This fortnight's challenge theme is Anything Goes for Xmas.
(no fave this week, totally freestyle it!)

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

I've used a cute donkey digi from Amanda Jayne Designs and 

 I had great fun coloring up this cute image from our wonderful sponsor.

Anything goes and I went simple!!!

A little experiment with stencils and I quite like the effect. 

I have made 2 advents calendars for my little nephews together with my mother. They have received them and really loved them. It was a lot of work, but so much fun to make.

thought I'd make a card with a robin on.  
I do like to see them on Christmas cards and in the garden.

Each year I make something for each of my colleagues. This year I have cross stitched snowflakes and poinsettias to go in a three inch hoop. Most were red and green but I always make something pink for Eve as it's her favourite colour!

The one thing about the lead up to Christmas is lots of new crafty stuff available, and who doesn't love new stuff huh?

This one is very simple but I love the outcome. For the first time I used clear shimmer spray and I love it. It gives a lovely shine. (it's hard to see on this picture)

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.

    1. Hi, I did reply to you on 17th regarding your prize and copied in our sponsor but there may be a delay in our sponsor sending your voucher as it's Christmas and the store is likely closed for the holidays as it's a physcial goods store, not digital, but if you've still not heard by the time they re-open, please get back in touch and I'll chase it up for you. Have a great Christmas in the meantime. Happy Crafting.

  6. Thank you for the challenge. Lovely work by the design team.
    Happy Christmas
