Perfect Sentiments Anniversary Celebration Challenge #53C - Christmas Critters

Hello everyone and welcome to the third day of our one year birthday/anniversary challenge celebration at the Perfect Sentiment! We have four fun challenges planned for you that we will spread out over the next few days. 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.

PSC53C: The Challenge/Twist: 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!

Hop along to the following blogs to see what our Perfect Sentiments Team has created to inspire you!

Be sure to leave a comment at each blog as there are hidden prizes along the way. 

Once you are inspired to create, come back and link up your creation using the inlinkz tool below to have a chance at today's prize:

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.

As part of the celebration of our first Anniversary, I will be giving away a set of Tim Holtz's Spring Distress Inks to one lucky, randomly chosen winner who participates in all 3 of the challenges I am doing this week (B, C & D) and leaves a comment on my blog each day. 

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.
