Tissue box get well....

When I was looking for the jigsaw pieces for Monty's birthday card, I spotted this rather strange little cut on the My Community cartridge. It's a oval shaped label, and I cut it out just to see what it looked like, I thought it could be a useful shape to stamp sentiments on......

I then thought that it looked just like the opening in a box of tissues, here's what I came up with. The tissue is a real one, manipulated a bit and folded into shape. The sentiment is stampin up. Scallop card base and candi by Craftwork Cards



We have friends staying with us for a couple of weeks, so I am taking a bit of a holiday myself, to sightsee with them, and do touristy things, but I will be sneaking to my crafty desk whenever I can. I'll be back with the Flexxmarker winner tomorrow

See you then

what a darling card ... I really like the way the tissue showing just like a real tissue box. Very cute. Love the colors too. It would sure cheer me up if I had the sniffles.

This looks like it needs to be pinned! *wink*
