My Favourite Five Christmas Cards of 2014


I love Mo's Valerie so perfect for quick cards and easy to colour but still allows me layer the image.


I love how this card turned out, I used normal Prima papers and some dies, can't believe it turned out so well.


Although the die was really tricky to use, I was really proud how lovely this turned out, so much I still have it couldn't bear to be parted from it maybe next year I will be able to give away.


When I discovered that the stamp set from Simon Says Stamps Be Joyful had a snowfalling stamp I was over the moon and quick cards like my leftover tree suddenly was made much easier than using embossing paste.

My favourites have to include a  Penny Black somewhere and this one is that pipped the post.


You may have noticed that I have 6 cards this last one although not 'my' favourite it needs a special mentioned. First of it was a DT card for Simon Says Stamp which was for a Shaker card
I don't like making shaker card they usually end up leaking. What was amazing that this card was pinned 1946 just from Simon Says Stamp Pinterest Board and it was view 1873 times on Splitcoast Stampers. So I reckon this must be my most sucessful card I ever made.

To win my candy just add to Mr Linky your post of your favourite Christmas Creations, one rule they have to be made by you and in 2014.


Thank you everyone for being patience with me this year, I haven't been a good blogger this year, I promise to try my best for next year.
THIS IS NOW CLOSED PLEASE DON'T ADD TO MR LINKY

  4. Wonderful cards Debby - no wonder you posted six, I would have had big troubles choosing only 5 (or even 6) of your cards as favourites. You really are an inspiration! I managed to narrow my own favourites down to five, so they are posted and linked. Thanks for running this candy!

    Merry Christmas to you and your loved ones!

    Hugs,

  12. A really lovely selection Debby. I think it must be difficult to choose just five as the cards you make are all beautiful and you have some really lovely dies too. I will definitely be joining in. x

  13. Every card you make always inspires me, and I'm probably a bad blogger too as I visit all of your posts, but skip off without commenting too often myself. Life is sometimes too hectic to do all we'd like to do! I love this collection, and can certainly understand the shaker card being repinned so many times! Count me among those numbers - I pinned it too :) Thanks for your generosity and I wish you and yours a very Merry Christmas!l.

  90. Well, I have just linked my entry Debby, very late in the day and very late at night! I do love your five choices but I think my two favourite cards - I couldn't pick just one - are the lovely young lady in green with those gorgeous die cut flowers as she is just a little different, and the wow card with the same die cut poinsettias on which is really so elegant. x

  91. For some reason, Debby, I had trouble linking up, and my name appears x 2. #98 is correct, but #97 links back to your blog??? Would you mind deleting it (#97)...so sorry for the confusion.

    Your cards are ALL lovely, so how did you manage to choose just 5?? I adore the 'Santa Hedgy' card, and the 'green lady' card is so elegant.

    Wishing you and your family a very happy New Year.
