Something other than a Christmas card and some news!

I apologise for my absence over the past few days. I returned to work last week finally so I have been rather tired! My back just about made it to the weekend and I am now looking forward to taking a bit easier for a couple of days.

The Challenge theme this week on the CES Challenge blog is 'Anything but a Christmas Card!!', I am wondering what I am going to make after the 25th of this month as I feel I have been making Christmas cards since Easter!
For my Project, I decorated a Nutella jar (yum!) to fill with mint imperials for my Nanny for Christmas. I used Snow Day papers by Crate paper which I punched and die cut with various Spellbinders shapes and embellished with gems, glitter and a bit stitching.
I hope you will be able to join us for this Challenge, we have a wonderful prize for you this week. Your choice of 3 images from the Stamp Fairy.

And now for my news...I found out last week that I am a runner up in the Card Designer of the Year Competition that is run by Simply Cards and Papercraft but I think I can finally tell you now as the Magazine is out! I am so chuffed and I can't wait to receive my prizes! It was a real thrill seeing my cards in the Magazine too :-)
I hope you have a great Saturday and a good Weekend!
