Deck the Halls it's World Card Making Day!!!

 WOO HOO!!! The big day has arrived. Non-crafters just won't understand; but I know all you fellow card makers understand and relate to my excitement about today. Ok, I know some of you are here from the Operation Write Home blog hop and have lots of hopping to do, (as do I!) so here's the quick skinny on my holiday card today. It is actually designed from a card that Kristina Werner did for Day 3 of her Holiday Card Series last year. (Click the link if you'd like to see the original card)
My card uses the same techniques hers did, I just changed up the paper and colors a bit. Ok, before you go just one last quick note about why I support our soldiers and armed forces. It's simple really...I'm married to a US Marine. So, Semper Fi to all and have a happy WCMD day!!
