I can't believe that with all the excitement
last week in revealing Belles 'n Whistles
puzzle pieces that my 5000th blog hit came
and went without me stopping to acknowledge it.
I'd like to say a HUGE thank-you to
everyone that has stopped by to look at my
over the last year to look at my creations.
It's really encouraging having fellow crafters
view and comment on your work.
And so onto this weeks Roses on Paper challenge.
The very talented Lim has asked for a card with Hearts.
I bought these gorgeous heart charms at the Melbourne
Craft & Quilt Fair that I went to last week which were
just perfect for this challenge.
This ~From the Heart~ stamp was the perfect
sentiment to go with the Heart theme and finished
off the gift card nicely.
To take part in this challenge and your chance to maybe
pickup one of the fantastic prizes that Summer offers up
with each challenge be sure to go to our
If you don't have the necessary stamps for our challenges
be sure to visit Summer for all your Magnolia stamps.
You may have noticed the strange title for
this posting -
3.5 Challenges in One & a Bag Full of Hearts!!!!!
I've been so busy trying to complete our
end of year tax paper work that I haven't
had a great deal of time to 'play' at my
craft desk - so I decided to combine my 4
favourite challenge blogs in one ~
(are you beginning to get the idea that I LOVE Magnolia's!!!)
But why the 3.5???
Well the Just Magnolia Tutorial blog has a tutorial on
creating 3D images - as I've only made my letter 3D
I figure I've only done half the challenge!!!!!
The Just Magnolia challenge blog had this awesome
sketch - with the request for 3 x something in the top
corner it was just the perfect place for my 3 Hearts.
And then finally Just Magnolia Too had the interesting
idea of decorating a paper bag. I chose to decorate a
brown paper gift bag - I just don't want to give it away
to anyone now!!!!!
And there you have it - 3.5 Challenges in One!!!!!
