Here’s this week’s sketch:

MFT_WSC_230 Poof! Here’s my take:hawkins_jill_yr pretty darn awesome_00_wmThis is a project that looked one way in my head, and came out another. Meh, that’s ok πŸ™‚hawkins_jill_yr pretty darn awesome_wmI made a second card based on this MFT Sketch #230. This is an even looser take, but the sketch still comes through. πŸ˜‰

hawkins_jill_celebrate_wmFor this card, I challenged myself to get it made and be in bed before midnight. I succeeded :). (‘Fastest Turtle’ for a reason: I’m slow. But let’s call me, ummm…”deliberate”, OK? πŸ˜‰ ) It helps that I save 98% of my scraps. I used some from THIS card. Hooray for being frugal! Ha! πŸ™‚hawkins_jill_celebrate_00_wmI thank one of my (many) enablers, Erin, for the sweet hook up on this Balloon STAX set. She’s a stinker like that. πŸ™‚

MFT_ColorChallenge_PaintBook_18Today starts Color Challenge #18 on the My Favorite Things Challenge & Inspiration blog… I can’t emphasize enough how fun these color combos are once you start working on them! πŸ˜‰

We continue our collaboration with SRM Stickers this month. I went with this little bag and masked it to stamp on. Turned out sooooooo fun! πŸ˜‰ SRM’s little treat bags and containers are oh so very cute. They make me want to just make treats to make cute receptacles for such! LOL πŸ™‚

Head over to cardchallenges.com today & find out all the details! Here’s a peek: hawkins_jill_CC18_00_wmI whipped up another card for this combo. This one is for my “nephew” as he turns FIVE! Where does time go!? This is now belated, but I actually had it made before his big day. Impressive for me! ha! Hope it’s still cool to have Peeps at FIVE! Happy Birthday D!

MFT Sketch #221…

photoSketch Challenge #221 takes off today on My Favorite Things Challenge & Inspiration blog!! Be sure to head over and see all the DT cards–sure to be fabulous!

Here’s a peek at my card this week: Jellybeans! On. A. Cake! πŸ™‚

hawkins_jill_sketch 221_0_wmHere’s the sketch πŸ™‚ (My card above sort of mixes up the elements a bit. ha!)MFT_WSC_221Fortunately, I was able to make a bonus card! Here it is! πŸ˜‰

hawkins_jill_sketch 221_01_wmI laugh while I’m making inlaid cards. I don’t know if I do things backwards or the hard way or what, but it’s a process! I sometimes think I do it backwards, but I think that’s the way you have to do it? Honestly, I often make things as I go, so maybe that’s it? πŸ˜‰ Either way, I laugh A LOT. πŸ™‚

hawkins_jill_sketch 221_001_wmNaturally, I added the Peep. It is Peep season after all, right? Oh, and this sentiment combines two sentiments together. Another habit πŸ˜‰

This card is made with the following supplies at My Favorite Things: Blueprints #23, In & Out Diagonally Stitched Rectangles, Die-namics Candy Jars, Stitched Circle STAX, LJD All My Love (dies), BG Diagonal Stripes,Β Candy Jar Companions, Totally Happy,Β  (stamps), Razzleberry, Tickled Pink, After Midnight, Steel Blue (Card Stock), Black Licorice (hybrid ink), Steel Blue (dye ink) πŸ™‚
