It's definitely pingus for me! 
What's not to love about these cute tuxedo-wearing waddlers!





In a recent challenge, I let everyone know how much I love teddy bears, so I chose a Christmas bear.  They are so cute and cuddly.


 

My favourite critter by a country mile is Barry..
He is a little charmer..






I love these Christmas puppies. They are ideal for my Daughter and Son in law's Christmas card as they have 2 springer spaniels. The only difference is Lupin and Rosie are not that quiet for long!






It won't be a surprise that I have chosen for a 2 little mice. A mouse has always been my favourite animal. I think they are really adorable and I love their funny big ears. 







It has to be a reindeer for me and especially one with a red nose! It wouldn't be Christmas without a Rudolph.





Without question my favourite christmas critter is the lovely James!! Christmas just wouldn't be the same if I didn;t ink one of my LOTV grey rubber James stamps.

I do love a teddy for Christmas, something cuddly, cheery, and comfy to hug




My favorite Christmas critter is a (Penny Black) cat. I have several really cute Christmas cats from Penny Black. This is one of my favorite. They are so cheery.

This fortnight's challenge theme is to showcase a project using 
Your Favourite Christmas Colours (modern or traditional) & 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 Polar Bear from Winter Wonderland bundle
Although I can apprecaite the warmth of deep reds, golds and evergreens at Christmas, I really love soft pinks and purples at Christmas too. I've used one of my favourite wintry papers on this pastels card with some pink accents.






I love Christmas in any color, but tend to make cards with traditional Christmas colors.  I love them because right away, red and green make me think of my favorite time of the year, Christmas!




I used to be very traditional but my favourite these days is modern,
especially white and grey..






I usually make Christmas cards in traditional colours, but occasionally I use something different. I like this combination of a moss green and a deep pinks. It is still festive. 







Using Sponsor Image: Holly Mouse
I love making christmas cards in traditional colours. I really love the red, because it really pops!




I like to use modern colours now again for a change from red and green and my favourite colours are lilac/purple.  This shade goes so well with silver.



I tend to favour cute and whimsical images so, more often than not, I team them with more modern colours. For these two I have used adorable penguins from our lovely sponsor Amanda Jayne Designs.



I flip-flop between modern and traditional colours, and this year, for me, traditional
are back in favour.  There's just something so Christmassy about the reds and greens with the occasional sprinkle of gold.




My favorite Christmas colors are the traditional colours. But I also like to make Christmas cards in modern colours. Preferably in blue.
For this challenge I'm going for the colours green and red.




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.

Your Favourite: Snowmen or Santa (& 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 find white challenging to colour, I much prefer the cuteness of a snowman than a jolly Father Christmas (sorry Saint Nick!), so today I'm sharing my Christmas Countdown calendar featuring one of the Advent Characters from Lili of the Valley from our lovely sponsors Lili of the Valley.





Iʻm a fan of both Santa and Snowmen.  I went with a Snowman because I have been gifted with several new Snowmen stamps.  I love that they are always so happy and such wonderful messengers of holiday joy.




I love a good snowman as much as I love Santa,
 so, I let the dice roll and Santa won this year,,and
one of my favourite vintage style one.






I love snowmen and Santa equally, so this time I have made a card with a Santa.
All children associate Santa with Christmas so that is why I made this for my Grand-daughter who is 3 years old. It is inspired by a card on Pinterest.





As a dutch girl growing up we didn't celebrate christmas with presents and a santa, but we celebrated Sinterklaas in december. So I am not really santa crazy and prefer cards with snowman or rabbits. ;)





I think these Santas are so cute and we hardly get any snow nowadays so I think they are more apt for Christmas.




It's snowmen for me. There are such a fabulous array of stamps to choose from and I have to say I find some Santas a little bit creepy!!



I love Santa and Snowmen, but when I want that impact of colour it is always
a Santa for me, works really well for a simple CAS card




I am in love with these cute santa´s. They are so cheerful and cheeky. So it is Santa for me this time.


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