Magnolia Down Under Challenges 1st Birthday Bash CANDY Blog Hop...

Hello there Magnolia Lovers and Welcome to the 1st Birthday Blog Hop for Magnolia Down Under Challenges....!!

We are so excited and thrilled to become 1! Who knew that when Magnolia Down Under Challenges started with only 3 members it would be bigger and better a year on. We are all SO EXCITED that we have decided to do a birthday blog hop and whats better is that all the DT are offering CANDY! To be eligible you have to hop on to each Design Team Member and leave them some comment lovin affection ;) Winners will be announced on Magnolia Down Under Challenges Blog at the end of the challenge and also on the personal DT blogs on whom won their candy.

If you've just happened across my blog and didn't start at the beginning click HERE.... But if you have come from Debra then you are well on your hop....
Here is my card, Happy Birthday MDUC! I could not help myself and had to use the gorgeous heart breaker Edwin (get him here...) and used one of my favorite colours, I love this shade of green...hmmm, maybe I should put my bridesmaids in this colour.. decisions, decision... So, not too much to say, I have inked and glittered all of my edges, added some roses from iamroses.com, some pearls, lace and ribbon from my stash and the happy birthday stamp is just from a random set of sentiments I have in my collection :)
And here is my candy (it is my first and I am so very excited about it!!)
I have got for you a collection of some of my favourite embellishments, ribbons, lace, roses, bling, charms, sequin snowflakes and some stamped images thrown in (just let me know if you are a copic or watercolour chicky when you win and I will stamp accordingly) So just leave me a comment and you are in with a chance to win!!

Thanks for stopping by.... Continue the hop by visiting Jane
