Magnolia - Tissue Boxes

Oh my!!! I feel like its been forever since I have done a post! Esp. with my beloved magnolias!! I have been so busy with thing the last few weeks. This week I have been busy putting together a workshop that I am having on Friday at my house. They are so much work, sometimes I ask myself WHY???   One of things we are making are Tissue Box covers. They are so adorable. So my daughter saw one and she immediately said she wanted one for her teacher...and her teacher last year. I said, "ok...they're $5 bucks each" she said...ok, then ran into her room. I hear her holler...mom, is $9 dollars ok?? I said sure. So she came out and counted out 9 bucks and 75 cents...too funny. Of course, I didn't take her money!! But it was cute that she was willing to pay some big bucks for them!



Edwin with lights is colored with Copic Markers.  Sneaky Tilda is colored with Distress Inks.  You can pick up both of these stamps  from the Magnolia-licous store HERE. The seal is from Catslife Press.  All the papers are from Close to my Heart. The ribbon is also Close to my Heart.  You can't really see it in the pictures but I added stickles to the Seals and to the lights and present.  I got the tutorial from Splitcoast. It's super easy, especially if you have a Scor-Pal  (who Magnolia-licous's very own, Diana Crick created!!) It's fabulous!

Well it is getting late and I am beat! Don't forget to check out my BLOG CANDY!! It closes this Saturday!!!!!!!! It was for my 100th follower, but somehow I have managed to pick up 88 more followers since I posted it 3 weeks ago. So....if I end up hitting 200, I'm going to do another drawing for something else! ;-)  Also, if the linky isn't working right...(sorry my first time using it) just let me know in the comments. I am going to go in order and assign numbers so everybody is included!! :-)

Challenges:
Bunny Zoe Crafts - Christmas - anything but a card
Lexi Creations - Christmas - Traditional colors
