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:

Summer is definitely my favourite season of the year. I love the warmth of the sunshine and the long light days.  I've used this colourful floral image and papers to represent summer. 

Spring is my most favorite season.  I love watching everything wake up after a long Winter's rest.  I love flowers and they begin to appear everywhere.


I love all the seasons but Winter and Christmas are favourite. I love the variety of cards and projects I can make. When the weather is cold outside it is lovely to get in the craft room and play.

I love every season, because they all have something special. I love the cosy feeling I get in the winter, when it is dark and cold outside and I am in house reading under a blanket with a cup of tea to drink. Spring is lovely because everything starts to grow, love the blossom you see everywhere. Summer is nice because of its temperature and you can sit outside. I love the colours of fall. Trees are so pretty when the leaves are changing into all kinds of pretty colours. Because it that time again, I decided to make something for fall and that was the perfect excuse to use all those warm pretty colours.

Spring is my favourite season when you know winter is over and the garden starts to burst into life again with warmer days ahead.

Normally I would say I am a fan of autumn for the amazing colours that she brings, however, I really enjoyed this summer (although at times the heat was too much to bear) and loved being able to wear shorts pretty much all the time!! I also discovered Plum, honey and ginger ice cream...yum!!
It's a toss up between Spring and Autumn for me, Winter is too dark and (certainly this year) Summer is far too hot.  I love the mellow richness of this time of year, the colours, the smells, apples, blackberries and pears, and I don't even mind the shorter evenings so long as I can get home in daylight!

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 for Christmas. Making Christmas cards.

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.
