Here’s my card for the week: hawkins_jill_good luck love_wmI mean: Really. Too too! I thought the stitching added the finishing touch. But you know you’re crazy when you are stitching on a piece of card stock that is less than 1/8″ wide. 😉hawkins_jill_good luck love_00_wmMy Happy Panda card was made with the following supplies by My Favorite Things:

Today! MFT Sketch #232

photoSketch Challenge #232 on My Favorite Things Challenge & Inspiration is rockin’ out today. You know this team made fabulous, so be sure to go SEE them all!

Here is this week’s sketch:MFT_WSC_232Here’s my take: It’s a wee bit twisted up. It happens 🙂

hawkins_jill_have a spiffy_wmI think I’d inlay these circles if I made this again though ;). Go figure.

hawkins_jill_have a spiffy_00_wmI warned about the Abstract Cover Up! I’m going to have to hide it for awhile 🙂

I likely won’t get an extra card made each week this month, but I managed for today. It’s a simple one, but oh so fun! And don’t these kind always take awhile anyway? Ha 🙂hawkins_jill_miss you0_wmThese Happy Pandas are fun little guys to send in the mail. 🙂

Sweet Sunday Sketch: #272

Hope your weekend has gone swimmingly! It’s time for the Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge!! #272!

Here’s the sketch for this week:

Here is my card for the week:

hawkins_jill_you're my person_wmOh Happy Panda! 🙂 This font is a favorite of mine too. Fabulous set!

hawkins_jill_you're my person_00_wm

These Stitched Basic Edges get a lot of use. Endless versatility.

I stamped this sentiment using the coveted MISTI tool. I saved up for many a months and finally gave in to ordering one. (No help from this group of Sweet Sunday Stampers to resist it! Enablers. Geesh. 😉 ) I haven’t used it but this once (so far), and I must say for the ability to stamp this sentiment repeatedly, making it flawlessly solid, I like it a lot. 😉

Be sure to check out the Sweet Sunday Sketch Blog for all the different takes! I love all the diversity of styles each week. These ladies are oh so fun! 🙂
