Favourite Five of 2010


Ok whose stupid idea was it to choose five, since I blog a card a day and that means over 300 cards. Yes some I looked at and dismissed instantly but some were really hard.
I managed to get it down to the final sixteen then down to 10, but now I'm well and truly stuck.
That's it I'm down to six and thats final I can't possibly choose further.
Good Luck everyone to choose just five but since its my challenge I forgive anyone who can't make the final cut to 5.

I confess this type of Penny Black stamp I'm not keen on but I was given it by someone dear and I thought it would be rude not to use her. She turned out brilliantly and I love the finish result and as you can see she became a favourite.
I love LOTV and I had so many to choose a from but I think I love this chap especially for those difficult mens cards.
There couldn't be a favourite five with some PB mice.


I love how these cut stamps work so well together and I love those Oliver papers.

I made several Wedding cards for DD friends, my particular favourite is this old Penny Black stamp which took a lot of patience to colour and layer.


I love this cute Kiki fairy baby from Mo Manning and I had to make her my sneaky six.

I would love you to join me in my Favorite Five of 2010 and of course I have a little candy which includes two Penny Black Slapstick stamps, you can see which ones by these posts here and here.  I will use the random thing on the morning of Friday the 7th January.

D K Crafts said...

Hi Debby. Your cards are always gorgeous, so to choose five must have been extremely difficult. What great choices you made. I think the LOTV has to be my favourite. Sorry I didn't get to join in with your challenge on Christmas Eve but will try and join in with this challenge. Happy New Year to you and your family and Best Wishes for 2011. Donna

Sinikka said...

GREAT that even you had it difficult to choose just five.

Gorgeous choices Debby. I found it very difficult to pick my 5 and I probably only do one or two per week. I would have found it impossible if I had as many as you. Wishing you a very Happy New Year. Debs xx

Hi Debby, Gorgeous cards! I found it difficult to choose 5 and I don't make as many cards as you throughout the year so it must have taken you ages to narrow it down to 5. I love the ones you have chosen :-)

Wishing you and your family a very Happy New Year!
