Week # 12 - Romantic and Chic and DT Call

Another Wednesday, another theme! Welcome everyone to Midweek Magnolias, regular players and new, you are all very welcome here! We want to say an extra special THANK YOU to all of you who played along last week. We pushed the boundaries a little and, to be honest, there was a point before the weekend when we thought that we'd frightened everyone away with our Big White Space theme. But you came up trumps and delivered the goods, just as we knew you could!

Now then, it was extremely difficult to pick out our Magnolia Marvels for this theme as every single one of the entries was just so fabulous, but we had to do it, so here are our selection this week:

Well done ladies! If you would like to snag our badge ---> to display on your blog. Wear it with pride, you deserve it!
And a big round of applause to the winner of this week's special prize from Magnolia chosen at random is

Big Congratulations to you Mary D. If you would like to email Anne with your details and we'll arrange to have your prize sent to you.

This week we feel confident that our theme will inspire lots of you to play along - we've chosen the theme Romantic and Chic. So in contrast to last week's minimalist projects, this time you can you can go wild with your hearts, lace, flowers, die-cuts and romantic sentiments!

And joining us for the next two weeks here at Midweek Magnolia as Guest Designer is one of our lovely regular players, the very talented Teresa from Craftingallday. Thank you so much for this beautiful creation Teresa. It's so lovely to have you here with us. Please pop over to Teresa's blog to see her other gorgeous work and leave her some love.

Also, our fab team have been creating some gorgeous samples to inspire you. Take a peek at this wonderful selection:

And now it's over to you! Please don't forget to leave an URL direct to your project (and no backlinks please) once you've finished. We are really looking forward to visiting your blog and having a drool over your creations. A special request from the team also, PLEASE would you turn word verification OFF as it just takes up such a lot of time to leave feedback and we are hoping to have lots of blogs to visit.

Right then, we are looking to add some new members to our team so that we can offer lots more inspiration and motivation. Any of the girls will agree that we are the friendliest team in blogland and we have a great rapport. We don't believe in getting stressed over anything to do with blog challenges, we support one another all the way, and we have great respect for everyone who joins in our themes. Backstage we like to organise swappies etc... amongst ourselves and we do share a giggle or two - mainly about life in general!

If you think you would like to join our merry little band for the next 3 months you will be someone who can put ticks in the following boxes:
  • I am a great team player with a good sense of humour
  • I can create a brand new project each week based on existing themes using Magnolia Stamps, Papers, Die Cuts, Flowers, etc. and post sample onto the main blog by no later than Tuesday evening (GMT), and post to my own blog to show on Wednesday am (GMT)
  • I can take fairly decent photographs of my work to showcase my projects in a way that will inspire others to want to join in with our weekly challenges or try something new for themselves
  • I have an active blog which I update on a regular basis
  • I am happy to leave sincere comments on players blogs having been allocated numbers to ensure all players get some appreciation from the Midweek Magnolia team (we don't mind if you are on other DT's, even other Magnolia DT's, but where a crossover occurs, we would expect you to leave a comment on behalf of Midweek Magnolias as well as the other team(s) that you are a member of)
  • I am happy to take responsibility of selecting the Top 3 (this may be changed to more if numbers of players continue to increase) on a rotational basis
  • If for any reason I am unable to participate at any time, I will give the team enough notice in order that my responsibilities may be covered
So if you feel that this is you we would love to hear from you. When posting your entry for this week's theme, please include DT alongside your name. If you are not participating this week but still wish to be considered, please leave a comment in the box below.  You can leave comments up to Sunday 3rd June, after this date, your application may not be considered.

Successful applicant(s) will be notified by Friday 8 June and you will be expected to participate in your first theme on Wednesday 13 June. We can't wait to hear from you! Let's craft!

Love from the Midweek Magnolias xxx
