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.

This is a commisioned Christmas card which I was to encorporate a Scottish theme.
I used Woodware robin stamps and coloured them with Promarkers, Cuttlebug Dots and Nesties. The robins breast is Diamond Glazed. I made little thistles to fit the snowflake centres, I think they are cute...

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.
