FEBRUARY CHALLENGE!!

Hi!! It's February!! Hard to believe, but it's already time for another Magnolia-licious challenge!!  We are thrilled with all the entries for our January, Anything Goes challenge!! they were fabulous!!  The winner will be chosen by Random.org and posted very soon on the blog and in the Magnolia-licious Yahoo group!  Stay tuned!
Okay, on to the new challenge!! It's brought to us by our dear, Patti Jo!  The theme is perfect for our Maggies, VINTAGE/SHABBY CHIC!! There is also an option of adding a key. 

 I will have to post another pic because I did add a heart and key 'lock' to my notepad after I took these pics!!
 My dear friend, Michele Ghent (mithcygitchygoomy on SCS) made these notepads for our Stampfest gathering last year.  I'd been meaning to CASE her fabulous work, so here is my take on it. It's the size of the notepads from Papertrey ink, 'cuz that's what's inside!  It's a 61/2 W x 81/4 L rectangle, scored at 1'. 1-1/4". 3-3/4 and 4". Below you can see the inside, where there is a hidden basic grey magnet to keep the pad closed up! Simple and genius, that's Michele!!
 Here is my coordinating card, which is 4'x4".  I used some of the same elements so they would work well together, but not be matchy, matchy! KWIM?
 Another shot of both. It's hard to tell in the small pics which is a better shot, so I used both!
I hope you like!! I would like to send this to one of you, so if you'd care to leave a comment, I will choose a winner on the weekend!  I'm still fighting this cold and I really appreciate you hanging in there with me between posts!!
Have a wonderful day and please check out the beautys on the MAGNOLIA-LICIOUS HIGHLITES BLOG!!  I see that the challenge is no posted just yet, so you have a little heads up on it!  I know Suzanne is at CHA, but she is so efficient that I know she will have it posted before too long! There's sure to be a great prize from our wonderful Diana!!
Have a great day!!! (See you tomorrow for my card for the I Brake for Challenges challenge #18!  The new challenge will be up at 7:00 am ET!!
