Advent Calendar Extravaganza with Taheerah Atchia

Hello and welcome! Today I am excited to be one of the stops of Taheerah Atchia'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 to the card I made for today!


Because today's sponsor is Winnie & Walter, I chose to use a cute WW set for my card. The background was stamped with an old set I had in my stash, I am sorry I don't remember the company. Afterwards, I stamped the little snowman from Season's Tweetings with Evelin T Designs onto white cardstock, colored it with Copics, fussy-cut it and adhered it to the panel. Now I stamped the stars and the sentiment and adhered the panel to the card base. Finally, I added wood veneer stars.


Love my Winnie & Walter sets! If you love them, too, today is also a prize up for grabs! Here is what Taheerah says about it:

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 2017 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!
