Favourite Christmas Critter (and 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 Christmas Critter (& why).
You MUST explain WHY it is your favourite.

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

It's definitely pingus for me! 
What's not to love about these cute tuxedo-wearing waddlers!

In a recent challenge, I let everyone know how much I love teddy bears, so I chose a Christmas bear.  They are so cute and cuddly.


My favourite critter by a country mile is Barry..
He is a little charmer..

I love these Christmas puppies. They are ideal for my Daughter and Son in law's Christmas card as they have 2 springer spaniels. The only difference is Lupin and Rosie are not that quiet for long!

It won't be a surprise that I have chosen for a 2 little mice. A mouse has always been my favourite animal. I think they are really adorable and I love their funny big ears. 

It has to be a reindeer for me and especially one with a red nose! It wouldn't be Christmas without a Rudolph.

Without question my favourite christmas critter is the lovely James!! Christmas just wouldn't be the same if I didn;t ink one of my LOTV grey rubber James stamps.

I do love a teddy for Christmas, something cuddly, cheery, and comfy to hug

My favorite Christmas critter is a (Penny Black) cat. I have several really cute Christmas cats from Penny Black. This is one of my favorite. They are so cheery.

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.
