February Magnolia-licious DT Sketch Project

Happy February Everyone!  I don't know about you but I'm sick of winter and am so looking forward to spring!  Sometimes I wish I was a bear and could hibernate all winter---that way I could eat all summer and fall and then sleep until spring, LOL!  Well the DT has a bit of a Spring-y Challenge for you all this month to get you thinking ahead to warmer weather!

Diana Crick is the hostess with the mostess this month and she has challenged us all to create "Windshield Wiper Cards" with a Theme of SPRING!!  You can find the Scor-Pal tutorial for this right HERE.  I'll be adding the DT projects as they get finished so keep checking back for some lovely inspiration!

To Create a Card Front that is larger (5.5 inches) use these dimensions:

-cut 2 pieces of cardstock at 5.5x8.5 inches
-score both pieces (long side against top of scor-pal) at 1.5 and 3 inches
-then just follow the same directions that are on the tutorial to put together

***Winner of the Pretty In Pink Challenge is Robin of Robin's Room!!   Congrats Robin!  Email Diana with your info so she can get your goodies and stamps out to you (Email her after Feb 5--she is in Germany until then)!!****

**Winner of the January Sketch Challenge-Frame Card is Lauren of L.E.M. Photography & Papercrafting! Congrats Lauren! Email Diana for your choice of a Magnolia Stamps!!
