5 favourite Christmas cards of 2013

Well, I think it's time for me to join in with everyone else, and have a go at Debby's 5 favourite Christmas creations...

But before I do, just a heads-up that The Ribbon Girl has a brand new challenge blog, and they have a button prize to give away! Go take a peek!

In 5th place, it's actually not a card, but this "Christmoose" wall hanger I made for my daughter Kayleigh.

It was a lot of fun to make, and I took some much needed inspiration from the very talented Dawny P.

The 4th place goes to this creation:

I'd won the image over at Beccy's Place, and was very pleased with how this card came out. I'm kinda loving the colours... I gave this particular card to my grandfather, and he has it displayed on his mantelpiece!

In third place:

A very recent one which I'd made as part of the Milk Coffee DT.  Aside from the adorable image, I was very fond of the traditional colours and the way the tinsel came out. This card went to my aunt, and everyone came to exclaim over it, so I guess I'm not the only one pleased with it!

Second place:

James the Bear, naturally. And a CAS one at that! Although it's not my preferred style, it's nice to know that maybe I can manage CAS when I need to! - Card went to little brother.

And for first place, I found it very hard to choose, so we have two!

First, another James, and a completely different style of card

I just adore this image, and it seemed perfect as the focal point for this cracker card. It went to one of my best friends (who has two young daughters I thought would appreciate it...).

And then finally the card I posted in my "overall favourites of 2013"

I'm still very pleased with it! lol.

Anyways, I shall be having another peek at everyone else's over the next few days. Still trying to get back into the swing of things after our trip away!

Hope you're all doing well!
