Polka Dot OWH Challenge

Who doesn't love a good challenge? Just for fun I decided to try this blogger/card making challenge thing on for size. Operation Write Home apparently does this every week ... who knew?? The challenge is Polka Dots. That leaves lots of room for interpretation so I'm in.

Did you know know Close To My Heart used to be called D.O.T.S. ?  It seems like there's something polka dotted everywhere I turn in my paper pile. With so many options ... I used plain cardstock and made my own polka dots with a stamp. That makes me laugh. And polka dots make me happy too.

Check out the artwork of all the other people taking this week's challenge at Stars and Stamps.

I love checking out other people's ideas ... isn't that why they invented the internet??


  1. Shelly, nice to meet you, so to speak. I love this card and what great paper you made. I did not know about CTMH's other name. See I learn something here every day. love your ribbon and the dots on your cake stand along with everything else on your card. Hope to see your creations here again soon. Thanks so much for sharing.
