Today I’m sharing a perfect Paper Smooches card for the weekend! Not only is it Mother’s Day, but apparently it is going to be a wet and rainy one here. Yikes!

For this, I just die cut all the flowers from colored cardstock and the rain boot from yellow and black. I stamped the dots on the boot with a dot from the Snowfellas stamp set. It worked swimmingly! I then die cut the embroidery hoop from white cardstock and also used the cross-stitch background to give it a little more texture. I scored the card base before mounting it all on there with foam tape and adding some stitching.

Hopefully this card makes it through the mail on time! This week has been the nuttiest one of the school year, and I’m just trying to keep up! ๐Ÿ™‚

Hello and happy ALMOST weekend!

Happy 7th Anniversary to Paper Smooches!! Whooohooo! And I have loved all 7! I am ALWAYS amazed at how many awesome sets and dies Kim has whipped up in those 7 years. So many favorites! โค

Have you checked out the Paper Smooches Blog recently? You should hop over there and read some fun stuff. Kim is on a new adventure, and for the time being, the DT is going to be sharing new cards we’ve made with previously released Paper Smooches goodies! I โค this so much because I get to sift through my beloved PS stash and use them!! I hope you enjoy our fun too! ๐Ÿ™‚

For this card, I used many Paper Smooches products from the archives! Fun and Flirty, Geo Graphic, Dainty Flowers, Dainty Flowers 2, and Shopping Bag.

I just stacked up some fun foam and put that in the bag. It holds the bag up, as well as allowed me to tuck flowers in there. ๐Ÿ™‚ I just think this one is super fun! ๐Ÿ™‚

Maybe this encourages you to revive some of your favorite products too!

Thank you for stopping by and always for your kind comments. Hope your football team wins the Super Bowl! ๐Ÿ˜‰

The Sky is the Limit!

Having fun with the Paper Smooches Challenge this month! ๐Ÿ™‚ Rainbow! Love a rainbow!

hawkins_jill_sky_wmThis little set has recently been retired. I didn’t want to miss it because, it has the cutest little helicopter in it! ๐Ÿ™‚ But, I started with the umbrella. LOL.

hawkins_jill_sky_00_wmKept this card pretty basic, except that I blended my little heart out. But I see this photo above and think, huh? My photos take away the smoothness that exists in person? Weird. Anywho, glad I got some Copic coloring in.

Sneaking in one more to play along with the Paper Smooches Challenge this month! ๐Ÿ™‚ Love these bees!

hawkins_jill_favorite_00_wmI did something on this card that makes me crazy cringe! I flipped a die cut to the “wrong side”! The horror! LOL ๐Ÿ™‚ I really wanted to use this flower, and the mirror image had the leaf overlapping the sentiment. Clearly, the lesser of two evils? Haaaa! But still: Nails on a chalkboard. ๐Ÿ˜‰ shhhhh.hawkins_jill_favorite_wmPaper Smooches supplies: Bee die, Dainty Flowers Die, Uplifters stamps.
