This fortnight's challenge theme is to showcase a project using 
Your Favourite Domestic 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:



After Big Cats last week, it's no surprise that my favourite domestic animal is the cute and cuddly kitty cat!  We are slaves to two of our own feline furballs, Jenson and Pickle who are, of course, spoilt rotten (and we wouldn't have it any other way!).  One furry lap snuggle and every ounce of the day's naughtiness is instantly forgiven (and there's usually a lot of naughtiness requiring forgiveness).








I don't have any pets right now, but I'm in the market for a puppy.  I chose dogs as my favorite because they will walk me on a daily basis.




Cats..for me, cats, I loved my dog but I LOVE my cat, she is my world..







I don't have any pets now, but I have chosen dogs because my daughter has two of Springer Spaniels. They are mad as hatters and full of energy. They just love the outdoors. 







I don't have animals myself and my favourite animal has always been a mouse, but lately I also have found a love for bees. I just love it when I see a cute bee image, so for today I decided to go for a sweet little bee.




It's dogs for me.  We have two and they are so loving and loyal and are just happy to be in your company.



This was tough but my dogs tipped the balance. We've had dogs in our Family since I was pregnant 33 years ago and haven't been without a dog since. There is nothing quite like their loyalty and they know exactly how you are feeling and are ever ready to cheer you up when times are tough.



I'm an amateur crazy cat lady I'm afraid, have always had a cat in my life (even if it was mine but not living with me - long story).  I've owned a couple of dogs over the years, but my heart belongs to those cute, furry, overlords, who let us share their house.






As with previous animal challenges, I'm going for cats. I am a cat person. 15 years ago I had persian cats. Unfortunately I don't have cats anymore because we are away from home a lot.



So now it's over to you.
We hope you will join in our challenge and show us your style.
Don't forget, you MUST explain WHY it is your favourite to be eligible to win.

Good luck, and happy crafting.

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



This is a tough one as I am really fond of koalas and kangaroos, but for me it has to be the Big Cats.  Technically tigers have long been my favourite wild animals, but since they're mainly native to Asia I've opted for Leo, the King of the Jungle to represent my Big Cat theme instead.






I had to chose the lion also.  It's really the mama lions I admire so, they take such fiercely good care of their cubs.   




My wild animal that I love the most is a Koala Bear and I held one once when I went to Australia..soft and cuddly..






I have chosen an African animal. Zebras have the most beautiful stipe patterns and all different. This cute one is great for a whole host of occasions. 







I have picked a koala for this challenge. The look very cute and soft and I would love to cuddle with them. It was a difficult thing to pick just one animal, so many animals have something special.





I have chosen elephants.  They are such gentle giants and don't deserve to be hunted for their tusks.


 Being a child of the 70's I absolutely loved Skippy (the bush kangaroo), it was always on TV during the holidays. Anyway I didn't have a kangaroo in my stash so I have chosen to use a cute and cuddly koala!!



Being practical about this, I thought of all my favourite African and Australian animals and then narrowed it down by which one was I most likely to ever be able to cuddle.
Koala!  Although I've heard a rumour they will wee on you.  I'll chance it.




No hard choice for me. On our trip through Australia we saw a lot of kangaroos. I had the chance to cuddle with baby kangaroo in the Zoo of Steve Irwin. 
Just like Chrissy I also had the chance to cuddle with a koala bear. Great experience.



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

This fortnight's challenge theme is to showcase a project using 
Your Favourite: Fur, Feathers or Scales (& why).
You MUST explain WHY it is your favourite.

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



Although I did enjoy the chickens we had, and I like watching the garden birds, I'm generally not fond of things that flutter around me, and since I'm scared of most things with scales there's really no surprise that my choice is fur!  Plus there's nothing quite like an evening snuggle with a furbaby (or two) for company!






Though I love dogs and cats and canʻt wait to get another dog, itʻs feathers for me right now.  I have had several very lovable birds in my lifetime including a parrot that I credit preventing a robbery.  Someone kicked in the door of my home, but nothing was touched.  He stood guard near the door and probably let out an ear splitting noise of some sort with all the ruckus.  


I love my cat and I loved my dog when I had him, but I really love birds,I had a bird called Monty and he could talk the phonebook..so birds for me.






Fur is my all time favourite. Love all the cute images that are always a joy to colour. 






I love fur the most, because I love the feeling it gives when you pet a sweet dog or cat. Unfortunately I am allergic, so I can't have my own dog or cat, but I can't help myself when I am visiting someone that has a cat or dog: I just have to pet it.....and then sneeze a lot! I love that when I craft I still can have a cat or dog and it doesn't make me sneeze. ;)





Colouring wise and in real life I prefer fur.  There are so many cute images out there to colour and when our two dogs have been groomed I can't believe how soft and fluffy they are and love having them next to me for a cuddle.



Feathers and scales...not a big fan!! animals with fur are most definitely my favourite kind. The soft fur on my Sprollie boys' heads feels as soft as a kitten and my ponies' noses are velvety. I have never got up close and personal with a squirrel but I imagine that fluffy tail to be suitably soft and furry!!



Soft and fluffy fur!  I quite like feathers themselves, but am nervous of birds, they are so delicate, except for chickens, chickens are sneaky and evil.  Scales are attached to things that freak me out (sorry to the tortoises), so fur it is, it's soft, it's strokeable, it's warm, it's usually wrapped around something I'd like to cuddle.






I do love feathers: feeding and watching the birds in our garden. I do love scales: feeding the fish in our pond but my favorite is fur. I love cats for their fur and their attitude.


So now it's over to you.
We hope you will join in our challenge and show us your style.
Don't forget, you MUST explain WHY it is your favourite to be eligible to win.
