you’re a keeper

It’s that crazy time of year right? But when isn’t it always a little bit crazy? πŸ™‚

I’m squeaking in this entry to Ellen Hutson’s 12 Tags of Christmas with a Feminine Twist! Such fun!

Slider-12-tagsHere’s my festive tag!

hawkins_jill_keeper_00I used Neat & Tangled’s Scandinavian Prints Christmas and Ellen Hutson’s Warm Fuzzies! hawkins_jill_keeperI was delighted and inspired by Day 8 with Carly Tee Minner & Kelly Marie Alvarez…I loved these colorful trees (below) by Margaret Berg, that Carly was inspired by to create her super cute tag. And then Kelly’s adorable unicorn tag! Gah, so stinkin’ fun!

Margaret Berg Overlapping Xmas Trees RainbowThat’s three levels of inspiration, right? πŸ™‚

All is Calm…

Once again, I had to use this great new set from Neat & Tangled, Scandinavian Prints Christmas, designed by my friend Miriam!

hawkins_jill_all-is-calm_00The sparkle from the gold ink and the silver sparkle paper, add such a punch in person. Unfortunately, my photography skills do not nearly capture it in these photos.hawkins_jill_all-is-calm1So cool to make!

My first card was actually this card below, but after I stamped this gold tree, I was all: <3! Hence, I made the card above, which I think is ultimately better overall. πŸ™‚ But I figured I’d finish this one, and share it too!

hawkins_jill_all-is-calm2 hawkins_jill_all-is-calm2_00Next up, I plan to use this set with some fun colors!! But for now, I again wanted to play along with the current challenge:

On This Cold Day…

I’m a big fan of this new Neat & Tangled set, Scandinavian Prints Christmas, designed by my friend Miriam Prantner! Another awesome set, Miriam! πŸ™‚
