Challenge 8-Wishing you well!

Thank you all for participating in last week's challenge your work was fantastic!

As some of you may already know, poor Donna has hurt her back so I am helping out with the challenges while she recuperates. Get well soon Donna!

Now onto this week's challenge - Wishing you well!

I thought it would be very apt to have a get well challenge this week, not only is Donna out of action but there seems to be a lot of colds and other viruses doing the rounds just now.

You could make a Get Well card or a mini book, an altered item or gift box, anything really that would cheer up a sick friend or relative!

Don't forget to include at least 1 Magnolia stamp on your work along with the theme! To play along just leave a comment leaving a link to your card! If you don't have a blog or other means to display your work you can email me and I will try to put them on here, but please only use this option if you don't have any other alternative!

Here are some great examples from the DT for inspiration.








(translation-tomorrow the sun will shine again, Get well soon!)


Please don't forget to check out the DT blogs (links on the right) for details of their projects!

The cards below are challenge cards for those without a blog to show their work

~*~ 6 ~*~ Recycling Mothers

Its Prize Time!!!

Hi everybody im so thrilled to see some new faces last week entering the challenges,
This is week an extra special week for us!
Firstly one of the Design Team Members has chosen the Theme this week But there is a twist! myself & A couple of Other Design Team members really wanted to do Mother's Day Early, So The Theme will be Mother's Day and ALSO we are using Deb's Theme ,

Here is what Deb is asking you all to do this week...

I have had lots of ideas but the one I like the most is Recycling! Because I am a huge recycling freak I thought it would be good to have a challenge where you have to use an item that has had a former life.
It could be a piece of card or paper from some packaging, cereal box card made into chipboard letters or shapes, ribbon taken from an article of clothing or chocolate box, old buttons taken from a garment etc.

So This week we would love to see your Mothers Day Art Work involving Recycling along with of course Magnolia stamps.

Here is the Design Teams Work.....

I have showcased Claudia's work into a slide, Only because she has so many pages to show you all, and i feel you should all see her lovely work & not just a snip of it.

Claudia's Recycling: Has used a Bamboo stick from her kitchen on the spine of the album,along with a Old Hair Band to hold the pages inside the album. Along

Donna's Recycling: I have used an Old purple piece of chain that was on a cheap Handbag that had been thrown out.

Andrea's Recycling: The blue backing card is recycled from my daughter's shoe box.

Katharina's Recycling: I have used an old Chocolate Box & Bag.

Annie's Recycling: My recycled piece is the plain oval behind Tilda which is from the back of a shop card I was sent.

Leann's Recycling: The recycled bit is the mountboard I used to make the box, I found out that a local picture framing place throws out the middle bit of the mounting frames they make.

Sharon's Recycling: I have recycled a frankfurter jar and made it into a vase as a gift for Mother's Day.

Deb's Recycling: A ribbon from a box of Thornton's chocolates and buttons from an old dress of one of my girls.


Alex's Recycling: I used some pink paper sort of like mulberry paper i think , that my bouquet of flowers came in, to do the bow.
