Today over at Capture the Moment, [Papertrey], Dawn McVey made a Faux Pocket card. This was the perfect opportunity to make the advent calendar I have been wanting to make. I wanted a pocket one, and the faux made it so much easier to make! Thanks Dawn :)
I used one of my favorite color combos - aqua and red. Are these faux pockets perfect for this or what! I stamped them with PTI Background Basics: Text Style, Polka Dots Basics II and Dot Spot, along with Signature Greetings. The little white tags have different stuff written on them to do [as a family]. We will see if the 18 year old will join in. It sort of like his last Christmas -- he goes off to the Navy in February. While I am sure he will be home for more Christmas', this is the last one of him actually living in our house.
A little close up:
Hard to believe this is the very first advent calendar I have ever made. Shame on me not doing this when my son was a little boy! Do you have littles? Don't make my mistake and let the years get past you. They can't be replaced....
Thanks for stopping by
