February, March & April Winners, Top 3 & DTSM

 Hello everybody!  It's a very late post to announce the February, March & April Winners.  There were some really fabulous entries and we always love seeing what you're inspired to make by each theme.  Are you sitting comfortably?  Then let's begin!

The February winner of the £20 Country View Crafts voucher, selected by Random Generator from the challenge entries is

Wow,  everyone certainly rose to my Spring challenge.  And we could tell that there were so many interpretations of the 'Spring' theme. 

So, without further delay, here are my top 3 for February:


I adore the pop of colour on Darlene's make.  It reminded me of the excitement and hope of warmer evenings and the colour explosion of flowers as they bloom.


I love it when my tulips start to bloom.  It's sign that they have made it through another tough season and are looking forward to the coming months, almost hopeful.  Kati's card made me reminded me of hope and sunshine - just beautiful.


Aimslee's beautiful card reminds me of looking out of my office window while working from home.  Aimslee has created a beautiful scene here.

Thank you to all of the Top 3 for cheering my February up.

Designer Special Mention:


Alice (ScrAPamondo) blew me away with this card.  Every time I look at it I see more detail.  It reminded me of Spring bursting into the season and the birds looking happy to see it and tweeting a sweet tune.  The detail is divine. I wanted to reach in and touch the card.  Thank you so much for the inspiration Alice.
