My Favorite Things: Sketch #252

photoMFT Sketch Challenge #252 begins rockin’ on the My Favorite Things Challenge & InspirationΒ Blog!

This week’s sketch:

MFT_WSC_252Here is my take this week:

hawkins_jill_you are cool_wmYum! I am a big fan of all Laina Lamb’s designs each month. They are always delicious aren’t they!? I may need to make a card with all of them on it! Hmm and mmmm! πŸ™‚hawkins_jill_you are cool_00_wmI pieced together different strips of card stock and then die cut it all with the Snow Drifts Cover-up. Another one I can’t stop using! πŸ™‚


I squeezed in a second card this week because: Halloween!!!

hawkins_jill_trick or treat_00_wm I went a little STAR crazy on this one. If I had more time to redo, I’d have omitted the stars from the Trick or Treat die cut. But, alas, had to catch the daylight to photograph. πŸ˜‰hawkins_jill_trick or treat_wmHappy Halloween! Trick or Treat’ers, Enjoy!! πŸ™‚

It’s the 2nd Thursday of the month! That means Color Challenge #32 is on the My Favorite Things Challenge & Inspiration blog!

MFT_ColorChallenge_PaintBook_32Here’s my card for the week:

hawkins_jill_let it snow_00_wm(This stinker was so oddly challenging to photograph.)

I think these little dies to the Winter Wonderland set are so fun on their own. You get double duty from your die sets this way! πŸ™‚hawkins_jill_let it snow_wmI made a quick tag (& added a little sparkle!) with some of my remaining die cuts. Have I mentioned my love of the Sketched Chevron Background? I think I’ve used it on just about everything since it arrived in my house. LOL πŸ™‚

MFT Sketch #250 AND Holiday Tag!

photoMFT Sketch Challenge #250 begins on the My Favorite Things Challenge & InspirationΒ Blog today!

This week’s sketch:

MFT_WSC_250Here is my take this week:

hawkins_jill_elfie_wmI sort of stretched the center panels wider and shifted the feature element (in this case, the Elf’s selfie) to the side. I then used the letters for the banner element. Just a little creative interpretation right? πŸ™‚

*elfie! I still giggle.

hawkins_jill_elfie_00_wmThis week is also an exciting, fun-filled Handmade Holiday celebration on the MFT Blog!

PrintBe sure to hop over there and catch up! Today, there are Tags-O-Plenty from several members of the Design Teams. I love tags! Here is my contribution:

hawkins_jill_joy tag_reWMOh my word–How much do I love the way the Four Way Chevron die cut with the Snow Drifts Cover Up and then with the Stitched Tag. I pulled it out of my machine after all the cutting, and just sort of gasped! LOL πŸ™‚ Be sure to go join in the fun!

#WCMD2015 #mftstamps

PrintHappy World Card Making DAY! I mean, this is OUR holiday card makers!! Love. It.

You are going to want to hop to the MFT Challenge and Inspiration Blog after you finish here because it is a FULL day over there. Seriously. Every two hours, there is a new post! Sounds to me like *card making inspiration* heaven! I can’t wait to see what my teammates made and Ms. SRO has written. Susan wrote NINE posts for TODAY. NINE! I can’t write that many in a week, let alone for one day. πŸ™‚ Seriously, an amazing group!

So, here is my card I made for this happy day:

hawkins_jill_merryandbright_WMI am naturally quite happy to use this new Snow Drifts Cover Up. I mean, wow. So many possibilities!! πŸ™‚ I then die cut the vellum strip to lay over two of the wave sections so I could heat emboss a sentiment (Joyous Christmas Sentiments). And I also used the new Snowflake Flurry stamps. I do love snow flakes. They can be used for MONTHS. And they will. πŸ˜‰ I stamped all the snowflakes on the pieces and blended the inks onto them.

New My Favorite Things release goodies! Oh this is a fun month at MFT my friends! :hawkins_jill_merryandbright_00_WM

Ok. Then I had to make two more cards for the occasion. πŸ˜‰

hawkins_jill_holly jolly_wmI heat embossed this sentiment, so in person, it stands out a bit more. Kept everything else simple.hawkins_jill_holly jolly_00_wmHere is the third card I made:

hawkins_jill_bright_wmPretty straightforward πŸ™‚ Die cut the die cut πŸ™‚

hawkins_jill_bright_00_wmAll of these cards will very likely have a stamped Thank You sentiment on the inside. You’ll want to read more about that on the MFTC&I post HERE! πŸ™‚

I thank you for hopping by here today! You must continue onward to the MFT Challenge and Inspiration blog because of all the AWESOME there today and also because of the PRIZES!!! Hello!!! πŸ™‚
