Christmas Angel - PSC53C

Hi and Happy Friday.  Welcome to day three of our one-year birthday/anniversary challenge celebration at the Perfect Sentiment! There are four fun challenges planned for you that are being spread out over four days. One more day to go.  I hope you've been enjoying all the beautiful cards created by the DT.  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 will have 3 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 Christmas; include a critter somewhere on your card. We are looking for animals, bugs, mice, etc. Not humans. You can have a human on your card but, there must be evidence of a critter somewhere. For example: A little girl holding a puppy would work fine. Don't forget to include you sentiment on the front!

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

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 to the Perfect Sentiment Challenge Blog and link up your creation using the inlinkz tool at the bottom of the post to have a chance at today's prize.

I am slowly getting my Christmas cards done and this was a great opportunity to get one more finished.

Our sponsor for today -Crafty City will award one lucky random winner a $5 gift voucher to be used in their store.  Plus, if you spend $25 or more they will throw in this 6x6 Paper Pad by Glitz Designs:

Regretfully, if you are a prize winner who lives outside of the United States, we will have to substitute your prize with a digital prize that can be sent via electronic mail. By the time we have to do the customs paperwork and everything associated with sending parcels out of the United States, it always costs more than what the prize is worth in most cases, and this includes Canada, unless you have a Post Office Box in the United States. APO and PPO box addresses are considered US. Thanks for your understanding. 

Be sure to come back tomorrow to see what the team has in store for you! 

Please note: for our anniversary/birthday celebration you may not combine our challenges. You must complete a separate card for each challenge. You are welcome to combine with challenges from other blogs and sites; however you must create a different project for each of our four challenges; and as always you may enter as many times as you like!Thanks for your understanding.  

What a fabulous gift.  Now, get inspired and go create your own Christmas Critter card.  I can't wait to see what you come with.

 Don't forget  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 four of my card challenges that I will have posted here on my blog for each of the 4 days.

Thanks again to all of you my friends for coming by and leaving all your sweet, kind comments.  I really appreciate them.  I hope you'll play along and come back again tomorrow.
