Christmas Countdown ...

When my children were little, every year they each would get an Advent Calendar and I loved it when they woke up every morning to open the next window and get that piece of chocolate! It was a fun tradition and in keeping with that idea, I created this fun Christmas Countdown decoration. I did "cheat" a little bit though, as I found the kit for this at Hobby Lobby at half price. 

I purchased the kit and put my spin on it with Christmas paper, added the base, and the Christmas dies to enhance it! I think it turned out great and it was fun to do! All supplies except the basic kit and base can be found at The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store.
