Just Magnolia Blog Hop - Happy Year One!!
A very happy Friday to everyone and after a few hours of biting a rubber bullet, I am feeling GREAT!!!! The Chemo on Monday and the Shot on Tuesday are well behind me now and I am ready to move on to much more exciting events!!! Thanks so much for all the notes of concern and all of your sweet comments!! Gosh, you all make things so much easier!!!! THANK YOU VERY MUCH!!!!
Welcome to the Birthday Party of the Just Magnolia Challenge Blog which is one year old! And to celebrate we are running a blog hop which is being sponsored by Simon Says Stamp. Not only are they sponsoring the prize for the regular weekly challenge, there is also an amazing prize that has been sponsored by Simon Says Stamp for the blog hop.
The theme of this week's challenge is Thank-You. For the DT this means a huge thank you to all our lovely followers and entrants each week and also to our amazingly generous sponsors for the fabulous prizes they put up each week. This little set of card and canister filled with chocolate truffles will be on its way to a special member of Simon Says Stamp right away!! For the card I used Bazzill for the base and all matting and part of the DP is PTI, the remaining DP is from the MM English Garden Collection. Gosh and this card would not have been possible without the wonderful gifts I received from my marvelously talented friend Claudia!! Sweetie, thank you so much for the lovely SU border punch and the delightful sentiment stamps!!! Just love them ALL!! I used the darling little Tilda with Three Flowers from Magnolia-licious, colored with Copics. The canister was covered in the same papers with a touch of Webster's Pages trim and Blue Roses on both pieces of the set! Also on the canister I used the cutest little Mini Maggie holding tulips!!! Too cute!!
