Advent Calendar

After watching a You Tube video on making your own Advent calendars, I decided to make one for each of my grand daughters.  This is my first attempt at creating something like this and although it took me a long time (mainly because I am so slow), I had fun making it.  The first thing I did after making the box grid, was search for a sketch that I thought would work well with this project.  I do hope it will okay for their challenge because it is not a card and am not sure if they will accept that.  Anyway,  this little Tilda stamp I purchased just to use on something for my youngest grand daughter as she just got glassed this past year.  I used several dies on this project from Spellbinders to Sizzlets.  I inked around most the edges and did a little sewing here and there.  I thought the little jingle bells would me a nice finishing touch for the girls. And of course there is lots of stickles here and there!  lol  Thanks so much for stopping by.  Hugs and God bless you all.
