As always, thanks so much to those who participated! If you think you might like to join the denizens of WetCanvas's chatroom in the monthly CAC, please pop into the chatroom sometime (click Tools, above, and select Chat Live from the drop-down menu) and ask one of the 'regulars' for the link for February's reference image.
