My 5 favorite cards for 2012

My pick of the cards I made in 2012
Just loved the colours in this one and I have more of that paper so you will see it again.
This was made for a 60th wedding anniversary and yes I made the roses and the
quilled the bells that were glittered inside. 

Another requested card.  That black and limeade card go together so well.

Have really fallen in love with this LOTV image be prepared to see more of him.

Then my one and only easel card for the year.

Well that is it the year in brief wonder what 2013 holds.

A very happy New Year to everyone who passes by this way.

And a big thank you to all my followers and all who leave such welcome comments.

Very plain and simple

 Hope everyone had a lovely family Christmas
and may 2013 be good to you all.
We are supposed to have rain for the next few days
but I will believe that when I see it.
So far we have missed out although they have had plenty in the north of the state.

The colours have not come out very true in this photo unfortunately.
I am blaming the photographer.
It is very plain but nothing I tried looked right so plain it will have to be.
I am entering this in:
In the pink #10 - Pink and pearlie
Make it Monday - Always anything goes.
Thanks for dropping in you are most welcome

My favorite 5......

......well perhaps but I kept changing my mind.

I just love this Tilda so I had to include her.
I made a lot of these and they prove to be a big hit
with everyone who received one
so I had to include it.

This one drew quite a lot of comment from my blogging friends so
he had to be included too.

I couldn't leave out my squirrel choir.
What is Christmas without a few carols?

This was made for a penfriend I have had for over 40 years.
Mauve being her favorite colour.
Well there you have it Debby my 5.
Try as I might I just cannot get your favorite 5 banner to come up on my post. 
It is not the computer it must be me.
Hope you had a wonderful Christmas.

These are a little different.......................

.......................from my usual cards I am trying to
take a step away and I am really pleased with how they look.
Must say I do like the die that I used.

We have had some beautiful weather but have to admit
when it reaches 25 I have had it.
Should be alright for Christmas day as the forecast is for 18.

May I thank everyone who has stopped by my blog and left me a comment
this year.  I have tried to return all of your visits
but do confess to getting side track quite easily when blog hopping.
May each and everyone of you have a very happy Christmas
and all the very best to you and your families for 2013.

with my beloved Penny black flower coloured with Tombows in colours to
match the matt card.


I am entering these in:

Penny Black and more at allsorts - It is your choice.
Challenges 4 everybody- Anything goes.
Make it Monday - Anything goes linky party

Sorry about the photo in the frame......... it is not the best, but the only one I could find in a hurry that matched the colours.
My photo is not the best either too sunny here to get true colours,
the blue in the left hand corner is the nearest to real life.
The chipboard photo frame is from Kaszazz and goes together very easily.
The large flower and the flourish are both from Die-namics
The large butterfly is from Petaloo
The small ones have been painted with Smooch glitz.

A lovely change from Christmas cards.

Am entering it in:
Make it Monday - Anything goes linky party
Challenges 4 everybody - Anything goes.

Thank for dropping in you are most welcome.
