Favourite five Christmas


So here we are Christmas Eve with a enough food to feed an army even though we promised to buy less this year, the presents are wrapped and the double sided tape and glitter have been put away till at least after Boxing day.
But it does mean I have a little challenge and if like me you were prepared and have the post in your drafts waiting to be published. My Favourite Five Christmas Creations (or in my case cards) of 2013.
There's a link after each card to take you to the orginal post.











Now all you have to do is make a post of your Five favourite Christmas Creations and using the linky thing add your link to the post. This time I called it creations because we all seem to be diversifying into other crafts including myself.

brenda said...

Me again Debby, I have just realised that I got totally the wrong end of the stick and this is all about Christmas, I really did think it was for all of 2013.

I don't have time to re-do my post now so will add a little apology and perhaps you could remove my link.

So sorry !!

These are lovely and beautiful in their own way. I really like the design you chose for the happy snowmen in front of the village. The way you framed them and those added die cut tress - just wonderful! I also love your white card with the little touches of red - so elegant!

KT Fit Kitty said...

My goodness, your cards are beautiful. It's no wonder those ones are your favourites. I just found this as I've seen others talking about their five favourites and I wondered what it's all about. I'm going to take a look at mine and I'll be back. This is wonderful! Thank you for the inspiration as I think it will be fun to look back over my Christmas cards - I certainly made a lot of them this year.
