please remember tell us why you've made your choice

eg, if the theme is 'favourite animal' and you decide on 'bunny', tell us why.
eg, you love Thumper, the rabbit from Bambi !

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

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

Ooh, I think it's cruel to make us choose! I love them both and the Penny Black snowman that Wilma has used is one of my all time favourite stamps ever. 
That said, if I had to pick just one I think it would be have to be penguins as they are just so adorable. I like to use black on my cards too so it goes perfectly with them. There are some really sweet images available and I love these mix and match cuties from Lili of the Valley

I have a real soft spot for penguins (from Pingu to Happy Feet to March of the Penguin).  
We had a fantastic penguin coastal zoo located about a mile from where we live.  My husband and I had an annual membership and I loved going there to visit the little waddlers when we walked down to the harbourside, but unfortunately the zoo was a casualty of this summer's lockdown and sadly they have closed permanently.

I love both snowmen and penguins, but I think snowmen edge ahead just a little because they have so much personality depending on how you dress them up.

Snowman or penguins ? A hard one for me, I love both. I do seem to use snowmen a little more, so this time I have chosen snowmen. Why? I don't know anyone who doesn't have fond memories of making snowmen, they always bring a smile.

**coming soon**

I LOVE snowmen! There are so many cute snowman stamps out there to choose from. I would love it to be a white Christmas, just to be able to get out there and build a snowman or two.  

I do love both, but Snowmen remind me more of being a child and building them in the garden.  We hardly seem to get enough snow these days, but I only really like to watch it from inside now.

I love snowmen, and ladies for that matter. It's the kid in me, I think, and the hope that just one Christmas will be a white one!!

Sorry penguins, it's snowmen for me - they just look so cheeky and happy (unless the sun is out)

I like snowmen. I love this snowman stamp from Penny Black, it makes me smile.
Snowmen bring back sweet memories. 

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.
