Totally random note, as I was making this, I just grabbed ink pads, not sure how many peeps it would take to complete the circle. And I just noticed they are ROYGBIV! Totally not intentional, and I love that Rainbow just happens. Haaaa! 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™‚

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!

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™‚
