Happy Birthday Midweek Magnolias!


Hurrah!  We are officially one year old now!  Hard to believe that 52 weeks ago we launched this fabulous weekly 'challenge' blog.  We call it a challenge, but in actual fact it's more an inspirational theme blog and lots of very lucky people have been fortunate enough to win fabulous prizes donated by our amazing sponsors, Magnolia in Sweden!

However, as this is our birthday, we have lots of other special treats for all our players to be in with a chance of winning.  We are having our first blog hop.  Chances are, you have probably arrived here via Jenny's wonderful blog - if not however, please visit her because if you do, and you leave her lots of love, you will be in with a chance of winning our fabulous Birthday Blog Prize which was very kindly donated by Cathy.  Take a look at this amazing bundle:
All this could be yours if you play along with our blog hop.  To do this you need to be a follower of Midweek Magnolias and you must visit each of the DT members own blogs and leave a comment. 

Some of the DT are also offering smaller prizes of their own and I have put together this little package:

There is some genuine vintage lace, some ribbons, die cuts, stick on sparkly gems, doilies, flowers and 2 boxes for you to alter in any way you see fit.  I may throw in one or two extras also ;o)

So, we have our big blog prize from Cathy, our Mystery prize from Magnolia, individual blog prizes and on top of all that, we are all giving away our cards this week to the individual blog winners also!  Wow!  What a birthday treat!

And before I forget to post it, here IS my card for this week:

I hope you like it.  The bg papers are all my own design (and stamped with a Kaisercraft stamp)and Tilda is coloured with pencils and stickles glitter glue.

So what now?  Well now, you need to hop over to my lovely talented teamie Becky and see what goodies she has to offer.

Thank you to everyone who plays along with our themes each week on Midweek Magnolias.  We do love seeing you there and we hope everyone has as happy a time there as we do!  Thanks for popping in here also.  Have a great week! :o) xx
