Favourite Season


Good Morning crafters and I hope you are well today.  I can't believe that the weekend will soon be here, but before that we have a new challenge at

As You Like It Challenge

and our theme this time is Your Favourite Season ( and WHY).

I'm hopeless at picking "favourites" and love all of the seasons for different reasons, however the romantic in me picked Winter. I'll set the scene - having a lovely canter on a frosty morning, crumpets and tea in front of a  wood burning stove, cosy quilts to snuggle under (human and equine!!) and, of course Christmas.

So I made a Christmas card...


A new Be Bunni stamp had an outing and was coloured with SN pencils. The backing paper is from a  Doodlebug pad, the pearl mat was embossed with an unknown folder and the sentiment is from a CB set.

I am entering these challenges

Penny's Paper Crafty challenge #192 - Children and/or Christmas
Fan-tastic Tuesdays #50 - Anything Goes
Creative Inspirations #278 - Flower Power

Hope you will take a peep at my team mates' splendid cards (ooh, that's a good word!!) and enjoy your day whatever you are up to.

Bye for now xx

Oh, what a cutie! I'd love to say my favourite is summer, but I can't actually remember what one of those is like! lol. However, after spending years slugging the 2.5 mile school trip through all weather types, including snow, I can safely say that I hate snow the most, so winter is out too!
I DO love Christmas cards though especially when they have adorable bunnies and Poinsettias! x

Love your card Sarah. You almost made me like the winter when you were talking about the crisping fire and the hot cup of tea. These aspects of the winter along with the snow I like but that's just it. I am a true summer person. LOL
Hugs, Veerle x x

I'm drooling over the crumpets! Not sure about the frosty canter as I've never been on a horse in my life, but it always looks like such fun (DD likes to ride when she can and assures me it is great pleasure). Love this Christmas bunny with his pretty poinsettia. You find the cutest images. It made a beautiful card. Winter is indeed a marvelous season. TFS & Hugs

Gorgeous card Sarah - adorable image and the red really pops.
Not sure I could choose a favourite season - but if pushed I would guess the Summer - being a sun worshipper :o)
