So let me tell you about this week's challenge at Magnolia Down Under it's:

CALENDAR - Add/Create/incorporate a Calendar in you project

What an Awesome Theme??  I love this idea - at first was going to make a card and put a date on it... then I thought I could make a calendar and stick that on a card... but then I had an even better idea......  so here it is - hope you LOVE it, as much as me - and I love it lots!! hahaha

So there are lots of bits and bobs to this one - which are of course all listed below in case your interested.... but I have had my new Magnolia Stamp Kit for a little while, and I tell ya I have been busting at the seams to ink up some of these... so here is a close up of Tilda and her Balloon and an AWESOME cute mini.... Tilda with many hearts!!

Here is a close up of King Tilda!!  Its so great to finally know what their proper names are!! Although I guess Tilda and Balloon!!!  I'm pretty impressed with my colouring.... I think I have improved a bit.... still truck loads to learn!!  So Special thanks to Blondie aka Kylie Kueter for giving me some tips every now and then!!
