Day 16 ~ Almost there!!!!
Hi Everyone!! Today is my day to host the Belles and whistles advent giveaway! I am very excited! I LOVE advent calendars of all kinds and actually collect them as well. My daughters love the chocolate calendars and look forward to opening the door each night for a little treat before bed. My favorite is a felt tree my mother made for me when I moved to my own place. We had the same one growing up and I love it, so she made me my own. I hang a Hallmark miniature ornament on it each day.
Here is my first attempt at two things! First is a matchbox advent calendar. My friend Denise and I got together and each made one. I used retired SU wintergreen papers for mine along with the Christmas Hearth image. I also made some snowflakes out of vellum and embossed with iridescent ice EP. This is also my first easel card. How fun and easy! I did a close up of the card. It measures 4 1/2 square. I included a gift card as well as this is a present for my soon to be sister in law. The little matchboxes are the perfect size for Hershey's miniatures.
Be sure to enter Mr. Linky for your chance at some goodies!!!
