MFT Sketch #237 AND Summer School!

photoMFT Sketch Challenge #237 on My Favorite Things Challenge & Inspiration is starting today. In July here, we have Kalyn Kepner with us! Whoot!

Here is this week’s sketch:
MFT_WSC_237:This is my card for the week:

hawkins_jill_make a wish_wmI cannot get enough Abstraction! 🙂 Now it is in stamp and stencil form! LOVE.

hawkins_jill_make a wish_00_wmI used watercolors to paint the whole panel. It probably would have gone faster if I had done a couple triangles at once with the same color. But no. Did one. At. A. Time. It isn’t perfect, but I don’t think watercolor should be? I like things crisp, so this was good to do something different.

Bonus: Today is the 3rd day of MFT Summer School!

PrintBe sure to head over to the MFT Blog to read the lesson and link up to the other cards the MFT design team made. 🙂

Today is all about: Primary! Primary colors: Red, Yellow and Blue.

Print I took a little tweek on the red. 🙂

Here is my card:

MFT Color Challenge #25!

MFT_ColorChallenge_PaintBook_25It’s the 2nd Thursday of the month and in walks Color Challenge #25 on the My Favorite Things Challenge & Inspiration blog.

Here’s my card for the Challenge:

hawkins_jill_you make_D_wmThis Color Challenge was definitely a challenge, in a couple ways! 🙂 In the end, it came together, with the Kraft holding it all together. Literally 🙂

Never to give up easy, I figured I’d give it another go. In 20 minutes or less. Start to finish, including photos. Ya. Figured that would never happen. I can’t even decide what to use in 20 minutes or less sometimes! LOL 🙂 But I went with these colorful strips, and bam! Voila! Here it is:

hawkins_jill_bestest wishes_wmThe glitter was not dry when I photographed this. Too funny. I quite enjoy that it is a shaped banner card though. Maybe I should adopt this 20 minute rule always? Not likely. 🙂 But I quite like this Birthday Wishes & Balloons set. Fabulous! “Bestest Wishes” just makes me happy 🙂

Inspired by…

PrintToday is Inspirational Day two on the MFT Blog…Go check it out!

I enjoy this quote by Dr. Suess. It is so simple, but if you stop and think, it makes you wonder. 🙂 It is so fitting for kids and for myself. Plus, I think it’s a great motto to be sure and do both. I find myself doing this every time I sit down to make a project. Thinking about what I want to make and then wonder how I can use this or that. It’s both deep and simply practical right? 🙂 Plus I freaking love this graphic Laina made. Ahhhh…. 🙂

MFT_InspiredBy_SuessHere’s a card I was inspired to make:

hawkins_jill_congratssqueal_wmI thought this would be a super cute card for a kiddo! That lil’ squeal! 🙂

hawkins_jill_congratssqueal_00_wmCross stitched dies: Thud.

Hope you’ll hop over and read more this week on the MFT Blog! It’s sure to get your mind turning! 🙂 Oh, and I believe I heard the word prizes!!

Here’s my card for the week. I may or may not have a slight obsession with the MFT Blueprints. 😉 LOL! This is a lot of the new one: Blueprints #25!hawkins_jill_You're Darn Great_00_wmI don’t have the Fishtail Flags STAX, so I just had to elongate the Die-namics Stitched Jumbo Fishtail Banner STAX with a little die cutting magic. Works fabulously. Literally stretching your dies! 🙂hawkins_jill_You're Darn Great_wmHere’s the sketch 🙂MFT_WSC_227I made a second card based on this Sketch #227:

hawkins_jill_hello blooms_00_wmI don’t typically excel at using flower anything, but I have to say I was sooooo absolutely thrilled when I received these! THESE Build-able Blooms are SO up my alley–builder flowers that are on the potentially whimsical/funky side–I can’t wait to use them more! 🙂hawkins_jill_hello blooms_wmMy first card is made with the following supplies at My Favorite Things:
