Inspired by SRO! :)

Rockin’ along with MFT Sketch Challenge #270! (My Favorite Things Challenge & Inspiration blog.)photoThis may be my most literal take on any sketch ever. LOL. πŸ™‚

For this card, I was inspired by the one and only, my friend, Susan R. Opel. Susan literally writes the blog on inspiration, so I find it fitting. β™₯ SRO has an eye for fashion (and other fun) inspired card creations. Check out these examples of Susan’s awesome inspirations: HERE, HERE, and HERE. I mean, Yo! That’s fun. πŸ™‚

Way back in October (?), I was flipping through TV channels late one night, and saw Julianna Margulies on Stephen Colbert. Checkout her spectacular Chevron dress!! πŸ™‚ It stuck in my head, and I told Susan I would just have to make something inspired by it. πŸ˜‰

Technique Tuesday Happysauce :)

I think I would like Happysauce on everything! πŸ™‚ And it starts with another Technique Tuesday Thursday! Be sure to hop over to the TT blog for this week’s scoop!

First up, these cutie little Bird Friends! I just adore these little stamps and I thought I would just go ahead and stack up the cuteness! This was actually a panel I colored up for Day ONE of Kathy Racoosin’s most recent, The Daily Marker 30 Day Color Challenge. I finished it off with some blending and boom: Happysauce πŸ˜‰ hawkins_jill_whats up_WMAck! πŸ™‚ (Bird Friends and Sending Smiles. <3)

hawkins_jill_whats up_00_WMNext up, I did one of my all time favorite things…strips of paper and die cut inlay. I just think it creates such a fun POW with very simple supplies (and scraps! FTW!). πŸ™‚

hawkins_jill_wow_wmI know that I made it, but I still say Wow! πŸ™‚ SO fun! (Clipboard Die & Memo Pad Card die)hawkins_jill_wow_00_wm
