My Favourite Top 5(oops 10) of 2012

Good morning all.I hope you are all well.Work for me today and yesterday i did indeed have my lazy day, i did do all the drying and washing and ironing but after that we just chilled and watched  films all day so no crafting at all.So the perfect reason today to join DEBBY again, this time showing our Favourite 5 cards of 2012, please do visit Debby`s blog and join in the fun and also for the chance to win some sugar free candy too.Thanks again Debby for the fabulous fun.

Now i did try really, really hard to get just 5 of my favs, i was just going through my pics and adding my favs, i ended up with over 20, oops but i have whittled them down the best i could but there is still more than 5, (cough, mmmmmm 10, shhhh) sorry Debby :D

This was made way back at the beginning of 2012 and i still have this (i think), in one of my big boxes of cards.

I love this beautiful stamp, this was my mums mothers day card this year.

I absolutely love this card and is one i found hard to part with, this one is on display in the Crafty Urchins craft shop in Cheadle.

I had to include this one, as this is a pic of my boyo that i turned into a digi and made into a card fro hubby.

I love the colours on this one and the kaisercraft stamp is beautiful.This one went to a loving home at one of the craft fairs.

Another one that sold at a craft fair, i had people coming back for this one but it had gone.i like the inked edges on this one and gorgeous image.
I love this one, some of my fav colours and my fav flowers too, i had these in my wedding flowers.the stamps are from the wonderful Ruth from a passion for stamps and i still have this in one of my boxes too.

I had a blast making this one for my mum and stepdads wedding anniversary, i just love how this one turned out.
Another of my favs, i love the sunny yellow colours and i was rather pleased with my colouring on this one.i think i have sold this one??? i have 2 huge boxes of cards so can`t be

And finally another vintage card, this one went to a lady i have known for years, it was for her daughters birthday.i love the softness of this one.
And there they are all are, apologies for going over the 5 but i really could not cull any
Thanks so much for popping by, it means a lot.
Catch you all later.
Hugs Nic.xxxxxx
