LOTV Advent Calendar

Hello and I hope you all had a great easter weekend. I've been enjoying all the lovely sunny weather - we just need the temperature to rise a few degrees and then it will feel like spring has finally put in an appearance. Well with the bank holiday weekend and the clocks altering I've lost all sense of time and I've hardly touched the computer, so I shall be popping round later to catch up with you all.

A couple of weeks ago I received a parcel of wonderful goodies from Kelly at Kelly's Cards ( thanks again Kelly) and this was one of the many stamps in it. It's LOTV  'Advent Calendar' which I coloured with Promarkers and added a touch of Stickles. The paper is 'Berry Merry' by Jennifer Ellory and the dies are both Marianne Design Creatables LR0201 Anja border and LR0185 snowflake. I added some card Candi which was also in the parcel and ribbon, button and a sentiment from my stash.

I shall enter this in the following challenges
Lili's Little Fairies challenge 'Buttons N Bows'
Bearly Mine challenge 'Sketch'
Winter Wonderland challenge 'Twinkle Twinkle Christmas Star'
Christmas Cards All Year Round challenge 'O Christmas Tree'
Papertake Weekly challenge 'Anything Goes'
Simon Says Stamp and Show challenge 'Anything Goes'
The Crafty Bloggers Network challenge 'Anything Goes'
Simon Says Stamp challenge 'Anything Goes' (my 2nd entry)

Thanks for dropping by and I hope you come back again.
