Christmas Advent Calender

A warm Hello to everyone. First I really want to thank Cheery Lynn Designs for designing such awesome dies for us to create with. I have played with several of the new ones now and am so impressed. This week the Challenge theme is "Fun with Letters".  I have been wanting to try out the new Medium Matchbox Die so what better to use it for than a Advent Calendar. Cheery Lynn Designs has made the matchbox dies in small, medium and large. A nice variety of sizes. I have used six matchboxes on each side giving me a total of twenty-four . I used the Merry Christmas sentiment on the front for my letters. I have placed the Snowflake 5 on each of the other three sides with a red gem in the center.  I used the Alison's Ribbons along the bottom edge.  I did a flower arrangement on the top using the Poinsettia Strip, Gardenia StripBlack Eyed Susan Strip, Holly Lace Flourish, Holly Leaves , Rose Leaf Strip and the Snowflake 5. I know a lot of advent calendar are usually enjoyed by children but what about us chocolate lovers that are grown up. Thus why I did the flower arrangement for a grown-up chocolate lover. I invite you to join the Cheery Lynn Challenge for a chance to win a $20.00 store certificate.
