Favourite: Critter or People (& 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 Critter or People (image-wise, no comment on the real thing!!!) (& 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've opted for critters as I much prefer colouring fur than hair, and I adore the cuteness of the images.  I've used an adorable Pingu which is one of my favourite winter themed critters too.

I love both (and managed to include a cute little critter) but for purposes of this challenge I'll go with people as my favourite. I find critter fur very difficult to colour. I still struggle with hair, but if you pick the right image, that won't be an issue.

Critters or people, has to be critters and my cat comes to mind sitting on the fence looking up at the bats..can you see her? 


I think for me it is Critters. I much prefer colouring animals. People can be rathers tricky to get the tones correct and look natural. Cuddly animals can look good in all sorts of colours.

On my cards I love critters!! They are cute and fun to colour. I don't like colouring hair, so I don't often use people images on my cards.

I don't mind colouring people sometimes, but critters are definitely easier and there's such a variety of cute ones too.

No brainer...critters for me!! I love all things cute and furry, and they are so much easier to colour than hair on a person!!

I love critters on my makes, but there are times when I really like people too, especially if  I can find an image that is just right for the recipient, like this one, which was made as a thank you for the nurses who have been looking after my dad so well.

For me it's critters. I love colouring them. I don't use images of people very much.


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.
