Lawn Fawn & Caring Hearts…

The problem with cardmaking:There are so many fun products to use! ๐Ÿ™‚ I have missed using one of my favorites, Lawn Fawn. So I got these little penguins out because I wanted to make a couple more cards for The Caring Hearts Card Drive. My crafty friend Vera Yates is embarking on her 6th year hosting this card drive. What an undertaking! Vera is surely brightening the holidays for many, many people. Be sure to check out the info and get your cards in the mail yesterday!! The deadline is this week! โค

Here is one of my finished cards. I’m mailing all my cards tomorrow! ๐Ÿ™‚

hawkins_jill_helloholidays_00_wmI usually go with gray penguins, but I thought I’d mix it up. They are also sparkly in person. ๐Ÿ™‚ hawkins_jill_helloholidays_wmI am also happy because of the current Lawnscaping Challenge #118! Hooray! Be sure to check it out. ๐Ÿ™‚ I enjoy a fun challenge! ๐Ÿ™‚

you’re pretty darn…

hawkins_jill_darn awesome_…Awesome!ย Paper Smooches has THE best sentiments! ๐Ÿ™‚

I die cut these glasses & hearts and inlaid them–double inlaid? Ha! Fun. I even added sequins–Hark! I usually never glue them down because they looked forced when I lay them out. But I thought these worked. ๐Ÿ™‚

That’s it for today. Oh, but I do want to thank all those who have left nice comments on my recent posts–I know it takes time and I appreciate yours in doing so ๐Ÿ™‚ So kind.

WCMD: Winners (hip) Hop!

wcmd_blog hopJill-Dewey-Hawkins-Thanks-card_WCMD_winner2014_blog_badgeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeek! I just squeak all over again! I’m honored as a winner in the World Card Making Day contest! I’m certain there were dozens of awesome entries. I’m fortunate to be one of three winners in the “Thank You” category, along with Virginia and **Isha**(where you arrived from on this hop). Oh, the company I keep! ๐Ÿ™‚ The talent! Garsh. I’m so glad I tried and threw my hat (card) in the ring–what a thrill!

SO MANY THANKS to Paper Crafts and Scrapbooking Magazine. So. Many. Including our appreciation for hosting this WCMD hop.

I was super excited to hear this was my winning card, because I gotta tell ya, I really enjoy this one—the white, colored stripes, stitching, lines, this LF die and TT sentiment…eeek! Happiness! ๐Ÿ˜‰ The cardstock is pieced, sentiment die cut then inlaid. The panel is scored, forward and backward, and then stitched, matted, and adhered to a navy card base.

Made it, put it in the box, and mailed. Hence, I send a BIG Thank You to Stacy at PC&S for taking the time to photo this and send to me. Again furthering my admiration of this publication and all the great people who make it happen. ๐Ÿ™‚ Thank You!

Instead of these cards being in the fourth issue of 2015, they are coming to you today, the fourth of December. Kind of fitting, but still incredibly sad the April issue will not exist. But, let’s stay on the happy today, shall we? Yesterday’s post and hop about did me in! ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

You can follow my blog and leave me a comment below (by December 10th) telling me what your favorite part of Paper Crafts & Scrapbooking magazine is. I’ll pick one random winner to send a little Lawn Fawn sparkly surprise & a few bits of paper crafting fun out to…so check back after the 10th to see if it’s YOU! ๐Ÿ™‚

Hop on to Virginia’s blog next! Now she’s skilled–watch out!

Here’s the other WCMD winners–be sure to stop by and leave them a note! I know I can’t wait to see their winning cards and do so myself! One of the biggest perks of this win: Getting to know these crafty ladies! ๐Ÿ™‚

jill hawkins_laugh rainbow_Back to laughs… ๐Ÿ™‚ I thought I’d share the card I’m sending my Grannie for her 91st birthday Thursday! 91 years young–so true for my sprightly Grannie ๐Ÿ™‚

I love this rainbow die from Paper Smooches, and the bonus is you can make several cards at once, mixing it up. The one above is my favorite! It was my third (off white–getting crazy!) & last (so far). I was playing around with how I liked the arrangement best…I definitely like the sentiment engaged in the rainbow ๐Ÿ™‚

These two cards below were #1 and #2, given to friends this past weekend ๐Ÿ™‚ What fun!

Oh, and I’m going to include this for the Paper Smooches SPARKS Challenge this week–Anything Goes!

Walkin’ on Sunshine…

Super duper duper exciting news today…I am a winner in the Paper Crafts & Scrapbooking Magazine’s World Card Making Day contest!! I screeched some very high pitched squeals and proceeded to eek… A LOT. ๐Ÿ™‚ I’m over-the-top-thrilled about this awesome news!!! (understatement.) HUGE thanks to PC&S Magazine for all this happy!

Below is my card …just kidding! I can’t show you silly goose ๐Ÿ˜‰ April 2015 PC&S issueย  peeps (“Thanks” category). It’ll surely be fun to see all the winning cards!

I’m sharing a card, nonetheless. I like the second generation stamping shadow on a bold sentiment…I would like to try it with these diamonds too, but I was too far along and afraid I’d botch it! ๐Ÿ™‚ I’ll be trying that soon.hawkins_jill_i like you_
