Advent Calendar – Countdown to Christmas ~ Day 20

Day 20 of the Advent Calendar, Elly, my friend from the UK, created during her visit in early October, the time has passed so fast as it seems only last week she was here!  We spent 2 very happy days designing an advent calendar using ink, stamps, glitter, embellishments and a 24 cup muffin pan!

You will want to open each post, as there will be a little treat behind each one!  Some days it might be some virtual ‘candy’ or sweeties as we call them in the UK, other times it might be a card, 3D project or a video!

Each of the squares start with a 2 1/4 x 2 1/4 inch base with 4 little magnets stuck to the back with glue dots.  The primary colors are  Real Red, Old Olive, Smoky Slate and Soft Sky. Ink Colors included those above, plus two neutrals of  Tip Top Taupe and Early Expresso.



For the extreme temperatures (for North Texas at least) we have been having over the last few days ~ these cozy mittens are perfect.

Once again the Candy Cane Christmas Stamp set was used to create this square, stamped in Soft Sky and layered onto a Smoky Slate tag cut from the Tags and Labels Framelits Dies and the Big Shot.

The snowballs were created from theMini Pom Pom trim, 4 of the little pom poms attached to the card with glue dots then the fine tip glue pen dribbled all over them before sprinkling some Dazzling Diamonds glitter over the top.  The same was done for the cuff of the mitten,
