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

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

Although I find white challenging to colour, I much prefer the cuteness of a snowman than a jolly Father Christmas (sorry Saint Nick!), so today I'm sharing my Christmas Countdown calendar featuring one of the Advent Characters from Lili of the Valley from our lovely sponsors Lili of the Valley.

Iʻm a fan of both Santa and Snowmen.  I went with a Snowman because I have been gifted with several new Snowmen stamps.  I love that they are always so happy and such wonderful messengers of holiday joy.

I love a good snowman as much as I love Santa,
 so, I let the dice roll and Santa won this year,,and
one of my favourite vintage style one.

I love snowmen and Santa equally, so this time I have made a card with a Santa.
All children associate Santa with Christmas so that is why I made this for my Grand-daughter who is 3 years old. It is inspired by a card on Pinterest.

As a dutch girl growing up we didn't celebrate christmas with presents and a santa, but we celebrated Sinterklaas in december. So I am not really santa crazy and prefer cards with snowman or rabbits. ;)

I think these Santas are so cute and we hardly get any snow nowadays so I think they are more apt for Christmas.

It's snowmen for me. There are such a fabulous array of stamps to choose from and I have to say I find some Santas a little bit creepy!!

I love Santa and Snowmen, but when I want that impact of colour it is always
a Santa for me, works really well for a simple CAS card

I am in love with these cute santa´s. They are so cheerful and cheeky. So it is Santa for me this time.

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.
