Craft US Crazy - challenge 2

Hello everyone - well it's time already for the Craft Us Crazy challenge number 2.

Our first challenge had an amazing amount of participants with amazing talent showcased!! This week's challenge is to complete a project using a WINTER theme. Our fantastic sponsor for this week's challenge is MELJEN'S DESIGNS. They have some of the most adorable digi images. For the entire month of February we have two terrific sponsors, THE CUTTING CAFE and STAMPS ALIVE.
Now my project wasn't a card this time but something that most of us have seemed to have needed over the last couple of months and that is - a tissue box.

 So this is using a Meljen's Designs beautiful digi stamp called Yeti Cocoa - Isn't he the cutest.  He is coloured in with pro markers on a Spellbinders nestie.  Finished off with some distress ink.  The papers are from The Nitwits collection, as well as the little hearts which I used crackle accents on and then Vintage photo distress ink on the top.  Added a few buttons with some string threaded through to finish.

Tha actual box I made myself and cut out the little opening with an oval nestie.  The words Winter sniffles were cut out on my Cricut.
So, I hope you like my creation and that you are enjoying our challenges so far.
(Sorry I'm a little late posting - I have no kitchen and so all my kitchen things are all over the house and I can barely move in my craft room!!)
Hope to see you all at the challenge blog
