The Places You’ll Flamin-GO!

Still snickering about this fun little Lawn Fawn set, Flamingo Together! The light bulb went on when I realized this flamingo wanted to graduate! 🙂

hawkins_jill_flamin-go_wmToooo fun! I paired the Flamingo Together set with the new Lawn Fawn Smart Cookie set, and bam,  a graduate! 🙂

I colored the images with Copics, and then blended on some Distress Ink for the background, finishing it up with some Wink of Stella sparkle, and a few Pretty Pink Posh sequins. The die cut frames are all from My Favorite Things.

hawkins_jill_flamin-go_00_wmThe tricky part is always thinking backward on masking. It’s not hard, by any means, but when it’s late at night, well, things aren’t always so streamlined in the brain, are they? LOL 🙂 Fortunately, I did have the forethought of stamping out a few of these at the same time. So, now I just need to color them!

Exciting that the current Lawnscaping Challenge is Sparkle It Up!! Perfecto for my sparkly graduate! Check out all the fun HERE!

Sidenote: As I was sparkling up my Flamingo’s hat and whatnot, my Wink of Stella pen had a surge of fluid roll out. It was close to ruining my card in the final touch. Ack! *sweats! I’m wondering if this common?

Lastly, thought I’d just share a picture of all the fun Lawn Fawn little ditties I recently finished and cut out, READY for cards! Whoot! 🙂 Cuties!

Lawn Fawn & Caring Hearts…

The problem with cardmaking:There are so many fun products to use! 🙂 I have missed using one of my favorites, Lawn Fawn. So I got these little penguins out because I wanted to make a couple more cards for The Caring Hearts Card Drive. My crafty friend Vera Yates is embarking on her 6th year hosting this card drive. What an undertaking! Vera is surely brightening the holidays for many, many people. Be sure to check out the info and get your cards in the mail yesterday!! The deadline is this week! ❤

Here is one of my finished cards. I’m mailing all my cards tomorrow! 🙂

hawkins_jill_helloholidays_00_wmI usually go with gray penguins, but I thought I’d mix it up. They are also sparkly in person. 🙂 hawkins_jill_helloholidays_wmI am also happy because of the current Lawnscaping Challenge #118! Hooray! Be sure to check it out. 🙂 I enjoy a fun challenge! 🙂
