My top 10 of 2010 Blog Hop

Hi all- hope you are all having a fabulous Christmas.
     I thought I would play along with SUZI's Blog Hop, which is to show your favourite 10 cards of 2010.
Well, it was this year I fell in love with watercolouring with distress inks and mostly Magnolia's which I have really taken a shine to AND best of all been offered a place on their Design Team.

 Here's my top 10
 1). This card I loved making for as part of  MDUC Design Team. It also won a place over on Stampartics Walk of Fame.

2).This card was another fave to make and won two challenges. It got card of the month on Just Magnolia and aslo won MDUC. The week after I joined them as a DT member which is such an honour. 
3).This card was using the WOJ stamps which I chose when I was Guest DT member for WOJ.
4). I made this one for my cousins anniversay. I adore anything with hearts.
5). I was experimenting with this card below and to my surprise it won Just Magnolia 'Card of the Month'
6).This has got to be in fave top ten this year. My Mum and Dad's Christmas Card. It represents the real meaning of Christmas.

7). This was another winner of a couple of Challenges and a favourite stamp of mine from this years Christmas Collection.
8). The same stamp again. Definately a favourite.
9). Oh yes do you remember this card?? It seems ages since I made this butterfly easel, but was only back in April.

10). This is one of my personal favourite cards this year,because I really let loose with the inks on the background and loved the result!! And my first Edwin!!!lol
 Can I als thankyou ALL for following my blog and for leaving me such encouraging comments this year.
