PSA Essentials and Cottage Cutz Holiday Card Blog Hop

The Scrapping Cottage and PSA Essentials would like you to join us on this festive and fun Holiday Card Blog Hop.  If you have arrived here from Vera Yates blog, you are in the right place.  If not you will want to start at the beginning, Kay Norman's blog.

I have 2 cards to show you today. For my first card I used the Eskimo with Igloo die.  I love Peachy Keen faces so I used one of those instead of the face of the die.  You would need to cut a circle to stamp the face onto.  I used liquid applique on the fur trim and heat set it.  I love the look liquid applique gives to the fur trim. 

For my second card I used the Winter Bird with Ornament die.  This is a really nice die that is easy to use.  I used patterned paper for the ornament and I really like the end result.  The bird and branch can also be used for other seasons, just eliminate the snow on the branches.

What would a hop be if it didn't have a chance for you to win some cool prizes.Here are the details.
PRIZE PACKAGE DETAILS:   Readers who hop to each of the blogs, comment at each, and are a follower of PSA Stamp Camp will be entered to win the “Holiday Card” prize.  This prize contains 3 Peel & Stick stamp sets, 1 stamper, 1 black ink & 1-2 color ink from PSA Essentials.   The winner will also receive a $50 gift certificate to The Scrapping Cottge for the grand prize.   There are also 9 opportunities to win a 3 x 3 die from The Scrapping Cottage.  Leave a comment on my blog for a chance to win a 3x3 Cottage Cutz die of your choice.  I will use a random number generator and announce the winner on Monday Dec. 5th.  Good luck!

Here is the next place for you to hop, Jennifer Holmes blog.  I have included a list of the entire hop in case you get lost.  Remember to leave comments and have FUN!!
