February Dueling Darlings
Today is the15th, so that means I get to share another Dueling Darlings card with you! Our hostess for the Divas this month was Judy and she and Paola (hostess for the Dazzlers) cooked up something sneaky! I just happened to be with these two lovelies in Seattle when it all went down. I'll let you hop along the card entries to see what I'm talking about ;)
Here is what Judy had to say about our theme and challenge this month:
It’s All About Love!
This theme of love is based on the Bible verses from Corinthians 13: 4,7, 13 “Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres…And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.” (New International Version)
There is so much about love to celebrate in February besides the forever traditional day of love, Valentine’s Day on Feb. 14th. To name a few more celebrations that take place this month and that may inspire you as you create your card for this months duel:
• American Heart Month
• International Friend Month
• Random Acts of Kindness Week (10th – 16th in 2013)
• Brotherhood/Sisterhood Week (17th – 23rd in 2013)
• Send a Card to a Friend Day (Feb. 7th)
• Love Your Pet Day (Feb. 21st)
• Family Day (Feb 18, 2013 in Canada)
With this theme in mind we would like you to sow the seeds of love and kindness you have received in your life. You are challenged to pay it forward by performing a kind gesture and doing it anonymously! The week of the 10th – 16th may be the perfect opportunity for you to do this.
Now I can't tell you what my anonymous gesture was for this week (cause it's a secret), but I can tell you that Judy put together and AWESOME kit for us and I tried to use as many elements as I could. The stamp and sentiment are from the Stampin Up set, Summer by the Sea and colored with Copics. The papers are My Mind’s Eye, Love Me and Pinecone Press Papers, Be Mine and the sparkly red ribbon is Recollections I'm not sure where the buckle or brads are from (you have to ask our lovely hostesses).
Thank you Judy and Paola for another fun month!
Be sure and stop by and see what the Divas and Dazzlers have created today.
