My Favourite Christmas Cards of 2011

Good evening everyone...I know I don't usually post in the evenings...but I'm just popping on to share my five favourite Christmas cards of the year with my PBSC DT buddy Debby...and all of you too! It's taken me a little while to look back through this year's cards and choose my favourite five...but here's my selection:

I love the mint & chocolate colour combo on this one...and of course those adorable wee mice :0)

This one's bit more elegant than my usual style, but I reminded me how much I love the effect of embossing (both types)

I'm not one to use 'people' stamps on my cards...I much prefer animals, but I love the vintagey feel, and all the distressing on this one

It's the combination of bright funky colours...Penny Black chickens...and kraft card that I love on this one

And, as I was on a mission a make flatter (and therefore cheaper to post) cards this year, I had to include a one layer card...this is my favourite one...although I didn't get to send it to anyone as it was snaffled from my card box by my Mum!

Oh...and before I go...just a little photo of the Christmas cake I decorated yesterday:

Merry Christmas - I hope you all have a wonderful day! :0)
