Sweetheart box

Good Morning!  I hope you all had a great weekend.  I had a pretty relaxing one which was very much needed after the horrific week last week.  I do hope those kind of days at work will be less and less, ugh!  But that's why I posted so little last week, too much stress makes it very difficult to be creative.  However, I printed off the week's digis and packed up my Copics and colored while I waited for Hollyanne who had dance class on Friday nights.  Have the images ready to go made it so easy to put my cards together yesterday.

Well, I don't have a card today - I made a treat box featuring a new digi image from Sweet n Sassy....

I used a box from Lindsay's Stamp Stuff - I added the oval cut out to the box before I cut it.  It is an svg file, so with SCAL and Cricut - this box was ready in minutes!  Added some conversation hearts, a ribbon and cute image and viola! instant gift.

Now this little cutie is Melanie Mouse, she's available in the normal b/w digi format and well as one of the new colored digis.  She was so much fun to color and the twinkle in her eyes will make anyone smile.

Card stock:  Neenah Classic Crest
Paper:  Sweet Romance (Deja' Views)
Copics:  E30, E34, E37, R27, R29, RV02, RV10
Tools:  svg Gable Box (LSS), SCAL, Cricut, Scor-Tape, cello bag
Embellishments:  white satin ribbon

I am entering this into this week's JUGs template challenge.  Hope you like it!!  Thanks so much for stopping by.
