OWH Blog Hop: Celebrating World Cardmaking day!

Stampabilities Stamp, SU Sticker, Paper Studio paper
Happy World Card Making Day!!!


This day may be my favorite holiday ever!!!! (Besides Halloween!!)
Thank you for hopping with us today!! Operation Write Home has become such a wonderful outlet for me. I get to share my talents with people and they can use it to make their friends and family know that they are thinking of them while they are away on their duties.




Because of OWH I have met so many amazing people, and created such amazing friendships that I will love forever. Enough of the sappy stuff.
