Magazine Winner

Hello friends
Today announcing the winner of the Make Christmas Cards magazine
(with those 279 pieces!)
The winner is......


Congratulations Jane, please drop me an email - christine.emberson@blueyonder.co.uk 
with your address details and I will get it sent straight out to you.

It seems appropriate I should share another festive project made using papers
from the magazine.  A treat bag, I've used a glassine bag (these are super cheap on eBay).
To create a texture, I embossed it with Snowflake Impressabilities.
Added strips of the free papers to the bottom section and cut/embossed a Standard Circle,
folded it in half, secured at the back and the front flap is kept closed with a mini peg.
A tag and snowflake (Create A Flake Three) finishes the design.
Although it is not technically finished...it needs something yummy inside!

Today heading off to The Royal Marsden, still in the preparation stages for 
radiotherapy but good progress at home with Elliott wearing his mask so fingers crossed.

Thank you everyone for all your kindness and good wishes - truly helps.

Oh lovely, thank you very much - I'll get an email on the way to you right away. I've been looking out for the magazine in the shops but not managed to find a copy, so this is great. While I'm here, can I say a special thank you for the lovely extras you pop in with orders from your Amazon shop?

Hope the hospital visit goes well and that Elliott can soon start his treatment.
