CRAFT Challenge 163, Summer

Morning all!

Thursday again already and time for another challenge here at CRAFT Challenge. This week our challenge is


So, any project fitting this subject will be eligible for a prize. There is a maximum of 5 entries per person each challenge, so please don't enter any more than that or they will not be counted. May we also remind you that back linking is not allowed. We would like to avoid disappointment.

We hope you will enjoy playing along with this one again. For all those in the UK, I think it is fair to ask 'What Summer?!!', as we have not actually seen a lot of it this year. A bit of sunshine here today though. As another little thing to brighten up our day, there is a freebie at Jo's digistamp blog to get you started (easel card sheet) and a related challenge there as well. There is a tutorial on her blog on how to use this as well, or find it also on our blog following the link in the side banner.

Please scroll down to find the winners of last week's challenge, our Top3 and our Star(s) of the Month. If you were one of them, please contact us to claim your prize and/or badge. 

This week we have 4 sponsors, so there will be 4 chances to win in this challenge. Just for clarification, there are no first, second or other places in our winners, but our first winner drawn will win the prize from our first sponsor, the second drawn the prize from the second sponsor, etc.

So, here are our sponsors for this week:
