My Favourite 5 Christmas cards of 2013


Every year Debby asks us to choose our favourite 5 Christmas cards for the year. Always so difficult to narrow it down to just 5 but I have managed it.

The first one is my Hubby's card. I really enjoyed colouring these little cute creatures and making a vintage style card with the gorgeous Craftwork Cards Christmas Post papers.


This one was only on my blog on Boxing Day. Another gorgeous LOTV stamp, loads of layers, frantage, lace, sharms. In fact lots of my favourite things here.


Regular readers will know I used this new Woodware stamp in a few different ways and this is my favourite. I paper pieced it and made a many layered card.


I love Delicious Doodles scene digis and teaming this one with some raffia lace and diecuts made a striking card, traditional yet modern.


My final choice is one of, if not my favourite Christmas stamps of all time. Here she is in my favourite colour combo with some of my fave lace on one of the shaped cards I have loved using this Christmas.


Well, that's my five. I look forward to checking out some of the entries.
