fabulous creations.

Just Magnolia Sketch 1
I really enjoying working with this one and adding my own twist to it |(there's always one - I know lol). I love this colour combo (must use it more) and once again reached for K&Co papers. Instead of the circle as in the sketch I used a heart doily stamp (to be awkward lol).
magnolia-challenge-1-a
The inside - I used the roses stamps that were in the Magnolia Spring Kit instead of punched or Prima flowers for a change. They are such fab little stamps - why haven't I used them before now???
