My Favourite 5 Christmas Cards & Merry Christmas



Well H has open all of his presents, we've walked Whisper in the woods - so as we decided to have dinner later and while H tries to construct his latest Chima / Lego and Alan and Whisper argue over the best position on the sofa and i listen to Paul (The Grinch, well that's what it's saying on the Sky header) O'Grady, i thought i would update my favourite Christmas cards and enter them into the lovely Debby's Challenge that she runs every year, thank you hun.

'Snow Fun'

This is a very special card, as i was fortunate enough to win a 'Joanne Sheen' Challenge, although i must confess i haven't used that MB - 'Snowflake Wreath' die since !! and of course we i've used the gorgeous Bo - 'Snowfall Collection' - you'll see there is a Bo Bunny theme in 3 of my cards !!!

'Joyful Noise'

I so love this little boy and dog and i love how it came together, i sent it to Alan's Dad (as he's into music) and i've used Bo Bunny - 'Midnight Frost' papers. I also got a Top 3 for this card

'Wonderful Christmas'

Some of my PB's seem to really take over a 6" x 6" card (like this one), so it's sometimes hard to know what to do with them !!, i love the gold element in this design and it was my first time of using those fabby Precious Ornaments' and of course my fabby new papers Bo Bunny - 'Silver & Gold Collection'.

'Wishing ...........'

I couldn't not add a dog card - especially as my 'Whisper' has made another Christmas, we think she is about 14 or 15, so every year is precious.  I love making shaped cards too and i sent this one to my best friend in Oz, as she is dog mad too.

'Stocking !'

To us, Christmas is not the same till we have seen our 'Robin' in the garden.  Yes another shaped card and i so enjoyed using the LOTV - 'Kraft Christmas' papers and super check ribbon, and i was fortunate enough to win the Challenge over at 'Moving Along With The Times' and the fabby prize was 2 PB stamps - gee i was in heaven.

Thanks so much for looking and for any comments you would like to leave, would be most appreciated, Luv Sam x
