As my last post of 2010 I thought I would play along with Debby's five favourite of 2010. I hope you like my choice, it was hard. I didn't realise I had made so many cards.
I am off out now so I would like to wish everyone a happy and healthy New Year and look forward to seeing lots of new creations soon on your blogs.

I have just finished this card to take to my Brother-in-law who has a birthday today.
I used Forever Friends bear coloured with Promarkers and Sizzix stars.
I am entering this card into Totally Papercrafts - time to party challenge.

All sorts - Last Minute Christmas

Good evening everyone. I am glad to say our snow is melting, but it is turning colder again and not above freezing all day. I am glad last week is over, it was a horrendous week weather wise. We had so much snow. I was fed up shovelling paths and drives. My husband was out all night on Monday in a queue of traffic stuck on a motorway. He left work on Monday early about 10.30am because the snow was getting very bad and didn't get home till 6.30am Tuesday morning, The temperature plummeted to -14 degrees. But everyone was safe and well in the end.
I have made this card for our grandson Finn. I used this cute image by Mo Manning. The sketch is Mojo Mondays but I think I have mised the challenge. I also used Promarkers, Stickles, Craft Creations paper and the little parcels are Woodware.

I hope you are all snug and cosy ths evening. It is freezing here and snowing again. We must have about 7-8 inches now. I am just about to prepare for the morning. I have looked out my walking boots and gaiters as I will need to walk to work tomorrow. I doubt if the car will be going anywhere for a while.
I have been playing with ideas for quick Christmas cards as time is marching on and I still have plenty to make.
I used this Rubber Stampede stamp I have had for years and quickly coloured it with chalks and glitter.

I have been meaning to post this card with another of Ruth's new images, but I just don't have much time to blog at the moment. I go to my Dads most days after work to check if he is eating and needing anything done. My Dad is keeping not too bad, he is very tired after his treatment and has lost his appetite.
This card was made with Ruth's church. It didn't turn out quite like I wanted but it is pleasing .
I used Papermania papers, Promarkers, Stickles and a PB sentiment.
