IT’S ALL ABOUT LOVE!
It’s February and your Dueling Darling hostess’s Paola for the Dazzlers and Judy for the Divas have chosen this theme of love 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.

Well let me tell you...I loved the dsp so much I wanted to use both sides of each sheet...hmmmmm..... what can I do to accomplish that...the light bulb went on and off to work I went...I cut each of the 3 sheets into 1/2" strips and went to work weaving the strips into this wonderful background alternating the fronts and backs so each side would be seen...AWESOME right?? NO...when I put the card together the whole sheet of weaving was crooked and slanting,.....akkkkk....now what. Well I pulled the whole card apart and started again...hmmmm...maybe if I didn't do such a big sheet it would work....Off to find another layout and create....this time it worked (sort of or at least well enough for me to be ok with it). By the time I got the second card done I was so tired from working a 12 hour day I waited to post until this evening...(sorry)..Then once again the light bulb went off....why not cut some hearts out of the woven paper...great idea..the first heart totally fell apart...(the weave wasn't stuck together)..oh well, I did figure that one out in time but oyi....
Anyway, here is my card:
If you look close enough you can see the middle back panel is woven...
Here is the inside:
Thanks for stopping by, please stop by the other duelers blogs and see their creations...I am sure you won't be disappointed...
Until next time,
