ABC Monday at Catch the Bug!

It's ABC Monday at the Catch the Bug challenge blog. I wanted to make some table treats for Easter and this box die from SU is perfect. I love the curvy top edge and the reverse cut piece makes a perfect handle! I added a little purple sparkly ribbon and attached it with eyelets - easy, easy, easy! I used one of Jodie's Easter collection images partially computer colored and partially colored using my Koh-i-Noor pencils and OMS.


Thanks so much for visiting today! This will be a busy week - Monday night stamping, Tuesday night lapidary class and downline meeting on Thursday morning. I'm thinking I'm missing something, but I'll figure it out when I sit down with my calendar. Tomorrow is dh's first full day as a retired person and I am trying very, very hard not be to jealous.

We had a wonderful day with the kids and grandkids today. They all wanted to celebrate dad/grandpa's retirement and we also had a grand time hiding and finding candy filled eggs. I got some pix and I'll try to put a little slideshow together - you know I can hardly resist these gratuitous grandma moments!
