MFT Sketch #248

photoMFT Sketch Challenge #248 rolls out today on the My Favorite Things Challenge & InspirationΒ Blog today!

This week’s sketch:MFT_WSC_248Here is my take this week:

hawkins_jill_thank you really_wmKeeping it simple and bold. I enjoy using simply detailed supplies in different ways. The MFT Stitched STAX are really the best dies one can invest in. The possibilities!! πŸ™‚ AND this sentiment is one of my all time favorites. PerfectO! The stitching is the nod to the stars in the sketch.

hawkins_jill_thank you really_00_wmIn my continuing effort to create cards faster (Never fear…I’ll always be very slow too!), I made this second card:

hawkins_jill_fella_wmI’m really enjoy the buildings and little scene pieces in the London Mouse set. But I was neglecting these cute little fellas! Awww…and they are cute! πŸ™‚ Errr, I mean, handsome. πŸ˜‰

MFT Sketch #247 + treats!

photoMFT Sketch Challenge #247 begins its reign on the My Favorite Things Challenge & Inspiration Blog today!

This week’s sketch:MFT_WSC_247Here is my take this week: I rotated and flipped the banner a bit πŸ˜‰

hawkins_jill_just because_wmThis New York die is awesome. πŸ™‚ I’m pining for a Chicago one now. LOL πŸ™‚ I also dig this sketch!

hawkins_jill_just because_00_wmI die cut the skyline and then used the positive and negative cuts as a stencil to spray with Copic markers. Something different. Fun fun! πŸ™‚

I didn’t get my second sketch card made yet this week (September is a bit cookoo around here!), but I thought I’d share these cute little treats.

hawkins_jill_treats_wmQuick and simple. I thought I’d attach all the clothespins differently, to illustrate the options.

hawkins_jill_batty treats_wmI think this bat one is my fave! πŸ™‚ But these ghosts below are my favorite images in this set. So cute!

hawkins_jill_boo treats_wmIt would be really easy to take these to the next level and add some twine and coloring. I also think some sparkle would be fun! But I knew the sparkle wouldn’t photograph well. πŸ˜‰ I wanted to keep mine quick, simple and oh so fun! πŸ™‚

hawkins_jill_meow treats_wmI do love fall and all it brings! Treats! πŸ™‚

This is my second entry for the AEIβ™₯U Challenge this month: Non-White Card Base. I had a dental appointment this morning, so I had a lot of anxiety to craft through last night! πŸ™‚ It’s funny, but true! Ha!

You can see my first go at it HERE. <—When my sewing machine rebelled. πŸ™‚

Here’s my other card:

hawkins_jill_oh happy day_AEwmI enjoy these cute light bulbs! In hindsight, I would have done them all in white watercolor instead of the mix I used, but alas. πŸ™‚

I’m happy I was able to participate in the AEIβ™₯U Challenge this month with two cards! Just needed to ink these old friends up and take ’em for a spin.

Challenge 28

Here’s a few more previous Avery Elle projects (if you’re bored): here, here, here, here, here and here!

the day my sewing machine got REAL mad…

I have been waiting years for my sewing machine to get angry with me, because I’m always sewing paper. Truth is, I’m not sure it’s ever seen fabric!? Long story short, it got REAL mad at me while making this card last night. Luckily, it didn’t go as awry as I thought it would. However, I’m not entirely pleased with its behavioral outcome either. Oh well…sometimes you just gotta roll. πŸ˜‰

TheΒ AEIβ™₯U Challenge this month is a Non-White Card Base!! Well, Kraft is like peanut butter to my jelly, so I went straight there. Haaaa!

Here’s my card…

hawkins_jill_thank you_AEwmhawkins_jill_thank you_AE_00_wmI’m glad I was able to participate in the AEIβ™₯U Challenge this month! I love challenges and I like to partake and support them. πŸ™‚
