hawkins_jill_bye_wmI thought it fitting to use some of my most favorite* MFT products on this Sketch card. (More on *this below.) I layered the frame several times, using the After Midnight, along with some Smooth White and some Razzle Berry for POP! πŸ™‚

hawkins_jill_pretty darn_wmThe Amazing stamp set is well used here πŸ™‚

hawkins_jill_pretty darn_00_wmI had to bust out the Proof Positive Cover Up. One of my all time MFT faves!

I made a second card with this combo: Winter light is not my photography friend. 😦

hawkins_jill_thanks_wmI thought this wonky window action would be fun. And the little Alphas from the LLD Bottle Cap Letters set are a fabulous size! πŸ™‚ I went LLD all over this card. πŸ˜‰

hawkins_jill_thanks_00_wmI quite enjoy this color combo! πŸ™‚

The Final Sweet Sunday Sketch

Today begins the new Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge #300. It is also the very last Sweet Sunday Sketch. Dang. I did not enjoy typing that. 😦 *sniff*

The Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge was started by Karen Giron and has been around for 6+ years. What a lovely group of ladies to hang with. ❀

I am so thankful to my sweet, crafty friend Jodi, for asking me along, and to Karen for being so very welcoming and freaking funny! I am so cookoo over these girls talents!

I then, had the pleasure of “meeting” the whole team, and…They. Are. Fabulous. It’s great that everyone brings their own style every week. I so dig that. In the short time I’ve been along, I’ve had so much fun. We can have complete conversations speaking in #hashtags. It is so silly funny, I find myself laughing at my screen. Often.

I am going to miss these ladies every week. They have all been so welcoming to me as a late comer to their small group, and I truly appreciate their inky warmth. πŸ˜‰

Be sure to click over to the Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge Blog post to read more about it. I started reading Karen’s post and had to stop. I will definitely be hopping over to read it today. 😦

Without further adieu, here is the final sketch:

Here is my final Sweet Sunday Sketch card:

hawkins_jill_let it snow_00_wm(This stinker was so oddly challenging to photograph.)

I think these little dies to the Winter Wonderland set are so fun on their own. You get double duty from your die sets this way! πŸ™‚hawkins_jill_let it snow_wmI made a quick tag (& added a little sparkle!) with some of my remaining die cuts. Have I mentioned my love of the Sketched Chevron Background? I think I’ve used it on just about everything since it arrived in my house. LOL πŸ™‚
