TT You're in the Spotlight!!

Well it's Timeless Tuesday at Flourishes and the challenge is to bring your image or part of it into the spotlight. I love being in the spotlight don't you??? Well not really, but there are times it's fun to have the spotlight put on you and so I decided to join the fun. For this one I used Flourishes Apple blossoms set which I had to borrow from DD as my stuff is still in storage. Reminds me of that song from the 40's ...I'll be with you in apple blossom time"..I know most of you are saying "what the heck is this old lady nuts" I never heard of such a song. Well it's an oldie but goodie. I tried something a bit different on this one by stamping in a soft pink ink for my card and then of course some black for the spotlight part. Used 2 circle punches to get the "in the spotlight" effect.

Stamp, color with your favorite source of coloring which of course for me are my water color pencils and then using a blender. Just added a bit of bling and some glitter on my spotlighted flowers. Easy peasy and oh so pleasy.

Fill in on the house building...the foundation was poured and is dry and today some cowboy was driving his back hoe up and down putting in gravel which I guess is the base before the concrete. Note I said " I guess" because I'm no expert when it comes to these things so I am just guessing, and besides I'm more interested in the dudes in the cowboy hats. I think for safety they sould make a cowboy hard hat...what do you think? Hopefully by tomorrow there will be some basement walls up. I will take some pictures and post so you can see the progress.

Oh Pat this is beautiful!! And it sounds like you are enjoying watching the building process!!! hehe


Your card is lovely! Glad things are coming right along on your new home! Have they given you any kind of date, barring technical difficulties? I think I would have a hard time being patient for that! Although I wouldn't mind watching those cowboys myself! You are so funny!

Gorgeous card! I want to see pix of the house progress, but how about a few glam shots of you and the cowboys? ~chris

yeah! A few days of no rain showers may help those cowboys roundup some packing materials for a cement pour.
Anticipating your photos.
Soft pink and spotlight circles of crisp black images over soft pink make a lovely greeting. Good go, Pat.
Keep Looking UP!
