Advent Calendar

Hi all my crafty friend!  I have an advent calendar for you tonight.  My SU demonstrator got advents calendars for those of us who wanted one and of course I was on that wagon right away. lol  Any way it is a wooden base and chipboard boxes.  I inked my wood with Vintage Photo distress ink and then added my paper.  I then used my Cricut carts, French Manor for the window, Christmas Solution for the reindeer and santa, and the swag in the window, George Basic Shapes and More for the moon and Winder Woodland for the trees.  I used a mix of Christmas papers for the boxes and inked with with the Vintage Photo distress ink also.  The chipboard numbers came with the advent calendar and I just used stickles on the bare chipboard.  I think that covers it. lol  Hope you like my advent calendar!
