A Maggie Gatefold

I heard that we're supposed to get another wintry mix tomorrow night.  Seriously?  I love snow and I love winter, for sure, but this last one has really seemed to drag on forever.  I'm kinda done with it, actually, lol.  My kids are so ready for it, too - they were begging me yesterday if they could pretty please wear short sleeves!  So since the Spring has been my inspiration (and come on, who are we kidding - my fantasy!), I wanted to color this Magnolia stamp that my friend Tracy sent me awhile back which I absolutely LOVE!

Here she is!!   Little Miss Tilda - Isn't she ever adorable?  And the way that lamb looks up her?!  You can't just help but say awwww :)  There are three pics - one of the front of the gate fold card, a picture of it opened up, and then the inside of the card:
