Favourite: True Love or Fabulous Friendships (and why)

Welcome to As You Like It Challenge

Our fortnightly challenge is a home for you to create something 
which gives you a warm "inner glow" of pride, without lots of entry rules.

Usually we provide options for you to choose from. 
You just need to select and use your favourite option in order to join in. 

For a chance to win our prize or top-3 spot, 
you need to tell us why you've made your choice.
That way our team and readers can appreciate why it's your favourite.

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

So get crafting and remember to have fun 
and enjoy your crafting time.

This fortnight's challenge theme is to showcase a project using 
Your Favourite True Love or Fabulous Friendships (& 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've actually combined the themes by making a 'love you' card for a friend, rather than a Valentines card.  For obvious reasons I only generally make one Valentines card a year, but I love to send 'just because' cards to friends, and that's what this little guy is for.

I love giving special cards and handmade goodies to my friends because I hope it makes them feel as special as they are.  

True love for sure, mind you, I LOVE my fabulous friends, but there is something very special with true love..

Both occasions are close to my heart. I love to make cards for my lovely friends, but I do like to make Hubby nice cards for Valentines, birthday and Chrstmas

I love making cards for special friends and this one was extra special, because I received the stamp I used from a special friend. It is always nice to make a card for someone that is important to you and the sentiment that is inside my card is a perfect saying for a card for a special friend: The best place in the world is inside a hug.  

I do love making cards for more special occasions such as Anniversaries, Weddings etc. Friends receive a nice one too, but it's more often than not from my card box.

I have gone for Fabulous Friendships. I often send a little card to friends that I haven't seen for a while, it's a lovely way to keep in touch and such a surprise when something nice drops on the door mat!!  This one is for a friend who lost her black lab last year.

Hubby is not really the super-sentimental type, although he will get a slushy Valentine card.  As my outlet for True Love is limited, I've gone for Fabulous Friends, because I have some, no, really, I do, one or two.  And one of them is super special, we're so alike we're almost twins.

I made this card for my husband. We were married 40 years in December.

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.
