Some favorites

Good morning all. I sit here having some peace before the rest of the house get up. It's lovely. I am itching to it get started again on  making cards after having a little break. But cant do much at the mo as I have to put all my craft stuff away until Christmas is over. But I think I may have to go and find my pens and some stamps and do some colouring.
I hope everyone has had a fab Christmas and would like to THANK everyone for all the wonderful comments you have all left over the year.
Our snow is melting nicely now. thank god.
Now as I have nothing new to show you at the moment I thought I would just show you a few of my favorite cards I have made over the year.

After uploading these I noticed that most cards with Tilda on all are ones using sweet Tilda. something tells me that this stamp must be one of my favs. Note to self use other Tilda stamps next year..
Well that's just a few of my favs for 2010.

I would like to
and thank you all again for the wonderful comments.
