you quack me up

Laughter is the shortest distance between two people.
~Victor Borge


That Victor Borge was a smart and very funny man. But you know what else shortens the distance between people? – A good blog hop! Welcome to the Perfect Paper Crafting first ever Brand Ambassador Blog Hop.

Blog Hop

If you just joined us from Cathy Rigby’s place and are new to Catered Crop, well, welcome. What took you so long to get here? Just kidding . . . I’m Linda McClain, and I’m thrilled as peach to have you.

If you didn’t join the blog hop at the beginning, you can jump on here: Perfect Paper Crafting. Leave a comment at each stop between now and April 4 for a chance to win a $25 gift certificate to SugarPea Designs or a $50 gift certificate to Perfect Paper Crafting’s on-line store. I’m crazy excited to be joining all these talented fellow Brand Ambassadors.

The Perfect Layers tool is like scissors and adhesive to me. I grab it with nearly every project I make. And, now that it comes in a Mini size – it’s even more perfect. I don’t think it will ever leave my desk top.

Remember to enter the code catered5% when you shop at Perfect Paper Crafting to get the special Catered Crop Discount.

I have a simple card that has just a pop of orange color thanks to the Perfect Layers Mini.


I had to add a little duck in honor of our current “Put a Bird On It” Catered Crop Challenge. Here are the rest of the ingredients.

Thanks for hopping by. I hope you come back soon and hang out with me some more. Until then, enjoy your next stop on the blog hop to join Leigh Brunton.
