My Favourite Five Christmas Cards of 2011

This year I thought I would join in with Debby's brilliant idea of looking back over my Christmas Cards and choosing my favourite five!  Disappointingly there are one or two that I was in such a rush to post this year that I forgot to photograph them but hey ho, we live and learn!!!

My fav's definitely include some Crafty Sentiments images.

I love the simplicity of this card but I also adore the funky red and green paper.  I was so pleased with the circle sentiment on this (it is a straight clear stamp that I managed to curve on the acrylic block) 

I like this one because it's just so different.  This year I have really enjoyed putting parts of characters or images in squares or circles and again I was really pleased with how my copic colouring worked in these images, the hair especially.

And then this one, I only bought the set of Papermania rub-ons for this particular image.  It's not my normal style but I really like it.  I'm a little disappointed that I stamped the sentiment in a green that doesn't match but as there was only one of this image in the set I couldn't redo it!

But most of all I adore my ones that really show, to coin a phrase "the reason for the season"

I bought this image from Whimsy digi's (Touched by Love) and I'm pleased with my copic colouring on it.

This was an amazing prize of this beautiful CC designs image Baby Jesus (from All that Scraps) and I loved this card that when I was getting really desperate I bulk made these. Love the CASness of it yet it says all it needs to say.

So before I go and do a few more Christmas Eve jobs I just wanted to say Merry Christmas and I hope you all have an amazing Christmas holiday and of course 
Happy Birthday Jesus.
