Favourite reason to send a card (& 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 a few 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 Reason / Occasion to send a card (& 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 think my favourite occasion to send a card for is special/big birthdays. It's lovely to be able to personalise them with a name or number. This was for my Mum who recently had her 80th 

Christmas is my favourite excuse to make a card. I love all the options for embelishments (a good excuse for some snow speckles or even a spot of glitter. I also love Christmas as a time of year, usually a proper week off work and some time to relax!

My favorite reason for sending a card, especially over that last year has been, just because.  Maybe just because I miss you, I'm thinking about you or I hope to make you smile.  I want my friends and far away family to know I'm thinking of them.  I'm using the Polkadoodles image Too Cute Gil Rabbit Growing Sunflowers.

I don't always need an excuse to send a card. During this past year I have not been able to see my Grandson very often. So I have made several fun cards just to remind him we are thinking of him. 

The occasions that I make the most cards for are christmas and birthdays. For this challenge I have chosen for a birthday card. You can have enough of those and you need them during the whole year.

I don't actually 'send' many cards but I guess my favourite reason would have to be for a birthday, to let someone know you are thinking of them on their special day. 

I don't get the chance to send many, but I do love making baby cards.  It's such a joyous occasion for the parents and a handmade card is that little bit special.

I would normally say Birthday cards are my favourite reason to get crafty but during these stay at home days I have made more and more cards just to say hello and hope you are well.

The cards I make the most of, like everyone else, are birthday, but my favourite reason to send a card is friendship, it is lovely to receive a card out of the blue from someone you care about.

Apart from Christmas cards as favourite my next favourite is Birthday cards. Through the year I need a lot of birthday cards. I love to send them. I think it means so much more than a text message or an email.


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.
