December Advent Calendar

Happy December Peeps!  Can you believe it?  Are you ready,or not?  Me neither,but hope to be soon :)

Remember this sneak peak from the other day?  Any guesses as to what they are?

How about now?!  An Advent Calendar has been on my to do list for a couple years now,well not any more!  After looking and looking some more I finally decided to make up my own pattern/version.  Overall I am very happy with how it turned out :)  The only thing I am changing is,the numbers.  The glitter paint I used was hardly visible after it dried :(  So I took it all off,what a chore that was...  So now I need to add numbers back on my little envelopes,but haven't decided what  to use yet.  (will let you know when the decision is made)  Suggestions are Welcome :)

A close-up of the first little envelope,this is before the glitter paint dried.

My advent calendar is going to have little cards in each envelope,with something to do each day :)  I made the cards from gray card stock.  All of the envelopes were made using scraps of christmas fabric! Sweet,right?  Love scrap busters,how about you?

If anyone is interested,and I have time,I might do a tutorial...
