Favourite Interactive - or not! (and why)

Welcome to As You Like It Challenge

Our fortnightly challenge is a home for you to create something

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 !

This fortnight's challenge theme is to showcase a project using 
Your Favourite: Interactive (ie a moving part) or not (& 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 been racking my brain to consider what kind of interactive card I would prefer. I thought about the fancy-fold cardbases that I've loved making in the past, including some with removable tags, but in the end I decided that my difficulty in finding something that I'd love to make must really mean that I actually prefer straightforward cards!  So I've opted for the 'not' version by making the complete opposite of interactive instead: ie a flat and fuss-free card!  

I really like the challenge of getting an interactive card to work and they are so much fun when they do.  This one is a hidden slider card.  

My new found fave thing is wobble action..I think they are so fun and easy to do..

I made this interactive card for my son's birthday. To make it more fun I added keys, wallet, ticket and of course a phone to the shorts. Very simple with little personal details.

I do love making an interactive card, but don't make them very often, so although they are fun to make, my most favourite cards are the not interactive cards. They are easier to make and also easier to mail. 

I think I've only made one interactive card in the past so that must make me in the "not" category.

 It's not that I don't like interactive cards and have, indeed, made a few over the years but ever mindful of the cost of postage these days I went with the "not" option. Nice and flat for posting, although in this case it was hand delivered!!

I have tried, oh I have tried, many times, but have decided that interactive and I are not a match made in heaven, so here we are with a not-interactive card!

I prefer to make 'normal' cards than interactive ones. I sometimes make an interactive card for someone special who I know will appreciate it.

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.
