This fortnight's challenge theme is to showcase a project using 
Your Favourite Favourite reason to make/send a card (other than a birthday! (& why).
You MUST explain WHY it is your favourite.

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

It's Christmas for me, because I love all the excitement beforehand with all the decorations, plus it's a great excuse to use sparkle on your cards!

Well this is an easy choice for me I LOVE making christmas cards
so I pick Christmas.... I so love this Stamp and set I think I am going to be making multiple cards with this set.
I love making cards to say hello and remind my friends I think of them often.  I know I love getting unexpected "happy mail".


I don't mind what occassion I make cards for. Birthdays are obviously the most popular but I do love making anniversary and wedding cards. I like adding hearts, gems and pretty embellishments. 

My favourite are definitely Christmas cards as I love putting glitter and bling on them when I can and I tend to make them all the year round when I don't have much else on.

I like to make "Just Because" cards to send to friends that I haven't seen in a while or, for that matter, those I have never met!! Let's face it something unexpected is always a lovely surprise!!

My favourite reason for making cards, other than birthdays, is to celebrate
friendships - I have made so many friends all over the world (some I have never met but who are still dear to my heart) and I love to let them know I am thinking of them and how important they are in my life

Apart from making Birthday- and Christmas cards, I also like to make little 'thinking of you' cards. It's important to let friends, family or colleagues who are facing difficult times know that some one is thinking about them. 

So now it's over to you.
We hope you will join in our challenge, show us your style and
showcase Your Favourite Favourite reason to make/send a card (other than a birthday (& why).
You MUST explain WHY it is your favourite.

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