my 5 favourite christmas cards - 2011

Good morning all.well i have been up since just after 6am this morning.
the first stage of the trifles are in the fridge, the custard layer to do tonight and the cream will be done just before serving.yum
i am now going to join in with the fun over on debbys blog and show you my 5 fav christmas cards of 2011.
i first joined in with debby`s fab idea last year and so really wanted to join in again.
after much debating and getting my list of 9 down to 5 eventually, here are my 5 fav christmas cards for this year,
in no particular order :D
1) this is  probably one of my fav stamps this christmas and i have enjoyed colouring her hair in all unusual colours, i also love the memory box die and white on white, oh and sparkle.
   2)i love the yummy papers on this one which i won from the fabulous mina and the gg image is so sweet.
3)just gotta love this fabulous santa stamp by molly bloom.hes quite a challenge to colour but i enjoyed it.this is hubby`s card
4,this one is using cheeky chester and i love the yummy papers and punches i won from the fabulous christine.
this is little mans christmas card.

   5) and finally this one which is my mums and dads card,i love the beautiful poinsettas designed by ruth and the crushed glass glitter really sparkles irl.

so there are my top 5.
i can`t wait to see your top 5.
pop over to debbys blog (link at the top) and join in the fun :D
