This fortnight's challenge theme is to showcase a project using 
your Favourite for Male or Female (& 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've not used overly girlie colours, it's definitely a feminine style. I'm far more comfortable with cute and pretty styles, especially if there can be a splash of glitter. I find the masculine styles so tough, no flowers, no pink, nothing too cute. It's just not 'me'!

I love making cards for females they are always fun and easy to make with
I always have more ideas than time to make them, But I have to choose Male
cards as they take lots of planning time and are most definitely a challenge
But I love my husbands face everytime he opens one of my handmade cards
he studies them for ages and is always so complimentary


I love making cards, any kind of cards! I think I like female cards or tags best because I love ribbons and buttons and sparkle and bling!


Like Elaine I find male cards challenging but get a lot of satisfaction out of making them. have to put a bit more thought into them!


using Henry Day Dreaming

 Male cards are always a challenge, but give me great satisfaction when I have made one I like.


It has to be female cards for me because I love using pretty floral papers and adding all those gorgeous girly details like flowers, lace and pearls...and preferably a hefty dash of pink! 


I really like making "girlie" cards - they come a lot easier to me that the masculine cards do. Adding bling, and sparkle and all the pretty colors are what draws me to female cards....FUN!!


I love making female cards, I find them much easier than male ones. It's because there are many pretty embellishments you can add to a girly card such as flowers, pearls and gems.


Definitely female for me, I love decoration and glitter and colours and if you are creating for ladies that's just more easy as it is for men.

Sarah question!! I love cute and although not usually heavily embellished, I always look at the cards I design for girls with pride and think, yep...I made that!!  Male cards are sooo difficult, nearly as bad as choosing a gift for a chap!!


Male for me, because that's always a challenge for me.

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

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