March Madness....and the Easter Bunny will soon be here!

Hellooooo Maggie lovers! March madness is just everywhere and here at Magnolia-licious Highlites we are having our own kind of March Madness. Can you believe that March is more than half way over. Just a few more days to the official first day of Spring.

Have you been enjoying our March Blog Hop? You surely don't want to miss even one entry by the DT for this one.As you know the theme of our HOP is "The Easter Bunny Will Soon Be Here". Create fun/cute packaging, bags and boxes for Easter eggs/treats.

If you've hopped on over here from Patti Jo's blog then your headed in the right direction. If not, please click this link to head back to Magnolia-licious Highlites blog for the right order. From here you're going to hop on over to the extremely talented Sharon's blog.

Let's get the show on the road.....here is my entry for the HOP. I decided to make a Tea Light Card box, but instead of putting tea lights in it, I've used some delicious Easter chocolate eggs. On the front of my card I've used #252 Tilda with Hanging Rabbit from the Butterfly Dreams Collection 2011. She is available right now in the standard size.


I've also used Magnolia papers throughout. The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts, pearls from my stash and the ribbon is retired SU. All my images are stamped and colored on Cryogen White, while my CS is SU and Bazzill.

Here is a closer look at Tilda and her wee bunny!


Inside my card on the left side is a pocket on which I've used two Mini Images...#647 Floral Background and #3031 Tilda as a Shepherd.


Here is a closer look at that small panel...


Behind that panel is a tag which is removable. I used a computer generated poem that I found on the Internet!



Here is the box I created, filled with yummy Butterfinger Chocolate Eggs. On the bottom of the box I have used #268 Little Bunny Tilda. Each of these Mini images are from the Hoppy Easter Collection of 2010. They are all available from Diana right now. I think I used eggs that were too large as they really dwarf Tilda. I left the top of my box open so that the recipient of the card can access the chocolates. I used a piece of Acetate behind the SB Die opening to hold the eggs in.


On the back of my card, for my signature, I used my most resent acquisition, "Stamp Tilda" . Isn't she just so adorable? Then I just hand wrote in that it's 100% original and signed my name. I love the way it turned out.





Well that's it for my portion of the Blog Hop. I hope you're enjoying your journey and getting all kinds of fabulous ideas for your Easter Treats. Don't forget, from here your hopping over to Sharon's blog to see her wonderful creation.
