Will you join my challenge?

Hi friends, hope you're all safe, well & warm.
It's a bit nippy over here on the Yorkshire Coast....perfect crafting weather I think, and
what better place to be than your craft room?
It's so good to be back in Blogland, I'm slowly but surely making my way
around all your blogs & feeling more inspired than ever......all I need now is an extra
 day in the week lol!
Anyway, as I mentioned in an earlier post I have a few ideas for my blog.....more
to keep me motivated than anything else....and one of those ideas was to have
a monthly challenge.....I even made a little blog badge to get me started!
Feel free to add it to your blog with a link back to mine!
Ooh I nearly forgot the fun will be a monthly prize for a randomly
 drawn winner.......a surprise this month!

There are a few simple rules:
1.....You can enter just once
2.....You must be a follower of my blog
3.....New makes only, no back linking
4.....Challenge starts 4th of the month at 10am GMT
5.....Challenge ends 24th of the month at 10pm GMT
6.....One winner to be randomly drawn
7.....You must follow the monthly theme
 8.....You can make anything you like, doesn't have to be a card
but must include paper/card & follow the theme

As it's February for all you romantics out there the first theme just has to be
 'LOVE' . 
So to kickstart the challenge, here's my make.........I kept it very simple this time
and made a topper. I thought it might work on a scrapbook layout or even work
 as a piece of home decor too. All the elements are from Studio Light & I simply
layered them up........some flat & some on foam pads. I love the chalkboard effect
but I do have to say it looks much prettier IRL.
Thanks for popping by.......really hoping to see you joining in!
