Thank you to everybody that took part in the last challenge, I haven't had a chance yet to look at all your work, I'm so sorry - But with the magnolias in stock now in my store, i haven't had a chance to sit down to myself for the last week,

which does mean i didn't even get a chance to play with my new magnolias and do this weeks challenge, But i will get it done over next couple days and added it to the list.

As for the Slidehsow as i been so busy and still am this week by looks things , I will be doing little bit of this tonight and you will have it up by Monday, So sorry for the delay once again.
But its only ickle me on my own that runs this blog , and i can only stretch myself so far lol

Now i have some sad News, Kristine will be leaving us as of this week, she's been poached by a Stamp Company and is being asked to be on there Design Team & nobody else's, Which is Great for kristine and so sad for us, I'm sure I'm not alone here when i say, We will mess having you on here.
and good luck with the New Design Team that you going to be in.

And also as you can all see by the voting box/Poll to your right ,
Kristine was picked as the winner for the little prize So kristine the goodies will be winging there way to you, you could call it a leaving pressie from us lol

Now this does mean we have 1 place free, now last week i was looking through all your blogs, i will be contacting people personally this time and inviting them to join. so watch out it could be you!!!

Now for this weeks challenge......

Decoupage Tilda & Co

Now for this week..... I would love to see you decoupage with your magnolia stamps.

This could be as simple as having a Tilda or Edwin, that is holding something, you then stamp that image out twice, cut out the item he/she is holding and then layer it up with foam pads or silicone glue, to give a 3d effect

Or you could go totally wild and build up lot’s of layers.

Please remember your work could be a card, Layout(scrapbook page) Atc, Altered Item, anything you like! alsong as your work has Magnolia Stamp on there somewhere.

Below is the Design Teams Work......

(you will have to excuse emmas her Tilda was 3d but the glue dried all flat etc, and she didn't have time to correct this as it was a card for a Family member who's in hospital @ moment - Hope you don't mind me explaining/sharing Emma but it is such a lovely card i thought it needed showing off still)
