Ruth's Calendar

Here is  the calendar I made for my other grand daughter.  I finally got them both finished and mailed off today.  I hope they will get there on time or at least won't be too far past the 1st.  I had a lot of fun making these calendars and may try to make the grandsons one for next year.  I used this cute little Tilda stamp from Magnolia.  I have had her several years but have hardly used her if ever.  I used the same papers and everything as I used on Hannah's calendar.  I did reverse the red and green cardstock.  Of course I had to stickle things up a little as I do like bling. All edges are inked and borders are sewed.   lol The little sentiment tags are from Magnolia too.  The circle and square edging are Spellbinder dies.  The little doors are made from the flower punch from SU.  The numbers are from sizzlet dies. I added the same little charms as I put on Hannah's too. There are only three little jingle bells on this one as Hannah's has 4.  lol   I hope the girls enjoy these Advent calendars and know that everyday I am thinking of them as they open each door to see what surprise is waiting for them.  Thank you all for stopping by.  God bless you all and I pray each has a very wonderful Thanksgiving.
