Magnolia-licious March Sketch!!

Jacque gave us a great sketch to work with for the March challenge! It is so great that I was inspired to make a box too! I have more pictures so I'll try to keep the chat to a minimum! This is Tilda from the Raising the Ceiling Collection (and the Winter kit). If you are interested please let Diana know. She'll give you info on when she will have more in the store. Please head to the Challenge blog to see the sketch and the other Design Team member's gorgeous creations.

My box is from Papertrey Ink template called Do Me A Favor. The sides open wide so it would hold quite a bit. I've forgotten to mention that I printed a lot of boxes because a few weeks ago I bought a new printer and I am seriously IN LOVE with it! It's a Canon with a Rear tray so it prints all these templates I've bought. I'm soooooo happy! This is one I had printed (in soft sky) and it seemed the perfect time to put it together!


I used Y21, E08 and E25 on her hair. Her shoes are E33 and E99. Her dress is BG10 and BG72 and the green is YG01 and YG25. Her skin is the usual E000, E01 and R20.

Love this little gal, so here's a close up!
And then a pic of the front of our house! Our "olow guy" had to pile the snow on Sunday so there is room WHEN (not IF!) we get more! Funny how you can hardly see the front door!
(I had two pics, but one disappeared on upload!

These are both gorgeous...what a fun little box! I've never seen anything like it! I always get inspired when I see these types of things on other people's blog....& think "wow that would be a great gift for so-and-so" & you know I just never ever make them!! I am project challenged! So what does the rear tray on your printer do??

Look at all that snow! You actually have more than we do!! It's supposed to be in the 40's later in the week & I can't wait! It was actually pretty nice today as well....I didn't wear my coat on the way home from work...in fact I was quite warm! Either spring is around the corner or those hot flashes are setting in lol!

I LOVE your card and box. Soooo pretty! As far as your house hidden behind the snow... that's just crazy! I'm here in sunny Arizona where it's 67 degrees today. It was raining all weekend and we got snow on the mountains nearby but it's going to be a nice Spring week here in the valley. I should send you some sunshine! ;-)

Cheryl, I love your card for the March challenge. Of all the ones by the DT, I love the colors in yours the best. (Love Suzanne's too, but your colors pop.) Your coloring is wonderful. I have ordered a bunch of these and would love to just sit and color these cuties. Wow, I'd say you've received your fill of snow, yes?
