CYS: Superheroes!

Shazam!  Kapow!  Bam! 

Hi friends!

Today is a very special day on my blog ~
It's National Superhero Day!
It's also the day the SCS group Challenge Your Stash (CYS) groupies
post our cards with a theme chosen by the hostess.
This month - it's me!

In January of this year, I chose a "Superhero" theme,
long before I made the connection of the superhero day.
According to some, like Marvel comics, superheroes are fictional ...
but I think there are {super}heroes all around us all the time ♥
They protect, they serve, they teach, they are role models.
I chose this challenge based on a call I heard on the christian radio station
and it just tugged at my heartstrings.
In the call, a dad shared that his wife and mom to their young children
 was in the hospital receiving chemotherapy for an aggressive form of cancer.
Whenever he and their children would visit,
they all wore superhero capes!

 The CYS group is exactly that ~ we have to look into our own stash
of stamps and papers and challenge ourselves to make a card
 with whatever we have on hand.  No new purchases!
I knew instantly that I wanted to use Super Hero Henry from CC Designs ~
bless him, he's been waiting to get inked up and onto a card!
Since my favorite color combo is green/teal,
I kept the colors similar to the package insert.
I also used their sketch from the challenge archives to create the card base.
My superhero card is complete and I absolutely adore it!

Go out into the world today and be a superhero to someone,
in some way ... big or small!
Just put your proverbial (or real!) cape on and make a difference.
Your heart will smile ♥ 
Big hugs, bigger blessings!
