Good morning! phew, I finally got this finished! I spent most of last evening and this morning on this gorgeous flip top christmas countdown calendar. I'm loving my zutter at the moment, and I am so pleased that I work well with a craft knife, because boy oh boy it has had a workout the last week! all of this calendar is hand cut- except for the sleigh and the tag- both cut with a spellbinders die. The tag has about four layer to stiffen it, and the sleigh I cut 6 of- two paper, 2x acetate and 2x JAC paper, then I glued an acetate base into it- for the the lollies of course LOL!!!!! Flowers are from wild orchid crafts and the ribbon is from craft queen lots of glitter and bling, snowflakes from little hand punches from the cheap shop. The gorgeous paper is from nitwits called giggles and grins too.

Now...if anyone has links to cuttlebug, sizzix, marianne creatables, or any other die manufacturing company can you please put in a request for me???? I would like a plain set of number dies that are bulky and large- say about 2.5" high but affordable too! is that too much to ask LOL???? To acheive these numbers I printed a nitwits print, then using the word art on my computer at (I think) size 36-40 I printed over that, then hand cut them with my knife........yep and I have the callouses on my fingers to prove it too LOL!!!!!

simon says stamp challenge "sparkle and bling"
