May i have a tissue please?

Yes, i need a tissue... to wipe up the tears of joy i have in my heart and soul... i am so THANKFUL and BLESSED to have such WONDERFUL, full of HEART sisters and friends here in blogland! since my posting of "Make a child smile..." yesterday, i've already summoned up a few lovely ladies that are so giving in their hearts, that i'm very overwhelmed with the love they have to "give" this holiday season, that i just tear everytime i receive an email for that cause... THANK YOU ladies for joining hands with me this year... There is lots of time if you'd like to join us as well... check out the post at the very top for all the deets you need... THANKS!

So, how was your weekend gang?!? hope fine and dandy and you got to fill in some craft time.... i did... with a awesome craft session on Friday til 530 the next AM and then my usual craft hours Saturday... the weekend was very productive... not sure if i'm quite ready to share just yet though still need the finishing touches...

Monday means another challenge at Lollipop Crafts! this one will get you singing your ABCs... LOL... ok, maybe not quite but it is an ABC challenge... Challenge #49 - ANYTHING BUT A CARD... so NO cards this week.... get creative and and make some 3D projects or scrap layouts, or even alter something... anything but a card!

We are sponsored this week by the wonderful Robyn's Fetish and you'll want to hit up the LC blog to check out what awesome prize is up for grabs.... and of course to see what the T Team have created for you this week...

i've been seeing lots of tissue box cover projects around blogland and have finally pushed myself to make one.... (hahaha, guess i have my tissue)
tadduh!! i'll admit i was a bit stumped on how to dress up my tissue cover... the paper i chose to use was very busy as is, so in the end i opted to not decorate it anymore... i'm finally using the CUTE Mei Lin stamp from Sister Stamps... isn't she cute cute cute?!? this paper line from Pebbles Inc was great to use with Mei Lin, along with my MS double arch border punch... embossed the black CS with Darice swirls embossing folders and nesties to layer the image... there's a hint of stickles which you may be able to see in the pix below... i had some scrap DP that i used on the cover so i used it to make a pocket tissue holder (something else i've been waiting to try)...
here i just wanted to show you that i kept the rest of the box cover plain... but as you can see, the paper is pretty colorful already... again i added strips of the MS double arch border punch around the cover....
here's the close up of Mei Lin.... can you see the touch of sparkle on her?? it's in the mids of the flowers in her hair and on the yellows of her outfit.... oh and on her pinwheel you may have noticed a brad... the green part of the pinwheel originally came out a little darker than wanted, so i stamped an extra pinwheel to re-color and adhered it to the original using a brad... now, the pinwheel can actual be moved... hehehe, love it when i can make something out of an error!

dont' forget to gather up all the deets on the LC blog... get the challenge, prize info and see all the fantastic creations by the DT... and then, join us!
