Happy Fourth!

Happy holiday weekend, USA! Thought I’d use some fun Technique Tuesday stamps and some quick, loose watercoloring to make a festive USA card. 🙂

hawkins_jill_oh hello_wmThis little cutie will be fun to send in the mail!

hawkins_jill_oh hello_00_wmI used the Technique Tuesday sets Beary Sweet, and Bravo, and the Hometown Alpha dies. I used a little flag I have in my cupcake topper stash. Once again, baking meets card making. 🙂 Love this little bear and alpha set!

Be sure to check out the Technique Tuesday site for the new July release!! I’ll be sharing some cards soon with the latest fun! 🙂

Thanks for stopping by! Have an awesome and safe Fourth of July, USA friends!

Beary Best

Busted out some of my fun Technique Tuesday stamps so I could make a cute girl card. 🙂

hawkins_jill_beary_wmAgain, with the sparkly goodness not showing up in the photo! Ack! Oh well…delightful in person 🙂 They also have glossy accent noses!


I thought this color palette would be fun for a girl. It brings back memories of my favorite colors, back in the day. 🙂

I used the Technique Tuesday set Beary Sweet and the Postage Card dies. Then, I watercolored with my Zig markers. Fun!!

Thanks for stopping by! Have a good week!

Grandmother Love

Preparing for Mother’s Day and Teacher Appreciation all this week! Let’s see how many posts I can squeeze in too! 🙂 Here is one of my fun Technique Tuesday cards for my lovely Grannie. She is not online, so I’m in the clear to share! 🙂

hawkins_jill_grandmother_wmThe ‘crazy good looking’ part is so spot on. If only I inherit her genes, in that respect! 🙂

hawkins_jill_grandmother_00_wmI’m mailing this today, so I know it’ll be there in plenty of time! 😉 I only wish I could hug her in person too. ❤

I watercolored with Distress Inks, and used the following stamp sets from Technique Tuesday: Mom’s Day, Man Day, and Beary Sweet. It’s fun to mix the Mom set with the Man set! 🙂

Thanks for stopping by! See you again soon!
