Hi and welcome to cardsarus blog spot My name is Jenny Lawrence and I live in Kent. My dear and wonderful husband Tony passed away in March 2019 We had been married for 36 years. I also lost my first Husband to the big C when I was quite young. I have 3 children and 3 stepchildren. 12 Grandchildren and 5 Great Granddaughters and 3 Great Grandsons. I have been card making for about 25 years. I have made things all my life as my Mum and Grand Mother taught me lots of hobbies. I have made my own clothes, knitted garments, hand embroidered items of clothing, and crocheted items too. I love to bake my own cakes as well.

Hi, and welcome to all my very talented, and craft loving friends.

It's the first of the month and time for another challenge over at
The theme this time is
 Anything But A Card 
So I thought I would make a Tissue Box for my DT work.

The images used are Hunkydory a free set with Hunkydory membership you just pay the postage.
I really loved the gorgeous Hare and the art work.
I used a combo of Hobby House pearls and Tonic Nuvo Pearl Drops on the top of the box.
The lovely lace came from the Works back last year.
I make these Tissue Box Bases from the left over Box Board I use for my 8"x8" size Boxes I make for special cards so I think it can be classed as  Snippets so I will be joining the Pixies Snippets Playground with this. 

Please pop over to the Challenge Blog to see the gorgeous DT work there are some stunning creations.

Thank you so much for your precious time.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY. 

I would like to enter this into the following challenges.

Oh Jenny, this is utterly gorgeous! Perfect use of snippets so no worries there. I love this touch of Spring and a tissue box is such a lovely change from a card.

I saw in your comment that you were headed to see the doctor about your sore foot. My heart really went out to you - here's hoping you have less pain now. I swear by some shoes you can buy on Amazon - the only ones I could wear when the dreaded G hit - and even then it was no picnic. They're here:
