February 2021 - First Signs Of Spring

Welcome to our February Challenge. This month's theme was chosen by the Lovely Miriam. We are also excited to have a new Design Team Member join us too and we will officially introduce her later in the month

Happy February.

I am lucky enough to choose the theme for this month.  for a lot of people the start of the year has been tricky - the pandemic still control a lot of our day to day, it has been winter and the nights are still dark.  So, I wanted my theme to lift the spirits a little.  That made me think of hope and new beginning and then I thought of Spring.

So my theme is that, first signs of Spring.  Here is my first project for the month

I used lots of my favourite products and mediums on this card.  Pop over to my blog to see what I used in this project.

So there you go - I really hope to see you join in with the challenge.  I hope to see lots of Spring themed projects.

Happy crafting!



January is finally behind us.  Our February "first signs of spring" challenge is very apt for us to all stay positive and look forward to brighter, lighter days. I decided to make tags for this challenge. Here is my first one.

The birds will soon start looking for their mates and building their nests, such a wonderful sign that spring is on its way. If you would like to see how I made this and take a peep at the background before it all got covered up just fly pop on over to my blog where all is revealed.

Hello crafty friends,
for our February challenge, First signs of Spring I created a card with a blue bird and a wreath. For this card, I used Tim Holtz's products and if you like it, please hop on my blog for more info.


Good morning and a very happy Monday. I'm certainly looking forward to Spring, I'm missing the sunshine and being able to sit outdoors. I had to do some serious research before I could make my card, 'cos I'd forgotten how to make an easel card!

There are more photo's on my blog here if you would like to take a look. Take care and have a very happy month x
