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

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.
