The Spotlight is on you!

Thank heavens for Saturdays to keep us sane don't ya think? I enjoy my job but like my weekends a whole lot more! Anyways, another great aspect to Saturdays is it is time for another Kraftin Kimmie challenge and this week we want you to use either the Spotlight technique or just a portion of an image. Now I will tell you, I have never done the Spotlight technique and was going to use a portion of an image but I felt bad cutting off their legs so Spotlight it is!




This image is from the latest release called Kitty Kapers I and chose to spotlight his face along with that cute bandana. I glittered up some musical notes I cut out on my Silhouette and the sentiment is included with the set of 3 images. Now it is your turn to either do some chopping or highlight a portion of an image. Make sure you enter your card at the main challenge blog for your chance to win some free rubber!

Hello my friend. I love your spotlight on this little one. I have never done that before and I think you have done a fantastic job of it. I also love that your kitten is brown black and white. Too cute! I am so with you about weekends. Sometimes (most of the time) I love my job, but oh weekends were made to keep us sain. lol... Mine started at 1pm today and I am planning on getting the most out of it. Have a great Sunday. Hugs, Lisa

A fun card - so colorful and smiling - Looks like a very talented "happy yowling" alley cat at night - yet you have a light background. The black elements bring in the night time element! thank you for sharing!
