Tissue Box Request

 Happy Monday Friends!

Well my annual craft show is over for another year and happy to report it was a GREAT success!  I only do one show a year and it's at our local high school and always on the first Saturday in November.  I've been doing that show for about 15 years now and I'm never disappointed with the attendance & following I've acquired through this show.  They had 158 vendors this year and over 3,000 (yes I said three thousand) people come through the door throughout the day.

Needless to say by the time the day was over I was exhausted and was lucky to get my goodies from the car to the kitchen ... being carried into the crafting cave and put away didn't happen until yesterday LOL.  Anyways, my tissue boxes were a big seller this year and while at breakfast Sunday morning (we always go to Bob Evans on the weekend ... have acquired a group of friends (Bob Evans regulars lol)) and one of the ladies wanted to come to the show but was unable to make it so she ordered a special tissue box cover and coordinating card for a friend of hers.  

The theme she requested was BEACH.  Believe it or not, I had NO beachy paper, SO out came the inks & sponges and I got busy!!  Here's what I came up with ... hope she likes it!

I actually still had this card in my stash so I used it as my inspiration to create the tissue box cover.  It's slightly different one to the other but can still be used as a set I think.

I hope she likes it and I hope you do too!

Doesn't it figure ...

Now that the show is OVER ... my mojo has returned and I can't wait to have tomorrow free to get crafty and create!  LOL  Isn't it always the way . . . . 

Thanks so much for sticking with me through this 'long winded' post! 
I was excited to share my creativity with you today!

Have a GREAT week ahead!

As always . . .
