MDUC # 31 meets Just Magnolia Hearts & Flowers

Hey Peeps! How are we all? My mojo seems to have packed up and left....either that or Im tired LOL, the kids just started back at school on Thursday after 6 weeks of summer holidays :) so slowly trying to get back into the school routine. So anyway its that time again for our next MDU challenge, this week we have a sketch for you as well as making it girlie and have orange on there somewhere. Our sponsor this week is "The cutting Cafe" they gave us Dt a little something to play with too which was so kind I got the sweet heart background which I have used my circle cutter to cut out a circle to stick in the middle of the doily. I think it actually looks really effective. They have sooo many digital backgrounds, templates stamps etc you should pop over here to check it out. I have also made this to enter into Just Magnolia their challenge is Hearts & flowers. I only have one heart, its the heart pin in my bow :) Cute card Thursday's challenge is Blooming gorgeous. So anyway here is our MDUC sketch below, dont forget to make it girlie and have some orange on there! So come join us and check out the changes we have made here!! We are back to weekly challenges whoop whoop.

I would also like to thank Norma and Sue for dedicating 6 months to us at Magnolia Down Under, this is their last challenge with us :( We are all sad to see them go, I am sure whatever they do they will both be successful as they are both SUPER talented!! So thanks lovelies I hope you two both have enjoyed your time with us.

Kristy, Love your sweet card, the papers, lacy doily and colours are so soft & pretty & girly. Tilda is adorable and coloured so beautifully. I can't see any probs with your mojo, maybe it needs to come & visit me for a few days. A wonderful take on the challenge and so inpspirational for all joining us at MDUC. Hugs Jodie from Oz
