My Favourite 5 of 2010...

Morning all,

I hope everyone had a good New Year's Eve whatever you were doing?  Good job I scheduled my Sketch Saturday post yesterday - man my head hurt lol!!  But a very fun evening  :o)

So as I'm feeling human again today I thought I'd join along with Debby's Favourite 5 of 2010.  You just need to choose your favourite 5 cards (or near to 5 if you can't choose 5!) and post them.  So here are mine in no particular order.....all 10 of them!  (sorry Debby!)

February 2010 - This is Hubby's Valentines Card.  I really like the layout of this one and of course the Penny Black stamp!!

March 2010 - I made this card for my God Mum's Hubby.  I love the Doodlebug papers, layout and colouring on this one, and it reminds me of spring!

April 2010 - I made this one for my friend's daughter.  Again I love the Penny Black stamp and the layout of this one.  It was the first time I put ribbon behind the buttons too and I was really happy with how that turned out.

June 2010 - I love the simplicity of this card and I think the colour scheme is really striking.

July 2010 - This was my first commissioned card for a friend of mine to give to her Sister-In-Law on her 50th birthday.  I was so nervous making it but really happy how it turned out and my friend loved it and asked for more cards!!  Charleston Tilda rocks  ;o)

July 2010 - This is my absolute favourite card of 210 that I made for my Dad for his 60th Birthday.  I used 3 8x8 inch cards to make it and decided on a 'This is Your Life' type card which illustrated some of the major (and silly minor!) events in Dad's life.  It took a whole weekend to make but I really love the result and so did Dad  :o)

September 2010 - This was my 2nd card I made as a Sketch Saturday DT Member.  Sooooo chuffed to be on the Design Team!!  I made it for our best friends who celebrated their 1st Wedding Anniversary and love the layout, papers and Elzybells stamp on this one.

November 2010 - I made this card for another friend's daughter - I love the bunting and especially Pirate Tilda, oo-arrrrrr!

November 2010 - This one I made for my Brother-In-Law, it's a shaker card.  I love 'Fluffy' and was voted a Pollycraft Favourite with this one  :o)

December 2010 - A very recent card of mine and already a favourite!!  I think this stamp is wicked and love these papers (sorry if I've bored you by using them on so many cards - I've even bought more, lol!)

I hope you've enjoyed taking a walk down memory lane with me today.  Looking back at my cards has got me thinking about lighter evenings and warmer weather - roll on spring!  Normally at the start of the year I'm feeling quite down but this year I feel so alive and can't wait for the coming year - I do hope it's a good one...

Lots of love everyone, see you all soon.  I think I'm going to make my first card of 2011!!...
