Saturday Sketch Challenge 8/28

What a day!!! My poor sister has had the worst luck with her health! On Monday, we took her to the Dr. because she had been running a really high fever all weekend (103 - 104). He thought it was just a virus but on Tuesday she continued to run the fevers and developed a rash that was moving up her leg. It turns out she had cellulitis and it effected her knee replacement so they had to go in and do emergency surgery this afternoon. They were able to save the knee replacement so she won't have to undergo another surgery to replace that after the cellulitis is cleared up. Praise God!!!!!

So, on to this week's sketch. When I saw the sketch (which you can see over at the UDI blog), I knew I wanted to make this card. I hope you like it!!!!!

Saturday Sketch Challenge 8/14

Happy Saturday!!!! When the Simply Adorned jewelry line from Stampin' Up! was introduced last year, I wasn't sure if I was going to like it because of the chain. Boy was I wrong!!!! At our Stampin' Up! Convention this year, we had a contest for designing these and our UDI Friend, Barbara Dykehouse won for the most creative (scroll down in the post I linked to to see her winning entry)!!!!!! The chain on this is nice and heavy with a wonderful toggle clasp and the charm hooks on very securely with a lobster claw clasp! You can change the inserts out with ease, I am in love!!!! Look for a class in November to make an insert for each month!!!!

I used this week's sketch as the layout for this insert. You can see the sketch over at the UDI Blog where you can also see the links for the rest of the Design Team or you can just follow the link at the bottom of this post to skip on over to the next designer. So, here's my charm!
