Here is this week’s sketch:MFT_WSC_238This is my card for the week:

hawkins_jill_you're my person_wmI have been long awaiting to use this stamp set. It’s crazy versatile! 🙂 Big fan of that. I have also been trying to challenge myself. This week was One Layer cards. Fun–and wow, I save on card stock! Haaaaa!  🙂 Note to self: Stamp hybrid inks first, sentiment on top of everything. Doh. :/

hawkins_jill_you're my person_00_wmOne more note: This week on the MFT Blog, there is collaboration with Xyron! Check out my post from Monday HERE.

Here is my card for today: hawkins_jill_for you_wmI watercolored again 🙂 After I dry embossed the Jumbo Dot Cover Up, I watercolored random dots. Then I added some white dots, because it needed a little smidgen of something… 🙂hawkins_jill_for you_00_wmThe My Favorite Things blog is where you can link to the other amazing cards…and learn how to WIN some goodies! 🙂

MFT Summer School: Gallon/Quart/Pint

PrintToday starts another fun week on the MFT Blog! MFT Summer School: Session TWO! Oh yes! 🙂

Today’s lesson:

PrintThe ol’ Gallon/Quart/Pint trick…You use a lot of one color, a little of the next, and even less of the next. Such fun! I could do these little lessons all day. I think I always say that, but it’s true! 🙂

Anywho, on with my card:

hawkins_jill_miss you_wmMy card here sort of takes the gallon to the extreme and the others to the brink, but you get the picture. I have been trying to stamp more, and kept this one simple. I tend to die cut, so I like to be sure I mix it up here and there 🙂 Watercolor: The untamed medium.

You’ll definitely want to hop over to the MFT Blog to see everything that Susan wrote up today. That’s where the real schooling comes in 😉

hawkins_jill_miss you_00_wmHope you can check out all the surely fun projects. I can’t wait!! 🙂 The My Favorite Things blog is sure to have lots of good stuff this week.

Today! MFT Sketch #232

photoSketch Challenge #232 on My Favorite Things Challenge & Inspiration is rockin’ out today. You know this team made fabulous, so be sure to go SEE them all!

Here is this week’s sketch:MFT_WSC_232Here’s my take: It’s a wee bit twisted up. It happens 🙂

hawkins_jill_have a spiffy_wmI think I’d inlay these circles if I made this again though ;). Go figure.

hawkins_jill_have a spiffy_00_wmI warned about the Abstract Cover Up! I’m going to have to hide it for awhile 🙂

I likely won’t get an extra card made each week this month, but I managed for today. It’s a simple one, but oh so fun! And don’t these kind always take awhile anyway? Ha 🙂hawkins_jill_miss you0_wmThese Happy Pandas are fun little guys to send in the mail. 🙂

Sweet Sunday Sketch: #272

Hope your weekend has gone swimmingly! It’s time for the Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge!! #272!

Here’s the sketch for this week:

Here is my card for the week:

hawkins_jill_you're my person_wmOh Happy Panda! 🙂 This font is a favorite of mine too. Fabulous set!

hawkins_jill_you're my person_00_wm

These Stitched Basic Edges get a lot of use. Endless versatility.

I stamped this sentiment using the coveted MISTI tool. I saved up for many a months and finally gave in to ordering one. (No help from this group of Sweet Sunday Stampers to resist it! Enablers. Geesh. 😉 ) I haven’t used it but this once (so far), and I must say for the ability to stamp this sentiment repeatedly, making it flawlessly solid, I like it a lot. 😉

Be sure to check out the Sweet Sunday Sketch Blog for all the different takes! I love all the diversity of styles each week. These ladies are oh so fun! 🙂
