This week’s sketch:

MFT_WSC_255Here is my take this week:

hawkins_jill_warm wishes_wmI thought this was a fun and WAY different color combo for me. I flipped the sketch, swapped the rectangle for a circle, and put it all together! 🙂hawkins_jill_warm wishes_00_wmI didn’t get around to making a second Sketch card this week. I’ve been trying to get a little ahead and also making MANY cards for friends and family that have been kind enough to help me on my fundraising efforts. I’m so grateful. 🙂

hawkins_jill_I'm so Grateful_02_wmI originally made a card almost identical to these for Sketch #245. 🙂hawkins_jill_I'm so Grateful_01_wm hawkins_jill_I'm so Grateful_03_wmI’ve made and completed just these cards, so far. They look awesome together! This is typically not my thing, to make many of the same card. But for the right cause(s), I did it! I think the best part is designing the cards and picking the products, so I rarely make doubles+ etc. 😉

My Warm Wishes card is made with the following supplies at My Favorite Things:

MFT Color Challenge #33

Color Challenge #33 is on the My Favorite Things Challenge & Inspiration blog!

MFT_ColorChallenge_PaintBook_33I’m really enjoyed working with this combo because it evokes such coziness. Hence my cards for this Challenge:

hawkins_jill_let's cuddle_wmThis card makes me oh so happy! The new Chunky Chevron Cover up is AWESOME. Just so cool. The possibilities! 🙂

For this card, I cut the cover up out of Sweet Tooth and then inlaid all the pieces. After, I overlaid the hollow Steel Gray cover up in the opposite direction. I shrieked a bit! Die cutting and stamping are definitely my happy. 🙂

hawkins_jill_let's cuddle_00_wmI made another card with this combo, this time using the chevron pieces only 🙂

hawkins_jill_the snuggle_wmAgain, The Snuggle is Real. I keep joking I may need an intervention to stop using these two products. Of course, I’m kidding. Or am I? Haaaaa! 🙂

hawkins_jill_the snuggle_00_wmThis color combo just says: Winter. 🙂

Just thought I’d pop in to post a cute little critter today! These new MFT bunnies are adorable!! Check them out here if you MUST have…just sayin’… 🙂 (and the dies…wink wink)

HAWKINS_JILL_somebunny_WMHAWKINS_JILL_somebunny_00_WMI cut the Smooth White card stock into strips, to add a little interested before die cutting it into a tag. The blending card is a bit different texture and color, so if I had to do it again, I might use all blending card for the tag…but that’s ok…I’m probably the only person who would notice! HA! The cute little bunny will still make someone smile! 🙂

You can check out the bunny card I made earlier this week HERE. 🙂

This card is made with the following supplies by My Favorite Things: BB Some Bunny (stamps), Die-namics BB Some Bunny, Die-namics Stitched Trad Tag STAX (dies), Smooth White, Blending Card, Kraft, Pure Plum (Card Stock), Pure plum (dye ink), Sweet Tooth (Pigment ink), Black Licorice (Hybrid ink), MIX-ables Sheer Sparkle Glitter Glaze. Love that little sparkle! 🙂
