The Sky is the Limit!

Having fun with the Paper Smooches Challenge this month! 🙂 Rainbow! Love a rainbow!

hawkins_jill_sky_wmThis little set has recently been retired. I didn’t want to miss it because, it has the cutest little helicopter in it! 🙂 But, I started with the umbrella. LOL.

hawkins_jill_sky_00_wmKept this card pretty basic, except that I blended my little heart out. But I see this photo above and think, huh? My photos take away the smoothness that exists in person? Weird. Anywho, glad I got some Copic coloring in.

I’m playing along with the May Paper Smooches Challenge: Rainbow!! 🙂

i love you the mostest

Sneaking in one more to play along with the Paper Smooches Challenge this month! 🙂 Love these bees!

hawkins_jill_favorite_00_wmI did something on this card that makes me crazy cringe! I flipped a die cut to the “wrong side”! The horror! LOL 🙂 I really wanted to use this flower, and the mirror image had the leaf overlapping the sentiment. Clearly, the lesser of two evils? Haaaa! But still: Nails on a chalkboard. 😉 shhhhh.hawkins_jill_favorite_wmPaper Smooches supplies: Bee die, Dainty Flowers Die, Uplifters stamps.

I’m playing along with the April Paper Smooches Challenge! Black and White with a POP of color! 🙂

Paper Smooches. Love.

More love with the Paper Smooches new ‘Love’ die cut. 🙂

I wanted to mail two hugs out last week. And I wanted them to be uplifting hugs, so I went straight to one of my favorite techniques: Stripes. 🙂 I haven’t pieced these stripes too much lately, so I figured it was OK ;).

Here’s the Love!

Two cards, full of love. Just be careful not to lose all the tiny pieces you need to piece it back together.

hawkins_jill_love nuff_wmThe little sentiment from the Uplifters set was the perfect finishing touch! 🙂hawkins_jill_love nuff_00_wm Oh, these cards make me happy. That is exactly what I wanted to send: Hugs & smiles. ❤

Paper Smooches: Picture Perfect September

Popping in for a fun post today!

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!

hawkins_jill_you're kick ass_wmBecause sometimes certain people just call for a “You’re Kick Ass” sentiment, you know? 🙂

Paper Smooches supplies: Design Motifs and Uplifters. Two of my favorite sets. These are desert island sets for sure! 🙂

As mentioned, I’m playing along with the latest Paper Smooches SPARKS Challenge! I love their challenges. Even if I don’t get to participate as much as I’d like too. Always inspirational. 🙂

Here is the inspiration photo for September’s Picture Perfect Challenge:

ahhhhh. Fabulous. 🙂

laughter is……

hawkins_jill_laughter is_ …oooooweee! I just really, really like this set from Altenew! 🙂 The possibilities…!

I love these layering stamp sets, but the flower ones and I just don’t seem to get along super well? I like those flower sets, and enjoy seeing other people’s awesome creations, but I sort of fall on my face using them. But I’ll keep trying with the set I have! I’ll share someday…?

hawkins_jill_laughter is_2Throw in a little PS Uplifters sentiment love and some stitching…done! Send off to brighten a mailbox! 😉

Thanks for stopping by…
