Operation Write Home - Polka Dot Challenge

Hello, everyone!  Welcome back.  It seems I have been away from my blog for a few days again, but I assure you...I have been working my pudgy fingers to the bone and will have lots of things to share this week.  I have two posts to share with you today.   Dang!  I never thought I'd utter those words ;D

The Paper Shelter teamed up with Operation Write Home and is sponsoring this week's challenge on their blog.  And what is this week's theme?  None other than an homage to those fresh little pops of colorful joy known as...Polka Dots!  I love 'em, you love 'em, everybody loves 'em!  They just make me so happy;D

I created my Polka Dot card using In the 20's.  She's a lovely image and so much fun to color.  She seemed perfect for pairing with some vintage dotty text paper.  The Paper Shelter adds new images to their shop frequently so be sure to stop by often to check it out.  Also, swing by Operation Write Home's blog and get all the details regarding this fab new challenge.  Operation Write Home is a great organization.  I did a little poking around the Internet and found the following information about this amazing group..."they support our nations armed forces by sending blank, handmade greeting cards to write home on, as well as cards of gratitude to encourage them".  This organization has been collecting and shipping cards to soldiers since 2007 and it is very close to hitting the one million mark.  Wow!  Please check them out, they are definitely worth a look!
