I've just seen a blog post here about the favourite 5 Christmas makes made in 2013, so thought that I would join in the challenge.

For me, my top make has to be my Christmas bauble wreath, which in real life looks stunning, and is something that will hopefully last for many years:

I'd like to enter my wreath into the current Crafting for all Seasons Challenge -  anything Christmas, but a card.

In terms of cards it has to be these three:

and finally the snowman with bells image, that I used on a number of this year's Christmas Cards:

My overall favourite card of the year I made though has to be this one, that was made for a colleague at work's partner Tony, who is a huge Dr Who fan, and for whom Ian couldn't find an appropriate card at the time.  Queue being asked to make a card, and a few ideas of what it should include.  This is the masterpiece that I created (!).  Tony was apparently thrilled with it, and it was the only one that was allowed on the bookcase, and not the window sil on the day, and the only one that he has kept!

I love doing newspaper style cards, and now I've done a few, and have templates set up, this one took a couple of hours from start to finish.  All the images came from 'google' and all I did was cut out the tardis 3 times and layered them up using foam pads.  I tried to make a darlik badge using an image and glossy accents, and was thrilled with the results.
