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 friends, and visitors.
I would like to welcome my 2 newest followers, and thank you for joining me on my crafty journey.
I do hope to see you here as often as your time allows. 
Thank you also to all my loyal friends that regularly visit, and make such wonderful comments.
I very much appreciate them all.

Today I have a Tissue Box I made for the Allsorts Challenge as their challenge this week is anything but a card.
Now I haven't made one of these before so I am quite proud of myself as I have wanted to make one for ages, and chickened out a few times.

I have used some papers and card from my stash for this.
I made the roses on the front the way
Pamellia makes hers.
The leaves were made from a tip of John Lockwood's I heard about but
actually didn't see the demo.
Dies used below.

I do hope you all have a wonderful day what ever you are doing.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY. 

I would like to enter this into the following challenges.

MaryH said...

Amazingly lovely! Hard to believe you've never done one of these! I've not made one either (and probably won't!), but this is so very pretty. Love those gorgeous roses, and of course you've used the SW die to best effect. How pretty this is going to look on your bedside table, or wherever you place it. I wouldn't have had a clue as to where to start with this! TFS & Hugs

Kathleen said...

Absolutely beautiful, love it and very well done on having a go at one, things like this terrify me.

Thank you for joining in our Anything but a card challenge this week at Allsorts.

Oh Wow Jenny !!!! this tissue box is absolutely fabulous, and your flowers (made the Pamellia way, I must go back and remind myself of this technique) are stunning.
Have a lovely day.
Lots of love from Patricia xx

Erika said...

A super tissue box Jenny, I love the ribbon and bling you have used on the front. A lovely colour combo too.
My box straight from the supermarket looks like a very poor cousin to this one. ;)

Hugs Erika. x
