The prize from Care2Stamp will be these
2 stamps from the Wild Rose Studio range:


This fortnight's challenge theme is to showcase a project using 
your Favourite Christmas Image (& 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 penguins and this image has been a firm favourite for a long time.  He's just adorable and I love that he's quite a small stamp, and very quick to colour.  I've cut him out with a huge stitched circle die to give him lots of focus.  
He's called 'Snow Cute' - and he is exactly that!!!

My favourite stamp this year is a Robin stamp from Woodware.
There are so many opportunities with it.
Here is what I have done with this cute and versatile stamp, with 
a little of my doodling.


My favourite this year has to be this Snowman, he's handsome, quick to colour, if like me running out of time! And he looks like he's sending best wishes for me lol.


My most favourite Christmas stamps are owls and this one is really one of the best. I make this kind of card every year; so quick to colour and what a great effect on CAS cards!


It's Holly for me. I've used her for the last three Christmases. She is so pretty, easy to colour and little girls love her (and big ones for that matter!!)


**coming soon**

My all time favourite Christmas image is any snowman. I have a lot of snowmen stamps and I adore every one of them. Some are cute and some are fun and they are easy to colour. 

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

This is our final challenge of 2014 and we'd like to thank you all for playing along with us this year.  We'll see you on 1 January with our first challenge of 2015.

Good luck, and happy crafting.

Merry Christmas from the AYLI girls.
