It's time for the Dueling Darlings to duel it out and...
♥ IT’S ALL ABOUT LOVE! ♥
Our hostesses, Paola for the Dazzlers, and Judy for the Divas - chose 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. Some celebrations that take place this month, and that may inspire you as you create your card for the upcoming duel, are: 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.
