Advent calendar fun!!

 Good Afternoon Peeps!!!

I am sorry I have been a bit quiet this week, I have really been struggling with a nasty virus. I thought I was better for a couple of days and then it came back with double doozey strength so today I am feeling a bit tender but a bit more me too!! he he he!!! :)

I have been locked away in my little crafty garage this morning finishing off my advent calendar for my brothers children. I haven't really seen them since the summer holidays so I wanted to send them a little fun advent.

I used some favour boxes I had left over still from my wedding a few years ago as the boxes and cut some petal envelopes from my walk in my garden cart on my cricut for the doors. The little tags are made with the SU jewellery tag punch and the little handles on the doors are gold coloured split pins.

Here's a few of the doors open of the ones I have already managed to fill up........
I have promised myself not to put sweets in all of them.....:) so there are some festive jingley bells and wooden decorations for the tree too. I just have some more bits to make to pop in and then it will be ready to go. Tonight I am going to work on Mo's advent....I better get it done quick!!!!

I am entering my advent in a few challenges they are.....
craft your passion challenge- Tis the season!
totally papercrafts challenge-christmas!
simply create too challenge-all about christmas

Right then, thats me for today. Off to fetch my little squidgy Mo. I was told this morning as I kissed him goodbye at the school gate we are watching Cars 2 together tonight! sounds perfect to me on a cold windy day, snuggles on the settee, pefick!!!
