Just Magnolia's First Birthday Blog Hop

Just Magnolia 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 (a $20 gift voucher) 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. There's another of Mina's fabulous sketches for you to follow.


I used this Tilda (can't for the life in me think what she's called) and sat her  on Magnolia's wine glass from the winter collection 2009. The check papers is Kay&Co  Blue Poppy Plaid and the sparkly one is of unknown origin from my 'bit box', Tilda is coloured with distress inks, liberally sglittered with Stardust stickles and surrounded with small glasses of champagne from the Winter collection 2010. I've attached one of Magnolia's glass garlands to the flowers which are from my stash as is the ribbon. The sentiment is from WOJ and cut out with Spellbinders fancy tags.

Now onto the blog hop - if you've not arrived here from Jacqui's blog then - ooops  - back you go.
I you have arrived from Jacqui's blog then your next port of call is to the lovely Bev.


GOOD LUCK everyone - and Happy Hopping!!

hugs  Heather xx
