From somewhere within

This card truly came from somewhere within me, I was supposed to go to card class tonight but didn't quite feel up to it (fighting off a cold) thought I would come home from work clean a few things off craft table and hit the hay, poor kids were going to have to fend for themselves for dinner, they probably like that better anyway.  I picked up my image I had colored the other day from Sugar Creek Hollow and thought some lavendar cs would like nice so I just pulled it out for later when I felt better.  Then I remember the flower I had from Jak Heath, thought I'd just pull that out as well.  Long story short, cause I know you know where this is going.  This is what I ended up with.  I thought, wow maybe I should craft when I feel like crap more often.  Image on front Sugar Creek Hollow , love it! SU cs, stamps - Jak Heath flower, center is a misc button, TH tissue tape and stamps and ink, chipboard key, misc lace, made the jewels with beads and a heart  , pearls.  I am entering this at
