We hope this hop gets you in the holiday spirit a little early this year.

Now on with the hop!
I challenge you to get out your cute and cuddly creature stamps and create something holiday
with them. Take them to someplace you wouldn't normally think about them.
Here I've used Paper Smooches stamps to create two different cards for Christmas.
By keeping the animals all white and gray they look more "arctic" and thus more holiday.
Add accessory stamps or die cuts to give them a holiday themed outfit.
Here my moose sports a Santa hat but it could be scarf or stocking cap.
You could even use something like a sled, snowman or inks and masking like I've done
to create a winter scene.
Have fun with the stamps you have and stretch their uses to more than just a
cutesy kids card.
Here is today's hop line-up in case you get lost along the way.
