Hello!  Spring is almost here!!!  Yipee!  Our peach tree has the most beautiful pink glow, as it is starting to bud.  Don't you just love Spring?  Do birds build their nests now?  Here in Oklahoma we have the most lovely colorful birds- cardinals, blue budgies, bright yellow little canary like birds, all so vibrant in color (they must like the big colorful bugs we have here too!).  We have fat Robins too, who cock their little heads to listen for worms.  Speaking of robins, guess who one of Penny's sponsors is this week?  Yes, you got it!  Robyn's Fetish Digital Stamps!  And to go with birds and Spring, here is a super image from RF:

Tweet sweet image.  Here is a closer look:

Perfect for a Thinking of You card, I think.  Colored with Prisma Pencils; paper-pieced the little wings and fat cheeks of these Blue Birds (NOT Blue Jays!).  

I hope you will visit Robyn's Fetish Digital Stamps and Penny's Paper-Crafty Challenge #118, this week.  Our theme at Penny's is Ribbon and Dies.  If you don't have dies, a punch will do!

Well, I guess I will sign off for today.  The sun is shining!  Yeah!  Seeing the sun will be enough of a Bright Spot for me today.  I hope you get a Bright Spot too!   Bye bye for now!



  1. This is gorgeous Manderly, love how you've used your dies. Carol x

  8. I won some digi's from RF and I picked this as one of my choices. Not been printed or coloured yet - now I know where to come for inspiration when I do print it out!
