Advent Calendar.

Hi everyone, just a quick post to show you the Advent Calendar I made for Poppy and Oliver. I bought a Kaisercraft kit of Advent calendar and all the DP and bits and pieces needed to make it from Merly Impressions. You have to put together the framework for the calendar and make up all the little drawers but I think it was worth it.

Both sides have a flourish down the side painted in gold. The sides and front of the main framework were also painted in gold.
I made this in a hurry so that I could take it to Catriona in time for the 1st of December. I didn't have time to put anything in the drawers so I think she was going to put some little sweeties in them. Maybe next year I'll be more organised lol.

Poppy was at her preschool Christmas party today and Santa was there so she is quite excited. Apparently she is being good - mostly - just in case!!

Oops nearly forgot about the challenges I'm going to enter with my calendar.

Cute Card Thursday :- For the kids.
Paperplay :- Anything but a card.
One Stitch at a Time :- Anything Goes.
Papertake Weekly :- Anything Goes.

Hope you like my Advent calendar and thanks for looking.
