The sponsor of this challenge is
This fortnight's challenge theme is to showcase a project using 
Your Favourite Celebrations (Xmas, Wedding etc) (& 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 Christmas in general (spending time warm and snug at home with friends, family and lots of lovely food) and it's also a great theme to craft for with cards, decorations and gifts.  I've used one of my favourite Christmas images on my card which also combines food and friends!

Christmas is probably my favorite occasion, though birthdays are a very close second.  I love that it's a time for family and friends to gather and make special memories that live on for generations.


I love making cards for all occasions. If I have to choose then Christmas comes out ahead. I love all the shine and sparkle.

I love making christmas cards, because it is my favourite holiday. I love celebrating together with friends and family, having a good meal together. I love having a christmas tree with los of lights and candles everywhere. 

I do like to make birthday cards that are personal to friends and family, but my favourites to make are Christmas cards. I just love adding all the glitter and stickles and seeing them all shiny and sparkly.

My favourite celebration has to be Birthday...boring I know but it is the perfect chance to make a one of a kind card for someone special. This one for instance was for a friend that doesn't do fluffy or cutesy!!

Oh gosh, I love all the celebrations!  It was a toss up on this one between Birthday and Christmas, because I do enjoy making both (until it gets to November and I am still desperately sticking snowflakes on like a thing possessed), so as I have made a start on the C cards already, that's what I am sharing with you for this challenge

My favorite celebration is Christmas. I love winter and the Christmas days. And I love to decorate the house and make it cosy.  And making Christmas cards :)

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.
Hugs from the AYLI girls.
