Spring Mid Challenge Reminder

Spring has sprung,
The grass has riz,
I wonder where the birdies is?

Spring has finally arrived.  To be honest, it does not feel that much warmer yet but the daffodils and snowdrops are bobbing their heads in the gardens and hedgerows.  In addition, the birds seem to have gone into overdrive, singing their little hearts out in the early morning.

Our current challenge celebrates the arrival of spring.  We would love to see what you think of when you think of 'Spring'.  Last week you shared some amazing projects with us, we have been so impressed.  However, if you have not been playing along, there is still time to join in the fun.

Our talented Design Team have come up with some gorgeous inspirational pieces.










This challenge will remain open until noon on Sunday, 29 March. Please click here to go directly to the current challenge.

Spring

“Spring is the time of plans and projects.” 
― Leo TolstoyAnna Karenina

In the UK the weather has been a little milder of late and although winter has not left us completely officially spring is almost here.  In just a few days it will be the first day of spring and, if Tolstoy is correct, we should be inspired by the warmer weather and things growing all around us.

We have a new challenge starting today.  We should like to see your projects inspired by 'Spring', by the celebration of the passing of winter and the coming of new life and all of those wonderful plans you are making for springtime.

Our very talented Design Team have been very busy and thoughts of spring have very clearly inspired them.

Anything but a Card

When I woke up yesterday there was a distinct feel of spring in the air.  Yes it was still very chilly but the sun seemed brighter and the days are getting longer, I think there is hope that the warmer weather is on the way .... at last!

A new challenge starts today, it is hosted by the fabulous Jess and she wants you to make 'Anything but a Card', it can be absolutely anything, just as long it is not a card.

The challenge has certainly got the Design Team thinking:
