Using Snowman Friends
I love pink at any occasion, but I think it's especially lovely at Christmas. I love the softness of this non-traditional colour with the white snow.



I love nontraditional Christmas colors and one of my favorite color combinations is soft blue, pink and green.  I love they way the mimic nature and just work so well with cute, girly images like Winnie.




Elaine

Using Winnie Winterland - Fairy Christmas
I make my Christmas cards in a variety of styles. One of my favourites is blue and white with a touch of silver. I love the fresh icy feel of winter.




Most of my christmas cards are made in the traditional christmas colours. I really love the combination of red and green. Red is one of my favourite colours and I love how it makes an image pop.





Lynne

using Winnie Winterland - Frosty the Snowman

I like blue and white and also this lilac and aqua combination. I think it's such a pretty combo and can be used for any occasion, but it also looks wintery for Christmas cards.



I usually stick to traditional colours for my own Christmas makes. There is just something about the holly leaf green and berry  red that makes me happy.



For me, it has to be the traditional red, green, and cream, I just love
the warmth and richness of them together, and it makes me feel cosy





Using Snowman & friends
I love the traditional Christmas colours red/green/white/cream. They give me a happy and nostalgic feeling. 



So now it's over to you.
We hope you will join in our challenge, show us your style and
showcase Your Favourite: Xmas Colour Combo (& why).
You MUST explain WHY it is your favourite.

Good luck, and happy crafting.
Hugs from the AYLI girls.

Your Favourite: Xmas or Non-Xmas (& 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 making Christmas cards as I love embellishing my projects with glitter and snow.  I also love non-traditional Christmas colours for my festive cards, like pink and purples. 





I love making things and I love Christmas but as most of the teamies 
have made christmas cards I thought I would take the opportunity to have some crochet fun, I made a crochet Guardians of the Galaxy character GROOT
I love making Christmas cards, I love Christmas.  I think I am mesmerized by all the beautiful sparkle you can use on Christmas cards.  I always go a bit overboard in purchasing new stamps, their is always such an abundance of wonderful new release sets around the holidays.

Definately Christmas. I love all the products and adding some sparkle. 

At the moment I really love making christmas cards. I love using all those cute christmas images and working with lots of shimmer. I really like making christmascards in traditional colours, but for today I decided to do something else. 



I love making Christmas cards. I can make them all through the year when I don't have many other occasions and I love to add the glitter too.




I am so behind with my Christmas cards this year that I just had to choose Christmas. It is also an excellent excuse to ink up some of the stamp sets that have been collecting dust since last Christmas!!



Because I've been surrounded by Christmas since June, I do love making non-Christmas
cards as a refreshing change, just to step away from the penguins and Santas, and to
recharge the batteries





Wilma
Definitely Christmas. I love the season and all the Christmas decorations.



So now it's over to you.
We hope you will join in our challenge, show us your style and
showcase Your Favourite: Xmas or Non-Xmas (& why).
You MUST explain WHY it is your favourite.

Good luck, and happy crafting.

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


I seem to veer towards critters in most of my cards and I'm a huge fan of anything cute and furry both in crafting and life in general!  I especially love kitties who are usually quite cuddly (there's nothing better than a lap full of purring kitty), but it's the bunnies at LOTV who are some of my favourite crafting critters.  I think this image featuring them sitting on their wintry log is adorable.








Samantha
Its a difficult choice and even real life I sometimes prefer animals too!
haha! SO I choose Animals and this time I have crochet a magical unicorn.

I love my animals, they are so fun to color!  Hair for humans is my nemesis, but I'm working on it! 




Elaine


I much prefer colouring animals for my cards. People are a bit of a challenge for me, so I only use them when I have to.


 I am definitly an animal person. I am not really happy with how I colour hair and that is why I most of the times don't colour people. And I really love cute animal, I love how many artist draw really cute scenes/images with animals and I really love colouring them.




Lynne 


I much prefer colouring cute animals rather than people. They always seem more versatile   and, for me, easier to colour.



It's people for me, I love playing around with my alcohol markers trying out different skin tones. 



Although I have made a lot of people cards recently, I do love the animals more,
they tend to suit more occasions and are more versatile for male or female recipients.





My favorite is animals, because they are more versatile (for me) than people.




So now it's over to you.
We hope you will join in our challenge, show us your style and
showcase Your Favourite: People or Animals (& why).
You MUST explain WHY it is your favourite.

Good luck, and happy crafting.
