Tissue Tissue, I got conned!

Good morning everyone hope you are all well. Can't say I'm enjoying the frost much, it causes havoc at my household. As we all have a car it's like a millitary operation planning who's going to be off to work first in the mornings so which car needs to be last on the drive. Anyone remember the sitcom Butterflies with Wendy Craig when all the family used to drive out one at a time then back in again, well that's us lol only when it's frosty and no-one else is up,and you aint planned, you're on your own scraping four cars off and moving them one at a time, before you can go anywhere!
Well I had a fab afternoon last Saturday afternoon  over at LOTV. They had another fun day launching their new stamps and had lots going on. I booked in with Bev Rochester for a class with distress inks and thoroughly enjoyed it
 (daughter buying me the distress inks for crimbo.... can't wait!)
There were some lovely ladies that I met and didn't realize I was actually following one of them till I was reading her post,  so Hello Suzie.
Well here we are on another Friday and that means another challenge over at Totally Papercrafts and this week it's the turn of the lovely Cathy to host and her chosen theme for the week is
'Anything Chrismasy but a Card'
This weeks fab sponsor is
The prize will be two stamps of the winners choice
How fab is that!
Oh no me thinks, I only do cards..... So I had to put on mi thinking cap
and here's what I came up with.

A wee tissue box. When my daughter saw it she said
'Oh Mum, we have to have a present at work for the patients on Christmas Day and these would be perfect, will you make some for me to give out'
Ok said me stupidly, how many do you want hun,
Oh.... mmmm 30, ok, thanks!!!!
OMG, do I let myself in for it or what.
So at the moment it's like a factory, but my youngest is helping and to be fair they really are easy, just fiddly when you decorate them. So I may put a pic on when I have them all finished!
If anyone wants the measurements just let me know and I'll pop a pic on.
Don't they make darling little pressies.
Base - white card
Papers - Nitwits, for LOTV,
Stamp - Sugar Nellie, which I won from Cathy (thank you, love it) coloured with copics and glittered with lots of sparkly glamour dust.
Holly die - Marianne
Whiff of Joy - Heart Banner
Magnolia - fence die
Pearl hearts - My Crafty Heart
Sentiment - LOTV
Enjoy your day whatever you're doing.
