DT Unik Hobby February - Valentine Sweeties

For my DT February project for Unik Hobby, I got a cute and funny stamp of some "bugs" :)
It imediately hit me, that I had to make a Valentines card with it, 
and I new I had the perfect red papers from 3ndy Papir to go with it too ;)

Til februarprosjektet mitt for Unik Hobby, fikk jeg et søtt og morsomt stempel av noen små "buser" :)
Det slo meg med en gang, at det måtte bli et Valentines kort ut av det, og jeg visste at jeg hadde liggende noen røde papirer fra 3ndy Papir som ville passe helt perfekt sammen med stempelet ;)
The stamp called "Snuggle Bugs" from Whipper Snapper, is stamped with Archival Ink - Coffee, and coloured with Distress Ink - Refills, on Aquarellpaper 200 g.
The patterned papers are from 3ndy Papir's Christmas Collections.
The text on the front is from Papirloftet.

Stempelet fra Whipper Snapper heter "Snuggle Bugs" og er stemplet med Archival Ink - Coffee, og fargelagt med Distress ink - Refiller, på 200 grams akvarellpapir.
De mønstrete papirene er fra 3ndy Papir's Julekolleksjoner.
Teksten på framsiden er fra Papirloftet.

All the edges on the PP and the Bazzill Cardstocks, are inked with 
The frame on the red panel is made with a border punch from EK Suksess.
The beautiful sentiment inside is from Stempelglede.

Alle kantene på mønsterpapirene og kartongen fra Bazzill, er svampet med 
Rammen på de røde panelene er stanset ut med en bordpunch fra EK Suksess.
Den nydelige teksten på innsiden er fra Stempelglede.

The hearts and rectangles are cut out with Spellbinders - Nestabilities.
The light hearts are embellished with tiny red pearls.

Hjertene og rektanglene er stanset ut med Spellbinders - Nestabilities.
De lyse hjertene er pyntet med små røde perler

I've used several different roses, methal and ribbon from Unik Hobby (and Kort & Godt), 
to decorate the card with.
The flowers have got some glitter on them too :) 

Jeg har dekorert kortet med ulike roser og knupper, metallpynt og bånd fra Unik Hobby 
(og Kort og Godt) .
Rosene har fått litt glitterlim på seg også :)

Just look at these cuties - perfect for someone you love:)
 Se bare på disse søtnosene - perfekt motiv til noen man er glad i :)

Thank you so much for visiting me today - you really make me happy!!

DT Unik Hobby January - Friendship

For my February project, I got a beautiful Ladybug & Friends stamp from Unik Hobby, and I felt like making a valentine-friendship card for a great friend of mine :)

I've made a folding card, but I don't remember what the folding technic is called :(

The beautiful Ladybug & Friends image designed by Elisabeth Bell, is coloured with Distress Ink refills on 200 g Aquarellpaper.

I've embossed some cornerstamps from Prima, and the corner text from Norsk Stempelblad, with white Embossing powder.

Inside the card, I've stamped a sentiment from Stempelglede, with Archival Ink - Jet Black.
The edges are inked with Distress Ink - Weathered Wood and Vivaldi - Plum.

When you fold out the whole card, the sentiment inside is hidden.
I've used Spellbinders Nestabilities Long Rectangles and Ovals to make the panels.

The card is being held together with a double ribbon, and the panel with my signature on the back.

I've embellished the card with lots of different flowers from Unik Hobby and Prima, pearls and charms.

I've even put some Glitterstick on the flowers, to make the card sparkle a bit.

Now, pay a visit to Unik Hobby and discover all the great stuff in the shop!!!
Hope you liked my card - please feel free to ask, if there is something you wonder about :)

Thank you for visiting - have a lovely day!
Hugs, Lena Katrine

As you may remember, I got an amazing adventcalendar from my best friend Maya :)
And it also contended a whole lot of georgeous crafting stuff too *happy*
Do you wanna see?
Well, here's a pic of all the jummy stuff I got in it:

Am I lucky or what?
I think I must have the best friend ever :)

Some time ago, I got this georgeous KAOS-award from the very sweet and talented Kaia!!!
I was so supprised, and so happy, by reciving this KAOS - thank you so much, my friend, it really means a lot to me!

As you may remember, I did recive a KAOS earlier too, so now I have to make 6 of them myself...
But I know who's gonna get them...
So, during a couple of weeks, I'll let you know :)


A couple of days ago, I also recived these great awards from Astrid - thank you so much sweetie!!!
The awards goes right back at you :)

The Happy Award wants us to make a list over 10 things that makes us happy :)
There's a lot of little things that makes me happy, but here is  
the first 10 things that popped up in my mind, in random order:

1. Friends and family
2. Time for blogging
3. Reciving comments about my crafts
4. New crafting supplies
5. Crafting together with friends
6. All sorts of compliments
7. Give away cards and presents to people I care about
8. Travelling
9. Watching a great movie or reading a good book
10. Lots of sparetime, chocolate and coffee

Now, I would really like to give this to all of you - because you all make me very happy, but I'll try to cut it down to a list of 10 people this time:

I've recived The Lemon Award a couple of times before, so that one is for all of you that bother visiting me - thank you so much!


And I also recived this great award from Merethe - thank you so much sweetie!
The award goes right back at you as well:)

I'll pass this award to Maya, Marianne and Anne Kristine, who always inspire me
