You deserve a Sweet Sunday…

SSSC_Grab-ItSweet Sunday for the Sketch Challenge!! #268!! Such a fun variety of styles–go see what the team made on the Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge Blog!

Here’s my card:

hawkins_jill_grateful_wmThis Build-able Blooms set has met the ink in my world. I think these stamps are officially smokin’ from the use they’ve gotten in the last week. And I just received a couple new ink pads, so I think they better get ready for round two! I’m not a “flower” person per say. I like flowers, I like what others make with flowers, but they just don’t seem to be my *thing*. But now!? Bwaaah! 🙂 Maybe I’ve finally met the *right* flower? Oh I laugh! 🙂

Here’s the Sketch for the week: sure to check out the Sweet Sunday Sketch Blog for everyone’s takes on the Sketch! 🙂

This card was made with the following supplies by My Favorite Things:

You can find all the past sketches HERE.

Thanks for stopping over! Hope you’ll join us!

hawkins_jill_MFT CC14_thankful_WMhawkins_jill_MFT CC14_thankful_01_WMI’ve always avoided violet, and look at how this color combo makes me like it! I had one of those aha moments! So silly, but true… And here’s yet one more card because the first went so quickly, I still had a few minutes to create another:

hawkins_jill_MFT CC14_grateful_WMTHIS one is even more mind boggling…Wild Wisteria flowers!? I’m so thrilled that I stamped violet flowers on a one layer card (hooray for ONE layer!) and actually liked it! So here’s to stepping out of your groove–try something new! You may be wow’d with the results… I certainly am! 🙂 I crushed many of my “I never ___” this week! I hope you’re inspired too 🙂
