October Magnolia Only Challenge ...

Wow we've got the last challenge of October to share with you all today - where is this year going to? We're thundering along and Christmas is just around the corner which is why we've gone all sparkly with our Magnolia only challenge theme

Photo: Breast Cancer Care  -  This beautiful Magnolia card by the renowned crafter Debbie Dolphin is being auctioned to raise funds for the Breast Cancer Care Charity -  please click on the photo for more information about the card itself and if you don't wish to bid yourself, please share this post with your friends because we all know someone affected by this, thank you  eBay for Charity item
Before we share the Design Team projects we'd just like to give our support to our dear friend and design team member Debbie Dolphin. Debbie has created a stunning card and she is auctioning it to raise funds for the Breast Cancer Care charity. Every penny that her card makes will go to the charity, you can find all the details on her blog. or you can go directly to the Ebay site  


So, our Magnolia Only challenge this week is to add sparkle

Of course it is our MAGNOLIA challenge so you obviously need to use a Tilda or Edwin stamp 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 usual rules apply - make a new project please that fits the current challenge (add sparkle), no backlinking to older projects, then blog about it mentioning this challenge and use the InLinkz button at the end of the post to leave your link. The challenge closes at 9PM on Saturday 1st November (the prize will be redrawn if it isn't claimed after one week) Remember that all the products listed below each project can be found in the Ribbon Girl online store
