My Favorite Things: Sketch #259

photoMFT Sketch Challenge #259 starts on the My Favorite Things Challenge & InspirationΒ Blog today! Take a break from the holiday craze and join us! Only a couple left after this one for 2015!

This week’s sketch:MFT_WSC_259Here is my take this week:

hawkins_jill_happy holidays_wmPoof! I find this a refreshing take on the Christmas cards. Do you? When I finished this card, I thought, Dang, I think Erin has rubbed off on me! Something about its overall feel reminds me of Erin’s fabulously bold style. πŸ™‚

hawkins_jill_happy holidays_00_wmI originally had the three leafy greens exactly like the sketch has them. It looked awkward, so I took those three sketch elements and bundled them. I love to see when people follow Sketches tightly. (Check out Miriam‘s because she’s really good like that). I sometimes (ok, often) end up tweeking a few things on my cards. πŸ˜‰

I didn’t get to making another Sketch card, but I did make this fun guy:

hawkins_jill_jingle_00_wmI tried soooooooooo long to resist ordering this set, because I felt pretty good about my collection of Christmas stamps. But, I’m weak. This one particular Santa made me order it. Plus, I did not have any Santa stamps. So obviously, it’s justifiable. πŸ˜‰ πŸ˜‰hawkins_jill_jingle_wmI clear embossed his outline and then used watercolors to give him color! Too fun! πŸ™‚

My Happy Holidays card is made with the following supplies at My Favorite Things:

My Favorite Things: Sketch #253

photoMFT Sketch Challenge #253 is jumpin‘ on the My Favorite Things Challenge & InspirationΒ Blog!

This week’s sketch:

MFT_WSC_253Here is my take this week:

hawkins_jill_smore fun_00_wmEEEEEEEEEE!! S’mores! So tasty and super fun to die cut for cards.hawkins_jill_smore fun_wmI stamped up a second card for this Sketch because I had to use this little doggy. I initially wanted this Top Dog set specifically for this dog. Too cute:

hawkins_jill_it's been_wmI colored this pup with Copics, straight up. No shading, no nothing. I don’t know that I have ever done that before and I’m not quite sure why? LOL. πŸ™‚ It’s weird how this card photo shows variation in the brown, because in person, it’s a solid, even brown. Wacky. My best skill is not card photography, but I have been working on it little by little. πŸ™‚
