Challenge #26 - "Summer Days"

Autumn is definitely on it's way in the UK, the thermometer is beginning to fall, I've had to put the duvet back on my bed and I heard the first 'honking' of geese flying over in their 'V' formation the other day . . . a sure sign of autumn in my book.

But in celebration of a much overdue and wonderful summer which we have enjoyed this year, our theme is 

" Summer Days"

We are squeezing every last drop out of the sunshine and warmth of summer in an attempt to keep us warm for the autumn and winter to come (yikes, I don't think I'm ready for the cold!!!)

So we would like to see your summer colours, activities, and flowers on your projects, anything really goes just as long as we can spot a connection to summer somewhere on your project.
Please don't forget that your entry MUST feature a bear or teddy too!

Right before I show you what our wonderful Team Teddy DT came up with to kick start the challenge, I should warmly thank all those of you who joined in with our last challenge and pick a winner.

Without further ado, thank you and the winner was (as chosen by Mr

Number 15, that was you Chrissy, with this stunning card
