I am so excited to bring to you our very first Operation Write Home and Perfect Paper Crafting blog skip. Operation Write home, (OWH), along with thousands of card makers from all over the world, provide our Armed Forces with blank handmade greeting cards so they can send them home to their loved ones while serving and protecting country. We thought it would be great to let all of our amazing followers, old and new, know about this wonderful organization. I would love for all of you following along with our blog skip (that is what OWH called these smaller blog hops) to make cards according to OWH guidelines and send them OWH. Here is the link for the OWH Mailroom. I hope you all will participate and give back to our Military! Perfect Paper Crafting will be giving away a $50 gift certificate to one lucky winner who follows along and posts a comment on all of the blogs. We will accept comments until Sunday, September 29. Good luck. Also, if you need some inspiration for the cards you make, OWH has sketches to follow here: OWH Sketches.

Here is my A2 size card I created and the sketch I used to make my card for our blog skip:
I used our Perfect Layers tool #2 for all of my layers. I made my layers 1/16″. I even used my Perfect Layers tool for the banner. I just love how precise the layers are and the ease of using our Perfect Layers tools!
I colored up The Greeting Farm Solider Ian with my Copic markers, American Crafts patterned paper and card stock, The Lawn Fawn’s Riley’s ABC’s clear stamps, My Mind’s Eye enamel dots, The Paper Company shimmer beige card stock. I hope you like my card. I had so much fun making it knowing that a someone in our Armed Forces will be able to send this home to some one they miss. What an absolute honor! I am truly grateful for all they do for our country!!
