Good morning and I hope you are well. Welcome to Winter Wonderland's first challenge of 2017. Unfortunately Eileen, our owner and co-ordinator, is very poorly in hospital and so the DT have decided to keep the blog going until Eileen is well and back with us again. We have no sponsor this month but Kath has very kindly offered a prize. When Eileen returns we will be back to our sponsors. This time we are not asking you to make Christmas project. The theme is "Spring Fever - Flowers, Sunshine, Romance". We look forward to seeing some bright cards to give us some respite from the cold, frosty, misty days. The challenge will last for four weeks so you will have plenty of time to enter.

butterfly - punch
I used some Pebeo 3D Gloss Touch to form the daisy centres and then sprinkled yellow glitter powder over. We would love you to join in our fun challenge. Pop over to the blog and see what the DT have come up with which might inspire you if Mr Mojo is not working too well.
Some of us from our WI visited the Guide Dog Training Centre in Leamington Spa yesterday and we had a fabulous afternoon and met some of the amazing dogs who will be going on to give somebody life changing support. We visited the Breeding Centre in Bishops Tachbrook at the end of last year so it was interesting to see the next step in the process. The Guide Dogs Association has no government funding and relies entirely on fundraising. Since it costs approximately £52,000 per dog throughout it's life you can understand the need for fundraising!
Well that's all from me today. Wrap up and keep warm!
