Totally Adorable

Happy Easter! I hope those who celebrate had a wonderful Easter! Our weather was unreal here today, and I can’t remember a nicer Easter day, weather wise.

I thought I’d pop in to share some more fun from this month’s Technique Tuesday release! They can be found HERE!

I used purple and it all turned out OK! LOL! I am not a huge fan of purple, but I did try to it give it a few nods last month. Too funny!

This card uses the new fun set, Bunny Owl. (You cannot beat this price point for a cute lil’ set!)

I also used the new Kids Are Cool stamp set, which I ❀ ,and need more time in the day to use all the stamps there! πŸ™‚ I think if you journal or scrapbook, this set would be extra perfecto for you!I also used the Memo Pad Card die. This die never fails me. πŸ™‚ I used my Zig pens to watercolor this cutie, and added some googley eyes, of course.

And while we are here, enjoying some spring cards, I thought I’d share this silly one I made using the Bailey the Bunny stamp set. That tooshie is the best!

I was definitely doing some snickering while making this lil’ nutty one! πŸ™‚

This sentiment is from Sassy Family. If you haven’t checked out the latest series of stamps in the “Sassy” line, I recommend them highly. I think they are super funny!! I love to send cards with laughs. πŸ™‚ These bunnies were colored with Copic markers.

Here’s to everyone having a great week! I’m hoping to catch up on some stuff sometime this week? Yikes– I’m a bit behind on things–no pun intended! Haaaa!

Take care–

Perfect Right Now

I think this little bunny is so stinkin’ cute with his floppiness <3. I’ve been wanting to use him in bulk. πŸ™‚

When I saw the current Ellen Hutson’s January Pin Sight Challenge, I thought now is the time! The photo inspiration directly and indirectly refers to COZY! ❀ Perfect! πŸ™‚

I used Ellen Hutson’s All Inside, Bear Ware and Warm Fuzzies! I colored these cuties all with Copic Markers, and die cut them out. I then used some Cracked Pistachio Distress Ink to add a little watercolor to the panel. I heat embossed the sentiment and stitched it right on. To finish, I matted the panel and put it all together. This took a little bit of time overall, but in the end, the cute result was worth it! πŸ™‚

I’m entering this in the Essentials by Ellen January Pin-Sights Challenge. Check it out.

Some Love Today!

Popping in super quick today to share a little (Lawn Fawn) love!

hawkins_jill_octopi_wm

I used Lawn Fawn’s little Octopi My Heart set. Awwwww! ❀

hawkins_jill_octopi_00_wm

Such little cuties! I colored these with Copic markers (after stamping on the wrong card stock again *smacks forehead*). After that, I added a little Wink of Stella, which never shows in the photograph. I then finished it off with some googley eyes, of course! πŸ˜‰

The watercolored circle die is from My Favorite Things and the background stencil (rubbed with Distress Ink & white pigment ink) is from Studio Calico! πŸ™‚

Have a great weekend–Thanks for stopping by!

Otterly Great

Here’s my take on MFT Sketch Challenge #315 and MFT Color Challenge #61!photoI have surprised myself by getting in another Challenge entry! I had to use these otters though! Because: Cutie otters and puns! πŸ™‚

hawkins_jill_otter-bday_00_wm

I masked and stamped this cutie, colored with Copic markers, and then fussy cut the edge, so he would hang off a little bit. I adhered the colors of the challenge, and did a little fussy/trickery die cutting to pull the whole thing together. πŸ˜‰hawkins_jill_otter-bday_wm

Just a little something different to try. πŸ™‚

Supplies from My Favorite Things, including the new BB Otterly Love You. So stinkin’ cute!

Have a great week!

Happy Halloween!

Popping in quick, to say Happy Halloween!!

hawkins_jill_happy-halloween_wmThese Monster stamps and dies are all from Avery Elle! Soooooo fun! I have been pining to get my hands on them, and I took the opportunity to borrow a friend’s at our recent crafty retreat! Love these little guys! πŸ˜‰

hawkins_jill_happy-halloween_00_wmI colored them with Copic Markers, die cut, and then pieced it all together. This AE Burst die though! πŸ™‚ Top of my AE wishlist. I used it at least 10 times while there. Fantastic!

Ok…gotta blaze the day! Have a fun Halloween! πŸ™‚ ❀

Hedgehugs | MFT Sketch 302

Here’s my take on MFT Sketch Challenge #302! My Favorite Things Challenge & Inspiration Blog! Wow, I barely missed a few MFT Sketch Challenges in over a 1.5 years, and then I missed a lot of them! Ah, Life. ❀ πŸ˜‰photoI just enjoyed an awesome crafty weekend full of laughs, and hugs, and craftiness! I am having a hard time adjusting back to reality. πŸ™‚ To hug your crafty friends in person is priceless, and then I met so many new friends too. Just AWESOME and so heartwarming! ❀

Anywho, they were all generous to share their stamps, so I borrowed these, and made this cutie card. πŸ™‚

hawkins_jill_hedgehugs_wmThis little guy! Too fun! πŸ™‚

hawkins_jill_hedgehugs_00_wmI used Copic markers to color him, and kept the rest pretty clean and simple.
