My Favourite Five Cards

Good Morning. Hope everyone is happy and well. We had the best day in York yesterday even though it rained loads. Greggs for dinner, lots of mooching around the sales and I even managed to get the camera I've wanted for a while, half price! :o) Stopped at a pub on the way home for steak & kidney pudding and chocolate sundae, so all in all a PERFECT day.

I have played along with Debby's Favourite Five Cards of 2012 for the last couple of years so I just had to join in again this year.

Thank You so much Debby for doing this again. You are a star.

So here are mine....

Oh! it was so hard to choose.

Right I'm off to do a spot of tidying up then going to make some cake pops for Bradley's birthday tea party later and hope fully I will get a chance to play with my new Copics, My Hubby surprised me with them on Christmas Day. Hope you all have a lovely day, I will be back for a catch up later.
