My favourites of 2011

For my second post today I am joining in with  Debby's blog where she is playing her annual 5 fave cards of the year. Debby managed to get it down to 11 but as 2 were similar she counted it as 10. I started at 25 and that was without any Christmas cards but had to be ruthless and I got mine down to 7.

I just love Sugar Nellies and these new Pips are so sweet and this is the card I made for my good friend Lynsey's Birthday, who loves cute and loves pink. Love the WOC lace on this one too.

She is one of the first SN stamp I bought and still one of my all time faves. Elisabeth Bell is one of my fave designers and of course I love purple. This is a reminder to use feathers more often.

LOTV is another of my fave stamp companies and I really love making boy's cards. Very pleased with my colouring on this one and love the colour combo.

I was so pleased to be asked to join the Squiggles DT this year and love the bright colour combo and patterns on this cad using Miss Evie Witchy.

Another SN stamp but this time a Simply Sassy girl called Tiffany designed by the talented Krista Smith. Love pink and brown and really got into distressing and using Core'dinations this year.

These stepper cards were everywhere earlier this year and I really like them so must make more shaped cards this year. Some of my fave Henbury Lane Papers and another cute LOTV girl.

Another LOTV boy, love the raffia lace and colour combo.

I hope you'll get the chance to play. I'd love to see what cards you choose.
