My Top 5 Christmas Cards

Well I hope you all had a great Christmas, spending time with family and friends.  I certainly did.  We started the day with a breakfast BBQ with our son and his girlfriend before heading 1 3/4 hours drive to Hamilton for lunch with hubby's niece and some of her extended family.... ranging in age from 2 to 94.  14 of us sat down for a scrumptious lunch.  As usual ate way too much.  In fact no one ate anything for dinner as we were all so full.  Next day we ended up back at Nicola's for a second go.... think I ate just as much again, before driving home.

Am now just smooching around being lazy.  Hubby is back to work tomorrow and I am off to have lunch with a friend at her place.  It has been raining today so made some cards... for my parents anniversary and my Mum's birthday.... but as I know she reads this.... no reveals till after she gets them!!!!  Had fun using some new stamps.

On my "travels" today I came across this site by Debbie.  She is having a little give away - just post your 5 favourite Christmas cards of 2010.
so here are the 5 favourite cards I made this year.
Wonderful time of the year


this one I was so pleased that I finally got a rose to work.


Pink Starry Night

I loved my Starry Night stamp and did many variations this year.

Wintery Starry Night

Another of the variations I made with my Starry Night stamp...

Deck the Halls - Orange Moggy
Just love this Fluffles stamp... he is so cute.

Gold Christmas  ( wmc#35)

and this one is just so elegant.  I love the monochromatic look.

That was a bit difficult as I was very happy with all the cards I made this year.....
Hope you all were happy with yours too....

Cheers for now

I must say I'm partial to the first one, since I now own it! And I LOVE IT TOO! It is so gorgeous in real life! All those beautifully stamped layers and perfect rose! Thank you for sending it to me, Dawn! I love them all and it's fun to see which are your top 5. I'll have to check out Debbie's blog. Fun idea!

Hey Dawn how come the card you sent me was not one of your favs.
I thought it was absolutely wonderful!
Perhaps mine comes under the special category and does not qualify for favourites, yes that what it is, I have it sussed now, just like you not to make me feel special......Ha
See you tomorrow.
