Debby's annual challenge of choose your 5 favourite Christmas cards of 2011. This isn't easy but in the end I choose these 5, which are in no particular order of preference.
I've really been enjoying distressing this year and chose this card as my best example. I wanted these Tim Holtz papers for ages and finally bought them at Ally Pally. I also love these sweet images from Nellie Snellen.
I wasn't too sure about the Simply Sassy girls when they first came out as they are so different from the cutesie Sugar Nellie images. The more I saw them on cards the more the grew on me until I fell in love with them. Secret Santa is one of my favourites and I love purple and aqua together.
This is my Hubby's card which I blogged a few days ago. I love LOTV images and you just can't go wrong with traditional red and green.
This is another card I blogged this week, made for a very special friend from her husband. I love snowmen (and snowwomen) and love all the embellishments.
Choosing my 5th card was hard and I could have chosen several. These new fairies from Sugar Nellie have been some of my favourites this Christmas and some of them like this one can be used all year round. This ones adds pink to purple and aqua and is actually the card I sent to Debby this Christmas.
Thanks Debby for making me look back at the year's Christmas cards. I shall enjoy taking a look round to see what everyone else has chosen. I'm hoping to play along with the next challenge on New Year's Eve of 5 favourite cards of the year. Now that will be even more difficult.
MERRY CHRISTMAS EVERYBODY
