Advent Calendar Extravaganza

December 23, 2017





Hello!  Our friend Taheerah is having an Advent Calendar blog event and we are so happy to be a part of it again this year.   
Advent Calendar Extravaganza is -the- festive event of the season! This ‘hop with a twist’ was dreamed up by Taheerah Atchia and features surprise destinations each day! Joining in the fun with Taheerah are ONE HUNDRED special guests - each serving up some fantastic Christmas inspiration! Just like an Advent Calendar, you’ll never know where you’re going to be visiting next until you ‘open the door’!

And that’s not all! With 25 *amazing* sponsors taking part as guests as well, your crafty wish list is bound to get a boost with a chance to win a prize EVERY SINGLE DAY!!

I made this fun card for the event!  The wreath fits the center circle from our Horizontal Stripes Die Cut perfectly.  Don't you love that?  I also trimmed the Horizontal Stripes Die Cut down into a square shape for this card.  I love being able to customize my die cuts to get more looks out of them!


Supplies:

Avery Elle is offering up a $20 gift certificate as a prize so be sure to check out Taheerah's blog for all of the details.  There are a lot of prizes and the event runs from Dec 1st through the 25th.   Simply leave a comment on this post - then head back to taheerah-atchia.com and leave a comment there too! You must leave a comment on Taheerah’s blog as well as ours in order to be eligible to win! Don’t forget to grab the other surprise destinations from Taheerah’s blog and head over to them to leave comments there as well to improve your odds even more! You have until 23:59 EST on 31st December 2017 to enter.

Thanks for stopping by to take a peek. Have a great day!

Using the background die like that makes it look like the wreath is hanging on white shutters on some Christmas cottage. I love how you can create that illusion with a geometric die.
