you make me…

hawkins_jill_you make me_Sprinkles. I love sprinkles. They are their own party. I’d put them on everything–and now, I’ve put them in a card πŸ™‚ My husband would say “it was just a matter of time..”. Ha! You Make Me Laugh!! πŸ˜‰

Paper Smooches stamp masked (ahhhhh…PS sentiments! πŸ™‚ ) and this LYB die cut filled with sprinkles…nonpareils to be precise. (You should hear the fun shaking sound it makes!)

Holiday 2014: PC&S December

hawkins_jill_2014 xmas__

Happy Christmas! Oh wait, it’s not even Thanksgiving yet! πŸ™‚ Let’s hope I get cards made for Thanksgiving…My gratitude list is truly endless.

This card had the good fortune of being published in the December Issue of Paper Crafts & Scrapbooking’s “Creative Sketch”. Just when you get stumped for new ideas, BAM! πŸ™‚ PC&S Inspiration. People make really good stuff. πŸ˜‰

I used my favorite #’s and “Joy Flair” …love me some flair! (“…make the minimum 37 pieces of flair?!”, Office Space. Hilarious!)

Happy…um…Holiday Season! Yes, let’s go with that! πŸ™‚

Thank you for stopping by…your comments are always so kind!

laugh & love…

jill hawkins_laugh rainbow_Back to laughs… πŸ™‚ I thought I’d share the card I’m sending my Grannie for her 91st birthday Thursday! 91 years young–so true for my sprightly Grannie πŸ™‚

I love this rainbow die from Paper Smooches, and the bonus is you can make several cards at once, mixing it up. The one above is my favorite! It was my third (off white–getting crazy!) & last (so far). I was playing around with how I liked the arrangement best…I definitely like the sentiment engaged in the rainbow πŸ™‚

These two cards below were #1 and #2, given to friends this past weekend πŸ™‚ What fun!

Oh, and I’m going to include this for the Paper Smooches SPARKS Challenge this week–Anything Goes!

that sucks…

hawkins_jill_that sucks_Mega high last post, to low this post… I felt this card was fitting, due to the recent news of Paper Crafts & Scrapbooking Magazine ceasing publishing after February. Not cool. Good people losing jobs they love and do so well. An AWESOME magazine. Incredible pool of talent. ack 😦 More on a future date.

Tomorrow I’ll get back to :). For now, a πŸ™‚ : This is a fun stamp set by Paper Smooches πŸ™‚

Walkin’ on Sunshine…

Super duper duper exciting news today…I am a winner in the Paper Crafts & Scrapbooking Magazine’s World Card Making Day contest!! I screeched some very high pitched squeals and proceeded to eek… A LOT. πŸ™‚ I’m over-the-top-thrilled about this awesome news!!! (understatement.) HUGE thanks to PC&S Magazine for all this happy!

Below is my card …just kidding! I can’t show you silly goose πŸ˜‰ April 2015 PC&S issueΒ  peeps (“Thanks” category). It’ll surely be fun to see all the winning cards!

I’m sharing a card, nonetheless. I like the second generation stamping shadow on a bold sentiment…I would like to try it with these diamonds too, but I was too far along and afraid I’d botch it! πŸ™‚ I’ll be trying that soon.hawkins_jill_i like you_

 

Many Thanks for popping by…walkin’ on sunshine

You Are So Totally…

hawkins_jill_so totally cool_Sometimes you look back at cards you’ve made and, let’s be honest, gag. Others you still enjoy! Even if now, you might do something a little different, perhaps. That’s the case with this card. But overall, I love the look of this layered stamping and pigment inks. Even if now, I see my stamping is a wee bit wonky. πŸ™‚
