The Challenge title this month is INTERNATIONAL FRIENDSHIP.  It can be between humans and/or animals.  It's your interpretation of the title.

To enter this months challenge, please post your entry on your blog and use the InLinkz box at the bottom of the competition blog post to provide a direct link to your project. The rules are that we only require 1 item which can be purchased from J & C Creations to be featured on your project.  Please include this on your blog post. The Challenge will close at 6pm on the 12th March.

As always, could we ask a huge favour please; could you help to make our job at leaving comments easier by turning off comment verification and enabling comment moderation instead. Please, pretty please, it’s ever so easy to do  and you won’t get spam comments as you can easily reject the comments that you don't want to appear. Also, can we remind you nicely that it’s fine to combine challenges but please, no back linking.

Sometimes it is not possible for the Design Team to leave a comments on every entry with these Blogger issues that some of us are having at the moment, but please be assured that we do stop by and we are doing our best and every single eligible entry goes into the draw for our prizes even if we don’t manage to leave you a comment.

Here is some inspiration to get you started on this month’s Challenge, we will be posting more inspiration throughout  February.
