Magnolia Down Under - Bon Voyage

Good Morning Everyone,

Time for another challenge at Magnolia Down Under and this week we'd like to see your use your Magnolia Bon Voyage stamps... if you don't have any don't worry because any stamp will be okay if you have a travel or Good Bye theme! Our lucky winner this week will also have a chance to join us as a Guest DT for May.

I've chosen this cute little Asian Tilda and decided to make a bookmark. My paper is from Creations in Paper who recently closed their storefront and are now web based only. The metal corner and poppies are from Wild Orchid Crafts and I've used my Magnolia DooHickey with them. The tiny paper flowers were coloured with copics and I've added a small pearl to their centre. I've also made a window from vellum behind Tilda and added a little dragon fly charm which is more visible in the pic below.

I'd like to enter my bookmark into these challenges:-
Fussy and Fancy Challenge - Punches and Dies
Simon Says Stamp - Anything Goes
Wild Orchid Challenge - Spring is in the Air

Thanks for stopping by, have a great day!

A favour for a friend...

Hi everyone,

 I just received a message from my thoughtful DT friend at Colour Create ~ Mina who's asked us to spread the word about her lovely friend called Steph who is running the Belfast Marathon on the 7th May in aid of the Macmillan Cancer support.

 To quote Mina "her life and the life of her family have been touched by this horrendous disease and Macmillan helped them to get through it...there is not one of us who hasnt been touched in some way by it and the Macmillan support are amazing and so deserve our help...Steph is going to be dragging herself all that way around the marathon bless her but is really struggling for donations...heres the link to her just giving site and you can even donate using paypal (thats what I did)...even 50p/cent or £/$1 in fact any amount would be fantastic...thank you all so much"

As an added bonus Mina has a fabulous candy on offer that you can enter and as an added bonus if you donate she will let you enter again! Congratulations Mina on the 1500 followers :)

Here is the link to Mina's Blog, so if you can help by way of donation or help by spreading the word on your blog I'm sure Mina and Steph would really appreciate it. If you wish to donate follow this link to Steph's page.

Thanks so much :)

I was so happy that my new Magnolia Stamp - Lily Rose the Dragon and the matching paper arrived in time for the challenge! The colours were just perfect for Kerry's challenge.

My image is coloured with copics and I've masked my Dragon image and added the castle background stamp from the Fairytale Collection.

Happy Birthday Allan

Hi Everyone,

Just a quick post of the card I made for my bosses 60th Birthday! His two main loves are tennis and fishing and I had the two Edwins that I want to use but could work out how to use them both on the card. I really left it until the last minute to work it out but I think this worked out okay :)

I used the fishing Edwin image on the outside of the card, complete with the message in a bottle!

The inside of the card features this pop up image of Tennis Edwin :-

I must apologize for the quality of the photos but we were heading out to celebrate just as I finished the card and it was getting very late and quite dark :(

I'd like to enter my card in these challenges:-

Midweek Magnolias - Use 2 Characters
Papertake Weekly - A Stitch in Time
Cupcake Craft Challenge - In the Deep End
