Anything Goes winners and Shabby Chic

post signature

Welcome Magnolia friends to our new challenge for October!
Before that though, I have to say a huge thank you to everyone who entered last months challenge, so many amazing projects and you are all soooooooo talented! You are all winners and it's such a shame only one of you can win the prize, it's a relief therefore to hand over the difficult decision of choosing the winner to Random.org and this time the number picked was......
#34 - that's you Jacqueline!
and here is your beautiful card in glorious monochrome!


Congratulations Jacqueline! Grab the winners badge for your wonderful blog and please contact me, Nicola, using this email, simplymagnoliais@gmail.com   so I can post you your mystery prize!

Ok, let's see who made it into the DT Top 3, which this time is a little bit different as it is totally my choice rather than the DT's and it's a Top 5 as I couldn't narrow it down any more!



#4 - Jirawadee

Magnolia Tilda with armful flowers Napoleon Birthday Card

#21 - Cathy Lee


#33 - Shuly

Well done ladies, the standards are so high, please take the Top 3 badge for your amazing blogs!

Wow, after the amazing level of craft on display last month, I can't wait to see what you all come up with for October!
Which leads me nicely into this month's challenge....
