Passion For ProMarkers Mega Christmas Challenge

How excited did I get when I saw the Passion For ProMarkers Mega Christmas Challenge ?  I bought a new stamp (yes, another one) from High Hopes a little while ago that I've been itching to use and also wanted to make an Advent Calendar so this seemed the perfect opportunity to combine the two -

Sorry for the poor quality of this photo but I took it on my phone after I'd done the colouring but before I'd laminated the calendar.  I'm really chuffed with how this beautiful Nativity scene worked, especially the donkey.

I had a tinker on the PC to produce the calendar part, did a little bit of matting and layering and then stuck it all together and layered on to a sheet of stunning satin mirri card, the photo doesn't really do it justice.  Should have taken a photo before laminating so sorry for the glare.  A little bit of organza ribbon for the hanger and hey presto!

I had great fun making this, and hubby spotted it straight away when he got home last night.  Hope you like it.

Hugs, Squirrel xxx

Trudy Osborn said...

LOL! Chuffed? That is a new one for me. What does it mean exactly? I can tell you are excited, so I get the general meaning.

Great calendar, I think I need to come up with something like this for my boys, so they quit asking me how much longer till Christmas.
