Hugs!

Here’s my take on MFT Sketch Challenge #314 and MFT Color Challenge #60!

photo I arrived home late from a school meeting last night, but still wanted to make something. Our household has been under the weather, and I was behind on creating anything! Ahhh! 🙂

I was itching to inlay something, and of course, the strips of card stock is always a fave of mine to do!

I wasn’t sure how it would look with the strips on an angle, but I like it! It’s getting mailed today!hawkins_jill_hugs_wm

I rotated the sketch, so the HUGS is the big rectangle, and the nod to the then vertical piece, is my stitching. I couldn’t decide what to do for that element, but I think the stitching turned out fun, albeit a little off from where I intended. Ha! I held my breath as I started stitching, and as I did that little piece at the bottom. I wanted them aligned, and I wasn’t sure where my needle left off! Oh silliness 🙂

Supplies from My Favorite Things!

Anywho, there you have it! Thanks for stopping by!

Sending Hugs

Yesterday, I shared cards using non-holiday products for making Holiday cards. Today, I’m sharing a card I made using holiday products for non-holiday cards. 🙂 Did you follow that? I barely did! 😉 (Click HERE for yesterday’s post.)

I made this to send some healing hugs a little while back.

hawkins_jill_sendinghugs_wmI used the Winter Wonderland stamp set & dies. When I saw these little envelopes and mailbox, well, that was that. 🙂 It’s one of those stamp sets that I’m glad I have the matching dies for.hawkins_jill_sendinghugs_00_wm Fun with holiday supplies! Stretching those too!! 🙂 And of course, the Sketched Chevron Background stamp…which I think I have used on at least 90% of my cards since it arrived. 😉

There is a little time left to participate in Sketch Challenge #260 and over a week left for joining Color Challenge #36 on the My Favorite Things Challenge & Inspiration blog! Tomorrow is the last MFT Sketch for 2015!! Wait, what?! Wow.
