Advent Calendar Extravaganza with Taheerah Atchia

Hello friends and welcome to day 22 of this fantastic Advent Calendar extravaganza! I am so happy to be part of this great event and one of the Guest Designers.



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 over 60 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 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 wait behind the door!
So this is the project I created! A very easy card!! We all need easy cards, especially when your time is running out (like mine)
I used the Joy Die, cut it in Gold and Red Cane Shimmer Cardstock, then I glued them together leaving a tiny piece off to show the under color die-cut.
I added gold mist to a piece of cream cardstock, glued the die cut there and added a twine bow and 3 bells, the jingle jingle sound is lovely!!
