Sorry for being so Quiet

 I hope everyone is doing well today.  I also hope you are loving all the new artist and stamps that have hit The Sweet Pea store.  I know I am.. I just can never pick which one I want to color first so I color alot of them and then sit down and start creating.  When I color any of my Sweet Pea Stamps I am taken to another place.. a place of calmness and everything around me is tunned out.
I have 2 cards to share with you today.  This first one is called "Jeweled" by ching chou kuiks sheet #27 Plate #86. I used some of the new DCWV paper stack called "Lemon Flower.  I cut out some of the decorative paper and used it as embellishments around the image. I also added some bead sprigs from Hobby Lobby's wedding department and colored the image with Copics.

 For my 2nd card I used one of Terra Bidlespacher's images called "Along Came A Spider", sheet #4 plate # 136.

 I used some Hedi Grace DP, Sizzix Die's, jeweled beads and colored the image with copics. 

I hope to get caught up soon as I am still struggling with terrible stomach pains.  I thought they had eased up until Friday afternoon.
Today is my Husband Bill's 46th birthday, so am going to get off here and start his birthday dinner.
Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you have a wonderful day.

Angela, such beautiful cards! And I know what you mean about being transported to another place while you color, it's so soothing. Sorry to hear that you are in pain, I had a problem with diverticulitis last year and that was horrible. I hope you are feeling better soon and that your husband has a great birthday!
