Midweek Magnolia - Happy Birthday !!!

Hi

Wow - I can hardly believe that it has been a whole year since we start the Midweek Magnolia Challenge, where does the time go?

Of course, we couldn't let our first birthday pass without a celebration, so we are having a Blog Hop and to make it a little more special, there are some prizes along the way - How fabulous is that?!!!   If you've hopped to me from Rebekah then you're on the right track.  If not, then please hop on over to the Midweek Magnolia Blog for the full list.

The theme for this week's challenge had to be "Birthday", here's my card:


The Magnolia Stamp I used is called Tilda with a Gift for You and is coloured using my Copic Markers - Here's a close-up:
