Happy St David's Day!

The Scrappy Tree would like to wish you a very happy St David's Day! St David is the patron saint of Wales, and on March 1st every year, this is celebrated across Wales; children at school wear the national costume, and many people wear a daffodil or a (fake!) leek, as these are both Welsh national symbols.

As you may know, one of the Scrappy Tree team lives in Wales, so we thought we would offer you a chance to experience a bit of Wales for yourself! Create a project of your choice using the colours yellow and green (representing the colours of the daffodil) and upload a picture to our Scrappy site here. The competition will close on 14th March and we'll announce the winner on the 15th!

You'll win the items shown:- two Welsh recipe books (one sweet, one savoury), some Welsh tea, a Wales mug, a Welsh dragon (a red dragon appears on the Welsh flag), a felt leek, a lovespoon (these were originally carved and given as a gift to a sweetheart; the symbols represent different sentiments) and not shown here we'll also include some Welshcakes for you to enjoy with a nice mug of tea!
Of course the real prize is this cute little dragon! :)

To be in with a chance of winning, get those yellow and green supplies out and get creating! Happy St David's Day!
