Emily Amphitrite!

Happy Sunday (or Monday!) Friends!
This is such a fun post!  I have the honor of being a Guest Design Team Member for Lacy Sunshine Challenges!  The fun part is showing you the image I had the joy to work with- Emily Amphitrite!  Emily is from Heather's (the artist) new Mythology Collection, available in the Lacy Sunshine Shop.  

I had to look up the word "Amphitrite" seeing that I am not a mythology expert, or even a novice (lol).  Seems Amphitrite is a sea-godess from Greek mythology (is there another?) and the wife of Poseidon under the influence of the Olympian pantheon.  I should have known that!  I also discovered that no less than 7 ships of the Royal Navy are named HMS Amphitrite, frigates in both the United States and French Navies, an asteroid and in baby name books!   There is something I do know- Emily Amphitrite was soooo soooo fun to color and make up into a card!  

 Isn't she gorgeous?

The theme of this fortnight's challenge is "Anything Goes."  On top of that, Heather gives you one of her fantastic images to use- free!!!  So head on over right now to the Lacy Sunshine Challenge blog, get your free digi, and create yourself into lots of fun!  While you are there, be sure to take a peek at the other Mythology images Heather created, used by her talented Sunshine Girls!  You don't have to use a Lacy Sunshine image to enter the challenge but as soon as you glimpse the images, I bet you'll want to!

That's all from me for now.  I'll see you in a few days.  Until then, I wish you lots of Bright Spots, sunshine, and happiness!

Your friend,
ps the sentiment is a freebie from the wonderful Paulette of Create with TLC!


  1. Lovely card. I love all Heather's digis and have a lot now. Heather is sponsoring Feeling Sketchy challenges for June. She has been very generous and given each of the design team one of her digis to use.

  2. Oh wow another amazing creation and I love the research you have done - very thorough indeed. Now those little fish is such a nice touch and I am pleased to see my favourite little insect is also back.
