My Favourite Christmas Cards of 2009...

My lovely Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge design team buddy Debby, has asked us to join her in remembering our favourite 5 Christmas cards of the year. She's selected some real stunners for us to admire again. I've been making Christmas cards all year through this year...and after browsing through all of them...I've selected these as my favourite 5:

This wee mouse is one of my favourite Christmas stamps...and the colour combination of silver and teal, was definitely one I used a lot this year.

This adorable image was one of my favourite new stamps this year...which I've paired with some yummy BasicGrey 'Figgy Pudding' papers...I bought masses of these in the January sales...and have nearly used them all up!

I also had a bit of a thing for all white Christmas cards...the perfect way to show off my favourite Cuttlebug folders!

I tried to resist...I really didn't 'need' any more Christmas papers this year...but I just had to have the 'Eskimo Kisses' pad...such gorgeous colours!

And finally...with yet more of the 'Eskimo Kisses' of the fab Whiff of Joy gnomes...with lots of my favourite things on this card.

I've loved browsing through everyone else's top 5 Christmas cards...what a lovely idea Debby!

Don't forget...I have Christmas candy here on my ABC Christmas Challenge Blog Hop post.

Finally, I'd like to wish all of my lovely blogging buddies a

Very Merry Christmas,
and a
Happy New Year!
