BEE Strong

Sometimes you get an idea in your head and it has to come out! This is one of those! 🙂 Love these cutie bees!!! ❤


Bee Strong! Adding a little coffee never hurts one’s strength! (Especially on Monday!) 😉

hawkins_jill_bee-strong_00_wmWhile I had the bees out, I made one other little card….though I can see the lovely overcast weather makes this look a bit yuck! The bee is carrying a pink heart <3. hawkins_jill_buzz_wm

Paper Smooches supplies: Bee die, Courteous Cuties 2, Cozy Coffee Die.

P.S. I am laughing because I forgot to trim a smidge off the right side of my first card, before taking the photos…can you see that? You just gotta love handmade.Haaaa! 🙂

Happy Monday! 🙂

The Sky is the Limit!

Having fun with the Paper Smooches Challenge this month! 🙂 Rainbow! Love a rainbow!

hawkins_jill_sky_wmThis little set has recently been retired. I didn’t want to miss it because, it has the cutest little helicopter in it! 🙂 But, I started with the umbrella. LOL.

hawkins_jill_sky_00_wmKept this card pretty basic, except that I blended my little heart out. But I see this photo above and think, huh? My photos take away the smoothness that exists in person? Weird. Anywho, glad I got some Copic coloring in.

i love you the mostest

Sneaking in one more to play along with the Paper Smooches Challenge this month! 🙂 Love these bees!

hawkins_jill_favorite_00_wmI did something on this card that makes me crazy cringe! I flipped a die cut to the “wrong side”! The horror! LOL 🙂 I really wanted to use this flower, and the mirror image had the leaf overlapping the sentiment. Clearly, the lesser of two evils? Haaaa! But still: Nails on a chalkboard. 😉 shhhhh.hawkins_jill_favorite_wmPaper Smooches supplies: Bee die, Dainty Flowers Die, Uplifters stamps.

I’m playing along with the April Paper Smooches Challenge! Black and White with a POP of color! 🙂

Bee Thankful

I made a fun card with the cutest little Paper Smooches Bees. So stinkin’ fun! 🙂

hawkins_jill_heartfelt_00_wm I wasn’t sure if I liked the way I paper pieced these colors, but it’s growing on me, a little. Usually it looks better later! Does that same thing happen to you? Funny how that works. 🙂hawkins_jill_heartfelt_wmPaper Smooches supplies: Bees Dies, Heartfelt Thanks Die.

Looking forward to tinkering more with these bees soon. They are buzzzzzzzing! 🙂

Happy Wednesday!
