Advent calender B&W

Well been and got the car fixed, my hair cut and an eybrow wax!  Not a bad morning altogether.  I will be away for the weekend so this will be my last post until sunday.  have a good weekend all :o)

My project for today is an advent calender

I have used dove craft christmas papers for this,  how to mske this advent calender is listed in a previous post.  Brads from my stash are used on the drawers.

Side 2


Side 4

I have used a forever friends father teddy stamp! and coloured it with pro markers and cut it out, then attatched it to my new spelbinders metallics frames. pearls have been added for sparkle, and glitter on the fir of the teddies coat and hat

glitter has also been added to the die cut

Sentiment is an unknown stamp, punched out and inked and added to a silver metallics die cut.

The stopper for the easle section is also from the same die set, with glitter and pearls for sparkle

I will be entering this project into the following challenges Something old(stamp) something new(spellbinders dies) Black & white Plus 1 colour(silver) Anything Christmas goes

Thanks for stopping by
