I masked and stamped this cutie, colored with Copic markers, and then fussy cut the edge, so he would hang off a little bit. I adhered the colors of the challenge, and did a little fussy/trickery die cutting to pull the whole thing together. šŸ˜‰hawkins_jill_otter-bday_wm

Just a little something different to try. šŸ™‚

Supplies from My Favorite Things, including the new BB Otterly Love You. So stinkin’ cute!

Have a great week!

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! šŸ™‚

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

hawkins_jill_hugs_00_wm

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 šŸ™‚

Anywho, there you have it! Thanks for stopping by!

Eye Like You

Here’s my take on MFT Sketch Challenge #311. Always a delight to have a good read over at the MFT Card Challenges blog!photo

I wanted to play along, and but had to be expeditious! Even making just the quickest of cards, is such a great way to end the day!hawkins_jill_eye-like-you hawkins_jill_eye-like-you_00_wmI just masked some circles for these little guys, and then did some quick stamping. This is a set that will get inked often for kiddo’s birthday parties! šŸ™‚

hawkins_jill_lean_00_wm hawkins_jill_lean_wm

This card ended up pretty simple in the end and nothing like I sat down to do. I always think that’s funny! šŸ™‚

I die cut both the die cuts I used, and I think the result was good! šŸ™‚ My stitching went a little wrong, but I just added more to make it work. Ha!

MFT Challenges, Another Twofer

Here’s my take on MFT Sketch Challenge #308 and Color Challenge #56! My Favorite Things Challenge & Inspiration Blog <<<<<<.photo Once again, I’m able to combine the two!

hawkins_jill_dinomiteThis little dino from You’re Rawr-some, is a little cutie! I especially love the T-Rex and his sentiment. I can’t wait to use him next! šŸ™‚ I used Zig Clean Color pens to watercolor her, and Distress ink for the background I masked off.hawkins_jill_dinomite_00I wanted to use this color combo, but was thinking Holiday card. Aren’t we all?! <3! But then, I took a right turn and made a chicky dino card instead. There is some sparkle (that never photographs) in the tree/plant/hearts, that in person, adds just the right touch.Ā  IĀ  had to cut off the grass I was originally using for the sentiment. It was too *all up in the dino’s grill*. LOL šŸ™‚

MFT Sketch 281

Here’s my take on MFT Sketch Challenge #281 (and inadvertently,Ā  MFT Color Challenge #45)! These challenges come from the My Favorite Things Challenge & Inspiration Blog!photoI stamped and practiced coloring a bunch of unicorns this past week, so used one of those. šŸ™‚

hawkins_jill_wishing unicorns_wmMy son picked the colors for me to use as I was coloring along. I wasn’t sure at first, but in the end, I think he might have a secret color talent! LOL!! šŸ™‚

When I put this all together later that night, I realized it was the Color Challenge colors! WHAT are the chances!!!? So anyway, throwing it in that pool too. šŸ™‚

hawkins_jill_wishing unicorns_00_wm The sparkle, which never photographs, is really what make these unicorns POP! Too bad it isn’t reflected in the photo. A pretty basic card, but fun to give to someone! šŸ™‚
