This fortnight's challenge theme is to showcase a project using 
Your Favourite boy or girl themed (& 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 definitely prefer the feminine pink and fussy cards with lots of flowers, and this one includes my other addiction (cake)!  I've created an apron shaped card to match my baking theme by cutting out the corners of the card top with oval shapes and adding some ribbon between my patterned papers and cardbase.






Using Beach Bunnies by Last Minute Manda
Itʻs girls for me.  I love the colours and frills that you can use making girly cards.



Well, I like boys things, but I like girly things too,so I 
made a beach scene using them both..





I like making both girls and boys projects. For this challenge I have a made a girly card, but it could be for a boy if the colours were changed and the flowers were omitted. 






Most of the things I make are for girls/woman. I just love using pink (although you can use that for boys too) and I love using feminine things like bows and flowers. 






I prefer to make for girls.  They are much easier and open to adding more embellishments such as glitter or flowers.



Girls for me, every time, I have so much girly stash that it is never difficult to make a card. This is one of a set, requested by a friend, made using magazine freebies and some black card from my stash!!




I used to be in a panic for boys makes, but not any more, I practically look forward to the
male birthdays in the family now.  I love that you can keep a male card clean and simple (men don't seem to be bothered with floof) and you can get away with a cheeky sentiment!






My favourite is girls. I like to add embelishments like flowers and/or bling to a card.




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.

The winner of this challenge will receive a digi prize from:






This fortnight's challenge theme is to showcase a project using 
Your Favourite Spring or Summer (& 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 the summery feel to this card with the bright citrus colours and pretty florals. I love those few months of longer and warmer days before autumn.






 Spring is my favorite.  I love the beautiful weather, the special events that happen locally in the spring and the return of the plumeria flowers.




I'm a spring girl far more than Summer..
made some Spring like coaster






I like both spring and summer when the weather gets warmer and the bees and butterflies return. Colours seem so much more vivid and beautiful. 






I have picked spring cards, because I really love this season. The flowers are starting to blossom again, young animals are born everywhere and the weather is getting warmer.






I prefer Spring. I love seeing the garden coming to life after being so bare in the winter and the birds building their nests.



Spring for me when the bunnies start appearing and the garden bursts into life.



I hate summer!  It's too hot and sweaty, I get burned outside, it's too hot to sleep, nobody opens enough windows, and it's full of bugs.  There, I've said it.  I. Hate. Summer.
So I made a Spring card, because everything is still fresh, new, and delicate, and there are no wasps.




Summer for me. I like the sun and outdoor activities. Dinner in the garden and sit outside with a glass of wine until late in the evening. Very enjoyable.




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.

This fortnight's challenge theme is to showcase a project using 
Your Favourite Flower (& 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 do like a lot of flowers, roses, tulips and magnolia would probably be my top picks of garden flowers.  However, I especially love orange flowers of pretty much any variety, so I've sneaked in an orange flower into my image, and roses into my embellishments for a double whammy!





I love garden flowers of any type, but I think my favourite is probably heirloom roses.  They have a simple beauty, come in many colours. and often have a beautiful scent.


  

My favourite flower has to be Daisies, I love the daisies...






I do like the humble Daisy or Aster. There are so many colours and varieties.







I love the look of poppies and cosmos. Last week I made a card with a poppy, so this week I decided to make 2 little cards with cosmos. I love the look of these flowers and it was real fun to draw them my self. 





I love most colourful flowers in the garden, but fuchsias are an old favourite especially in hanging baskets when you can see all their beautiful colours.




Although roses don't do well in our windswept garden, they have to be among my favourite flowers. As a girl I remember Mum and Dad had a glorious rose in the garden called Blue Moon that had the most amazing scent. I hope one day to find one.



The only flowers that I'm not too fond of are orchids and those weird ones that I believe translates from the German as "willy on a plate"!  Otherwise, anything that grows in the garden is good with me.



I have many favourite flowers. Lilac is in the top 3. I love their colours and the scent is wonderful. We used to have a lilac tree in the garden with beautiful dark purple flowers.
At every blooming lilac tree I have to stop and smell the flowers 😀



So now it's over to you.
We hope you will join in our challenge and show us your style.
