My Five Favourite Christmas Cards

It's finally here Christmas Eve.

The first is a Mo Manning card of that gorgeous Winter Fairy Talva the original post is here 
My second in no particular order is these fabulous snowflakes from Memory Box, 
you will find the post here.
Originally made for the Less is More challenge but love the Penny Black Stamp

I knew everyone would love this Magnolia image, find the post here.

There had to be a cute Penny Black card somewhere, find the post here
Ok I know this is the sixth card but somehow I couldn't leave this one out cos I was so pleased how it turned out especially I had carried the idea in my head for several days before it was made, you can find the original post here.

So here's the Christmas candy, you know I love Mo's images and Penny Black so the stamp ticked both boxes. The snowflake is the one I used in my card above obviously a new one. I've also added some fun flock and flower soft which I use for snow and fluffy clothes.
So all you have to do is to use Mr Linky to your Favourite Five Christmas Cards to be in with a chance for the candy. You have till Sunday 30th December.

KraftyKoolKat said...

Debby I am so sorry I seem to have left my name twice. Number 17 I thought it was blog candy and didn't read the whole of the post properly. It is just linked to the blog. It wasn't until I left a link on 97 with my five cards that I realised my mistake. It will not let me cancel number 17.

Sorry sweetie.


Anonymous said...

Debby I really don't know how you choose just 5 favourites Every year you have done this I have played along and I struggle to choose only 5 if I had to choose from yours OMG! there would be 25 or MORE!
Thank you for doing this post once again and I am now going to go and try and choose 5 of mine ehhehehehee
Thanks you for a chance once again at wonderful candy from your blog, very kind!
have a WONDERFUL new year too! and look forward to seeing what you will make in 2013 xx
