Dang, You’re Freakin’ Great

I had been itching to use these glasses. I combined Paper Smooches sets and sentiments to make it say what I needed! “Dang, You’re Freakin’ Great!”  🙂

hawkins_jill_dang_wmThis card took WAY too long to make! LOL 🙂 But in the end, I think it is fun!

I was originally using the other eye glasses die in this set, but I wanted to Man it Up instead. 🙂

I saw the inspiration picture for the Paper Smooches SPARKS Challenge this week, and HELLO! Had. To. Make. Something! 🙂 Love, love, love geometric (and colorful!) inspiration!

Paper Smooches: Picture Perfect

Popping in for a quick post today! I have been pining to use the Paper Smooches Twiggy Florets stamp set. Because: This sentiment slays me! I think it is a riot and was the reason I ordered this stamp set! Paper Smooches has the greatest sentiments! 🙂

hawkins_jill_wet my plants_wmI played off the six grid, stitching, and floral patterns. I used colored pencils, a white pen, and glossy accents. Kept it simple 😉
