Happy Birthday to Us!!!


Happy Birthday Midweek Magnolias!

This week we are celebrating our very first Midweek Magnolias Challenge Blog Birthday. I can’t believe it has been a year already. So we are celebrating our Birthday with a Blog Hop.

If you are here, this is the first stop on your trip to visit all the lovely Midweek Magnolias joining the Hop. We have some fun and prizes that you are sure to enjoy. If you are joining in for the hop all you need to do is leave a comment on each of the DT's blogs for a chance to win this sweet collection of crafty goodies.
 

 

My Birthday card begins with the darling “Tilda with Balloon.” She is one of my favorite stamps.
 

 

Tilda was colored with Copics and diamond stickles were added to her balloon and clothing. I also gave her shoes a coat of diamond glaze.
 

 

I kept my card design simple with punches/die cuts, ribbon, pearls and flowers. My papers are from MME’s In Bloom collection joined with Bazzill cardstock.
 

 

Here’s a close up of Tilda.

Candy – Candy - Candy

OK, for the exciting part of the hop, I am giving my card and this candy…


 

…to one lucky winner. All you have to do is leave a comment and I will put your name in the draw. The winner will be chosen and published on my blog next Wednesday.

Now, your next stop is the very talented and lovely
 

I’m entering this project in the following Challenges:

Make It Monday – Anything Goes
MDUC – Happy Birthday
Color me Creative – Anything Goes

I hope my card inspires you to join us this week at Midweek Magnolias. Have fun creating…

Hugz,
