Our fortnightly challenge is a home for you to create something

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

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

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

My favourite wild animals are big cats, and in particular tigers. I've always loved them, in all shapes and sizes, from the beautiful Siberian Tiger to the lovable Tigger from Winnie The Pooh!  For today's card I've combined this cutie from MFT with his sweater wearing safari buddies.

It's lions for me.  I love the way a momma lion protects her cubs and there is a special place in my heart for the Cowardly Lion from The Wizard of Oz.

So many favourite animals to choose from but I think mine has to be a Bear, I love all sorts of Bears especially out in the wild catching their supper..

One of my favourite wild animals is deer. We are fortunate to see them almost every day in the woods and near the roads beside us. They are especially good for Christmas cards and male cards. 

I don't think I have a favourite wild animal, I love lots of them, so this was really hard to pick just one animal. On my card for my memory dex I have used a cute hippo image. I I the shape of their cute face and this one with the large flower is really cute.

I like lots of wild animals, but one of my favourites are elephants. They are such gentle giants and it's very sad when you see them being killed for their ivory.

There is something really appealing about the face of a giraffe. I think it's their eyes that have such an endearing quality that makes them so beautiful.

You needed to ask?

I don't have a favourite wild animal, because I like most wild animals. 
OK, no crocodiles, snakes and spiders. 
I do like to see the beautiful wildlife series from David Attenborough.
During our Australia trip I saw a lot of 'wild' animals. In Steve Irwin's Zoo I had the chance to cuddle a koala. They are very cute and their fur is so soft. 

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.
