Magnolia-licious Challenge Pretty In Pink

Making cards for the challenges has been a challenge with the construction of our home.  I really want to craft so I try hard to get some done and this one is very last minute.  We are moving quickly with our home as the insulation, sheetrock and taping, windows and electric, heating and cooling will all be done within 3 weeks.  I have to pick out all the flooring and wall colors now, oh I love all this decorating! I will share photographs as it progresses.

My image is from the new Sakura collection Tilda Picking Carrots and I colored her with Distressed re-inkers. 

While you enter your card into the challenge, you could leave a comment on the challenge blog and all of the DT blogs to win a "Surprise" package from Diana.

I hope you enter our Magnolia-licious Challenge PRETTY IN PINK so you can win and also comment to win more!  

Here are a few photos of the house. We have the can lights in and the wiring done. It is hard to see the layout at this point but to me just to have this done is exciting.

My husband and two sons are doing all the work, I am so grateful for my talented men.
Have a great day

  11. Unbelievable that you all are doing all the work yourselves, but WOW...how impressive to build you your castle :) That really does make it a home more so than anything. I might have missed this but are you rebuilding on the same land? I assumed you would, but wasn't sure. Just checking for my address book. :D
