Favourite Christmas Cards 2013

I'm joining in with my lovely PBSC DT buddy Debby's favourite cards of the year again. This week we're all sharing our Favourite Five Christmas Cards/Projects:

I found it quite difficult to choose just five cards/projects...but I whittled it down to just five in the end...I've linked each one to their original posts where you can find out more details about the products used.

I have a bit of a weakness for James the Bear...and picked this card because it also shows my all time favourite embossing folder...Cuttlebug 'Snowflakes'.

I tried to make more flat (cheap to post!) cards this year...and this was one of my favourites...simple & quick to make too...and I just had to include and Penny Black stamp somewhere in my favourites!

This one was quite a recent make...I love this Lili of the Valley snowman...and the papers were amongst my favourites too...I also got rather addicted to making felt snowflakes!

It's another Lili of the Valley stamp...but I just had to include this one as it uses my favourite papers (again!)...and it's in my favourite colour!

My last favourite is my advent calendar I made from matchboxes...I just love this..not least because it gave me chocolates every day! ;0)

Oh....and before I go...here's a photo of our Christmas cake...it was a really family effort this year...my Nan baked the cake, I covered it with marzipan and did the icing, then my Mum and Dad made the decorations...it's covered with edible glitter to make the icing 'snow' all sparkly!
 

This photo was taken several days ago...and I can confirm that it tastes delicious! :0)
