January Magnolia Only Challenge: Seeing Spots!

It's time for another MAGNOLIA ONLY challenge here at The Ribbon Girl blog and this week we are 'seeing spots!'  Once again we have two fantastic prizes for our winner: a Magnolia stamp all the way from the home of Edwin and Tilda kindly donated by Magnolia of Sweden and a £10 voucher towards a spending spree at The Ribbon Girl



Of course we have a few simple rules - this is a Magnolia challenge so you must use a Tilda or Edwin stamp or Doo Hickey dies, create a new project that fulfils the challenge of 'seeing spots' then blog about it mentioning this challenge and use the InLinkz button at the bottom of the post to link it up. This challenge will close on January 31st, 9PM (UK time), the prize will be redrawn after one week if it is not claimed
