Advent Calendar Extravaganza with Taheerah Atchia

Hello! I'm so excited to be participating today in 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!

Now, on to my project! :) Today's sponsor is one of my *favorites*, Winnie & Walter.  I adore Shay, she is one of the nicest people I've been fortunate enough to "meet" through this hobby, and I love being a part of her stamping family! :)


To create my card, I started by first stamping the Mini Scenery: Merry Berry image in Versamark ink onto coral CS, then heat set the image with clear embossing powder.  I then adhered the embossed panel to a piece of white CS before attaching it to a light gray card base with foam tape.  Next, I die cut my sentiment from silver foil using the In a Word: Noel Cutaway.  To finish up, a strip of aqua CS was adhered to the card front, the sentiment was attached to the card base using foam tape and glue (where needed), then I embellished with yellow enamel dots.


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 Winnie & Walter, 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! Don’t forget to grab the other surprise destinations from Taheerah’s blog and head over to them to leave comments there as well to improve your odds even more! You have until 23:59 EST on 31st December 2016 to enter.

Don’t forget Advent Calendar Extravaganza runs from 1st-25th December inclusive so make sure you visit taheerah-atchia.com every day for fabulous inspiration and amazing prizes every single time! Merry Christmas! :)
