Favourite 5 Christmas makes of 2016.

Good morning all.
Back at work for me today after a welcome 2 days off spent with family.
My Christmas lunch went down well and me and my laddo have been happily playing board games (Hubby is working nights)
Anyhow it has been a tradition for a number of years to share my top 5 Christmas cards for 2016.
So without further ado.
I`ve not actually made many cards at all this year, just ordered ones really but I have everything crossed that things will be more productive this year.
So onto number 1.

I do have a soft spot for snowmen and this little snowman family by WRS are just adorable.I love the vintage coloured papers too.

No 2 is this gorgeous Robin stamp from the Stampendous winter tweets stamp set.
I just went very simple with this one with layered bright white diecuts layered up.

No3 is using this gorgeous die from Sheena Douglass,,looks simple but actually took  me a while to make as I overlapped a black cutout and white cutout of the dies.

No4 is this beautiful new digital stamp by Hannah Lynn, this time going for a tag and soft pastel colours, I love the snowflakes dies by Sweet Dixie.
No5, it wouldn`t be a top 5 without my all time favourite stamp.
This is just a classic that looks good in any colour.This year I used inktense pencils to add a little colour to the image for a change.
Thankyou so much for popping by.
Don`t forget to share you favourite Christmas cards fro 2016.
Hugs Nic.
