Hello Sunshine! Stay Cooool

When I saw Ellen Hutson’s Mix It Up Challenge this month was with Paper Smooches, well, I had to jump in! I was so excited to mix it up with some super faves 🙂 . I’m hoping I can sneak in another soon, since I have many things splayed across my desk already. Haaaa! 🙂


Oh my word!! I cannot handle how cute this little bear is with these giant PS glasses! 🙂 I think he might be struggling a bit, since his treat is upside down. 😉hawkins_jill_sunshine-smooches_00

I clear heat embossed this little guy. I colored in the Sunshine with both Copic markers and colored pencils. I could not decide how I wanted it to look! 🙂 I admittedly snickered when I finished this last night. Such fun! 🙂

For this card, I used Ellen Hutson’s All Inside (and dies),  Bear Ware (and dies), and Warm Fuzzies. From Paper Smooches, I used the Rainbow Die and Glasses dies. SOOOO fun! 🙂

I’m entering this in the Ellen Hutson March Mix It Up Challenge: Paper Smooches…I’m actually early this time, so be sure you check it out too!! 🙂

Thanks for stopping by! Have an AWESOME sunshiney weekend!!

Dang, You’re Freakin’ Great

I had been itching to use these glasses. I combined Paper Smooches sets and sentiments to make it say what I needed! “Dang, You’re Freakin’ Great!”  🙂

hawkins_jill_dang_wmThis card took WAY too long to make! LOL 🙂 But in the end, I think it is fun!

I was originally using the other eye glasses die in this set, but I wanted to Man it Up instead. 🙂

I’m playing along with the new January Paper Smooches Challenge! 🙂 Check it out –pick four colors (and neutrals, as needed) and make something! 🙂
