Thank you and my giveaway winners

It is so lovely to see so many spring like blog posts out in blog land. The daylight is lengthening and it's now not getting dark until 6pm. March is such a lovely month and  full of my favourite flowers, daffodils. I like nothing better than buying a few bunches for my home. They burst open from their tight buds so quickly.
 I also have something very "Springly"...(I think I have made that word up!) to celebrate as I won the tickets for this year Country Crafts show in London later this month. What a treat that will be. Thanks so much to my dear friend Vivienne of Green Rabbit Designs for pulling my name out of the hat bowl.

I am sure you are itching to hear who has won my giveaway...........drum roll

First out of the hat came;

Susan of Mary Jane's Tearoom

Congratulations Susan, you have the choice of either the silver or copper necklace

And second winner is

Brenda of Bumblebees and Butterflies

Thanks for all the lovely comments everyone left for me. I really am sorry I can only have 2 winners as I would love you all to have instead virtual daffodil wishes are sent with love to you all.

It's the weekend again and I really hope to have some time to finish my March Tim Holtz project. It's coming along really well and is also spring based. I hope to share it with you all next week.

In the meantime my card challenge for today are a pair of tags I have made for my GD work for Ignacio of Nicecrane Designs using the most delightful Birds and blossoms 11set available here . I really love this set, it is one of my favourites.

I would like to enter my tags into the following challenges ;

Lili of the Valley bingo my line is across the top; ribbon, pearls, flowers
Pan Pastel UK anything goes
Make it Monday linky party #181
Country View Crafts paper chase my main bird and blossom tag is cut from printing paper and the butterflies are punched from scraps of paper.
Pile it on soft/sweet or bold/bright
Loves Rubberstamps anything goes
Papertake Weekly anything goes
Natalie and Amy flowers
Oldie but a Goodie spring my sentiment stamps are from June 2013 and the MS butterfly punch I used on the smaller tag is over 2 years old.
Rhedd and Rosie anything but a card
Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge tag it
Crafty ribbons anything goes with ribbon

I have made these two sweet tags using my Marianne dies and the stamped sentiments (Lili of theValley grunge sentiments) are just perfect for using as words to close my post today;

Thank you everyone for taking part in my little giveaway and also for visiting me here and I hope that March brings you all many Happy Days (and plenty of sunshine;0) It has been so mild here this afternoon, my garden thermometer got up to 18c in my sheltered garden.  Have a wonderful weekend.

Back soon,

Bye for now,
