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


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


No question. Definitely CUTE!  I don't really do 'elegant'!!  
I love anything that makes you say 'aww'.

And nothing says that better than something cute and fluffy!




Samantha
Its a difficult choice for sure but I think I have to say my favourite is Cute that's really because
I love bringing the cute images to life. 



Carol

I love cute but it's a lovely change to do something with all my dies so I have opted for Elegant, love doing these too cause they are just as pretty and not everyone likes cute on a card they receive.






Mojca

Oh, it's a tough desision right ... at least for me ... I love to do them both, but I think the cute style is just a little dominent at the moment ;P and this cute Tilda bee is just right for this challenge don't you think ;)





Sarah

A "no brainer"...cute for me!! Why? because there are cute images everywhere in rubber and digi and they are soooo hard to resist!!





Suzette
Elegant - I love this bride, so modern and happy




Wilma
I love to do both, but for this challenge I go for Elegant.
 This card I made a while ago and I like it very much. 
The paper is gorgeous and I love the rhinestone swirl and the flower arrangement. 

  



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

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

So, onto our 38th challenge








The sponsor of this challenge is 

Joanna Sheen 
Who is offering a £10 voucher to her fabulous store






This fortnight's challenge theme is to showcase a project using 
your Favourite Fibre (eg ribbon, lace, twine) & 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 love twine and lace too, my favourite is definitely ribbon.  
I usually reach for a satin ribbon, but opted for a soft lilac gingham for my baking themed apron card.









Samantha
It's hard to choose a favourite but when I don't know what to add I make
a grab for the twine so I guess that is my favourite because it works
with anything.




Carol

It's Velvet ribbon for me, love the texture and luxury look it has.






Mojca
Definitely ribbon especially the silk one. I love how beautifully it shines.






Sarah

It's ribbon for me.  There's nothing nicer than a beautiful bow to finish off a card. I should practice what I preach really as I have drawers full of the stuff!!






Suzette

Lace, lace, give me lace any time! 
I love these roll laces as you can use them as borders etc.




Wilma
I almost use twine on every card I make. 
For me it's a finishing touch. So that's why twine is my favourite.






So now it's over to you.

We hope you will join in our challenge, show us your style and 
showcase your Favourite Fibre (eg ribbon, lace, twine) & why.
You MUST explain WHY it is your favourite.

Good luck, and happy crafting.
