Christmas Magic - PSC53D

Well, we've finally gotten to the end of the week and the weekend.  I hope you've had as much fun playing along with us and I have had creating all these fun cards. This is the last day of our one-year birthday/anniversary challenge celebration at the Perfect Sentiment!  We have sponsors who have donated generous prizes for each challenge and since we are doing this blog hop style, there are hidden prizes along the way. The good news is you still have 2 full weeks to complete all the challenges and blog hops. There will also be a grand prize that you will be eligible for if you complete all the challenges! You can see the Grand Prize and add you name to the inlinkz here once your complete all four of the challenges.



The Challenge/Twist for today is to  create a card with a sentiment for the occasion of your choice. Include the sentiment on the front. / Include a bird or a bloom on your card or a combination of both.

Here is the card that I created for today's challenge.

Materials Used:
  • Image - Floppy Latte - Bird and Bauble
  • Sentiment - Just Rite - Noel Christmas Ornaments
  • Cardstock - XPress It Blending Card; Stampin Up Cherry Cobbler
  • Designer Paper - My Mind's Eye - Christmas
  • Bling - Dress It Up - Holiday Petals
  • Ribbon - from my stash; Bowdabra
  • Spica Gel Pens - Green and Silver
  • Silver Stickles
  • Copic markers - B0000; G12, G21, G24; R22, R27, R39, R59; T2; YR68; 0

Now, hop along to the following blogs to see what our Perfect Sentiments Team has created to inspire you.

Jenn 
Maggie - You are here!

Be sure to leave a comment at each blog as there are hidden prizes along the way. Once you are inspired to create, go back to PSC and link up your creation using the inlinkz tool to have a chance at today's prize.  Our Sponsor & Prize: Stitchy Bear Stamps: http://stitchybearstamps.com/shop/  $15 gift voucher.
As I mentioned above, this is our final challenge of the celebration and we will be looking forward to your creations over the next couple of weeks. Deadline to get all entries in and finish the blog hops is by 6pm EST on October 30th. We will have a new challenge for you on Oct 31 and winners & perfect 3's from the celebration challenges and blog hops will be announced on Nov. 2nd.

Don't forget So, in addition to the PSC celebration, I am also celebrating my one-year anniversary of my blog.  It's a little overdue since I started in July of last year.  October is also my birthday month, so this is so appropriate for me to also have a celebration.  So, drum roll please =============   For the PSC blog hop, I will personally be giving away a small stamp or stamp set each of the 4 days.  Here's a photo of what you could win.  If you play in any of the 4 challenges on my blog, in addition to linking up on the PSC challenge blog, please leave a comment on my blog that you were here and were inspired by my card.  That way I'll know who has played and who hasn't from my blog. 

 At the end of our blog hop, I will be awarding this Birthday Prize to one lucky winner who plays in all for of my card challenges.  I will have a card posted here on my blog for each of the 4 days.
 
Looks like that's it for today.  Thanks again for stopping by my blog and leaving your comments.  I appreciate each of you and your kind words.  Hope you  have a fabulous weekend.
