Work for these challenges must be completed and posted before end of day February 21 to claim bonus points. If you cannot manage a photo in time (say, you finish the LO late February 20, and the 21st is a dark snowy day,) posting a brief description of the LO and a full list of supplies will do if you promise to show us the LO. This IS about using your stash - you should get points for it! But we want to be inspired by you as well!

This week’s challenges are brought to you by the upcoming holiday, Valentines Day! Since products and manufacturers beginning with V and L are not many, we'll just go with the related letters: V, R, and L.

1. Themes: Create a LO about or involving Love, Like, Live/Life, Light, Laughter, 10 points per LO.

2. Embellishments: Use lots of my favorites: labels. Give yourself 10 points for each LO that uses at least two of these. They don't have to be big! If making a card, you have to use at leeast one label/card.

3. Manufacturers: Give yourself 10 points for each LO that features products by Little Yellow Bicycle or my Little Shoebox!

4. Inspiration:

Thank you Karen! You're right on the money.

Basically, If it looks like a label, if it acts like a label, call it a label!

About the only things I wouldn't call a label would be straight square or rectangle pieces of CS - it should be embossed or die cut or punched or a border added somehow. Name tags and mailing labels count too!

I have some Martha Stweart labels (I think) that are rather large that I used on some of my cards this weekend, so you'll see those later today.

Can you clarify what you mean by labels?
