Spotlight Birthday - CYS May

Good morning my friends. Happy Thursday. At least I think it's Thursday. It's really hard to keep track of the days while being stuck at home and each day seems to be just like the last one. With our church also being closed, I don't get that break in the week anymore. I don't know about you, but my days are all racing right along. It goes by so fast. Of course, there's always school and that has been keeping me extra busy. This semester I'm learning how to do research in the British Isles. Very interesting, but also a lot of work.

On to my card.  This month the Challenge Your Stash theme was picked by Sue (stampinspooky on SCS). Her theme was to use the spotlight technique. If you don't know what that is, you stamp your image and then pick an area of the image that you want to spotlight. Then you stamp another of the same image and color just part of it that is where you want to highlight and cut out that part and paste it over the uncolored image so that one part is spotlighted. It's a lot of fun and I really like how this one turned out. I need a masculine birthday card for June, so this is going to be it.

Materials Used:
  • Image - CC Designs - Gone Fishing
  • Sentiment - Stamp & Cut - Birthday
  • Ink - Memento Tuxedo Black
  • Cardstock - Xpress It Blending Card; Stampin Up So Saffron
  • Designer Paper - Bo Bunny - Et Cetera Collection
  • Accessories: Happy Die; Stampin Up Window punch
  • Copic Markers - E23; G12; W3; Y11, Y13, Y15
That's all I've got for now. I hope you are doing well wherever you are and that you are staying safe.

Fairy Sweet - IAS #83

Hello my friends. Happy Mother's Day to all of my mom friends whether they are your bio kids, adopted, furry, or maybe students. I believe that most women mother in some fashion. I know it must be hard for some that can't be together this year. Again, another year missing my mom who passed on a number of years ago. I still miss her but know that she is happy. I hope you enjoy your day whatever your circumstancees. The other day I was lucky to be able to get out and see the Blue Angels fly over H Town. They are really a sight to see. I was only quick enough to get one picture of them flying off. Today we have another flyover here in H Town. We have a Vintage Age Group in town and they are doing a flyover of Vintage Aircraft to celebrate VE day, the end of World War II. I can't wait to see that too. I hope I get a better view of them.

This fortnight I have a card for the International Art & Soul challenge. The theme is Flowers and Butterflies picked by guess who?  Yep, me. I love flowers and butterflies and can't wait to see what all my Design Team teamies have created. Here is my card.
