My Favourite Five Christmas Cards 2011

Debby over at a Scrap Journey has challenged us to show our favourite five Christmas cards we have made in 2011.  Oh my goodness me I've certainly struggled with picking 5.  I got to 8 and then had to leave it a while.  In the end I have gone for the following:

Card No 1
This is the card I made for my husband.  It is a House Mouse decoupage and was for my husband.  We've been married 20 years now and he's seen me through good times and bad times and especially during the last six months since the sudden death of my mum

Card No 2
This is a Sweet Pea Stampers design Team card and it had to be for an nontraditional Christmas card.  I had this card in mind for a friend who loves purple like me but I chose the additional colour of lime green.  It sounds revolting but it seemed to work well.

Card No 3
This is a card I made for a good friend who has acquired the role of Auntie to our two boys over the years.  She does like traditional Christmas cards like me but she's got a serious House Mouse addiction like me!!!

Card No 4
This is the Christmas card I made for my aunt and uncle.  I had over 20 years of not being in contact with my aunt due to a family rift but now we are as close as ever.

Card No 5
I recently have fallen in love with the saturated Canary digital images designed by Krista.  I have chosen this card as one of my five favourites as I kept the colour tone to white, black and greys.

Do you feel like showing your favourite five Christmas cards for 2011.  If you do please go and visit Debby's blog.  She is offering some candy for a random winner who links up their favourite cards.
