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 what's better is that all the DT are offering CANDY! To be eligible you have to hop on to each Design Team Member's blog and leave them some comment lovin affection ;) Winners will be announced on the Magnolia Down Under Challenges Blog at the end of the challenge and also on the personal DT blogs for who won their individual candy.
If you've just happened across my blog and didn't start at the beginning click HERE.... But if you have come from Kristy's blog then you are well on your hop....
Now you've seen the front of my birthday card but there's a little surprise waiting on the inside! There's a surprise party there - woohoooo - what fun!!!! I've used this very special occasion to make my very first "pop-up" card! This was sooo much fun but I did have to be very careful about not using too many thick embellishments on the inside - I soo wanted to add in party streamers and more flowers!!! But at least there's cake and a present!
The white shape is for writing in your message - just in case you were wondering - LOL. I've used a mix of Basic Grey and Kaiser DPs here - my Nestabilities and Martha Stewart punch got a work out too. The ticket stubs are Bizzy Bec's digitals and the swirl stamp is by Rhonna Farrar (flourishes v:2). I've used Neenah paper I got from my friend Sammi - who's going to be selling it here in Oz for all of us Downunder Copic gals - it's the first time I've used it and I'm hooked!
To keep the fun going here's a little bit of blog candy from me for one lucky person - in it you'll find 60's Tilda, 1 pack of mini rhinestones, 1 pack of Dragonfly Crafts Rhinestones and 8 charms (2 each hearts, flowers, dragonflies and butterflies) AND what's a surprise party without a surprise???? You'll find an additional goodie in your parcel when it arrives - but I'm not going to tell you what it is - it does keep the "bling" theme going though - LOL!!!
Thanks for stopping by.... Continue the hop by visiting Angie...
Now just in case you've got yourself a little lost here is the complete hop in order for you - enjoy and GOOD LUCK!
Debbie (that's ME!)
