Happy House Mouse Monday Everyone!   

Our challenge this week is BOXES OR BAGS, sponsored by the Cutting Cafe, for awesome digital images.   As you can see, I did it AGAIN!   Two!   I just get carried away.   🙂

The first box is a digital download from the Cutting Cafe with an acetate window on the top of the box.  This box is filled with Jelly Belly jelly beans….mmmm.

And the coordinating HM card.

I thought this inside sentiment was perfect to go with the Happy Hopper Itty Bit eating jelly beans with a spoon!
My second box, also from the Cutting Cafe, has a closed lid…

And, although the lid may be plain, the chocolates inside the box are NOT!!  I used the miniature candy bar labels also from the Cutting Cafe.

  1. Oh Mary! Im sooo loving the Jellybean box and card combo creation. Ya know, Im a HUGE Jellybean chick! Your take is soooo CUTE, so bright and so happy. I love it. Oh and those HM candy wrappers are just super duper adorable and creative and yummy looking and colored so beautifully and really-just send all these to me-ok? … my address is: 123 main st… LOL

  2. Stacy SCS Twinshappy says:

    So so sweet! Oh I love them both.. infact the bunny might be even cutier.. ACK… I know I can’t believe I said it either. lol So fun both of them and wonderful coloring. These are great Easter gift ideas.

  3. So cute, so sweet, so lovely,…. just so perfect!!!!!! Great!!


  4. Your work amazes me every single time. YOu bring a smile to my face when I come visit and inspire me. Lisa L.

  5. OMG these are so cute! I love jelly bellys also! Very clever saying to match the bunny, so cute!

  6. Wow these are both ever so cute! I love the bright colors on the jellybean box and the chocolates from the other box look so delicious!

    Great job,

  7. Amazing — just amazing as always. And, I’m glad you made two. They are just so so cute!!!!

  8. Yowza…these both ROCK! I especially love that jelly bean one with the bright colors…I wanna reach through my monitor and gobble it up!! And the little mice on the chocolate wrappers are too stinkin’ cute!!! These put such a smile on my face!

  9. Two fantastic boxes. Love the colours, papers and the luxurious look of the red and turquoise one – but there again I just love Jelly beans just as much as that adorable little Happy Hopper attacking his pile with a spoon. Love them both.
    hugs Heather xx

  10. OH WOW, so much detail. The cards are so cute (love the jelly bean paper)but the boxes are brilliant. The window box for the jellybeans is great, how much would you pay in a shop for a box like that? And the chocolate wrappers are so lovely. I can tell you REALLY enjoyed this challenge.
    Take care & keep smiling
