Week #4 - Sketch

Oh my Goodness, doesn't Wednesday come round quickly!  Once more we would like to thank everyone who played along with our theme last week.  The team loved visiting you all and seeing your fabulous creations.  We would also like to say a big Thank You to all who took up the GDT invitation call, and let you know that Suzi will be in touch with you very soon.  In the meantime, we are still keeping this invitation open, so if you would like to be called up as a Guest Designer for our blog, please leave GDT after your name, or in the comments box, if you haven't already done so.  If you have previously replied, you don't need to do it again as we have your details now.

Now then,  lets have a drum roll please for our fabulous Magnolia Marvels this week, who are
  Becky


Ladies, we would be delighted if you would grab our "Top 3" badge from the sidebar to display on your blog with pride.

And a big round of applause to the winner of this week's special prize from Magnolia chosen at random is

Big Congratulations to you Chanelle. If you would like to email Anne with your details and we'll arrange to have your prize sent to you.

And now moving on we would like to introduce this week's theme which is another sketch.

Hope you like it, there's lots of layers for you to play around with!    You can twist it, turn it, flip it or flop it, as long as your finished project bears some resemblence to our sketch.  Please don't forget to leave an URL direct to your project (and no backlinks please) once you've finished  so that the team can come and be inspired by your fabulous creations.   

We would also like to remind you that we are happy for you to combine your project with other blog challenges, but in order to qualify for the draw for the 'Mystery Prize' from Magnolia in Sweden, we would ask that you combine it with no more than 4 other challenges.

A special request from the team also, PLEASE would you turn word verification OFF as it just takes up such a lot of time to leave feedback and we are hoping to have lots of blogs to visit.

In the meantime, the girls have been at it again,  creating gorgeous samples to whet your appetite. Take a peek at this wonderful selection:






Hope you enjoy the theme. Don't forget to leave your link.

Week #3 Recipe 1-2-3 and Guest Designers Invitation

(Oops! had a bit of a blip with Mr Linky, but it's all working again now - sorry!)
Happy Wednesday Magnolia fans. Once again we are so delighted to see every one of your projects last week with our sketch and want to thank every one of you who joined in. It is such a delight to see your wonderful work!  So much so that we would like to invite you to be our special Guest Designers.   Your commitment would be to produce a piece of work for 2 of our themes during one month, you would be given plenty of notice as to what the themes are to give you time to prepare your projects.  Your finished piece would need to be well photographed and emailed to Suzi or Anne by no later than lunchtime on the Tuesday before the post is due to be published, and it should be posted to your own blog, linking back to Midweek Magnolias, on the Wednesday that the theme goes live.  You will also be requested to leave feedback to players - this is extremely important to us as we really appreciate the time and effort that people put into their projects when sharing their creativity with us.   In return we will give you a badge to display on your sidebar and you will hopefully have some new friends visit your blog!

If you would like the opportunity to be one of our Guest Designers, please leave GDT after your name when posting your project, or leave a comment at the end of the post which will lead us to your blog.

Now, before we give you the theme for this week, we would like to announce last week's Magnolia Marvels chosen by the team who are:
4 Elisabeth

6 Susie Sugar

20 Teresa A

Ladies, we would be delighted if you would like to snag our "Top 3" badge from the sidebar to display on your blog - it's well deserved!

And a big round of applause to the winner of this week's special prize from Magnolia chosen by random generator is:
Big Congratulations to you Arjette. If you would like to email Anne with your details and we'll arrange to have your prize sent to you.  In the meantime, you might like to display our "I Won!" badge on your sidebar and your name will be entered on the Roll of Honour!

This week we have a recipe for you. 1-2-3 = 1 Ribbon, 2 Pearls and 3 flowers.

Please don't forget to leave an URL direct to your project (and no backlinks please) once you've finished. We are really looking forward to visiting your blog and having a drool over your creations. Also, PLEASE would you turn word verification OFF as it just takes up such a lot of time to leave feedback and we are hoping to have lots of blogs to visit.

You may enter as many times as you like but each entry must have a seperate URL direct to your project. Good luck to each and every one of you.

In the meantime, our fab team have been creating some gorgeous samples to inspire you. Take a peek at this wonderful selection:

Week #1 - "Hello" from Midweek Magnolias

Hello Magnolia Fans and WELCOME to our brand new challenge blog. We are SOOO happy and excited to be posting our very first theme which we hope will inspire you to play along with us.  And check out our sexyyyyy new-look blog!  This is the amazing creation of the very lovely Roberta of Prairie Fairy Designs.  Hasn't she done us proud - go check out her other gorgeous, gorgeous artwork!  Thank You Roberta!
We thought that we'd be very gentle with you all on the first week as this is our way of getting to know you, and for you to get to know us, and so the theme is aptly titled

"HELLO"

It's quite an open theme, but we would like to see some form of greeting on your project.

We are extremely fortunate and grateful to Magnolia in Sweden who have very kindly offered to send a mystery prize to one of our players who will be selected at random. Just to remind you also that we are more than happy for your project to be combined with other challenges also, but to be fair to our generous prize givers we would ask you to keep it to a maximum of 5 challenges in total.

And if you can't get enough of your Magnolias, check out the other fab Magnolia challenge blogs out there who have delish themes and goodies for you too! You'll find links to them on our sidebar.

And so, our team of lovely ladies have been busy in the background creating beautiful samples to whet your appetite. Feast your eyes on these gorgeous projects:


AJ.

If you would like to visit them on their blogs to see the rest of their wonderful work and leave some love, they would be really grateful.

Don't forget to leave us a link direct to your project, and pleeeeeeaaase would you turn word verification off for us - it would mean such a lot.

Happy crafting all!
