Woooo Hoooo!!!! 24 Days To Go!!! Advent Countdown Chalkboard

Good Morning. Can you believe that it's the first day of advent??? No me neither - you just know that one blink and it's going to be Christmas Eve! :D Today sees the start of Crafty Ribbons Christmas Event which can only mean one thing...... lots of lovely inspiration and prizes each and every day! To enter simply pop across and enter your name in Mr Linky.

So to help keep us all on track I've designed this Christmas Themed Chalkboard. I've decided to use mine as a countdown calendar, until the big day when it will become a "Mum's Kitchen's Closed" sign!

I found the chalkboard in the poundstore and have used elements from Studio 12 Picknix Collection 2 - Gingerbread Twist to decorate it (and yes everything was handcut - sigh Santie I've been a real good girl won't you please deliver me a Cameo Silhouette???). The gorgeous gold edged organza ribbon is of course from Crafty Ribbons. To finish I've added Rock Candy Stickles, Star Dust Stickles and of course Glossy Accents.

Thanks for stopping by today
