My Five Favourite (plus!) Cards of 2011

Debby from A Scrap Journey, is up for a challenge, to chose her five favourite cards of 2011. With sooo many gorgeous cards, no wonder she found it so hard! I doubt very much that I'll have that problem! Next year, her challenge will be to chose ten favourites! If you haven't found Debby yet, go now and be mind-blowingly gob-smacked by her wonderful creations. She is one very talented lady! Why not sort out five of your favourite cards and join in! Out of the cards I made this year, here are....
Image by Mo Manning, using paper's from a Craft Magazine and some sticky tape to stop carpets from slipping! As soon as I saw Mo's image and knew what papers I wanted to use, shame they were lost in my 2008 achieves, so glad I found them!
I'm also entering this card into...

I Love Bugaboo Images. It was very hard to chose which Bugaboo card to be my favourite. Here I used Pink Petticoat Spotty papers, own background and coloured with ProMarkers- This was May, Friday the 13th, the day I cracked my tooth on chocolate from the fridge! Today? Waiting for bridgework to be done in the New Year!

Nice Ice Mice
I love House Mouse, they are just too darn cute...I couldn't decide between this card and two another House Mouse cards, they were both green and cream...and this one, so I closed my eyes and pressed delete...this card won!

I made this birthday card for John's sister Deb, as she is cat mad. I was very pleased how the flowers turned out along the bottom...seeing I first had them going down the side~and the card opening the wrong way!

It turns out I have two favourites for last place... I can't decide because they are sooo different. This Penny Black Baby card, which I made using up scraps and....

Walk Like An Egyptian
this Egyptian card. I feel it's a bit of a cheat, it's as though it made it's self! The papers are lovely, inlaid with gold and that gorgeous gilded gold card was just perfect as a die-cut. The black band down the side is self adhesive. The tassel was recycled from a bought card. Coloured with's like walking in to a tomb!
I honestly didn't think I'd find five cards of my own I liked! But looking back, some of them weren't too bad, were they!? Aw....I just had to add one more...

I feel I shouldn't, seeing it's one of my own digi's but I really did love how it turned out. I think it's the bright colours, the papers and those cute school brads that really make it, rather than my drawing! He has glossy accents on his glasses to make them look real. I really liked the blackboard. It was done on the computer, just simply, printed in white on a black background.
Well, those were my favourite five, (plus two!) of 2011...what's yours!?!
