Flowers winners

post signature
Good evening Magnolia fans and welcome to our Flowers winners post!
Huge thanks to every single one of you who entered, I guess it proves you all really love your flowers, and who can blame you! Over the sixty two entries there were a massive array of blooms that showed such diversity, and they were all incredibly beautiful too!
Which leads me to the winner of our GDT position, I'm glad I'm not choosing, that would be just too difficult, soooo I thought the fairest way would be to leave it to good old Random.Org as always....
the person that was randomly chosen is

Welcome Magnolia fans from around the world to our brand new challenge!
'Flowers'
We all love our flowers and most of us can't make something without putting a few flowers here and there. So no matter what the occasion....Mothers' Day (UK), birthdays, anniversarys, or just celebrating spring being just around the corner, let's see those beautiful blooms!

Instead of a sponsor this fortnight, the prize will be a GDT spot for Simply Magnolia!

Team Elegance
 have some truly gorgeous inspiration again for you this week....

CAS or Fully Loaded

post signature

Hello again,
Welcome this time to the start of our brand new challenge....

'CAS or Fully Loaded'

so whatever your design tastes, join in the Magnolia fun!

Our awesome sponsor this fortnight is
The Ribbon Girl

In 2010 we (Mother and Daughter, Mary and Andrea)  decided to open our own online store The Ribbon Girl so we could make very small (or large) quantities of top quality products available to all crafters at reasonable prices - so you can mix and match and make your craft budget go further.    We only sell what we would use ourselves - Mary owns and runs the store while Andrea looks after the social side including the Ribbon Girl challenges and our mega talented Design Team. Based in the UK, we ship world wide and try to send all orders the same day whenever possible.
So whether you like crafting in classic, vintage, rustic, shabby chic or modern style you'll be spoiled for choice! Ribbon Girl stocks an impressive selection of gorgeous ribbons and trims from silk to hessian, well over one hundred  different designs of vintage style, cotton, guipure and flat lace (all ribbon and lace is sold by the metre in continuous lengths whenever possible) hundreds of charms and pendants, all available as single units.    Our Flower Shop is full pretty flowers and beaded berries and we are stockists of Wild Orchid Crafts, Kort & Godt and many others, in mulberry, cotton paper, satin, organza; we have gorgeous diamante and pearl embellishments; a vast array of buttons, twine, hemp, vintage style brooches, special occasion, bridal and seasonal embellishments. Our Christmas Shop is open all year round and we also offer craft essentials such as top-stitch thread, sticky tape, Glossy Accents, Liquid Pearls and Stickles, brooch backs, hair slides, hat pins etc
Small orders are always welcome at The Ribbon Girl and we hope you enjoy looking around the store - please contact us if you need advice or a sample - especially if you are planning a wedding and want to use lace or ribbons on your invitations, wedding stationery, favours or celebration cakes

and who wouldn't want to win this??!.....



Thank you Mary and Andrea!
