Every year I play along with Debby's 5 favourite Christmas card of the year and every year I deliberate which to choose. Although Debby will allow a bit more than 5 I did manage to narrow my choice down to just 5 and that was tough.
I am showing them in date order as I couldn't possible rank them.
I love Sugar Nellie as you know and was thrilled to join The Sugar Bowl DT for 4 months. Time will tell if my time there is extended. I also love these deep pinks and have used them on several cards this year. The LOTV sentiment on kraft is also a favourite of mine.
This is the card I sent to Debby as she is a huge Penny Black fan and I loved the way this card turned out. I love the soft colour and oops, there's that sentiment again I have just realised.
I was so pleased to be asked to join the Little Claire DT in January. This came as a complete surprise and this is my favourite of the stamps I have used this year. Such a fun image and I love red, white and blue cards. Gorgeous ribbon from Crafty Ribbons too.
I do like making cards without images and this year have discovered some wonderful sentiments to use as the main focus. I have always wanted to design for magazines and this year I have been lucky enough to contribute to Making Cards and Cardmaking and Papercraft online. This is one of a set of 5 I made for CM&PC and my favourite. I love using banners, burlap and wooden embellishments.
Lastly my hubby's card which he loves. I could have chosen so many LOTV cards I made this year but made myself choose just one so it had to be this one. It has my favourite Christmas tree dies, glitter, penguins and a snowman.
So hope you will play along. It isn't easy I can tell you. I could have chosen far far more and another day my choices may have been different. I tried to choose a range, not just one company or all snowmen for example. Thanks Debby for a fun challenge.
