My Fav 5 of 2011

Good morning

Hope you are all well and had a lovely Christmas. Did you have any crafty gifts under your tree?  I got 2 gorgeous paper packs, flowers and ribbons from Marianne and Lynsey and Chris got me some vouchers for my local craft shop so looking forward to spending them in the new year.  

We had a wonderful time but sadly it was all over too quickly and I have been back to work since Wednesday.  However, I am now off until Thurs 5th so am looking forward to spending some family time with Chris and the children before they go back to work and school.  I also have some DT cards to make for a new range Crafter's Companion are launching on 6th January ... if you check back in the next day or so I will have some sneak peeks to share :-)

Anyway today I am once again joining the lovely Debby but this time with my 5 favourite cards from 2011.  So in no particular here they are ...

First up is the adorable Teddy Bea ... I ♥ this image and pretty pink colours.

Next is the Mother's Day card I sent my mum ... how adorable is this LOTV image.

Another Mother's Day card ... this time for my lovely Nan.  I love the colour combo and sweet little SWALK girl.

I ♥ Tatty Teddy so when my daughter asked if I would make a card using this image for her birthday I was happy to oblige.

And finally this one ... Such a cute image and gorgeous papers (both available from Pink Gem Designs).

I am now off to have my hair cut and then we are planning to head off to the coast for a walk on the beach followed by a nice pub lunch or maybe some fish & chips!  We are staying at home tonight so hoperfully I will stay awake to see in the new year ... most years I fall asleep on the sofa lol!

Hope you all have a wonderful New Year's Eve whether you are out partying or, like me, staying at home to see in 2012!
