My Favourite !!!!!! of 2011


I have failed my Five Favourite cards of 2011 in fact I've narrowed down to 11 but two cards are similar so I've counted that as one but that still leaves me with 10. 
Someone commented I could call it Top Ten cards of 2011 and I think I like that suggestion but rather change the challenge in mid flow I'm leaving it as it is but next year I'm definitely calling it Top Ten.
So my first card is an Easel card and Sarah Kay you can't go far wrong with that combination.

I just love how these colours works together.
Love the bunny with his fluffy bobtail

Love Mo's Babies and this one is no exception.

The CAS challenges have been a real headache sometimes but I love the simplicity of this card even though the bike was a bit of pain to layer and its perfect for those pesky men cards.


There had to be a Tilda since I love how she is easy to colour and layer and often helps out when
Mr Motivator has left the building.

Now these two I count as one, yes I know its cheating but its my challenge and I'm making up the rules as I'm going along. But they are the same style of card with the help of Magnolia its mostly High Hopes stamps.

I love the inverted frame and I love the adorable Kiss image from Mo and think I may have to remake her in red for Valentines.
Love the fairies from Sugar Nellie and love how with a simple sketch they both turn into a gorgeous card.
I had to have a favourite Penny Black card which was really hard since I could easily have all my favourites Penny Black but I do love how this tall card worked out and I held out nearly all year before I posted it out.


Here's the candy for this challenge, yes that my favourite papers at the moment and was incredible difficult to part with.
 Now all you have to do is to choose your Five Favourite Cards or more make a post and link it to Mr Linky.
Can I remind everyone this isn't a candy to just add your name too.
I will draw for the prize on Friday 6th January.

Hi Debby, Wow such a stunning selection of cards. I don't make half as many cards as you and found it difficult to narrow down to 5 so i'm not surprised you found it mission impossible!!!

Thanks for all the inspiration you give me throughout the year. Look forward to visiting your blog in 2012!

Best wishes for the New Year!

Happy new year! Your cards are really stunning. I love the way you decoupage. To narrow your choice into top 5 card would be very difficult. I would pick Sarah Kay, Whiff of joy, Bunny, pirates and jungle animals, fairies Sugar Nellie.
