MFT Sketch #239

photoMFT Sketch Challenge #239 on My Favorite Things Challenge & Inspiration is starting TODAY!

Here is this week’s sketch:MFT_WSC_239This is my card for the week:

hawkins_jill_hope your day_00_wmI so enjoy this little sunny dude! πŸ™‚ The Abstract stencil and background…well, I’ve mentioned my adoration of these many-a-times too! I stamped and embossed the Build-able Blooms for the sun. It ended up a little more subtle than intended, but, alas πŸ™‚

hawkins_jill_hope your day_wmI squeaked in a second card. This one was made in probably five different sit-downs, so it feels a bit disjointed. But, meh, I think it’s kinda fun still πŸ™‚

hawkins_jill_don't know_wm…and I think my stitching went a bit awry πŸ™‚

MFT Color Challenge #22!

MFT_ColorChallenge_PaintBook_22Today starts Color Challenge #22 on the My Favorite Things Challenge & Inspiration blog. Head on over there and see what our wickedly talented team busted out this week!

MFTC&I Blog–sure to be FABulous!

Here’s my card for the week:

hawkins_jill_hello_cc_00_wmI double die cut the Jumbo Dot Cover Up after inlaying the first set of circles. When you do this, you can’t exactly tell where you are cutting because the die is solid, but it worked out. πŸ™‚hawkins_jill_hello_cc_wmPolka dots… love ’em! πŸ™‚

I made a second card with some left over dots. It’s been a week of “hmmm, that’s not quite what I was thinking it would look like…”. Too funny. It’s still fun to send a shaker, right?

hawkins_jill_happy cc_00_wmI popped up the black front panel in hopes that Sour Apple would show through the window a bit, but…not so much. Ha!! πŸ˜‰hawkins_jill_happy cc_wmIt’s already growing on me more though. πŸ™‚

Inspired by…

PrintToday is Inspirational Day two on the MFT Blog…Go check it out!

I enjoy this quote by Dr. Suess. It is so simple, but if you stop and think, it makes you wonder. πŸ™‚ It is so fitting for kids and for myself. Plus, I think it’s a great motto to be sure and do both. I find myself doing this every time I sit down to make a project. Thinking about what I want to make and then wonder how I can use this or that. It’s both deep and simply practical right? πŸ™‚ Plus I freaking love this graphic Laina made. Ahhhh…. πŸ™‚

MFT_InspiredBy_SuessHere’s a card I was inspired to make:

hawkins_jill_congratssqueal_wmI thought this would be a super cute card for a kiddo! That lil’ squeal! πŸ™‚

hawkins_jill_congratssqueal_00_wmCross stitched dies: Thud.

Hope you’ll hop over and read more this week on the MFT Blog! It’s sure to get your mind turning! πŸ™‚ Oh, and I believe I heard the word prizes!!

You deserve a Sweet Sunday…

SSSC_Grab-ItSweet Sunday for the Sketch Challenge!! #268!! Such a fun variety of styles–go see what the team made on the Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge Blog!

Here’s my card:

hawkins_jill_grateful_wmThis Build-able Blooms set has met the ink in my world. I think these stamps are officially smokin’ from the use they’ve gotten in the last week. And I just received a couple new ink pads, so I think they better get ready for round two! I’m not a “flower” person per say. I like flowers, I like what others make with flowers, but they just don’t seem to be my *thing*. But now!? Bwaaah! πŸ™‚ Maybe I’ve finally met the *right* flower? Oh I laugh! πŸ™‚

Here’s the Sketch for the week:
