Very Special Anything Goes Challenge at Michelle's Scrapbooking!

Today I'm so happy to be making a card for a very special challenge being held at Michelle's Scrapbooking and More!
The challenge is to help raise awareness of the wonderful work done by the fabulous people over at Operation Write Home
This wonderful organization was started by Sandy Allnock in 2007. They support our US armed forces by sending blank handmade greeting cards to write home on, as well as cards of gratitude to encourage them.
This challenge is a super easy one as it is "Anything Goes!" and I hope you will pass the word on to as many bloggers as you can.
There are great prizes, just drop by Michelle's Scrapbooking and More to see all about it!

Scrumpdelishioso! No that's not a real word but it sure looks like Tilda is enjoying those luscious strawberries. Love all the pinks and greens together. Sweet card...hugs...Barb

Chris said...

another great card, as if I would expect less.
is that faux stitching? it looks better than my real machine stitching.
don't know if you have a sewing machine but if you don't and are interested, if you have a Hancock's fabric store nearby they were on sale for $49 when I was in last week. that's a lot of ifs but I figured I'd tell you just in case.
