NOVEMBER CHALLENGE-Angie's Inspiration!

Hello and Happy Thursday! Only one more day until Friday!!  Though I can't believe it's already November, I say, "bring it on!"  We, the DT at Magnolia-licious have the November challenge ready for you!! It's a couple of inspiration photos for you to choose from by the most talented, Angie!  You can see them both on the Magnolia-lcious Highlites Blog!  You have all month to play, so come on and join in!!

My image is one of the adorable new ones from the Sweet Christmas Dreams collection! I gotta have them All!!  This one is #3093 WINTER TILDA ! I'm so sorry that she's not in stock, but she is on reorder!  I also used the older images Winter trees (sorry, I don't have the number!)  and #571 Winter fence.  AND, I masked the fence and trees and then cut them out as one piece.
The snowy background that Tilda is standing in front of is ALSO FROM MAGNOLIA-LICIOUS!!  iT IS GORGEOUS!!   You get green, red, blue and white in this pattern! 
I don't know about you, but I love the change of seasons!  Onc of the most beautiful sights is when it snows and the snow is so white that it looks blue!  That's what Angie's picture reminded me of.  We haven't had that this year, but it may be in the near future, methinks! 
I used tips on colors from my friends, Barb Hardeman and Suzanne Dean. these tips came from their blogs when they colored blue images and listed the copics they used!  Thanks, girls!! You're the best!  Both blogs are on my sidebar.  I'm kinda tired, but I will edit to add the colors from these artists that I used! Promise-I'm much more alert in the morning!
I added lots of stickles for that special sparkle that snow has in the sun and, of course, Tilda needed some too!
Okay, bedtime soon, for me, so thanks for visiting today!! Swing by again soon!
Hugs, Cheryl
