February Calendar Girls

Our February Calendar Girls challenge from our hostess, Kelly, was this:

It’s February, the month of LOVE ♥ I’m thrilled to be your hostess this month and offer you a challenge of a different sort Rather than go for the traditional Valentine’s card, I wanted to ask that you each make a card – as a reflection of yourself – and share a little LOVE!

This month, please create a card (or project) that shows what YOU love … something that when we look upon your card, we will know exactly what that ONE thing is that you love so much!


You may use any colors you would like but extra brownie points for using non - traditional colors!!
* Please include one thing only – I know it’s hard {However, if it's fruit, for example, you may include a basket of it rather than just one fruit}

YOUR BONUS CHALLENGE: As a extra bonus, but completely optional part of the challenge, I would LOVE for you to send your card to a place/organization that you LOVE. Share the LOVE this month by sending your card to someone in need – OWH, children’s charities, RMH


I could have done a card about crafting, but loving that is a given about me.  I also have done a card before that reflects reading, because I really love reading...but this card shows something that you may not know about me.

 
Yes, I do love Candy Corns!!  However, I only try to eat them in the fall, when its Candy Corn Season, of course!!! ;)
 
The images and sentiment are from an A Muse sent call "Candy Corn Kisses" and the sketch is from MFT.  
 
Thanks for stopping by.  See my sidebar for all the Calendar Girls blogs and to find out what they love!

What a cute card--I'd say sweet card--but I am sure more puns like that will come.

Great Layout too!

Great card Debbie! I just saw candy corn for Valentine's Day...red, pink and white. I think every season is candy corn season!!!

Love it :-)

Cute, cute, CUTE! The colors are so bright and cheery, just what a person needs in the middle of the winter. I like how the candy corn looks like it's sprinkled across the card front.

Nothing better than candy corn and a good book, right?!

The best news is that you can have my share of the candy cord. Even better news is this is the cutest card! I love how you thought of something different.
