This fortnight's challenge theme is to showcase a project using 
Your Favourite Cats or Dogs (& why).
You MUST explain WHY it is your favourite.

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

Firstly, from Jules, or fabulous Guest Designer for July.
We've loved having you play along with us this month and your cards have been amazing.
You've ended on a high with this cutie too.

I have no preference for “real” dogs or cats .. .. .. but I do love the cats in my Penny Black stamp collection


Using Horace & Boo
I've always been a dog girl, my Manny is my best friend in the World.
This Horace and Boo collection from Polkadoodles covers both though because there's a cat and a dog! I love the digi kit, all the little pre coloured elements are great for a quick card

Dogs have masters, cats have slaves.
It's safe to say that I've always been a slave!  
I've had kitties since I was a toddler and my home 
doesn't feel complete without a furry feline companion.

I'm a dog person.  I love the way you can always see how much they love you in their eyes and how they make you laugh with all their funny antics.
I have to opt for dogs. Although I don't have a dog I do like to snuggle up with my daughters pooch. Also I have more dog images than cats.

 I have never owned a dog or cat. My cousins had a dog that I saw very often and I really liked him. He and I were big buddies. We always went for long walks, so I guess I have a little preference for dogs.

I've never had pets and have no preference over cats or dogs so in terms of making a card, I tend to choose a cute image that I like at the time, and I do think that Scruff the dog is quite cute.

I have never owned a cat and, as we have two dogs, I have to say I prefer them.  They are so affectionate and always want to be with you.

There is nothing quite like a dog to greet you at the door, they are always pleased to see you and love you more than anything on earth.

I've had cats in my life since I was born, literally - Sam, the farm tabby, used to sleep under my pram in the garden and wouldn't let anyone near, he was a fierce guard cat!  I can't imagine being without one now, with their cuteness (when they want), their calming purrs, their antics, scheming, mischief, all in all life would be dull without a furry feline buddy.

I love to play and cuddle with them. They are so cute and make me smile.

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.
