My project for the hop is a Snowman Tissue Box Cover. I printed two sheets of pattern paper from the Imagine's Mr. Frosty cartridge. I love the patterns on this cartridge.

Unfortunately, I don't remember where I received the pattern for the tissue box cover. I used the Gypsy to cut out the shapes of the tissue box.

The box is cut out in two pieces and is easily put together.

On this side I used the snowman from the Snow Friends Seasonal Cartridge.
I lightly inked the edges of all of the images so the image would pop out.

This image is from the Winter Frolic Cartridge.

Smiley Faces for both the image and phrase

I used Winter Frolic for this image and the phrase.

This box is going on my desk at work.

The Blog Candy that I'm offering is 4 yards of Twine in assorted colors. This would be great to use on your Christmas cards and other projects. To win, please leave a comment and a way for me to contact you. I would love it if you would become a follower as well. I will use to pick a winner on Monday.

And now on to Janice's blog
