DT Sketh Saturday Week #118 & Some ;( News

Another Saturday, another challenge at Sketch Saturday :)
For our Week #118 Challenge, Jo has again made an awesome sketch for you to play with - go check it out in the challenge blog!! And of course we do have a great price for you this week too, and the rest of the DT have again made some stunning creations!!

I've had a hard time lately dealing with perconal things in my life, and when one of my dearest familymembers suddenly died on tuesday, my whole world fell apart.
The last few days have been very tough on me, but they have also made me "realize" that there's so much more important things in life - than just crafting.
So, until I'm back on my feet, there's going to be some quiet times on my blog
It is with a great deal of sadness, I'm posting this SS card! I've decided to step down from my DT position at SS, so this is going to be my last DT card for this amazing Challenge blog - and team!

DT Unik Hobby - August Stamp Challenge

For my August Stamp Challenge, Malene at Unik Hobby gave me this cute stamp from Stampavie - Penny Johnson's "My Little Lamb". She also asked if I could make something out of a kraft chipboard album from Inkido - and so I did :)

I started out cutting off one square of the album, so that I could glue it together as a card with two pockets.
Then I covered it with beautiful DP, and embellished it with the cute coloured image, ribbons, a charm, pearls, flowers and a nice sentiment.
Then I made two oval tags with a sentiment on each, and placed them inside the pockets.








Recipe:
Size: 12,5 x 12,5 cm
Ink: Archival Ink - Coffee for stamping, Distress Ink - Broken China for inking the edges & Refills for colouring the image.
Papers: Maja Design - Mina Vänner Carina 1, Bazzill - white cardstock, aquarellpaper 200g, Inkido - Dragspelsalbum (chipboard album).
Tools: Spellbinders - Petite Oval and Petite Scalloped Oval for the image, EK Success - Scalloped Diamond edge punch for the front/opening of the card,  EK Success - Rock Fern punch (leaf), Craft - Super Jumbo circle punch for the openings/pockets, Crop-A-Dile with eyelets to make holes in the tags, magnets to keep the card closed.
Embellishments: Unik Hobby - ribbon & charm, Cherry Blossoms,  paper roses & Gypsophilas, Basic Grey - Bling It (pearls & rhinestones), Rainbow glitter on the flowers.
Thank you for visiting - have a lovely day!
Hugs, Lena Katrine
