As You Like It Challenge #67 - Favourite Season and WHY

Hi Crafters,

What is your favourite Season?
That's the question we are asking this week at As You Like It.
Although I love to make Wintry Christmas cards and items I'm really not a fan of the cold weather. My favourite season is Summer.
I love the warm sunny days spent relaxing in the garden and if I had a swing like my little image Emily has on my card today then I would be doing just that too.

Recipe
Topper - Hobby House
Papers - Old ones from stash 
Sentiment Stamp - Papermania
Tattered Lace Decorative Edge Circle Die
SB Scalloped Circle Die
Gems

Challenges I'd like to enter:
Crafty Catz - #301 Girls Only
Incy Wincy Designs - Critters Large and Small
TTCRD - ATG


Our sponsor this time is

Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps

Now it's over to you...
Please follow the theme and tell us WHY you have a favourite season.

That's all from me for now,

Lorraine 
xXx

Sheer delight looking at this image/card. I love summer too but at the moment it's around the 40degrees celcius here and we just had a lovely swim and it's 8.30pm, the water is still warm.... { aNNie}

I love this bright and happy card Lorraine. It's a beauty and such lovely colours. Great design work too. I like Spring best when everything is fresh and green and we know summer is on the way. Barbxx

Lorraine a gorgeous topper you have there and a beautiful background to match. I'm more of a Spring person myself, I love to see the tulips and daffs coming through and the lighter nights, with the promise of finer weather ahead.

Hugs Erika. x

Oh it's a beautiful card Lorraine. The topper is gorgeous and I love your colour combo. I love winter, especially sunny, crisp days whe you can go out for a good long walk and there is nothing nicer than spending time in your craft room when it is freezing cold outside.
Hugs
