This fortnight's challenge theme is to showcase a project using 
your Favourite Season(& 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 like crafting for Christmas, my favourite season is summer. I love the longer days, the warmer weather and the brighter skies. I like to think that my honeybears are enjoying playing in the garden on a summer's afternoon.

Hmmmm Difficult for me! The fact I LOVE spring for all the plants and flowers in my garden start coming back to life and the trees start budding up and flowering! However!!! For making cards...

IT has to be Winter Why? Because when Winter comes Christmas is not far behind!
I LOVE Christmas with all the baking and Christmas card sending..
for my project this time I have made a Christmas card with a poinsettia stamp and some distress inks


My favorite season is Spring.  I love the promise of new beginnings that Spring brings.  I love all the color that springs forth after the essentially colorless months of Winter. 


I love them all but going with Autumn, so love the countryside as the trees begin to turn array of warm glowing colours and nothing like sitting in front of an open fire, dimmed lights and the wind howling outside. 


I love the Christmas season. I am not fond of the cold weather, but I do love the hustle and bustle of Christmas. The preparation of the food, baking the cake, making cards and making Christmas projects with my Grandson. All very satisfying.


My favourite season for card making is Winter because I love all the gorgeously festive images, beautiful snowflakes and I love adding sparkle to my Christmas creations!


Winter!! I used to love Spring and Summer more but for the past 10 years or so, Winter is my "down time." A time for me to not worry about yard work (except snow removal) and I get to crochet, make cards, light candles and hunker down! Of course, it's also because the HO-HO-HO holiday is in there too and I LOVE Christmas! Cheers!


Although I love making Wintry Christmas cards and items I'm really not a fan of the cold weather - may favourite season is Summer. I love the warm sunny days spent in the garden relaxing and if I had a swing I would be doing just as Emily is. This is a topper by Hobby House using Emily from Sylvia Zet. 


I love summer, because it's warm and days are longer, you can relax and most impotently enjoy your favourite ice cream everyday ;) This teddy bear really reminds me of summer, I also added bright sunny colours. Can't wait to be summer again :))))


Winter!! Simply because 'tis the season to be jolly fa la la la la, la la la la!!

I can't help but love Christmas, even though the men in the house think I'm bonkers!!
 Woe betide anyone who dares to mess with my tree and don't even get me started  on my dressers!! I love the preparation, anticipation and the lovely feeling I get from conjuring up memories of Christmases past both when I was small and those shared with our Sons when they were little too. 


Well my favourite season is summer, I can't get used to winter at all, maybe it's because I am from the Caribbean where it is always hot and we don't have snow...but I must admit I do love snowmen and I love to draw them here is a couple a drew and water coloured.

My favorite season is winter. I love the weather, snow and the long and dark evenings. Coming home in a warm house. I like December 5th (Dutch Santa Claus) with gifts and sweets. Decorating the house and tree.

So now it's over to you.

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

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