Smarties Holder and Mini Challenge

Hello all and Happy Monday (aka Martin Luther King, Jr. Day). Today is ABC (Anything But a Card) day over at Catch the Bug.

So, I made a Smarties Holder! These make GREAT little gifts and they cost practically nothing (especially since I keep Smarties on hand for Bean).

I'm using Ava (Cupcake), colored with Copics and Prismas, glaze, and a little fuzzy ribbon. Super easy to put together! I got the tutorial HERE.

Here's a side view just to give you an idea of exactly what it looks like.

Also, all this week, there are mini challenges over at Catch the Bug to continue the 1 YEAR Birthday celebration! Today, the mini is: BLUE & WHITE with a BIRTHDAY theme (NOTE: my ABC fits the theme...but I HAD to throw in a little pink icing). TWO great prizes up for grabs on this one!! Check out the challenge blog for more deets.

How cute Lola! What a great way to put a little treat right with a card. Thanks so much for sharing the tutorial with us so we can make them too!

Your coloring on little Ava is beautiful and your shading is perfect! The glossy accents/Diamond glaze is such a nice touch on the icing!

Lola, this is very cute. That's a great idea to give a young one just to let them know you're thinking of them. Hope things are going well for you. Hugs, dj
