Bright eyed and bushy tailed today!

How is that for an introduction? Now that is not necessarily how I am feeling as I don't sleep well anymore (no Sinbad, you DON'T need fed at 3am!) but my dad is doing well, I have a good job, a great husband and the BEST blogging friends around so I am a happy camper! But actually the significance of the title is the challenge this week at Flutterby Wednesdays which is to make something "bright" to get us out of our winter doldrums.


I have used Minnie from Tiddly Inks and a one of my favorite color combos which is pink and green plus a little blue to balance it out. She just makes you smile doesn't she? (And if you like her, make sure you come back on Friday to see the new Wryn images Christy just releases and join in on our blog hop!) My butterfly is glittered with multiple colors and some ribbon to finish it off. Now make sure you use a fairy, angel or have a butterfly on your image and join in this week with us!

She is adorable, of course! The round sentiment is sweet with the combination of papers. My hair often looks just like that, except it's silver these days. Very cute, Amanda!

Great image and wonderful coloring Amanda. Oh, if only she was outside my window with her flowers instead of the frost covered grass!

Hi Amanda I'm back in blogland!!!. So sorry I have not stopped by for so long. Looks like you have had a very turbulent start to the year. So sorry to hear about your Dad but so pleased he is on the mend. Well done with the DT's honey, you really deserve it. Your cards are just lovely. Hope Sinbad and Lucy are fine and got well spoiled over Christmas. Bert and Simone are doing well. Promise to be back soon. Big hugs Clare xxx
