Two Sweet Pea Stamps Cards and Some News To Share!!

How is everyone tonight??? I have been so busy working on some Sneak Peeks and other DT creations this week and I hope to be able to share them all of you this week!! That is when I can!! Okay now on to the 2 cards I created last night. This 1st one I created with a Sweet Pea Stamps image by Elaine Cox (Sheet#3/Plate#40) and this is from her last release. And her name is Brown Hat Spring Fairy. As you can see her hat's not brown. I decided that this image wanted to be created into a halloween card. I love the way the purple and green turned out.. this card is so bright and vibrant( So pretty in person).
And I also decided to stay with the Halloween theme and I used this image from (Exotic Halloween) Sweet Pea Stamps by Ching Chou Kuiks (Sheet#11/Plate#38). It is so hard for me to put down these stamps as I just love coloring and creating with them!! They make me fee like an artist!! And anyone who knows me knows I can't draw!!! Not even a little!! So coloring these beautiful images is the closest I'll ever get to being an artist!!

In this picture you can see the Glossy Accents I added to the glow from the candle light.

Well, I hope by the end of the week to be all caught up and have more time to visit everyones blog!! I had also had sick kids off and on for the last week!! That is not fun at all!!
Okay I also have some news to share with all of you. I am now a DT member on the Anya Ink Challenge blog!! It is an Austrailian "The Greeting Farm" Based Challenge Blog. The Blog has a new owner and the new owner is none other than the talented Kristy Young. She ask me last week if I would like to join her team!! As of course I just couldn't resist!! I am really looking forward to getting to play along with Kristy and the other DT Ladies!! What FUN.. we are going to have. See ya later with some more creations!! Thanks for visiting and listening!!
