You light up my life!

Hi there!

The cue word at CASology this week is:



With my thinking cap on, I thought: FLAME~ FIRE~FIREFLY...






My sentiment:


I covered the word 'LIGHT' with a piece of matt cellotape , and colored it in layers with promarkers to try and capture the flame effect.

Thanks for looking!

I can hardly wait to hear Darnell's inappropriate comment about that light! I will be completely appropriate and say what an adorable and unique image and I love how you've highlighted the fire! Thanks so much for playing along with CASology this week!

What does Ardyth mean? I think "inappropriate" is a little harsh. I might use innuendo, but I try to use it appropriately, LOL!

In truth, I don't even have anything off color to say about this, Hannelie. I adore fireflies and loved them where I lived as a child, and I miss them here. I think your card is only and completely adorable! It is genius. It should win.

I couldn't even think of an image that wasn't already being done. You went outside the box, more than that, your design is flawless. The execution you did on the word "light?" C'mon, brilliant - no pun intended! The background two-tone and the three colored brads ...

Okay! Okay! You rock!
