Favourite Autumn or Winter (and why)?

Welcome to As You Like It Challenge

Our fortnightly challenge is a home for you to create something 
which gives you a warm "inner glow" of pride, without lots of entry rules.

Usually we provide options for you to choose from. 
You just need to select and use your favourite option in order to join in. 

For a chance to win our prize or top-3 spot, 
you need to tell us why you've made your choice.
That way our team and readers can appreciate why it's your favourite.

eg, if the theme is 'favourite animal' and you decide on 'bunny', tell us why.
eg, you love Thumper, the rabbit from Bambi !

So get crafting and remember to have fun 
and enjoy your crafting time.

Thank you to everyone who entered our last challenge.

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

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

I love wintry images and the excuse to use a little glitter on the snowy scenes.  I have far more Christmas images than any other theme, so I think that supports my claim that Christmas is my favourite theme to craft for!

It Ľs autumn for me.  I love the wonderful colors the leaves turn, the cool, crisp air and of course, football!

My favourite is Autumn, hands down, Autumn, the smell, the damp the colours, magical..

I prefer winter. I love long crafting nights making Christmas cards.

I have chosen autumn, although I also love winter when it is really cold and the skies are blue and the sun is shining. I love the pretty colours of the fall. Trees look amazing during the autumn months.

Crafting wise I much prefer to make winter/Christmas cards. They are the type where you have a good reason to use glitter, even though it never shows up very well on photos!

 I was born in February, so a winter baby, and actually LOVE cold and frosty mornings and dark nights in front of the fire or snuggled under the duvet when it's raining outside. Also, like Annette I have far more Christmas stamps and images than anything else!

With the exception of wasps, I love everything about autumn, the soft light, the gorgeous colours, sunny days but (in theory) cooler nights.  I don't even mind it getting darker earlier because I can be cosied up indoors!

Autumn for me. I really enjoy the changing colours of the leaves on the trees. 
I also like the smell outside. It gets dark earlier outside and I love to lit a candle inside while it's windy and raining outside. GEZELLIG!

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.
