My five favourite Christmas cards challenge

The super-talented Debby is currently running a challenge over at her blog here:
I've known about 'favourites' challenges from previous years, but have always shied away - light, bushel and all that jazz. However, this year I'm joining in the fun and, in no particular order, these are my favourite five Christmas cards of 2012:
It was made for Mia and Livi with a lot of love and the posting is here.
Made for my step-mum - who apparently loved it almost as much as the flowers and a teddy bear from M&S which arrived on Christmas Eve (bless her). The posting is here.
This one is because of the simplicity and the posting is here. I so love the Memory Box die.
Possibly my very favourite of the year, all down to a gorgeous Penny Black stamp - the posting is here.
And finally this one as it reminds me of the fabulous time Len and I had with Kay in New Mexico. I bought the papers and ribbon whilst we raced round Hobby Lobby in Santa Fe like kids in a sweet shop. I sent it to Kay for Christmas (of course) and the blog posting is here. Just hoping she will find her way to come over to the UK to stay - you'd all adore her I know!

Why not join in, Debby has some super goodies - and her blog is always so inspirational, just hang onto your purse 'cos I've run away and bought a few things thanks to seeing them used on Debby's blog :)



  1. Great collection! The berry one tho' has to be my fave.. or is it the little girlie in the big hat??? No, the berry one... altho' I do SO love Wild Rose stamps... but the berry one is.. so pretty... LOL

  2. Loved looking at your fav 5's, just saw Julia's..what fun. All of these are gorgeous, but you KNOW I just had to pick Mr. Caroling Duck. He is just the cutest little guy...Your background papers were perfect with his goofy little character. Thanks for all the help & support you provided this past year, and all the fun at the playground. Will be back onsite once the holidays are over, and I'm home again. Hope your Christmas was grand, and that your New Year will be too. Hugs.

  3. Love em all hard to choose a favourite. I ordered , and it arrived today the cuttlebug tag die and embossing folder after reading a previous post of yours :-) Anne x

  8. Oh I laughed at the bit about be careful at looking at her site--it will make you want to run out and buy stuff! Blog browsing can be sooo bad! Like I think I need that Memory Box tree now. And that Penny Black card is to die for! They are all fabulous!

    Did chuckle at the warning about visiting my blog. I'm resisting the 90 odd memory box dies at the moment.
