March challenge - Spring is here!!

Well hello there everyone and welcome to Spring!!  I know I say it every month but where does the time go??  Over here in the UK it has been a very wet couple of months and getting around locally has been a bit of a nightmare for us due to lots of flooding but we are so lucky, and thankful,  that our house is not on a flood plain, so that we have not had the dreadful time that some people have had with their houses being deluged.  If you are someone who has been terribly affected please know our thoughts are with you and we are praying that Spring really is here and the ground starts to dry out!
Anyway, lets first of all do the January challenge winner and top three :) Thanks to those of you who entered.  So the winner is;
6 - Helen
and the top three are;
15 - Lisa D
If you would like to email me HERE I will send through the winner prize and also a top three badge if you would like to display it on your blog.  We now also have a winners badge too so you can let everyone know you have won!
On we go then to the March challenge, which this month is everyone's favourite...
Anything Goes!!
Don't forget you can enter any kind of crafting project you have made, it doesn't have to be a card - just look at the beautiful gift bag that Jane has made his month :)
As usual my fabulous DT ladies have come up with some great inspiration so don't forget to pop on over and pay them a visit (they definitely deserve some love as they fit in their DT projects around all their other commitments voluntarily and they also put up with me lol)




We would love it if you would join in this month and we can't wait to see your brilliant crafty makes!
Don't forget to tell your friends too as we are very nearly at the 300 member mark so we will be having a giveaway when we hit the magic number!
Finally just a little note to let you know that Bertie our Irish Setter pup is now 6 months old!  I promised I would show his progress as he grows.  He is a proper teenager right now and pushing the limits all the time but I adore him and he has definitely helped with my grief for William.  Here he is right now;

Thanks for looking and enjoy this months challenge


  1. Love the DT inspiration. Thanks for the fun challenge. All the best Meighan

  2. Bertie looks a real sweetie!!! I used to have a west highland terrier named Bertie too. I now have one called rose, you can see a picture of her on my blog on my most recent post, I was so sad when you wrote that you had lost William. I know how hard that can be x Thank you for keep us informed about Bertie! He is such a beautiful boy!!!
