November Magnolia Only Challenge .......

Here we are almost at the end of another month - which means it's not long until Christmas :0) and but more importantly, it's time for another Magnolia Only challenge here at the Ribbon Girl blog!

Our challenge this month is very easy - we'd like to see your Winter or Christmas projects featuring Tilda, Edwin or a Doohickey die, and of course we have two fabulous prizes from our regular sponsors - a Magnolia stamp all the way from the home of Edwin and Tilda kindly donated by Magnolia of Sweden and a £10 voucher towards a spending spree at The Ribbon Girl

Our fabulous 'Magnolia Only' Design Team have once again worked their magic and created some lovely cards to inspire you! I'm sure you will agree they have surpassed themselves with these wonderful projects. Remember that all of the products mentioned under each project can be found in the Ribbon Girl Store

As usual our rules are simple - create a new project that follows the theme of the challenge (it must include a Tilda or Edwin stamp or a Doo Hickey die because this is our Magnolia challenge), blog about it mentioning our challenge then use the InLinkz button at the bottom of this post to add a direct link to your project.

This challenge will close on Saturday 30th November, 9PM (UK time)
