Favourite Five of 2015

Hello!

Last week Debby did her Favourite Five Christmas cards and this week it's the Favourite Five Cards so I'm joining in this week too.

Are these my favourites? Again, it was hard to pick. Some were definite no's right from the start but I got it down to 13 and then asked for a second opinion.

Who doesn't love a Minion?


The card I made for Craig's drama teacher who was leaving. Really loved this.


And this definitely made it to the short list before I asked for a second opinion. Loved the Harry Potter wedding card and had such fun making it!


And a birthday card for a selfie daft girl :) 



And again, this one made it to the short list, love this wee fairy! 


I'll be back tomorrow with the last card of the year and the last Sugar Bowl challenge for this year!

Five Favourite Christmas Cards

Hello.

It's Tuesday, Andy has gone back to work so it's me and the boys for the next couple of days.  

So every year the lovely Debby shares her Favourite 5 Christmas cards and asks blogland to join in so this is what I'm up to today!

Are these definitely my favourites? I don't know! I loved most of the Christmas cards in their own way so I tried not to analyse my decision too much!

James and Santa Sign.



Pippi - love this wee bird!



One of the simplest cards I made but one of the most effective.




This one is DEFINITELY my favourite!



Fairly simple WOW card, love this one too.



So there we are, my entry to Debby's Five Favourite Christmas Cards for this year.  Hope you enjoyed it. It's taught me one thing, I need to be more organised in my filing!!!




Oops

Morning!

I forgot about this wee dude when I was sharing my Christmas cards.

This is the one I made for Scott's teacher because she likes cats (although Scott thinks that the inage isn't a cat....)

It's Christmas!

Hello.

I wasn't intending to pop back today, but I remembered I needed to schedule my Sweet Stampin' post for tomorrow (not sure I'll be awake at 8am!!)

So, 3.5 years ago, Cass and I had the pleasure of going up to Perth to spend the day in the company of some fabulous crafty ladies for Girls Just Want To Have Fun. We both bought a wee house with the intention of decorating them.... and so fast forward to October and Cass decided to do hers for Hallowe'en which inspired me to take a look at mine and plan a Christmas one. Yet somehow, I was finishing it on Wednesday! I love it though, I am really pleased with how it turned out.








 Thanks for dropping by today.



Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas everyone.

Every blessing to you

Santa Baby

Morning.

It's Christmas Eve!! Yay. Still not organised..... well, the food shopping is done, so that bit is but the rest is not....

As we look forward to celebrating that First Christmas I thought I'd share the cards I was asked to make for some First Christmasses. 

The first three are for the same girl - a daughter, grand-daughter and a great grand-daughter card. The last is for twins who are celebrating their first Christmas.

Don't Be So Elfish

Hello.
 
I'm taking a quick break from the madness to blog this wee card I made yesterday. It was crafty night last night as we *might* be a bit busy on Thursday.
 
So I had a card for Cass. Then on Monday night I decided to make a new one! Yeah, and not a particularly simple one either..... as if I didn't have enough to be going on with I give myself more work to do.  No matter, what resulted is one of my most favourite Christmas cards. Might even be one of my most favourite cards ever.

Rockin Around The Christmas Tree

Hello.
 
Well that's it, I've stopped work for the holidays. That's me until 5th January :) Such a lovely feeling. If only I was organised it would be an even better feeling!!
 
These two cards were made for the same family - there's a bit of an argument going on about which are the better band... Slayer or 1D. I know where my money goes :)
 
Bet you never thought you'd ever see a Christmas card with Slayer on it eh?!
