This fortnight's challenge theme is to showcase a project using 
Your Favourite Animal (& why).
You MUST explain WHY it is your favourite.

Here are the beautiful creations made by our Design Team to get your mojo flowing:


I've always loved donkeys. I was a huge fan of Winnie the Pooh as a youngster and Eeyore was my favourite. We also live fairly close a lovely donkey sanctuary and I love going there. They're such lovely animals, and despite many being treated fairly poorly they still love human contact and come running over to see you if you go to visit them.  I'd love to have enough land to re-home a couple of donks!  Maybe one day (and a lottery win!).  





OK, I'm just going it say it, this is an impossible challenge.  I love animals, all animals (well almost all animals).  I guess for purposes of this challenge, I'm going to say bunnies. I love bunnies in real life and I love The Cat's Pajamas Bunny because he is always into something and he has such personality!





Elaine


I love lots of animals but hedgehogs are a firm favourite with my family. We used to go out in the evening to find them with our children when they were young.




Larissa


This was an easy challenge, because my all time favourite animal is a mouse. When I was young, my mother used to call me mouse and since then I really love mice (not the real ones though ;) ). I have collected all kinds of mice stuff like books, stuffed animals, cards etc. Now I really love making cards with a cute mouse on them. They are just so cute and tiny.



I love most animals, but my favourite has to be dogs. If they're like mine they can be so cuddly, affectionate and funny and be great companions.



I love all animals so decided to choose the animals that I share my life with (excluding a donkey...I couldn't find one with a horse, dog and cat!!)
I love ALL animals (animals I classify as having fur) and although my favourites are cats and squirrels, I could not resist using this quirky moose







So now it's over to you.
We hope you will join in our challenge, show us your style and
showcase Your Favourite Animal (& why).
You MUST explain WHY it is your favourite.

Good luck, and happy crafting.
Hugs from the AYLI girls.

This fortnight's challenge theme is to showcase a project using 
Your Favourite: Xmas Colour Combo (& why).
You MUST explain WHY it is your favourite.

Here are the beautiful creations made by our Design Team to get your mojo flowing:


Using Snowman Friends
I love pink at any occasion, but I think it's especially lovely at Christmas. I love the softness of this non-traditional colour with the white snow.



I love nontraditional Christmas colors and one of my favorite color combinations is soft blue, pink and green.  I love they way the mimic nature and just work so well with cute, girly images like Winnie.




Elaine

Using Winnie Winterland - Fairy Christmas
I make my Christmas cards in a variety of styles. One of my favourites is blue and white with a touch of silver. I love the fresh icy feel of winter.




Most of my christmas cards are made in the traditional christmas colours. I really love the combination of red and green. Red is one of my favourite colours and I love how it makes an image pop.





Lynne

using Winnie Winterland - Frosty the Snowman

I like blue and white and also this lilac and aqua combination. I think it's such a pretty combo and can be used for any occasion, but it also looks wintery for Christmas cards.



I usually stick to traditional colours for my own Christmas makes. There is just something about the holly leaf green and berry  red that makes me happy.



For me, it has to be the traditional red, green, and cream, I just love
the warmth and richness of them together, and it makes me feel cosy





Using Snowman & friends
I love the traditional Christmas colours red/green/white/cream. They give me a happy and nostalgic feeling. 



So now it's over to you.
We hope you will join in our challenge, show us your style and
showcase Your Favourite: Xmas Colour Combo (& why).
You MUST explain WHY it is your favourite.

Good luck, and happy crafting.

Your Favourite: Xmas or Non-Xmas (& why).
You MUST explain WHY it is your favourite.

Here are the beautiful creations made by our Design Team to get your mojo flowing:


I love making Christmas cards as I love embellishing my projects with glitter and snow.  I also love non-traditional Christmas colours for my festive cards, like pink and purples. 





I love making things and I love Christmas but as most of the teamies 
have made christmas cards I thought I would take the opportunity to have some crochet fun, I made a crochet Guardians of the Galaxy character GROOT
I love making Christmas cards, I love Christmas.  I think I am mesmerized by all the beautiful sparkle you can use on Christmas cards.  I always go a bit overboard in purchasing new stamps, their is always such an abundance of wonderful new release sets around the holidays.

Definately Christmas. I love all the products and adding some sparkle. 

At the moment I really love making christmas cards. I love using all those cute christmas images and working with lots of shimmer. I really like making christmascards in traditional colours, but for today I decided to do something else. 



I love making Christmas cards. I can make them all through the year when I don't have many other occasions and I love to add the glitter too.




I am so behind with my Christmas cards this year that I just had to choose Christmas. It is also an excellent excuse to ink up some of the stamp sets that have been collecting dust since last Christmas!!



Because I've been surrounded by Christmas since June, I do love making non-Christmas
cards as a refreshing change, just to step away from the penguins and Santas, and to
recharge the batteries





Wilma
Definitely Christmas. I love the season and all the Christmas decorations.



So now it's over to you.
We hope you will join in our challenge, show us your style and
