My Favourite Five Christmas Cards

Hello There!

I know I am a day or so late, but Seasons Greetings to you all.  I hope your Christmas has been  jolly and fun. 

I was just wandering around in Blogland and came across a certain Mistress of the Keys of the Snippets Playground's post where she shared five of her favourite cards with Debby of A Scrapjourney.  So I thought I would join in with this one as I have shared one or two Christmas cards with you over the year. (I have some more which are still on the camera but I will get to those in the next week or so).

So here they are in no particular order...

This owl is adorable and was stamped for me by Miss Di when we were at the WOYWW Crop all those months ago.

This was made using my Spellbinders Bauble die and matching stamps which I bought when I won a voucher from a certain Darnell Lady on her inaugural NBUS Challenge.

Made as part of the Funkie Junkie 12 Tags of Christmas Challenge which were going so well until I fell victim to the nasty Sinus Infection and then horrid cold straight after!

This one was made using my lovely new Penny Black stamp I bought on my Jolly Holiday over the pond.  

And I could not resist popping this one in, again made using my bauble dies and Tim Holtz stamp which was a NBUS despite having it for several ahem! years!!

I do have another card which would also count as a favourite but I haven't shared it yet as I only finished it on Christmas Eve to give to my Honeybun but I will share that probably tomorrow.

Thanks Debby for hosting this one.  I have enjoyed looking back at my cards again.  No doubt I will pick some of these ideas and recreate for Christmas 2015!!

If I don't see you before may I wish all of you a Happy and Healthy 2015! (I have given up with the "prosperous" bit as we are all crafters who like to buy new toys!!)  Thank you for being a visitor whether it be regular or irregular, or as a Follower.  It has been lovely to read all your comments.  I greatly appreciate them.

some stunning cards, pleased I don'r have to choose one.
I asked my d-i-l about the toilet seat Father Xmas you saw on my blog. She will ask her Mum who bought it and if possible, I will let you know where she bought it from.

Super picks mate. Of course I am biased about one of them as it found its way to me for Christmas!

Five absolute crackers (forgive me!) - maybe the last one my favourite (or another very delicate MB tree one that I have proudly displayed!)...

Prosperity IS a full craft stash, surely?!

Wishing you a wonderful 2015 (with a rendezvous in Abergavenny hopefully).

A lovely choice of cards, I think the last two would be my favourite ones as I like the vintage style.
I hope you are fully recovered now and wish you a Happy Healthy and Creative New Year.

Five stunners here and a huge reminder to me that I have the PB Owl and I think I may use it for my eldest Grandson's school pals, well either that or the other two stamps I had already decided on lol.
That red and gold bauble is gorgeous and so is the Santa.

Happy & Healthy New Year to you and your Honeybun!

A stunning collection of cards. I love the vintage Santa but the expression on the owl's face is making me smile.
Well 2015 is nearly upon us so I want to take a wee moment to wish you all the very best for the new year - here's to it being kind to you.

A fabulous selection of cards!
It is always so fun to look through them once again.

Love them all, but think the vintage Santa and the stag are my faves!
