Merry Christmas Everyone!

The lovely Debby from A Scrapjourney has challenged us to show her our favourite 5 Christmas cards of 2010 in return for the chance to win some yummy candy...

I made so many cards this year...and started back on Boxing Day last I found it really difficult to remember what I'd made...but after a little look back through my blog posts for this year...(all 380 of them!) are the ones that I've chosen:

These little Whiff of Joy 'Love Birds' are so sweet...and the colours are one of my favourite combos too...a bit of distressing and faux stitching...lovely...the image was a RAK from my lovely friend I turned it into a card...and sent it back to her for Christmas! lol

I love little James the Bear by Lili of the Valley...I have a few stamps of him, and I've used them loads this year...but what I like about this card in particular are the bold colours...even though I don't like pink, I really like this card! lol

This card is so over the top I just had to include also has a few of my favourite things on: a Penny Black stamp (this is from the 'Holly Jolly' set; gorgeous glittery My Mind's Eye 'Wonderful Winter' papers (I love these...and have used them loads this year...and there are still loads left!); and the Cuttlebug 'Ice Crystal' snowflake. And I couldn't resist adding little fairy lights to the tree:

I love the colours of the BasicGrey 'Figgy Pudding' papers on this one...not traditionally festive, but they still look wintry...and that Prairie Fairy 'Snow Friends' image is so cute!

And I just had to include an 'All White' card as I've made quite a few of those this year...great for showing off all the fabulous Cuttlebug folders...and I love this cute Rachelle Ann Miller 'Teddy Bear' stamp.

I'll be back on Boxing Day with one of the gifts I made for my Mum, Merry Christmas everyone!
