My favourite cards of 2010

I joined in with Debby's challenge to show her our favourite five Christmas cards of 2010 last week...and loved hopping round to see what everyone else had chosen...so I thought I'd join her again and show you my five favourite cards of 2010...there's yummy candy on offer...and plenty of inspiration to be had...so do pop over and join in.
After looking through all this year's blog posts, I had 12 cards...but managed to get it down to 5 in the end...so here goes:


Lots of my favourite things on this card...cute Penny Black image...My Mind's Eye papers...Cuttlebug emboossing...distressing and faux stitching...lovely! :0)


This card is special to me, because I made it for a special crafting friend's wedding...and I love white on white cards...


I had to include a Lili of the Valley card...and this one also uses one of my favourite colour combos...and more distressing and faux stitching ;0)


This easel card/calendar was quite a recent make...but I just love the image and soft colours on it.


My final card is not a card at all...it's a box that I filled with Penny Black cards I made as a birthday present for my Nan...I love the colours & papers on it...I've had that Kioshi pad for months...but still find it hard to cut into the papers! lol
