Dusty turned Valentine!!

Don't you just love it when two challenges converge into one needy cause? Today is the Operation Write Home's blog hop which you can find here:
The idea from what I can gather as a latecomer is to honor our servicemen/women (Any Hero) sending in cards to either express gratitude or to be used as a Valentine card which our Any Hero can mail home to a loved one. The card I made yesterday had some little pink hearts on it and I purposefully added pink and blue with a dash of red so this card could be sent by a parent in the military to their child (boy/girl) expressing love and letting them know they are missed!! I am planning on mailing this one in to Operation Write Home and they will send it along.
The other challenge was issued by my friend, Charlene (lilluvstampin) on SCS to make a card for Dusty the Bear who is looking for a new home now that his owner left him abandoned in a dirty attic. The bear brigade is on it's way to rescue Dusty and unite him with some little boy or girl that misses their Daddy at home and needs a bear to hug!! Thanks Charlene for the challenge...and stay tuned next Tuesday for a new Teapot Challenge. It is now listed on the challenge forum page on SCS.

Thanks so much for looking, and hope you can make a card for the OWH, what an honor to participate in this cause!


  1. what a sweet card....who would not smile when looking at matter what woes one may have, this will give them joy....wonderful work, my friend

  2. Traci, that is such a sweet card. I am sure that someone will love receiving it. So glad you got to play along, you did link it to the SSCC, right? Right? If I go over there I'd better see your name!

  3. OOps, I didn't and I think I missed the deadline, oh well, I am just happy to send it along!! Maybe next time...Thanks Peggysue!

  4. This is such a beautiful card Traci.. It is perfect for this occasion.. This image is adorable. I have never seen it before.. Perfect for TPT... Super job..

  5. Awwwww! How precious is this sweet bear brigade on their way to help out a fellow bear? So cute, Traci! I love the pretty bg dp you chose and that sweet gingham bow with the button.
    I'm glad you finally made it to the tea party. Bertie has been pestering me to no end "when is Traci coming?" "when is Traci coming?" I don't know what she's up to, but she is looking forward to seeing you, again!

  6. Oh these precious bears are so adorable! What a sweet card Traci!
