Big fan of the Awesome. πŸ™‚

hawkins_jill_awesome_wmKept this pretty simple by just blocking some card stock and die cutting it. You could also probably use a marker to color different shades. I like the crispness of this style though. πŸ™‚ hawkins_jill_awesome_00_wmPaper Smooches supplies: Awesome die

I’m playing along with the April Paper Smooches Challenge! Black and White with a POP of color! πŸ™‚ Dig this challenge!Β  I had a couple more ideas, so let’s hope I find time before month’s end. It’s already Mid-April?!

MFT Sketch #275

Here’s my take on MFT Sketch Challenge #275! (My Favorite Things Challenge & Inspiration blog.)photoAlmost a literal take…almost πŸ™‚ hawkins_jill_even though_wmI stamped the flowers with watered down Distress Inks. Kind of a fun-little-something-different. Then I watercolored the background by mixing distress colors. I must get my hands on that Twisted Citron Distress Pad. πŸ˜‰

Brain Dump :)

Popping in today with a card that makes me laugh! πŸ™‚

Have you seen Technique Tuesday‘s planner stamps? I think they are so stinkin’ fun! I want to use them all! πŸ™‚ Check them out HERE. Though I am currently planner-less, I am working them into my cards. This one cracks me up. Hard. πŸ˜‰

hawkins_jill_brain dump_wmThe second I saw Brain Dump, I knew I had to work that in ASAP. ❀

hawkins_jill_brain dump_00_wmI used the planner stamp set, Yes I Can! Such a fun set!! I also used Bird Friends along with the Memo Pad Card Die. Yes, I use this die set A LOT. πŸ™‚

Technique Tuesday has a bunch of fun new April goodies to check out!

MFT Sketch #274

Here’s my take on MFT Sketch Challenge #274! (My Favorite Things Challenge & Inspiration blog.)photoI shrunk, shifted, and rotated the square portion of the sketch. I guess in the end, this was a loose take! πŸ™‚ Haaaa!

hawkins_jill_hello_00_wmI decided I need more ‘Hello’ cards to send, so I went with that πŸ™‚hawkins_jill_hello_wmMy card is made with supplies at My Favorite Things.

Technique Tuesday! :)

Hello all! Phew! I’ve been MIA! πŸ™‚ It was weird to not create any cards for nearly a week?! We spent a lot of our Spring Break time visiting family. Loved it! Now, I’m getting back to it! Hooray!

Onward to the exciting news!! I have the super awesome pleasure of joining theΒ Technique Tuesday Creative Team!! What fun for me to work with products I ❀ ! Plus, Teri Anderson. Enough said. πŸ™‚ #terirocks

Annnnnd today is April release day for Technique Tuesday, so I thought I would share a project using one of the new little owl stamps: Proud Owl. There is a new owl each month! Love me some owls!! (The price point on these makes them irresistible! πŸ™‚ )

hawkins_jill_SO proud_wmI stamped the background with the Mom’s Day set. It says Favorite Son. Because I can say that. πŸ˜‰

hawkins_jill_SO proud_00_wmI loosely watercolored this guy with ink. I quite enjoy the way it turned out and I’m looking forward to trying this some more. I get all cookoo about trying to control watercolor, which if you ask me, is an oxymoron. I’m getting in the groove of just letting it rip! πŸ™‚ So much better!

Be sure to head over to the Technique Tuesday and check out ALL the new release there!! I’ll have more cards coming soon!

Thanks for stopping by & HUGE thanks to Teri and Technique Tuesday for having me along for the ride!!Β  πŸ™‚
