Advent Calendar Extravaganza

Today I'm participating in a super fun event!  Taheerah's Advent Calendar Extravaganza!


Advent Calendar Extravaganza is -the- festive event of the season! This ‘hop with a twist’ was dreamed up by Taheerah Atchia and features surprise destinations each day! Joining in the fun with Taheerah are ONE HUNDRED special guests - each serving up some fantastic Christmas inspiration! Just like an Advent Calendar, you’ll never know where you’re going to be visiting next until you ‘open the door’!

And that’s not all! With 25 *amazing* sponsors taking part as guests as well, your crafty wish list is bound to get a boost with a chance to win a prize EVERY SINGLE DAY!!

Join in the fun every day at taheerah-atchia.com to see what special surprises await behind the door!

My post features some fun stamps from Waffle Flower Crafts:


I created a fun Christmas card inspired by Taheerah herself :)  She has the cutest shoes I've ever seen and I'm sure she has a few pairs on her list for Santa this year!  

I stamped the cute shoes with the First Step Stamp Set and cut them out using the matching First Step Die.  I used Copic markers to color them in.  The sentiment was custom made by pairing the Stockings Stamp Set with the Cutaway Alpha Stamp Set.   The background piece was cut using one layer from the Pinking Layers Die.  I added a bit of patterned paper from Doodlebug Designs to finish off the look.

It’s not a party without a prize - and with prizes every day there are several chances to win! Today’s prize is generously supplied by Waffle Flower Crafts so you’ll definitely want to win! Simply leave a comment on this post - then head back to taheerah-atchia.com and leave a comment there too! You must leave a comment on Taheerah’s blog as well as mine in order to be eligible to win!

Cute card; great sentiment

Cute card! I resemble that remark! LOL TFS!

Jean Bullock said...

Oh my gosh, this is adorable. I have a friend who absolutely loves shoes. This card would be perfect for her.

bev p said...

Great card! I have one sister who has more shoes than any one person can wear. Lots of them are still new and she can't wear them because she can no longer walk in them. (i call them "sitting shoes!") We used to gag gift her with a pair of really ugly shoes at Christmas--she never knew which package or from whom they would show up! Needless to say, I am smiling at the memories your card evoked! Thanks so much.
