Favourite Five of 2012 ....

.....  This time last year I joined in with Debby from A Scrapjourney in picking my favourite cards for 2011, Debby is doing the same again this year - My Favourite Five of 2012.  I seem to remember that it was very tough picking only five cards last year - it's just as hard this year, if not harder!!!

Here are my Five Favourite Cards of 2012 - I could have picked more!!!

My first card is the one I made just over a week ago - it's Ben's Christmas card.  Ben likes cards with lots of layers and details - he was really pleased with this one.  And I was delighted to find that I'd been selected as a Top Mouse with this card.  Full details here.

My second card was made for Jonathan.  I've mentioned a few times that Jonathan's hobby is photography and I made this for him when he went to Las Vagas in October.  Jonathan took lots of lovely photos - which I will scrap this year.  I had lots of fun making this card - full details here.

My third card was one of the quickest I made in 2012!  I saw a card by Michelle Bala that I really liked and I had to CASE it!  It took 30 minutes to make it!  I like the contrast between Michelle's bright and vibrant Christmas card and my pastel thanks card - full details here.

My fourth card is another that I made for Ben - this one was made in September when Ben started his A level courses at college.  I had such fun making this one - full details here.

My final card, and my absolute favourite of 2012 was made for the Play Date Cafe Challenge - PDC154.  It was their third anniversary challenge and I won!!!  I was thrilled to bits!  Full details of this card can be found here.

It's been lots of fun reviewing the cards I made last year.  I tend towards clean and simple when making cards.  But I also like to try out different techniques and styles and this year my favourites are definitely rather more than less!!!  That's all for now.  I intend spending the next couple of days in my craft room tidying up and sorting out my new goodies - got lots for Christmas.  See you tomorrow.
