Favourite 5

Bit of an odd day for me today as it would have been Mum's birthday, so the old mojo has taken itself off with the kleenex somewhere - no crafting but spotted this yesterday on Debby's blog and thought it might be a little bit of fun and something for me to do as I knew I wouldn't feel much like doing anything.............oh yes, something for me to do allright..... how do you choose just FIVE???

Coops has chosen seventysix million........ well 10 anyway!
I've been good and whittled down my 2011 creations to the said 5 so without further ado, here they are -

This was my very first side stepper and also my very first first place in a card challenge so obviously I was pleased with it!!

The Adorables collection of stamps from Sugar Nellie saw me spending quite a bit this year! Had to have them all - this one is called Faith and was amongst the first that I did using the sewing machine on cards! 

This was one of 5 commissioned cards in the space of about 2 weeks - I made one for a lady at the Club and when others saw it I had a rush job to make two more wedding cards and two more anniversary cards in the same design! 
(If you want to see 2 of the others they're here and here!)

HAD to include this christmas card made using a digi from the ridiculously talented Mo Manning and done in what I think were non traditional Christmas colours for a change.

and finally what I call a 'grown up' card! A CAS card which I actually really enjoy doing!

So there we are - it was so hard to choose just 5 cards and I was amazed to see actually how many I have managed to do this year - I've enjoyed my crafting year as always and it's been just great visiting everyone's blogs looking at all your magnificent creations. Thank you for allowing me into your blogland world and a big thank you to all my followers and visitors.
Thanks too to Debby for giving me something to do today - have spent a while going through all my pictures and taken my mind off other things

Wishing you all a wonderful 2012.
