My Favorite Things: Sketch #260

photoMFT Sketch Challenge #260 starts on the My Favorite Things Challenge & Inspiration Blog today! Bop on over to the MFT Card Challenges page to see what the DT made. I can guarantee they all rock. πŸ™‚

This week’s sketch:MFT_WSC_260Here is my first take this week:

hawkins_jill_shine bright_wmI love the pieces out of the newest Diagonal Quilt Square Cover Up. So I die cut a bunch of quilts, then used the pieces. πŸ™‚ I think I stuck a lot tighter to the sketch this week!! Ha! πŸ™‚

hawkins_jill_shine bright_00_wmI made another card the other night. I had to use this cutie reindeer!!

hawkins_jill_cutethanks_wmBetween the happy jumping Santa, and this reindeer, this BB Jingle All the Way set earned its way into my heart. πŸ™‚ I think I’m going to add a little sparkle to that bright nose.

hawkins_jill_cutethanks_00_wmI used watercolors for these little cuties. The wood paper warms it up so sweetly. πŸ™‚

(This stamp set is a hot commodity. So if you’re interested in it, and it is not in stock, be sure to sign up for the back in stock notification. It’s just a simple click if you have an MFT account! πŸ™‚ )

My Favorite Things: Sketch #257

photoMFT Sketch Challenge #257 begins today on the My Favorite Things Challenge & InspirationΒ Blog! Hope you can sneak in some crafty time and join us this week!! πŸ™‚

This week’s sketch:MFT_WSC_257Here is my take this week:

hawkins_jill_warmest thanks_wmI was scanning my supplies of what to use this week, and there were these little mice, in their winter warmth. πŸ˜‰ I’m also in a blending phase, so I wanted to do that. Haaa! πŸ˜‰ MFT Die inks are stellar for blending. Especially on the blending card. hawkins_jill_warmest thanks_00_wmΒ Photos do not do the Sparkle card stock justice. It’s soooo sparkly in person! Ahhh sparkle. πŸ™‚

I hope to be back later this week with another MFT card, time willing! The holidays are beginning to have their rippling effects on time… πŸ™‚ Thoroughly enjoyable, but ripples nonetheless.

MFT Color Challenge #32

It’s the 2nd Thursday of the month! That means Color Challenge #32 is on the My Favorite Things Challenge & Inspiration blog!

MFT_ColorChallenge_PaintBook_32Here’s my card for the week:

hawkins_jill_let it snow_00_wm(This stinker was so oddly challenging to photograph.)

I think these little dies to the Winter Wonderland set are so fun on their own. You get double duty from your die sets this way! πŸ™‚hawkins_jill_let it snow_wmI made a quick tag (& added a little sparkle!) with some of my remaining die cuts. Have I mentioned my love of the Sketched Chevron Background? I think I’ve used it on just about everything since it arrived in my house. LOL πŸ™‚

hawkins_jill_boo_wmBoo!! πŸ™‚ Being our first sketch of October, I chose to go Halloween-y! πŸ™‚ I layered in an Orange Zest frame here for interest. It seems to appear more in person. Weird. πŸ™‚

Another Sweet Sunday: #285

Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge!! #285 starts kickin’ today!Β  πŸ™‚

Here’s this week’s sketch:

Here is my card for the week:

hawkins_jill_bushel_wmOh this Birdie Brown set is so darn cute. Perfect with its fall touches. I colored it with Copics on Kraft. Tricky because you cannot saturate the card stock like you would with a blending card. It’s a light touch or bleeding occurs. πŸ™‚
