Midweek Magnolias - We're off!!!

It's finally here - the start of a new journey with a brand new challenge blog - Midweek Magnolias.  I know there are lots of Magnolia challenge blogs out there, and every one of them is just fab, but if like me you just love any excuse to get your Maggies out and join in with the rest of the Tilda-loving community in creating and showing off your projects, then one more blog is just a bonus!  And we have had such great fun putting together a number of themes for other Magnolia fans to join in with and enjoy.  But you can't have an exciting new blog without a fabulously talented team, and I think that Midweek Magnolias have just that - such a lovely bunch of ladies, all with superb skills, and all with different styles, all to tempt and inspire your to play along with us.  We have also been extremely lucky to have Magnolia themselves offer weekly prizes to some lucky players, so why hold back?  You know you want to play!! LOL!

We also owe a huge debt of gratitude to the very lovely and extremely talented Roberta of Prairie Fairy Designs who has done us the great honour of creating our gorgeous new blog background.  But she also has an amazing range of her own digital images that you really have to see, so please pay her a visit and leave some love!

Right then, here we go - our first theme is Hello!  Pure and simple!  It's a nice easy open theme to gently ease you into our blog - gives us a chance to get to know each other.  As long as your project has some form of greeting on the front then it's appropriate for our theme this week.  Here is my creation:

Obviously feeling quite patriotic this week! LOL!!  This is my stepper card made using the gorgeous Portobello Road collection.  I fell in love with this the first time I saw it because it matches my favourite set of mugs!!  I'm not kidding, I have two favourite sets - a Cath Kidston collection and a Shabby Union Jack collection (Tesco's own!) and I refuse to drink out of any other cup!  (DH despairs of me!).

Anyways,  I hope you like it - if you happen to be popping in here, I would be really grateful if you would also visit my lovely teamies who's links are just over there --------> and leave them a little love also!

Look forward to seeing you all as I go visiting your blogs this week! :o) xx
