A Wintery Advent Calendar

Advent Shadow Frame 1 by Clare Charvill JOFY stamps
After a lovely surprise meet up with old friends yesterday we had another surprise last night as Father Christmas sleigh and all called by collecting for the Lions Charity.  Seeing him and hearing the carols has really has put me in the Christmas spirit so I thought I'd share my wintery Advent calendar with you. 

All the elements were stamped in black using JOFY Stamps (I love them) collections 5 & 6 onto smooth white card, watercolour painted with different shades of blue distress inks, and then cut out.  It took quite a while to collect up all the finished pieces and fix them all in place but I loved the end result and really enjoyed putting the project together.  Here's a few more pictures.
