It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas, yay!!!!

Happy Friday folks and I hope you are all well on this most soggy of days here in Bournemouth.

Well as it's Friday there is a new challenge up now on the Polkadoodles Crafting Challenge blog and I am popping in to share my DT make with you all.  The DT this week were given the theme of 'It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas' to work with but as always for all you crafty peeps it's an 'anything goes' theme to enter the challenge and we'd love to have you join us so we can visit all your lovely makes.  

 So what did I make, well I decided I wanted to do something to do with Advent so I've seen these Advent cards about and thought I rather liked the idea so had a little go. Well they are super easy and so cute.  I used a template which Norma kindly shared on her blog here which made it even easier!  I coloured up the beautiful Winnie stamp 'Lighting the Way Lantern' with a mix of copics and spectrum noirs.  All papers were printed from Winnie Winterland download kit and the actual Advent numbers I cut up from one of the papers too.

I've kept this one for myself and she's sitting proudly on my mantlepiece to mark each day of Advent.  

So the Christmas decorating has begun and the house is in turmoil as I literally have boxes and boxes of the things and five trees to put up.  Yep, you did read right I said five, don't do things by halves here at Crimbly!!!!!

I'll pop back later and link up some challenges as work is calling and it's going to be a ploppy day unfortunately.

Take care and happy crafting.
