Photobucket
Hey! I am back with my card for the Magnolia Down Under Challenge and this week we are having a very special Birthday Blog Hop Party to celebrate MDUC's 2nd Birthday! I really hope you can join us! You have all week to join the challenge as usual...so the challenge will end March 19th. You also have all week to hop from blog to blog! Please leave comments on each and every blog as you hop as some of the DT have candy on their blogs and you must comment on every blog to be eligible for the candy the DT is offering up on their blogs! We also have prizes for this week's challenge from our wonderful sponsors are.... All That Scraps, Michelle's Scrapbooking, Quixotic Paperie, Tickled Pink Stamps!!!!!


The challenge this week is TWOS....this means you can use, TWO images, TWO patterned papers, TWO flowers, TWO buttons or any of these items or any other items in groups or combos of TWO. Just think TWO!!!!!

So if you have arrived from the very sweet and super Talented Tanja then you are in the right spot! If not then you may want to start at the beginning of the hop at the MDUC blog. Congrats if you have hopped all the way here....you are near the end of the hop now just hop back to the MDUC blog to finish of the hop!!!!

For my card I have used TWO sweet Tilda's from the You're So Special Collection...one is a Mini that came in my Magnolia kit and I love that it helps to create a little birthday celebration scene. I have coloured both Tildas with my Copics. I have also used TWO patterned papers, TWO colours of cardstock, TWO ribbons and I have grouped my Prima flowers and Pearls in groups of TWO!!!! I even used TWO Melissa Frances rub-ons for the sentiments.

Here is the inside of my card!!!! Pretty simple!

My Favourite Things Candy Time!!!
I also have a bit of candy to give away today too!!!  It has been so long since I have had any Candy and I want to thank all of my blogging frineds who visit me on a regular basis and do something special for the MDUC Birthday Bash!!! Most of it I have just gathered up from my stash and have been saving for a chance to do a little giveaway! My sweet friend, Helen, owner of my Local Scrapbooking Store Crop Circles in Peterborough has also donated some items, Crop Circles is now selling Magnolia stamps...whoo hoo!!!! Check it out here! Thanks so much, Helen for you kind donation!


The Candy includes many of my favourite things: Marianne Designs Flower Creatable Die, Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps Snow White, 6x6 BasicGrey Kioshi paper pad, BG Kioshi Brads and BG Bling It flower, QuicKutz ticket die, Twinery Twine 3 pack of Maraschino, Pink Sorbet and Cappuccino 15 yards each colour, Stickles, ColorBox Cat eye Chestnut roan ink, American Crafts ribbon. Helen from Crop Circles has generously donated a Bag of Blooms from Irene's Garden Flowers and they are gorgeous flowers, Fabulous Northern Lights Embossing Powder and a Sakura Stardust pen.

So, to be elegible for my candy please....
1. Hop from blog to blog and Leave comments on each and every MDUC blog along the hop!
2. Then come back here after you have done ALL the commenting and leave your name in the inlinks    below.
3. If you would also like to follow me that would be fab but not a requirement!
4. If you would like to post my candy in your sidebar to help spread the word that would be fabulous but not a requirement.

The Candy will be a random draw and will close on Saturday March 19th when the MDUC blog hop ends! Good Luck!!!!

Well, thanks so much for stopping by and having a wee peek at my card and enduring this very long post! Enjoy the blog hop and best of luck with the Candy Giveaway!!!!

Those banners are lovely the way they dip across the bacground paper of the inside & I do like how you use the different greens together. That middle layered strip with the scallops, lace & ribbon is so interesting & I love the way you've tied two ribbons into such a pretty knot on the front.
