My Five Favourite Christmas Cards of 2014

Over on A Scrapjourney blog, Debby has challenged us to choose our five favourite Christmas cards from 2014..... not as easy as I thought, but here are mine. 

1
 I chose this card because the Spring Fold is one of my favourite folds at the moment. I love the cute Little Claire image too. 

2
This was a one off card I made for a crafty friend who adores glitter and has every imaginable colour!  I used two dies at the same time and was pleased how it turned out.  It really was very glittery - I kept finding the black glitter from the glitter card for days!!

3
 This next card was the first time I'd tried using inks to get a snow drift effect.   I love this particular Lavinia stamp too.

4
 I chose this one because I love the simplicity of the design.  It's a beautiful die and needs very little added to the card to get an elegant look. 

5
Finally, this took my right out of my comfort zone - paper piecing - a new technique for me.

This will be my final post of 2014.  Thank you to everyone who has visited my blog this year, I have really appreciated all your lovely comments.   I wish you all a happy, healthy and creative 2015!
