May Celebrations!

Before I get to the chat about this week's challenge, I would just like to take a moment of your time to say that we really appreciate the efforts that everyone makes to join in with our challenges each week. However, our challenges are meant to be fun and for enjoyment, and never a competition. When we have stamps or images to give away we pick names at random, not because they have made the most elaborate or prettiest ATC. We are a group of friends who love Magnolia stamps and wanted to share that with you, and so, for this week's challenge I've chosen

Here in Cornwall we have lots of spring celebrations and in years gone by every village had it's May Queen and dancing around the Maypole in celebration of the brighter and warmer days and the blossoming of the fruit trees. So this week we would like to see your ATC creations with this theme and to give you some inspiration take a look at the Design Team's ATCs below and visit their blogs. Facts and figures for making an ATC are on the side bar, we don't mind if you go on to use your ATC as a card topper, but we would just like to see the little design you create.
