Aa - aaa - achoooooo


It seems to me that no matter which side of the world you're on it's cough and cold time!! We are heading towards Winter and our Northern Hemisphere friends are starting to feel touches of Spring. With so many of my friends - and sadly myself - suffering with sore throats and snuffles I thought it was time to dress up a box of tissues! I found THIS fabulous tutorial over at Splitcoast Stampers to make a re-usable tissue box cover - it was soo easy to do!

I had the perfect image to pop on my cover - this is "Needs Mummy" from Mo Manning (available HERE). I just love his sad little face and soulful expression. I had to make his poor little nose a little bit red too - though it's hard to see here.

The embossing folder I used is from Sizzix - I LOVE these big dots!

Hopefully this will brighten up the sick-room and help chase those nasty lurgies away! And if you're feeling a bit under the weather...

Get Well Soooooooon!

And don't forget to enter my blog candy HERE - I'll be picking a winner sooooon!

Love it, Debbie! I normally hide the tissue box on a shelf under the coffee table, but if I had one like this it'd take pride of place in the middle! :D

Oh My, Debbie!! THis is wonnderful!! How did you make your box? Did you use a template or buy a cardboard or wooden base from the shops? Ive been wanting to try one of these. I love it cos it's not like a card that gets put in a shoebox somewhere and forgotten. Its one of these "useful gifts." lol
