Magnolia-licious Challenge for November!!

Hello!! I have my November Challenge card to show you today! It took me a few days to complete, but I am so happy with it!  Some cards are like toys and this Peek-a boo card is one of those fun ones!!  But, I am getting ahead of myself.  In case you haven't seen it, the new challenge at Magnolia-licous is brought to us by Norma Lee!  She has asked us to make something 'hidden' about our cards!  Please see the blog linked above for ideas on what you can do!   
 I used Norma's picture tutorial to make a Peek-a Boo card!  I hadn't made one in a while and had NEVER made a 6 x 6 inch one, so her directions were so helpful!! Thanks, Norma!! Just click on Tutorials on her blog and you will find the tutorial!  As you may know, there's a window in the front and when you open it up another image slides (like magic!) into view!
 Here's my card partially open and the image is coming!!
 And, here is the card almost completely opened!
I used Magnolia stamps from Diana's amazing store-MAGNOLIA-LICIOUS!  The front image is #337 TILDA WITH LOVIKKAMITTENS and the inside image is #336 TILDA WITH TWO LITTLE GIFTS!  Diana offers a wonderful discount all the Magnolia images, including the newest collections!  And, she also 'gives back' store credit for your next purchase!!  AND, to top it off, now she has some of her best designers coloring images for the store so YOU can get an idea of how they look!  (Which is amazing!)  I've also used an older stamp-the window-from Magnolia-licious for my window behind Tilda.  You could also use some of the terrific Memory box (or Poppy stamps)  window dies for a similar effect.  The snowflakes I used are from Memory Box as well!  AND I could NEVER put a card like this together without SCOR-TAPE!
Please be sure to check out the Magnolia-licious Highlites Blog for some fantastic inspiration and consider joining in on our challenge! We'd love to see what you create!!
Thanks for coming by to see what I've been up to!
Hugs, Cheryl

P.S.  Diana has NEW Magnolia dies in the store as well as a sale on Mini stamps and the Mini Storage System!  check it out on the links to the store!

Gorgeous! The colors, the design, those snowflakes, and the magic card....just amazing! No wonder it took so long to create!

Things are going well in my neck of the woods! Had my formal observation two weeks ago under the new procedures and it went well. Also just finished up my SLOs. Wasn't as bad as I thought! Now on to the business of teaching! Have a great long weekend!
