Hello Magnolia lovers!

First we would like to give you the boring part of the  message today by reminding you of some necessary rules in order to be fair to all the great participations we receive:
- Happy news cause you now have more time to play with us as the due date to submit has been extended to Sunday 20:00 (Paris time).
- As the challenges are sponsored by the great MAGNOLIA for all the generous secret prizes, your main stamp image has to be Magnolia.
- We are pleased to see your creations in our challenge, just be cautious not to combine our challenge with more than 5 other challenges.
- Each week you have a fun and gorgeous new challenge with a theme to follow to be able to enter our challenge. what you need to do is explained in the post and sure want to follow this to be part of the draw!
- Unfortunately, the entries that won't follow the rules will be cancelled and won't be entering the draw for the Magnolia secret prize, neither won't they be picked as Top 5 or Guest DT spot.


For this week's challenge which is about recycling, you do have to show us the before/after pictures of your recycled details on your blog. If we don't see this, sorry but you won't be eligible and that would be a shame considering the hard work you put into your project.
