Countdown to Christmas
When I saw the challenge on EveryBody Art Challenge was Advent this week I had a lightbulb moment of making a countdown to Christmas. I vaguely recall seeing something similar last year but rather than try and find it and see if theres a tutorial I sort of managed on my own.
I use my Zutter bind it all for the number cards the size of which was determined by the size of my little snowman. I also used more number than needed so the cards weren't lopsided so I can count down from 99. I cut the numbers with the cricut I think the cartridge is Base Camp.
I know I've used the Cuddly Buddly Snowmen but they're so cute and work a treat together. The papers are from Nitwits. Couldn't understand what was wrong with my Marianne trees but later I worked out I have used my Snowfall Cuttlebug Embossing folder by which time it was too late the tree were well and truly stuck.
Don't forget to check out the team's fabulous creations.
Well my Hubby is now on Winter hours and due to some changes early in the year it works out he has a four day week and it was most odd to have him home yesterday although he did go out for few hours but I did use it to my advantage. The Range has opened in Aldershot still a good twenty minutes away but I couldn't resist and they had some new First Editon paper pads which accidentally fell in my basket.
