Hey Blogger Friends!!

Welcome to a new week of fun.  Last week we had a lot of great entries.  We bet this week we will have a lot of great creations too because we have an all time favorite theme... POLKA DOTS!! They are used in fashion, decorating, publishing... just look around and you will find a world of inspiration.
We can't wait to see what you come up with so let's get started.

For this week we have two fabulous sponsors.

Joining us this week as our Hand picked Guest Designer, 
please welcome Helen Berry

I'm Helen and I live in West Oxfordshire, near the Cotswolds in the UK.  I've been married to my husband Jon for 10 years and we have two gorgeous little boys aged 8 and 5.  My love of papercrafts started back in 2007 when I was unable to find a personalised, handmade Christening card for the daughter of a close friend of mine, so I ended up making my own!   I quickly became addicted to cardmaking, although I've been creative my whole life in one way or another.  My mum taught me to knit and sew, and was always teaching craft classes or preparing for craft fairs in my teenage years. Mum & Granny always had knitting, patchwork or crochet on the go!!
I love making cards, although I do scrap-booking and make mini albums - I love to make jewelry and dabble in home decor.  My latest craze is making my own unique soaps using my clear stamps.  I'm hooked!! I'm always experimenting with new techniques and digital stamps and papers and love anything vintage or shabby - I simply can't get enough of buttons, lace, ribbon, twine and pearls!! I grew up in rural Norfolk and am inspired by nature - I have a real fondness for the roses in my garden, I guess I'm a country girl at heart :)
