My 5 Christmas Favourites of 2010

 2 more sleeps peeps I'm soooooooo excited I can tell you, for everyone who knows me knows how much I lurvs Christmas. It's the bestest. 
The lovely uber talented Debby is asking tio see our 5 fave christmas cards of 2010 and is offering this fabby prize too.

I am delighted to join in again as Debby did this last year and it was fab fun to see everyones cards again.  Thank you Debby!

 This is my all time fave. It was made for a very special lady in mind and her golden delicious boy. 2010 has seen the start of my Penny black addiction. I've always loved them but nows I NEED them all.

I was asked by the lovely Karen to take part in a blog hop earlier in the year and I made this CAS card or White on White whichever you prefer to call it. I lurvs my Sugarnellie stamps and this snowman. This was the first card to sell at my Christmas Fayre stall.

I was extremely pleased with this card as I made the star using my Marianne Design Creatables corner to make the star. This adorable image by Mary Hall for Sugarnellie was coloured using distress inks. My Mum loved this card.

Next is my favourite snowman again.
One of the highlights of my year was being picked to become a Sweetie for The Sugar Bowl this was a dream come true. I'm am so proud and honoured to part of the uber talented team over on The Sugar Bowl

Now last but not least my final card another card I loved making. I had been practicing my colouring and love how this cutie turned out. This was also sent to someone very special....lurvs ya mawh :D

Well thats it for me. I'm pretty well organised only 2 pressies to wrap. We will pick up the turkey crown and meat tomorrow from our local butchers already cooked. We are staying with my daughter on Christmas eve so I will make the soup then. All now is to patiently wait for the arrival of the big man in the red suit and let the celebrations begin.

Whatever you are doing and whoever you are with
