Midweek Magnolias #52 Happy Birthday to us. Blog Hop


This is a longish post girls!!! so grab a cuppa and start reading.!!!!





Do you like my new handmade cabochon roses, I'm so proud of myself and it was Debbie Dolphin
that got me hooked with her fabulous tutorial.  I'm now on the hunt for silicone moulds to broaden my horizons.  So if you hear of anyone selling them please do let me know.  



Happy Birthday to ............................



Wow!!! where has the last year gone!!!  it feels like just a few short months ago that Anne launched the new challenge blog and here we are celebrating our 1st Birthday. 

So what are we doing to celebrate!!! We are having a 

BIRTHDAY BLOG HOP!!!! To join us all you need to do is create a BIRTHDAY project.  There are some serious prizes to be won but you will have to pop over to the challenge blog to find out what they are and of course you must read the rules at the top of the blog so you will be included in the prize draws. This will be winging it's way to a very lucky participant and was kindly donated by our lovely Cathy



And that's not all!!! someone will also win the fabulous Mystery Prize from Magnolia in Sweden

Any way enough of my ramblings, lol.  For my card I've masked 3 beautiful Tildas and coloured them with various mediums, Copics, pencils, flexmarkers and promarkers, far too many to list I'm afraid!!  I will of course pop a list of ingredients with links where possible at the bottom of my post.

Would you like to win this card along with the wee candy I've put together!!!  of course you would!! all you need to do is leave me a comments and your name will be placed into the hat or some receptacle and one of my sweet  Grandsons will draw the name out on Thursday 21st March and this little bundle will be on it's way to the winner along with my card.


Your should have come her from our sweet Nadell but if you didn't then please go back to Midweek Magnolias where you will find a complete list of the Hop order,  we wouldn't want you to miss out on these fab prizes.  If you've had enough of my chatter then the next stop on the list is our lovely Julie  

Wishing you all good luck and do remember to read the rules

Hugs xox
