Magnolia Down Under Challenge #10 - Mum's the Word

I am hoping this post magically appears when it's supposed to as I'm heading home from Convention today, this computer stuff still gets to me sometimes - give me paper or fabric any day!!!!

WOW - Week 10!!!! It only seems like yesterday that Kellie sent me an email with the idea of starting her own blog!! I'm soo glad she did and even happier I'm on board!

This week's theme is "Mum's the Word" because next Sunday is Mother's Day here in Australia. What a fantastic time to jump on board and give the Magnolia Down Under Challenge a go - you get to play the challenge AND make your mum a card!!

A few weeks ago I posted a card made from scraps on my desk - THIS is the card I had just finished making! My mum loves strong colours, yet she certainly enjoys soft flowers too - so I think this card will fit be perfect for her - and since I know she can't check my blog out I know it's safe to show you!

Go and check out what the rest of the DT has been up to and then see what you can do!

Oh, your Mum will LOVE this cutie of a card you made!! And I enjoy how you notched out the corner of your sentiment... such a FUN accent! The pearls make the card so elegant and sweet... YOU have an enjoyable Mother's Day too! How was convention?... can't wait to get the juicy details! Smiles... Michelle :)
