Advent Calendar Extravaganza with Taheerah Atchia !!

Hello and welcome to Advent Calendar Extravaganza :) I am super excited to be a part of this event which has been giving you tons of inspiration since last 15 days :)

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!

So let me show you what I created... 
I decided to create a  shaker card and a coordinating shaker tag. I wanted to keep the color scheme red and black for the most part to emphasize of the Santa :) 
I stamped, fuzzy cut and colored the Santa images. Diecut all the pieces necessary for the shakers and created my shaker card and tag. I had so much fun making these :)

  56. I have to be completely honest and say I wasn't familiar with your stamps, I must be living under a rock or something! This set is sooooo adorable and I love how you used the black and red to highlight the Santa. That reindeer is mighty pretty as well. Now that I know about you, I obviously need to check into your stamps and products further. Thank you so much for being not only a generous sponsor, but for the besutiful inspiration with this card. I am loving this hop, and you are a prime reason why, finding new (to me) creators and companies to follow and be inspired by.
