My Favourite Five Christmas Cards of 2011

Forgotten  how difficult this is, finally managed FIVE. The first one help start a bit of obession with the Magnolia Trees and I think possibly theres going to be lot more next year.
I love how this red post box works so well on the CAS card.
I love Mo's digi images and I love purple and the poinsettia die and love how easy it was to make a book card.

I love the traditional Penny Black stamp and even though the holly was fiddly it was well worth it.

Discovering how easy these side stepped cards I started to make quite a few and love these sweet snowpeople.
Do hope you can join me this year with your Five Favourite Christmas Cards and if you link your Post with Mr Linky there will be prize of  6 LOTV Christmas Stamps for a random winner.

The draw will be on 30th December so that on the 31st December My favourite cards of 2011 will be posted.
Sorry this challenge is now closed but on the 31st December it will be My Favourite cards of 2011
