Warm Heart for MFT Sketch 290

Here’s my take on MFT Sketch Challenge #290. My Favorite Things Challenge & Inspiration Blog!photoI used my little tag from #thedailymarker30day last night and whipped it in to a cute card to mail. 🙂 It can definitely be a challenge to color each day. Other days, no problem! 🙂 Either way, I’m glad for the challenge to complete and practice, practice, practice! Quite fun!

hawkins_jill_warm heart_00_wmThis little pup has always been a favorite of mine, so I stamped him up, colored with Copics, and I’ll pop him in the mail. 🙂

hawkins_jill_warm heart_wmHave I mentioned my die cutting machine is on the fritz? Oh boy, is it ever. Don’t look too closely at this card or you’ll see the evidence of my failing little machine. It’s done a lot of cutting for me, but it’s hard to make that big purchase again. However, it looks inevitable. I think my birthday may come early this year? yikes. 🙂

My card is made with supplies at My Favorite Things: Top Dog, Wonky Stitched Rectangle STAX, Stitched Traditional Tag STAX, and Chevron Stripes.

Freaking Amazing. MFT Sketch 284

Here’s my take on MFT Sketch Challenge #284. This challenge come from the My Favorite Things Challenge & Inspiration Blog!photoI love to mix up colors, so I used Spearmint, Persimmon, Nightshift and Cement Gray. ahhhh 🙂

hawkins_jill_amazing_00_wmI die cut the chevron stripes and used the one in between as another strip. If you don’t snip them apart, you actually get three different chevron strips vs. two. Hopefully I can keep them together! I laid those up, then die cut them into the peek-a-boo circle. Inlaid that, die cut some lines, embossed on vellum, and stitched on the sentiment. LOVE the “You are Freaking Amazing” stamp. I always reach for it. 🙂

I took this photo both early this morning, and just this evening. Neither time grabbed the colors fantastically, but so it goes. A never-ending issue. 🙂hawkins_jill_amazing_wmMy card is made with supplies at My Favorite Things. Die-namics: Blueprints 13, Chevron Stripes, LJD Peek-a-boo Circle Windows, Basic Stitched Lines. Stamps: Amazing. Card stock: Spearmint, Persimmon, Cement Gray, Smooth White and Nightshift.
