Favourite Non-Birthday Occasion (& 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 Non-Birthday Occasion (& why).
You MUST explain WHY it is your favourite.

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

Using Penguin Couple by Lee Holland
Christmas is my favourite crafting occasion for loads of reason but in this case because I love pingus and also like using glitter on my creations. 

I the older I get, the more I realized everyday should be celebrated.  For that reason I made a Just Because card.  I love sending cards to friends that do not expect them.

My favorite non Birthday would Anniversary cards, any year I love them..
especially golden..

What better than  a welcoming a new baby to the family. I love making new baby cards, using soft pastels and cute images. 

I love to make cards for a friends to let them know you are thinking about them. I love to use a simple hello or hugs card for that. 

I'm trying not to make so many this year, but my favourite is Christmas.  I love heat embossing, glitter and all the embellishments that can go with it.

For my Non-Birthday project I have made a mini album. It is a great way to use up the not so great papers from a paper collection and goodness knows I have a lot of those!!

I'm another one who likes to make get well cards to cheer people up
when they are poorly - I made this one for a friend with Shingles, she said it
hurt when she laughed at it.  Oops.

My favorite non birthday card is a get well card. I like to let friends or family know that I think about them and wish them a speedy recovery.

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.
