Favourite non-traditional Easter Character (& 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 non-traditional Easter character (no bunnies or chicks!) (& 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 love visiting the donkeys at our local donkey sanctuary in Sidmouth and would love to foster a rescue donkey (or three) if I had the land.  So why not have them featured on an Easter card!

My favourite non traditional Easter character is definitely the cute penguins from The Catʻs Pajamas.  I love that they are all ready for Easter and they just make me smile.

I think my fave non traditional character has to be this dog..I've used him before and he is perfect for carrying the egg on his nose..

What better than a teddy dressed as a lamb. So cute and are a firm favourite for my Easter cards

With bunny ears on, every animal can be used on an easter card, so that is why I had to use this adorable penguin. 

I've chosen one of these cute dragons from Lee Holland.  I think they are fun and suitable for a girl or a boy.

I have never thought of a non-traditonal Easter character so decided upon a dragon of course!! Who doesn't love an dragon on an Easter card!!?

I've kinda gone a bit off piste, but what else would you expect, as I have fallen in love with these Dustin Pike gargoyles and am using them for as many occasions as possible!

Since I discovered the cute dragons at Lee Holland I fell in love with them.
So for this challenge I choose the cute dragon coming out of his egg with giant rabbit ears. 

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.
