Here’s this week’s sketch:

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™‚

Go over there today to get all the details! Then find some crafty time to jump in! πŸ™‚ Here’s a peek: (hint: I love stripes. Shocking, I know.:) )
hawkins_jill_sketch#211_detail_WMI tend to rotate and flip sketches. That’s how my mind works I guess? πŸ™‚

PrintWhat’s that? Another card? Yes! Here it is! πŸ™‚

It’s fun to use stamps in unconventional ways–stretch your goodies! You also need to sometimes improvise with what you have. I have no ovals, so I used a rectangle on this card below. The strip was made with the Planner Basics stamp set…check out the set and you’ll see what I used…teeehee. πŸ™‚
