MFT Sketch 267, Turtley Cool

Squeaking in my take on MFT Sketch Challenge #267! (Check it out: My Favorite Things Challenge & Inspiration blog.)photoThis turtle from Birdie Brown: <3. I flipped the sketch a little and tweaked it, but it’s there! πŸ™‚

hawkins_jill_aloha_wmShe’s basking in the Sun! Ahhhh Sun! πŸ™‚

hawkins_jill_aloha_00_wmI colored this Turtle for Day 15 of Kathy Racoosin’s The Daily Marker, 30 Day Color Challenge. I completed Kathy’s last 30 Day challenge, and I figured this time I would try to do part time. But so far, I’ve managed every day! Which is great, because I usually spend my time die cutting! πŸ™‚

My card is made with the following supplies at My Favorite Things: Die-namics: Stitched Traditional Tag STAX, Die-namics Stitched Fishtail Flags STAX, Die-namics Stitched Mini Scalloped Circles STAX. Stamps: BB Polynesian Paradise. Card stock and Black Licorice Hybrid ink. Patterned Paper: My Mind’s Eye.

My Favorite Things: Sketch #257

photoMFT Sketch Challenge #257 begins today on the My Favorite Things Challenge & InspirationΒ Blog! Hope you can sneak in some crafty time and join us this week!! πŸ™‚

This week’s sketch:MFT_WSC_257Here is my take this week:

hawkins_jill_warmest thanks_wmI was scanning my supplies of what to use this week, and there were these little mice, in their winter warmth. πŸ˜‰ I’m also in a blending phase, so I wanted to do that. Haaa! πŸ˜‰ MFT Die inks are stellar for blending. Especially on the blending card. hawkins_jill_warmest thanks_00_wmΒ Photos do not do the Sparkle card stock justice. It’s soooo sparkly in person! Ahhh sparkle. πŸ™‚

I hope to be back later this week with another MFT card, time willing! The holidays are beginning to have their rippling effects on time… πŸ™‚ Thoroughly enjoyable, but ripples nonetheless.
