Favourite Five of 2010

The Lovely Debby posted her Favourite Five of 2010..... well make that 6 as she has so many awesome cards she had a big trouble making her top 5! visit her blog and you can see why and also join in too!
here is her fabby candy which to be honest I think is a bonus as I really enjoyed her other challenge with seeing all the fabby cards everyone posted!

Ok so choosing a Top 5! 

A new Stamp fairy card I have made in this month of December was a lovely treat to make as like everyone we are Christmas cards galore at that time of year

I have to say I LOVE WOJ Henry and this was a card for my Husband before we were married

Lili another cute favourite! and the handmade flowers were fun to make too!
using favourite Bo bunny papers too!

Again how could I not choose this cute Poorly Henry
and handmade flowers with my other favourite glossy accents

the last of my fav cards is this cute lili monkey and the start of my obsession with Kraft card!

Now I have chosen 5

But I have to say that our wedding was my 2010 highlight, so I thought I would share that with you too!

Guest book


This was the wedding present I presented to my Husband!
Difficult to photograph but it has the wedding music and the date of the wedding on aged paper.
This is a fused glass tile with wire and metal inside.
I was a naughty bride and purposely interrupted his speech much to the delight of the guests! 

Confetti tape for favours

The wedding Favours I made myself from the ribbon tape we got in the town where my now husband comes from in Sardinia,


Wedding thank you's basic on the original save the dates.
