Sending Hugs

Yesterday, I shared cards using non-holiday products for making Holiday cards. Today, I’m sharing a card I made using holiday products for non-holiday cards. ๐Ÿ™‚ Did you follow that? I barely did! ๐Ÿ˜‰ (Click HERE for yesterday’s post.)

I made this to send some healing hugs a little while back.

hawkins_jill_sendinghugs_wmI used the Winter Wonderland stamp set & dies. When I saw these little envelopes and mailbox, well, that was that. ๐Ÿ™‚ It’s one of those stamp sets that I’m glad I have the matching dies for.hawkins_jill_sendinghugs_00_wm Fun with holiday supplies! Stretching those too!! ๐Ÿ™‚ And of course, the Sketched Chevron Background stamp…which I think I have used on at least 90% of my cards since it arrived. ๐Ÿ˜‰

There is a little time left to participate in Sketch Challenge #260 and over a week left for joining Color Challenge #36 on the My Favorite Things Challenge & Inspiration blog! Tomorrow is the last MFT Sketch for 2015!! Wait, what?! Wow.


My card was made with the following supplies by My Favorite Things:

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! ๐Ÿ™‚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 ๐Ÿ™‚

hawkins_jill_warm wishes_wmOverall, I don’t have the die cuts for many of the stamps sets. But I splurged to get this one and I’m glad I did! I think I may need to acquire the London Mouse set too. Because, I love to die cut the buildings. ๐Ÿ™‚hawkins_jill_warm wishes_00_wmThe new Die-namics, Basic Stitch Lines is awesome. Just sayin’. ๐Ÿ™‚
