My Favourite Christmas Cards of 2012

I'm joining Debby in posting my five favourite Christmas cards of the year...it took me a while to look back through them all and choose, as I'd made 118 (well actually I've made more than that...but they're on the pile for next Christmas! lol). I've tried to choose a mixture of different styles, and products...so here they are in chronolgical order)...the photos are linked to the original posts for full product info):


I tried to make more CAS /flat cards this year (to help save on postage!)...and these trees and sentiment stamp were a firm favourite!


 Another CAS card...'Snowy' is one of my all time favourite Christmas stamps...so I had to inclde him!


 Somthing a bit more 'fuusy' now...I love James the Bear...but shhhhh....don't tell anyone, but I cheated on this card and used a pre-coloured image...I also love the colours & doodling on this card.


This card has to be one of the most colourful ones I made this year...I love the embossing, the clashing colours, and most of all those reindeer!


My last card is quite a recent one...another CAS card using lots of my favourite things...kraft, blue & snowflakes!
 
Thanks Debby for the trip down memory lane...I'm looking forward to browsing through everyone else's favourite cards and getting some ideas for next year's makes!

Oh...and before I go...I must wish you all a very Merry Christmas...I hope you all have a wonderful time!
