My Favorite Things: Sketch #260

photoMFT Sketch Challenge #260 starts on the My Favorite Things Challenge & Inspiration Blog today! Bop on over to the MFT Card Challenges page to see what the DT made. I can guarantee they all rock. πŸ™‚

This week’s sketch:MFT_WSC_260Here is my first take this week:

hawkins_jill_shine bright_wmI love the pieces out of the newest Diagonal Quilt Square Cover Up. So I die cut a bunch of quilts, then used the pieces. πŸ™‚ I think I stuck a lot tighter to the sketch this week!! Ha! πŸ™‚

hawkins_jill_shine bright_00_wmI made another card the other night. I had to use this cutie reindeer!!

hawkins_jill_cutethanks_wmBetween the happy jumping Santa, and this reindeer, this BB Jingle All the Way set earned its way into my heart. πŸ™‚ I think I’m going to add a little sparkle to that bright nose.

hawkins_jill_cutethanks_00_wmI used watercolors for these little cuties. The wood paper warms it up so sweetly. πŸ™‚

This week’s sketch:

MFT_WSC_252Here is my take this week:

hawkins_jill_you are cool_wmYum! I am a big fan of all Laina Lamb’s designs each month. They are always delicious aren’t they!? I may need to make a card with all of them on it! Hmm and mmmm! πŸ™‚hawkins_jill_you are cool_00_wmI pieced together different strips of card stock and then die cut it all with the Snow Drifts Cover-up. Another one I can’t stop using! πŸ™‚

I squeezed in a second card this week because: Halloween!!!

hawkins_jill_trick or treat_00_wm I went a little STAR crazy on this one. If I had more time to redo, I’d have omitted the stars from the Trick or Treat die cut. But, alas, had to catch the daylight to photograph. πŸ˜‰hawkins_jill_trick or treat_wmHappy Halloween! Trick or Treat’ers, Enjoy!! πŸ™‚
