Just Magnolia challenge and a bit of news

This week we have a fabulous sketch done by Mina to follow for the challenge. I really enjoyed working with it and it's perfect for all those scraps of paper that we have been hoarding (oh yes you do lol)!!week 26 jm jm-blueberry-tilda

I went with an aqua and brown combo for a change and because the card looked bare I went for the over-kill with the flowers and pearls (I just can't help it)!!!jm-blueberry-tilda1

Now to my news. If you could have seen me at lunch time doing a happy dance (yes the earth moved!!!) when I discovered my first DT kit from Magnolia had been delivered. When they emailed me a few months back and asked me to join their DT I thought it was too good to be true but having the DT kit in my little mitts has made it very real indeed. Part of the DT requirements is to have a Magnolia only blog (which I set up a few months back) where all my Magnolia cards will go, but I will still be posting them on this blog as well. Blimey there are so many blogs against my profile now I don't know whether I am coming or going!! So thanks Magnolia for giving me the opportunity to work with you *U*

Recipe:
Stamps: Magnolia Tilda with Blueberries, sentiment a freebie from a magazine (that's why I bought the mag lol)
Papers: Paper Salon Enamoured from
The Hobby House
Tools: Fiskars Apron Lace punch, nestabilities, McGill Pine punch
Embellies: Roses from Wild Orchid Crafts, Pearls by Prima, pearl pin from Tabbycrafts



Thanks for stopping by,
