Here is a complete line up for the hop in case you get lost along the way. You wont want to miss any of the wonderful projects these talented ladies have made.

 Our wonderful guest designer for you today is PSA Essentials. PSA Essentials  manufacture self-inking custom stamps.  They have a variety of styles and ways to personalize.   The stamp comes ready to go, with black ink already assembled so you can start stamping right away.   There's no assembly required!   Custom stamps are great for stamping your correspondence – no more writing your address dozens of times or icky printer labels. Now on to PSA Essentials project for today.

  PSA Essentials  design team member Heidi Ferguson created this project and this is what  Heidi had to say about her project: " I cut circles out of cardstock and stamped the trees with green on white cardstock.  Then I alternated red and green circles and simply sewed the whole thing together with my sewing machine.  The whole project was pretty fast and would be a good way to create garland cheaply and quickly." She's used PSA Essentials Whimsy Tree Peel & Stick stamps and Hunter ink.
Thank you PSA Essentials for being a guest designer for the 12 Days of Christmas Blog Hop I really appreciate it and appreciate you being a sponsor.
