Can you believe it? It's December 1st! Time for the first advent calendar surprise! Our advent calendar is a little wooden chest of drawers. Christopher was so thrilled to pull out the first drawer this morning and find a quarter and a piece of caramel. Yum! We discovered early on that nothing beat a sweet treat in the calendar so that's how we roll!
Will you be starting a December Daily album today? I think I will. I can't believe that I've been dragging my heels about it. Maybe because last year's December Daily isn't quite done yet! Yikes! If I get myself in gear I could complete last years and start on today, right? We have a Christmas mini book from 2007 that we really enjoy looking at each year. It's not a December Daily, it has a few highlight photos from the holiday that's become a precious treasure we display each year so that's why I want to make another.
Well, on this first day of December I have a Christmas card to share with you.
Oh how I love Kraft stock and it looks awesome with Echo Park's Season's Greetings collection!
When I create snowy themed cards I almost always rub a little white stamp ink on my papers...gives it that frosty feel!
Christmas cards also call for jingle bells! Got to have 'em! Can you see my bell is a little rusty? Last year I put a handfull of bells in a zip-lock and added a bit of water. Every day I would shake up my bells and soon the water became quite muddy looking. I let them sit in that bag for an entire year and this is all the rust I got!!! The inside is probably the most rusted! I bet I would have had better luck barrying them in the back yard!
You know what I love most about the Season's Greetings line? The stickers! Oh my! There's a big 12x12 inch sheet of stickers that are to die for! CUTE! Like the one I used for this card!
Hope you enjoyed my share! And I wish for you to have an enjoyable first day of December!
I better scoot if I want to finish last years December Daily and start on another!
