This fortnight's challenge theme is to showcase a project using 
Your Favourite Christmas Animal (& 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 using animals on my Christmas cards and there are some adorable ones available. Polar Bears and Penguins have to be my faves so this Polkadoodles image from Winnie Winterland is a winner as it features both!

I absolutely adore pingus (I definitely didn't get all soppy watching the BBC documentary a few weeks ago!!!) but I also love all things cute and furry, so I've also added a sweet reindeer too.
Using Rudolph and 2 Cute Christmas Penguins from Polkadoodles

I pick the TCP Bunny as my favorite Christmas animal.  He is actually one of my favorite animal images period!  He's cute and is always getting into some kind of trouble.

I love penguins at Christmas. The are so cute and make a fun card for young and old.

It has to be the Christmas penguin! Who doesn't love a Whimsy penguin?


My favourite animal is a mouse and I love creating Christmas cards with a cute mouse on it. I just love their cute faces and sweet big ears.


I love cute animal images and couldn't decide which to choose as my 'favourite'... and then I remembered James - definitely my favourite Christmas bear!

I love cute reindeer at Christmas, after all they're the ones that help Santa bring all the presents aren't they?

using Snowdrift Friends
I love all animals but for the purpose of this theme and because the sponsor image was too cute to resist I have gone for a Christmas dog, cat and the traditional little robin!!

I've had a love affair with this bear since he first appeared, several years ago now, and every Christmas he has made an appearance in at least one of his many adventures.  It wouldn't be Christmas without him now.

I love cats and I love the cat images from the Penny Black stamps.
They are funny and cute. This stamp is my favourite for Christmas.

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.
