My Favorite Things: Sketch #262

photoI thought it would be fun to play along with the MFT Sketch Challenge #262 on the My Favorite Things Challenge & Inspiration blog. Fun stuff to see there!
Here’s my take: I wanted a Manly Valentine, if there is such a thing? πŸ™‚

hawkins_jill_heart you_wmI was hoping to use some die cuts I already had for this Chunky Chevron Cover Up. I found them from making THESE cards!Β  #winning πŸ˜‰

hawkins_jill_heart you_1wm This second photo is redundant, but I couldn’t get a detail photo to turn out. So here’s the closest thing. Ha! πŸ™‚

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˜‰

MFT Sketch #221…

photoSketch Challenge #221 takes off today on My Favorite Things Challenge & Inspiration blog!! Be sure to head over and see all the DT cards–sure to be fabulous!

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™‚
