Inspired by SRO! :)

Rockin’ along with MFT Sketch Challenge #270! (My Favorite Things Challenge & Inspiration blog.)photoThis may be my most literal take on any sketch ever. LOL. πŸ™‚

For this card, I was inspired by the one and only, my friend, Susan R. Opel. Susan literally writes the blog on inspiration, so I find it fitting. β™₯ SRO has an eye for fashion (and other fun) inspired card creations. Check out these examples of Susan’s awesome inspirations: HERE, HERE, and HERE. I mean, Yo! That’s fun. πŸ™‚

Way back in October (?), I was flipping through TV channels late one night, and saw Julianna Margulies on Stephen Colbert. Checkout her spectacular Chevron dress!! πŸ™‚ It stuck in my head, and I told Susan I would just have to make something inspired by it. πŸ˜‰

MFT_WSC_230 Poof! Here’s my take:hawkins_jill_yr pretty darn awesome_00_wmThis is a project that looked one way in my head, and came out another. Meh, that’s ok πŸ™‚hawkins_jill_yr pretty darn awesome_wmI made a second card based on this MFT Sketch #230. This is an even looser take, but the sketch still comes through. πŸ˜‰

hawkins_jill_celebrate_wmFor this card, I challenged myself to get it made and be in bed before midnight. I succeeded :). (‘Fastest Turtle’ for a reason: I’m slow. But let’s call me, ummm…”deliberate”, OK? πŸ˜‰ ) It helps that I save 98% of my scraps. I used some from THIS card. Hooray for being frugal! Ha! πŸ™‚hawkins_jill_celebrate_00_wmI thank one of my (many) enablers, Erin, for the sweet hook up on this Balloon STAX set. She’s a stinker like that. πŸ™‚

MFT Sketch #227

photoSketch Challenge #227 on My Favorite Things Challenge & Inspiration blog is kicking off today! It’s possible there could be many new MFT products used by the dynamite team…just sayin’. πŸ™‚

Here’s my card for the week. I may or may not have a slight obsession with the MFT Blueprints. πŸ˜‰ LOL! This is a lot of the new one: Blueprints #25!hawkins_jill_You're Darn Great_00_wmI don’t have the Fishtail Flags STAX, so I just had to elongate the Die-namics Stitched Jumbo Fishtail Banner STAX with a little die cutting magic. Works fabulously. Literally stretching your dies! πŸ™‚hawkins_jill_You're Darn Great_wmHere’s the sketch πŸ™‚MFT_WSC_227I made a second card based on this Sketch #227:

hawkins_jill_hello blooms_00_wmI don’t typically excel at using flower anything, but I have to say I was sooooo absolutely thrilled when I received these! THESE Build-able Blooms are SO up my alley–builder flowers that are on the potentially whimsical/funky side–I can’t wait to use them more! πŸ™‚hawkins_jill_hello blooms_wmMy first card is made with the following supplies at My Favorite Things:
