My Favourite Five of 2012....

Hiya all...Hope you had a wonderful Christmas and now looking forward to seeing in the new year.
We had a fabulous Christmas over at my Mum and Dads, was really lovely to all spend time together just chilling out and catching up.I had  few new crafty goodies, so a happy bunny and have Christmas money to spend...now will I spend it on more crafty goodies or something else decisions, decisions lol...

I,m joining in again this year with the lovely talented Debby, to share My Favourite Five of 2012.


Can't believe how long this took for me to decide my favourite 5....Oops 6, sorry Debby just couldn't get it to 5.

Love the soft colours of these gorgeous My Minds Eye papers and these two little birdies are so adorable...Wee Stamps-Bird Swing... Original post here


Now I couldn't have a favourite 5 without a fab Digi Stamp Boutique image, was so hard choosing.
This one was made for my wonderful hubby for Valentines Day using the adorable Barney and heart..Original post here


If I had to chose my favourite stamp, it would probably be this  LOTV one called Never Too for a Hug, it's sooooo adorable and loving all the gorgeous First Edition paper pads, seem to have collected a few throughout 2012. Original post here.


I am so excited to have found Di's Digi Downloads, I have totally fallen in love with all of Di's gorgeous and adorable images and will be using lot's more throughout 2013.I love the colours on this one and was pleased with my clouds. Original post here


Another one using a Di's Digi Download called Mouse with love, pleased with the colouing on this one. Loving all the MFT Die-namics dies, this Pretty Posies flower die is one of my favourites. Orignal post here 


And  finally this one was a commissioned card, was asked to make a 70th Birthday card for someone who loves teddy's, but not too girly, thankfully it was loved. Orignal post here

Wishing you all a Happy New Year.

Thanks for stopping by
Hugs
