Favourite Cards 2010

Good Afternoon and a Happy New Year to you all.  Chris and I are not doing anything special tonight just having a nice meal and watching telly.  I might even take the Christmas tree down if there's nothing on.  Stewart and Emily are both going to house parties and staying overnight so we won't see them until tomorrow.  Knowing me I'll be in bed by 10 and be woken by the fireworks at midnight and then won't be able to go back to sleep lol.

Anyway, Debby has set us the challenge of picking our 5 most favourite cards of 2010 and has offered a prize for joining in.  I found it very difficult to pin it down to 5 but here goes.

My first is this baby card.  I haven't done many baby cards but really enjoyed making this one.  Next year there are 3 babies due so you may be seeing a couple of variations of this card very soon.

This Hanglar image I received from a good friend and was hanging on to it until there was a special birthday.  This was for my mum, you can't get more special than your mum, can you.

 One of my favourite Penny Blacks used on an anniversary card for my sister and her husband.

 I loved the colours, papers and layout on this one.  Sugar Nellie stamp cropped as it is so big.  I 'Debbylised' this one with a bit of decoupage.

 Another of my favourite Penny Black stamps.

I can't believe I haven't included any Mo Mannings as I love them too, but stuck to 5 as asked. 

Well hope you all have a lovely evening whatever you are doing.  Best wishes for 2011.

Hubby's Birthday

This is my second card today so please scroll down to see the other.

It was actually Chris' birthday just before Christmas but this is the first time I have had chance to blog it.  Who thinks birthdays at Christmas and New Year should be banned.  I keep trying to make him have a June birthday instead but he is having none of it lol.

I have used the LOTV image 'Pride and Joy' again and coloured with Promarkers.  The papers were a free download from Shabby Princess 'Squares and Dots'.  I am entering it into the LOTV challenge which is to use this fab sketch by Dena.

New Year Birthday

Hope you all had a fabulous Christmas and got lots of lovely crafty pressies. I only got a couple, some new Promarkers from my son, he even took my colour chart with him to make sure he didn't get any duplicates. Then he decided to leave them on the bus and had to go chasing after it lol. Managed to get them though so it all worked out well in the end. Got 4 sets of Nesties off Chris, I told him which ones I wanted and he ordered the correct ones but the Online shop he ordered from sent one of them wrong. I have sent an email to try and sort it out but had no reply yet. Hopefully they will reply tomorrow when we all go back to work.

My card for today is for a lady I work with who will be 60 on New Years Eve.  I have followed the sketch from Friday Sketchers.  The image is from Mo Manning and is Bella Carrying the cake and is coloured with Promarkers.

I am also entering this card into:

Wishing you all a very Happy Christmas and a Fab New Year.

Penny Black Saturday Challenge

Hello, gosh it's been ages since I last made a card. I have put all my crafty stuff away for Christmas so we can use the dining room for what it was meant for lol.  Found out on Friday that a lovely lady at work has just had her full registration come through so she can now apply for jobs as a doctor.  She is already a qualified GP in her home country but had to go through a lot of training and exams to work here so she has been helping me part time with summarising new patient notes and she has been a great help, I have learnt such a lot from her. 

I am entering this card into the Penny Black Saturday Challenge which this week is to use 3 papers, one ribbon and one charm.  The image is 'bubble of joy' and the papers are Stamping Up.  Ribbon, charm and gems from stash.

Freddy's Birthday

I have made this card for my brother-in-law Freddy, it's one of those dreaded male cards.  Freddy doesn't drink or have many hobbies, apart from computers and I have made loads of cards for him with those on so I thought this fabby LOTV image 'Pride and Joy' would be good for him.

I have coloured the image with my favourite Promarkers and used my favourite Cuddly Buddly Sentiments.  I am entering it into this weeks LOTV challenge.
I am also entering this card into the Sweet Stampin' Challenge - Buttons and Bows.
