A-Tissue!!!............Bless You!

Good morning guys and gals. Hope everyone is warm and well.
We had snow the other evening, which did settle but had gone by midway through the following morning. Hopefully, that's our moment of Winter over.
Welcome to Teejay. Thank you so much for joining our merry band.

A quicky today as its 11.30pm as I'm typing this, ready to schedule for the morning. A couple of non working days so watching John, catching up with some friends, bidding Nesta bon voyage and a grocery shop in store for me.
Hazel, if only I could slip into Nesta's case but that would take the term "excess baggage" to a whole new degree lol!!! We'll weep and wave but once that first Pina Colada is down her neck, it'll be "Ang who???" 

Now, talking of Nesta, finally, I remember to show you the tissue box cover I made for her a few weeks ago when she was germ ridden. I had a box of B&M tissues (so that maybe the only brand she can refill with now) and this slots over the top.

Cream card
Lilac card
Sue Wilson Orange Blossom Leaves
SB Butterfly Circles
Tonic flower punch
Various green Distress Inks

Not too fancy but it matches her bedding as she has a set featuring lilac hydrangeas so I've tried to make it look hydrangea-ish.
I'm hoping to pick up a set of the orange blossom leaves stamps to match the dies this week. After seeing John demo them last week, I decided they are a "need" not a "want"

Well, that's me yawning and the hot chocolate is cooling so I will bid you adieu for now.

I will be visiting and catching up with your blogs in the next couple of days as some of you have been busy bods again.

Meantime, be good!

Ps.......in my half asleepness (yes, that is a real word in my world) I clicked the wrong date for scheduling so let's try again........doh!


  1. Morning Ang,
    What a pretty tissue box, bet Nesta was thrilled with it.
    Enjoy your days off.

  2. Beautiful Ang! You have so much patience when you build these flowers! I hate having to cut out 5 sets of petals to make a flower and you have cut out a bajillion or so here! I'm sure Nesta loved it. hugs :)

  3. Hello Ang,
    This is beautiful. My colour scheme is cream and aqua if you ever feel the need to continue making these ha ha.
    I'm sure it will take more then one Pina Colada for Nesta to forget you, maybe one and a half!!!

  4. Ang, love your tissue box cover, very pretty. Just think of the catch up you and Nesta will have when she gets back. Xxx

  5. Hi Ang, I have been visiting but unable to leave comments because of an issue, which John has successfully fixed. I knew there was a reason I kept him around ... lol! Super tissue box for Nesta. See you soon! Hugs Christine xx

  6. Hi Ang! Such a nice way to cover up those ugly tissue boxes! Your flowers are always the best! Have a great day.

  7. Hi Ang, this is so pretty, I think I will have to try and have a go at this.

  14. Hi Ang, love this tissue box, not too ott, but just the right amount of decoration and the colours are perfect too!!! Janice xx

  15. Lovely creation Ang, you have made a gorgeous tissue box, fabulous colours too..xx

  16. Aw! What a nice thing to do and love the snot box cover too. (Sorry, Ang, that's what a box of tissues are called in our house) love those little flowers.
    From the tub!

  17. Hi Ang - what a lovely idea! So pretty. And how thoughtful to decorate to match Nesta's decor. Hope you're well and enjoying your couple of days off. Best wishes, Anne

  18. Good morning Ang. What a beautiful job you did with your tissue box. You have turned an ordinary thing into a thing of beauty. Nesta is a lucky lady - she has a treasure to keep in her bedroom. Kleenex boxes can be so unsightly but not this one! Bravo!

  19. What a lovely idea. So pretty.

  20. I could have done with this last week, Ang! What a lovely gift. Somewhere I have some flat tissue box covers waiting to be decorated - they were marketed several years ago by CE. Perhaps they should bring them back.

  21. I like the way you have added the leaves up and over the edges of the box top. Enjoy your time off. hugs Mrs A.

  22. Hi Ang

  24. You are clever! To make Tonic punches look Hydrangaish - brilliant The box is so pretty and such a nice gesture to a close friend who'll admire the thought and skill and also have a little chuckle at having a tissue box cover as a gift!

  25. Hi Ang,
    oooooooooooooo! such a wonderful tissue box, and I love the Hydrangeas they are so wonderful.
    As usual super work of art.
    Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.

  26. Very pretty tissue box and well worth refilling time and time again I'd say.
