I like to make handmade cards and my dogs are with me every step of the way. I have cardboard boxes from Costco with pillows made up for them to sleep in while I make my cards, so I have boxes of dogs! Three of my little ones have gone over the Rainbow Bridge, but I know they are still watching over me.

OWH Midweek Throwdown Challenge - Favorite Color Combination
This week's Midweek Throwdown Challenge at Operation Write Home is a color challenge. We are challenged to use a favorite color combination and share why. Since I have a very long list of favorite combinations and simply love color, I decided to just go with one of my favorites which is purple and green. I think it has a sentimental hold on me because back in ancient times (the early 1970's!) doing your own tie-die shirts was very popular. I took a light green t-shirt and a box of purple Ritt dye plus some rubber bands and made my own tie-dye shirt. Very bright yellows, blues, and reds were extremely trendy at the time so my more subdued color combination drew a lot of comments (much to my surprise). I wore that t-shirt for quite a few years until it faded away. So, that is my story about why I have an attachment to green and purple as a color combination!
