My favourite five

The Fabulous Debby has got an open candy challenge until December 29th
she is asking us to show our 5 favourite Christmas cards of 2010.

Gosh picking 5 cards! I desided the best way was to add the ones I liked and then narrow it down!
and well thank goodness its only Christmas cards! if I had to pick from  all the projects I have made in 2010... I would have been in a terrible mess! I had 16 cards on my just christmas cards to choose from list
So after much deliberation these are my fav 5
  • This card I love I know its got pink on it!
    and I don't like pink! but in some odd way this is just so perfect in these colours

  •  I love this one because of the Kraft card and the magic mesh
    using a brad for Rudolf nose which was silver and using red alcohol inks to change it, also changing the colour of the rose from pink to red too!

  • This Holly card is a more resent one but I was sooooo pleased with how this one turned out
    Stamping and distressing the Kraft card to make the backing paper too!
    I found by adding glossy accents to the cherries really finished this card off.

This card I had so much fun making and the image was a non Christmas one that I added the jingle bells too! and I also had fun with distress stickles and white wash card too!

last but not least I love this card because I really love the image and also I used a lot of  recycling with this card, the parts that look like kraft card are in fact a brown envelope, and the raffia is some off of a packet of spaghetti bought as a gift for me.
I hope you like the cards I chose I could have chosen another 5 and some too!
