Favourite Five Christmas Cards

My
Favourite 
Five
Christmas Cards 2015







I've really struggled this year, don't think my heart was into card making this year, an early New Year Resolution will be Must do Better.

I'm hoping for tons of inspiration from you so join me by blogging your Christmas Favourites don't mind if you are not a card maker as long as its a Christmas theme and handmade craft.

Don't forget to add you blog link to Mr Linky although my candy is a cardmaker one. I will randomly choose a winner around the 5th January so you have plenty of time to link.

It's always lovely to look back over what we have made in the year and your super selection is fabulous Debby. My favourite if I had to choose one in the second card, I love the colour and layers both on the image and the card.
I hope you have a lovely Christmas and a Happy and Healthy New Year.

Pat said...

Five fabulous cards Debby and I think if I had to choose my favourite would be the second card as I love the colour and all the wonderful embellishments it has, and then second would be the crazy bird which is deceptively simple but the background inking which fades away showing that very pretty embossing is so wonderfully smooth and seamless. Thank you for running this lovely challenge again and I will definitely be entering. x

Thanks for hosting another year of your Fave 5.
You picked a sweet bunch yourself, and it is tough to create Christmas cards sometimes this year I found it tough that I made most of mine super late in the year which means I'll try to be better next year :)

You may have struggled to do cards this year but you have done wonderfully with this collection. I love all of them. Thank you for this fab link-up Michelle x

Linby said...

They are all fab as usual - your work is just so beautiful. By a slight margin I am going to pick the bird one as my fav, eventhough I don't really like these stamps - you've used it brilliantly. I'll be back tomorrow to link my five.

Thank you for hosting this again! Love your cards. Have just added mine but messed up my name! It should have read just "Sue" (no. 46)

I don't know how you can even pick your favorites, Debby--all your cards I've ever seen are absolute treasures! Hoping to get a favorites post done this year.

Eemeli said...

Gorgeous top picks from last year's Christmas cards. I think I have to do this same even though this was the year when I made the smallest amount of Christmas cards compared to the years before. Well, let's see if I can find five good ones (I'll add my link here once the post is on my blog).

Hugs,
Eemeli

A lovely selection of cards, Debby. It's been great to visit other blogs too, to see their selection of Christmas cards. I'm sure we will all get lots of inspiration to start making our cards soon for Christmas 2016. :-) xx

Karen Petitt said...

Thank you Debby: I love working and looking back through my cards! This year I was very surprised by my choices as it turns out I'm a bit of a schizophrenic crafter loving CAS and fussy, although not on the same card lol! AS always your cards are wonderful! I know that last year was rough one for you I hope this is much better Karen x
