February Challenge Theme: LOVE

Welcome to my February challenge! 

The theme this time is LOVE, in all its wonderful guises! In February, our thoughts naturally turn to romance and Valentines ~ or maybe to some humorous "anti-Valentines" sentiments if you're single! (My youngest son is currently on this bandwagon.)

And romance, valentines, and anti-valentines are all perfect for this challenge.
But I don't want to limit this theme to only romantic love... Let's expand the theme to embrace other kinds of love as well. Love between friends, between parents and children, sisters and brothers, love of family... love for and from our furry friends... the love that inspires us to share with others and care for others, to work for compassion and kindness and fairness for others, even people we've never met... 

I don't mean to get too philosophical. If I get all Valentines and romance, I'll be happy! :-)  I just want to make sure that everyone feels free to interpret this theme however they like, to reflect what love means to you in your life. LOVE... we certainly need more of it, in every form!

I always enjoy seeing some Lunagirl images in the challenges. You'll find lots of inspiration at to help get you started... image collections by download or CD, and hundreds of digital collage sheets! A good starting point this time would be my Valentines collection, I suppose.

    1. Beautiful DT samples. Thanks for the "love" challenge for the month of February.

    2. Great examples DT. Been a while since I have been able to enter Karen...xx

      1. Welcome back! Your Retro Red Valentine is gorgeous.

    3. Karen...I have a question for you. Are we allowed to enter more than one “Love” piece this month? I have been reading the rules above, but I do not see if this is allowed or not, Being a newbie, I want to follow the rules. I love all of the pictures and sheets I have gotten from you. They are all beautiful. I feel so fortunate to have found my way to your blog and learned of all that you do for all of us. If you want to answer me via email, it is:
      I will check back here to see if you answer here. I will not post until I hear from you. Thanks so much for your help. Fondly, Genie

      1. Hi Genie ~ You can always enter up to 3 pieces. I don't know how I managed to leave that out of the rules, but yes you can enter more than once! Thanks for bringing that to my attention, I'll add it to the rules...

    4. gorgeous samples from your design team!

    5. Thank you for the challenge and the lovely freebie. I have some of your collage sheets but decided to use the freebie. Lovely work by the design team.

    6. Karen...I have put up my three pieces that I have made. This is all so new to me as you know so I wanted to let you know. I have been looking carefully at all of the participants’ works and at times feel really intimidated but at others inspired to go upstairs and keep on working. The sad part is that in 1995, I sold all of my hundreds of stamps and all of my card making things, and so much time has gone by now it is like starting from new without any of my stuff... bad move! I am having to take little baby steps. I adore your sheets and just love to look at them on my computer screen....and naughty me....I am getting ready to get some more. You really do have a devoted customer in me. I hope people see the button and link I put at the top of my blog to draw them to your site. I hope you have a nice weekend before bad weather starts moving in next week. genie

      1. All your pieces are beautiful, and just perfect for the challenge! I'm glad to have you in the challenges, and I'm glad you're having fun! I look forward to seeing more of your lovely work ~ Karen


    I appreciate your visit and your comments! ~ Karen
