The sponsor of this challenge is

Polkadoodles Ltd

This fortnight's challenge theme is to showcase a project using 
Your Favourite His or Hers (& why).
You MUST explain WHY it is your favourite.

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

It would always have to be 'hers' for me if I had to choose, I love everything pretty and find girlie cards so much easier to make. But, I thought I'd challenge myself to do a 'his' card for this challenge using the Polkadoodles Horace and Boo printable digi kits

I find masculine cards a real challenge. I love cute images and usually gravitate to the girlie pastel colours, flowers, pearls, pretty papers and satin ribbons which probably doesn't help either!  Therefore I've opted for a very girlie card with lots of frilly embellishments.

I definitely love making girly cards!  I love pink, ribbons, sequins, pearls...all those lovely girly touches.


I have chosen a female card. Like most crafters I do find girly cards easier to make. There are so many beautiful images, papers and dies to choose from.

I love making cards for girls - there's soooo much more you can heap on them - pearls, flowers, ribbon, sequins :-) Yikes, all manner of lovely stuff can go on a girl card. Boy cards are, for me, a trauma. I stay well clear of them if I can!!!


I love making card for girls. I like pink, cute and everything sweet, so most of the times I think it is easier for me to make a feminine card. This card is for a special lady: my mother.

I like making both, but as I don't tend to add too much 'fuss', my style is probably more suited to male cards.

My favourite is definitely girly.  It's a lot easier to add lovely embellishments and although there aren't many on this card, I have lots to get through!

It's "Hers" for me...I have so much girly stash to use!!


95% of my makes are for the girls, and although I find the boys a bit of a challenge
I really do enjoy making them, the cards seem to be like the boys, a lot simpler!

Of course I like to make female cards, but that's not a challenge for me anymore. So for this challenge I made a male card. Male cards are always a challenge for me.
Clean and simple and they don't need a lot of embellishments. 

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.
