Favourite People or Critters (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 People or Animals (& 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 love the cuteness of something cuddly and furry (both in real life and when I'm watercolouring!!!) so I've picked this adorable badger for my Easter themed card.

It is definitely animals for me.  I struggle with coloring people hair but not so much with animal hair.  Besides, I just love all the cute animal images available to create with.

Has to be animals for me, I love them all especially Barry..


It has to be animals for me. They are so versatile for making  projects for the young and old alike. 

It's not very often that I use stamps with people on my cards. I really prefer using animal stamps. They look cute most of the times and I love colouring them.

I much prefer to colour animals as they don't have complicated hair and are a lot easier.

Colouring hair and skin are really not my forte so I tend to go for animal images to colour. A little boo boo in the fur is less noticeable I always think!!

You can trust me to be contrary - normally my makes are full of animals, but every now and again I go into people mode, there are so many great character stamps available that I am usually spoilt for choice.

I am not that keen on using 'people' on cards. So for me it is animals. I love the stampset of Stampendous with the yoga frogs. 

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.
