Favourite person to Craft for at Christmas (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 Person to Make for at Christmas (& why).
You MUST explain WHY it is your favourite.

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

Although I enjoy crafting as a hobby, it's far more motivating when I know the recipient of my project will appreciate the hours of creative work you've poured into your project.  I particularly like making for my Bestest Crafting Buddy who also happens to be my Partner in Crime when it comes to buying more stash (although to be fair, no encouragement is usually required!)

I've made a tag to decorate an Advent calendar that I've made with a few crafty bits inside. I can't disclose what's inside because she won't start opening the doors until tomorrow and I don't want any spoilers, but I hope she enjoys opening the doors as each day arrives. I can at least share the tag which she should have already seen by now, in preparation for tomorrow's 'Grand Opening Ceremony'!

My favorite "person" to make for is our puppy, Koa!  He is a new member of our family, and I loved crocheting this Christmas fuzzy lei for him.  I canʻt say he particularly excited about it, but I love that he looks so cute and festive.  He will look great in our family pic.

My favourite person to make for, [and a bit difficult as we have two more]...
would be Hadley, my great grandson..


and out..

 I love making cards for my Grandson. It is fun to choose an image and colour  it and see the smile when he opens it. 

I love making christmas tags for my family. I use them on presents and they love them. This one is for my very sweet mother, just because she is the best!

This year it is my Grandson.  It's the first Christmas where he is more aware of what is going on and he's already been to see Santa!

My card is for my Granddaughter Mollie Rose and I have personalised this tall one for her.

One of my favourite people to make for is my darlin' mum, she always
appreciates the time and effort that goes into creating something just for her.

My favorite person to make a Christmas card for is my friend.I know she doesn't like the traditional or cute Christmas cards. So I made this for her in somewhat modern colour scheme.

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.
