MFT Color Challenge #26!

MFT_ColorChallenge_PaintBook_26It’s the 4th Thursday of the month and BAM! Color Challenge #26 on the My Favorite Things Challenge & Inspiration blog.

Here’s my card for this Color Challenge:

hawkins_jill_love you_wmI had some technical difficulties (*cough cough*) with these colors. Do note that the color above is Steel Grey–that is the darker grey. LOL. One of my favorites! πŸ™‚ I combined them together for some striped die cutting and hit it up with the Abstract Background! Another fave! πŸ™‚

hawkins_jill_love you_00_wmI had to make a second card, because the first thing I thought of when I saw these colors was WATERMELON! We go through 1-3 of those a week in our house.

Here it is:

Happy Mom’s Day!

I thought I’d share a couple of cards I made for a friend to give on Mother’s Day. I need a few dozen more of this one! πŸ™‚ If only I didn’t need to sleep…hmmmm…

hawkins_jill_love you_n_00_wm hawkins_jill_love you_n_-wmAnd then I mixed it up a bit on the second… πŸ˜‰ This dark card stock is Nightshift. In person, it looks much more dark navy than these photos suggest. Love it! πŸ™‚

hawkins_jill_love you_w_wm hawkins_jill_love you_w_00_wmThey turned out pretty fun…and they are nice to leave around after the *holiday*. I hope they are enjoyed πŸ™‚

Happy Mom’s Day! I hope to sleep til at least 7 a.m. myself. Fingers crossed! πŸ˜‰
