Saturday Spotlight - Do Some Cleaning & a DT CALL

The Spotlight Divas would like to challenge you to go the opposite from last week's challenge and clean things up a bit on your creations!  What does that mean?  You can make a nice CAS style card (meaning 'clean & simple' style), or make sure you have clean edges and paper for your creation.  Please interpret this how you'd like! 

For our Spotlight sponsor this week we have...

 (click HERE to go to store.)

**One lucky winner from our challenge in Mister Linky this week drawn from will receive a special code for a $10.00 shopping spree at Whimsie Doodles Stamps!** (Now that is worth putting a card in for!)
If you know me at all, you know that CAS is not necessarily "my style" ... I prefer layers, ribbons, bling, flowers ... well, you get the idea.  So here is my interpretation of CAS ... hope you like it!
  Isn't this little gal adorable???   The image & sentiment are both from Whimsie Doodles and so "ready" to be colored.  I chose to use both Prismacolor Markers and Prisma Pencils/Gamsol for my coloring.  My matting is really eggplant purple although I can never get a good photo of anything purple, GRrrrrrr!!

Okay ... now it's your turn to create and share with us over on the Saturday Spotlight Challenge.  Remember to use the keyword SSHP20 when uploading to other online galleries such as SCS, PCP, etc.  I can't wait to see what you create!

EXCITING NEWS ... Would you like to be on this list of talented Diva's???  Well put your best foot forward and check out the DT Call our leader has in place until March 19th.  You can see all the details on the Saturday Spotlight Blog

Before closing, I'd like to thank everyone who has been participating in our challenges ... it's wonderful to come visit you all and be inspired week after week!!  I'm happy to report that our notorious leader, Vicki, has hopefully resolved her computer problems and is back in full swing with us this week!  Welcome back Vicki ... you were missed!  A huge shout out to Chris for filling in so brilliantly!!   Have a great weekend all!
