This fortnight's challenge theme is to showcase a project using 
Your Favourite Summer or Winter Colours (& why).
You MUST explain WHY it is your favourite.

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

Despite good intentions of doing a couple each month, 
I haven't actually made any Christmas cards yet this year! 
I much prefer using pretty Summer colours 
like this yellow and pink combination

I don't normally opt for orange and yellow 
but I have been feeling really cold lately 
(despite it being June!) 
so I'm craving some warm colours.  
These sunshine tones fit the bill perfectly.

Summer colours make me smile, they are my favourite colours to use!

I love summer colours because they are bright and cheerful.

With the miserable grey weather we've had of late I've been craving some jolly Summertime zingy colours and this cheery Hummingbird definitely fits the bill!

I have picked summer colours. I love that you can use bright and happy colours in the summer and I love those. When I saw this stamp set I immediately thought about happy pastels that are perfect for an ice cream truck.

I don't really like hot weather, but I do tend to use far more bright summery colours on my cards than winter ones... I like all colours though, I'm not fussy!

I've chosen Summer as I love to see all the wonderful flowers out in the gardens, everything seems so lush and healthy.

I tend to choose the icy cool colours of Winter. I had my own "colours done" many years ago and the colours in my wardrobe have always influenced my paper choices too!!


Being a furry little critter, I have an affinity with winter, 
and really struggle with summer, 
tail wilt is a real issue in high temperatures.
It was a tough choice as I love all colours, 
but it's been a long time since I played with winter colours 
and wanted a chance to cool down.

 I love the colours in the summer. 
The green grass, the (meadow) flowers, the leaves 

and flowers on the (fruit) trees. It makes me happy.

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.
