Good evening

This is a quick post to show you something a little different. 

I don't know about you but I love anything to do with Christmas and an Advent calander is still a part of our Christmas preparations, even though my son is now a teenager!!  This year I decided to have a go at making my own and here it is:

The papers are "Little Mittens" by Nitwits.  The little bells have been stiched onto the little drawers.  The figures on the top are also from the "Little Mitten" kit which I printed onto card and cut out and fixed to the top.  Flower soft has been sprinkled around the figures as snow.

I enjoyed doing this project as it was something different from cards and my son was quite pleased with the result. 

I would like to enter the following challenges:

Allsorts Challenge : Week 183 - Advent
Totally Papercrafts : Challenge #145 - Anything Christmasy but a Card

I'm off to bed now otherwise I won't be getting up in the morning for work.
