Silhouette Challenges Ch# 19 "Advent Calendar"

Good Morning!

It's time for another challenge over at Silhouette Challenges. This month is
(Advent Calendar).

Oh dear this had to be a quick make for me as I got my months around the wrong way, not hard for me I know, hence next month's projects is now all ready and waiting! Anyhow this month is all about advent making and I made this lovely large snowman, he is about 18" tall and 9" wide. I made him for the older grandchildren to countdown the days until Christmas but at the same time to help young Harley who is just learning his numbers. 

Isn't he adorable? I used a snowflake brad to hold his carrot nose on, then added some googley eyes and some enamel dots for holly berries. I also change the wording on his hat so that it fit in with the children. And there you go super quick and easy.

A close up of the wording. 
Card Stock - Bazzill
Berries - Enamel Dots
Eyes & Brad - Stash

What a fun way to count down Christmas! I've not ever seen an Advent calendar like this one but I think it's such a great idea! xx
