Operation Write Home + Perfect Paper Crafting Blog Hop

Howzit Friends!
 Today is Operation Write Home's 2013 Birthday Bash and we, the Perfect Paper Crafting Brand Ambassadors, are helping them celebrate in style with a fabulous blog hop!  This is truly an amazing opportunity for us to give back to the men and women of our Armed Forces.



If you're hopping along with us then you should have arrived here from Allison's blog.  If you just happened to stop by my blog today and would like to start the OWH hop from the beginning then go to Stars & Stamps.

I created two Christmas themed cards based on two OWH's sketches and used my Perfect Square and Perfect Layers tools to create all the wonderful mat layering.
