This fortnight's challenge theme is to showcase a project using 
Your Favourite Summer or Autumn (& 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 has to win this choice as this is when we get to enjoy beautiful long sunny days (if we are lucky), we can walk out without a coat and hopefully enjoy the odd picnic or two.

Although Autumn is my favourite season (Halloween, bonfire night, pumpkins, wind, leaves etc) when it comes to crafting I would have to choose Summer. I love to use bright colours on my cards and lots of sunshine, flowers and of course bunting!

I love the long warm days of summer; lots of sunshine and all the garden (ok, weeds) in colour. I love the longer evenings before it gets dark because it really feels like I can spend some time in daylight outside of work.

I love the bright warm sun of summer and all the beautiful flowers growing in my yard.
Summer has to be my choice. I love the garden full of flowers, all the colours and the warm sun.

I like both seasons. Autumn is great because of all of its colours and autumn is the season for Halloween cards and I really enjoy making those. But summer is also really great because most of the time it means warm weather and happy people. 

I love summer. Nice weather, pretty flowers and being able to get outside without getting cold!

I much prefer summer to autumn when the gardens are at their best and all the flowers are in full bloom.

I love the autumn. The colours are glorious and I love riding or kicking my way through the crunchy leaves on misty mornings.

It's autumn for me.  I don't like the intense heat of summer (or the bugs) but love the mellow warmth and the light of autumn days, even when there is a chill first thing in the morning, and the rich colours of the leaves changing.  I don't even mind it getting dark a little earlier as that is a great reason to be tucked up safely indoors.

Autumn. I really enjoy the discolouration of the leaves. 
I even like the weather. 

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.
