Hummingbird thanks

Hello it's Jane here with my second animal card for our current animals challenge here at Country View. I have used a bird again but a very different one from my first card I shared.
Meet my thank you hummingbird.
At the moment I think thank you cards are such useful ones to make and send. There are so many incredible people keeping our country moving who we should be thanking. 
I have a full step by step over on my blog here if you would like to fly  pop over.
Stay safe, stay indoors and stay creative,
Virtual hugs,

March Challenge Winner, Top 3 & DTSM

Hello everybody!  It's time to announce the March Challenge Winner.  There were some really fabulous entries and we always love seeing what you're inspired to make by each theme.  So here is the winner of our Challenge and Jane's Top Three.  Are you sitting comfortably?  Then let's begin!
 March's "The Eyes have it" winner of the £20 Country View Crafts voucher, selected by Random Generator from the challenge entries is.

I had such fun looking at all the great entries for the March challenge I hosted. My "the eyes have it" theme seemed to capture lots of crafters' imagination and I loved seeing your makes. I did not have time to comment on every entry but I did visit every single one.

It is always hard to cut my favourites down to a Top 3 but needs must and here goes in order of date entry;

This is such a gorgeous layered project and her Kim's colouring is exquisite. I love the muted tones and all the tiny details. A real labour of love.
I loved the frame Tracey made for her eye and that it was just peeping out from underneath. Great textures and details too. Super work!
As you know I often make cats' eyes cards using my own cat Billy as inspiration and I loved that Elle based her scrapbook cover on one of her old cats Miss Posse who was a real no nonsense cat who she misses lots. This was a WIP started last June and put away. When the whole lock-down situation  kicked off recently she decided to get it out and finish it off. Well down Elle! 

My Design team special mention though was an easy one.. Number 32 Lucy  How amazing is this eye under the dome. The details, including the tiny flowers Lucy made are really eye opening 😉 Well done Lucy a truly inspiring piece.
So that's it for me until the next challenge I host which is in December. Thanks everyone for taking part and remember we have our April "Magical Animals" challenge running right now here

Stay safe and keep crafting,

 Bye for now,

Jane x

Fantastic work all around!  Congratulations - your badges will be on their way soon, and we hope you'll display them with pride.
