Hugs!

Here’s my take on MFT Sketch Challenge #314 and MFT Color Challenge #60!

photo I arrived home late from a school meeting last night, but still wanted to make something. Our household has been under the weather, and I was behind on creating anything! Ahhh! πŸ™‚

I was itching to inlay something, and of course, the strips of card stock is always a fave of mine to do!

I wasn’t sure how it would look with the strips on an angle, but I like it! It’s getting mailed today!hawkins_jill_hugs_wm

I rotated the sketch, so the HUGS is the big rectangle, and the nod to the then vertical piece, is my stitching. I couldn’t decide what to do for that element, but I think the stitching turned out fun, albeit a little off from where I intended. Ha! I held my breath as I started stitching, and as I did that little piece at the bottom. I wanted them aligned, and I wasn’t sure where my needle left off! Oh silliness πŸ™‚

Supplies from My Favorite Things!

I’d Fight Zombies…and Winner! :)

I’m popping back in with a couple new cards using one of my new favorite stamp sets from Technique Tuesday!

hawkins_jill_zombies_wmThis card uses the new set, You Aren’t Normal stamp set from TT. Seriously, it is awesome! I am itching to make more cards with this! πŸ™‚ I also used, Undeniably Smitten stamp set.

This sentiment below, is likely my favorite from You Aren’t Normal set. I used it so simply here, because it just rocks alone! πŸ™‚

hawkins_jill_not-normal_00_wmI could use this repeatedly ❀

You Are Loved

I thought I’d pop in with some newΒ  Paper Smooches fun to share!

hawkins_jill_you-are-loved For this card, I used the new PS You Are Loved die and the SUPER stinkin’ cuteΒ  Courteous Cuties and Courteous Cuties 2. I also used the Snow Drifts die for him to sit on. Oh my word, how cute are these critters!!?hawkins_jill_you-are-loved_This cute turtle below I colored up straight away! I super love him! πŸ™‚ I added him to the new For You Tag die, and popped him on a quick card, with a little stitching. πŸ™‚ I colored both of these critters with Copic Markers. hawkins_jill_turtley_wm I also used the new Courteous Cuties Icons dies. I had to color every critter, and die cut them all out. I think I’ve used them all now? So, so cute! πŸ™‚hawkins_jill_turtley_00_wm
