Getting Cricky Simply Sunday Challenge! - Joys of the Season

Hi my dear bloggie friends. Hope you are having a wonderful weekend! Today is Sunday which means it is time for a new Simply Sunday Challenge at Getting Cricky! This weeks Simply Sunday Challenge is Joys of the Season. We are creating projects that have to do with the joys of the Season!

I have made two projects for you today!

The first is a picture frame I wrapped and hung on my wall!

This is it hung on my wall! :) Looks cute huh? Yeah my kids think so but they want to open it. I used ribbon I got from Michael's, the tag is cut from Christmas Cheer and Of Course I used Kristal Andrew Winter Wishes stamp set! Be sure to check it out!

For my second project my children and I created an advent calendar! I used tags cut at 4" from Christmas Cheer Cricut Cartridge and I stamped Kristal's Winter Wishes stamps on each card... I took several pictures so you can what they look like all together and close up!!

 I love the way this turned out and now the kids and I can take one down everyday and they know how close we are getting to Christmas!! Sorry for any color issues of blurriness of the pictures... Maybe Santa will be good to me and bring me a new camera!

Here is the Winter Wishes stamp set I used

Both of your projects are so fabulous, Heather! I love the package hanging on the wall - so cute! And that is a great advent calendar! We always had one growing up and I could not wait to open the little door on it each meant Christmas was getting closer! I love how you made this one! :)
