Bling It On at Midweek Magnolias

Hello. Long time no see, my fellow bloggers.
 I do apologize for being an absent blogger lately but my Scentsy business has totally taken off !!
 I have been doing trade shows with Velata (chocolate fondue- a new line Scentsy has come out with.....) as well as home parties, basket parties & fundraising events with Scentsy!!
 I just finished a VERY SUCCESSFUL fundraiser for my sons preschool class with Scentsy. Happy customers, happy parents, happy teachers and a very happy consultant (that 's me) to hand over a nice cheque to them!! Gosh I love this stuff. 

Check out my Scentsy BLOG HERE for updates, specials and news! 

In the midst of all of this, I have slightly neglected my MIDWEEK MAGNOLIAS  Challenge blog duties, therefore I am posting this creation a bit late! 

Our challenge currently underway is :


I was so excited when my new stamps & copics from Oozak came in I just had to color her up right away! 

Meet Summer Flower Tilda! Cute right? Now if you clicked on the link back there <--- you will notice that Summer Flower Tilda is facing the opposite way of which I have her on my card. Nope, it is not magic, it is actually the work of the Large Solid Palette Rectangle; which is made of rubber that allows you to stamp & restamp a stamp (have I confused you yet)....thereby giving it a completely different look. 
Very neat. 
I purchased this block from theStampTrap probly 2-3 months ago and this was my first time using it! And it won't be my last. I was introduced to this item from Debbie back in this post of hers.

Can you spot my bling?

Come on over to meet the other MIDWEEK MAGNOLIAS  & see their creations! 

Challenges for my card:
TOMIC- sketch & summer holidays
Magnolia Stamp Lovers- square card
Just Magnolia- anything goes
Magnolialicious- photo inspire

If you can fit yourself into each and every one of these categories (listed below) then we want YOU!!

Right then, we are looking to add some new members to our team so that we can offer lots more inspiration and motivation. Any of the girls will agree that we are the friendliest team in blogland and we have a great rapport. We don't believe in getting stressed over anything to do with blog challenges, we support one another all the way, and we have great respect for everyone who joins in our themes. Backstage we like to organise swappies etc... amongst ourselves and we do share a giggle or two - mainly about life in general!

If you think you would like to join our merry little band for the next 3 months you will be someone who can put ticks in the following boxes:
  • I am a great team player with a good sense of humour
  • I can create a brand new project each week based on existing themes using Magnolia Stamps, Papers, Die Cuts, Flowers, etc. and post sample onto the main blog by no later than Tuesday evening (GMT), and post to my own blog to show on Wednesday am (GMT)
  • I can take fairly decent photographs of my work to showcase my projects in a way that will inspire others to want to join in with our weekly challenges or try something new for themselves
  • I have an active blog which I update on a regular basis
  • I am happy to leave sincere comments on players blogs having been allocated numbers to ensure all players get some appreciation from the Midweek Magnolia team (we don't mind if you are on other DT's, even other Magnolia DT's, but where a crossover occurs, we would expect you to leave a comment on behalf of Midweek Magnolias as well as the other team(s) that you are a member of)
  • I am happy to take responsibility of selecting the Top 3 (this may be changed to more if numbers of players continue to increase) on a rotational basis
  • If for any reason I am unable to participate at any time, I will give the team enough notice in order that my responsibilities may be covered
So if you feel that this is you we would love to hear from you. When posting your entry for this week's theme, please include DT alongside your name. If you are not participating this week but still wish to be considered, please leave a comment in the box below.  You can leave comments up to Sunday 3rd June, after this date, your application may not be considered.
