Light it up BLUE!

light it up blue blog hopToday’s post is an extra special one. I am joining in a Special Blog Hop to LIGHT IT UP BLUE for Autism Awareness. My friend Veronica Zalis had this brilliant idea in support of her son. Soon enough, another crafty friend, Tenia Nelson was there to help in support of her son too. These Moms love their kiddos and know first hand about Autism. I applaud them for acting and shining a light on Autism.

This hop is sure to be a super fun one, so hopefully you can start at the beginning and check out everyone’s creations! Most importantly, I encourage you to check out some info on Autism andΒ learn.Β I’ve spent some time doing so myself–there’s always more to know. Here’s a good resource: Autism Speaks. LOTS of information.

On with my card! (I’ll be sending it to a friend soon!)hawkins_jill_youreawesome_wmVeronica and I immediately thought of this MFT BB Super Boy to use on our Light It Up Blue cards. The awesome people at My Favorite Things generously allowed us to showcase this stamp/die set early in support of this hop (eeek!). But not to fear, you can get your crafty little hands on him too–April 7th! πŸ™‚

One more note: Be sure to leave some comments as you hop! There are goodies from some very AWESOME companies and people in support of this Β BLUE hop! You don’t want to miss it! You can start on the hop HERE at Veronica’s blog πŸ™‚

Here’s a peek at my card this week: Jellybeans! On. A. Cake! πŸ™‚

hawkins_jill_sketch 221_0_wmHere’s the sketch πŸ™‚ (My card above sort of mixes up the elements a bit. ha!)MFT_WSC_221Fortunately, I was able to make a bonus card! Here it is! πŸ˜‰

hawkins_jill_sketch 221_01_wmI laugh while I’m making inlaid cards. I don’t know if I do things backwards or the hard way or what, but it’s a process! I sometimes think I do it backwards, but I think that’s the way you have to do it? Honestly, I often make things as I go, so maybe that’s it? πŸ˜‰ Either way, I laugh A LOT. πŸ™‚

hawkins_jill_sketch 221_001_wmNaturally, I added the Peep. It is Peep season after all, right? Oh, and this sentiment combines two sentiments together. Another habit πŸ˜‰

This card is made with the following supplies at My Favorite Things: Blueprints #23, In & Out Diagonally Stitched Rectangles, Die-namics Candy Jars, Stitched Circle STAX, LJD All My Love (dies), BG Diagonal Stripes,Β Candy Jar Companions, Totally Happy,Β  (stamps), Razzleberry, Tickled Pink, After Midnight, Steel Blue (Card Stock), Black Licorice (hybrid ink), Steel Blue (dye ink) πŸ™‚

hawkins_jill_sketch 220_01_wmHere’s the sketch πŸ™‚ MFT_WSC_220Here’s another take on this sketch. I sort of reversed the shapes on this one…circles for rectangle, rectangle for circle πŸ™‚ Again, with the stripes. I decided I can’t stop. I just love them too much πŸ˜‰

hawkins_jill_sketch 220_0_wmhawkins_jill_sketch 220_00_wmThis is one of those cards when you have an idea in your head & then you end up with a different result that wasn’t quite your vision. Oh well. I enjoyed making it nonetheless. πŸ˜‰
