Hi there crafty friends! I'm so excited to be part of Taheera's  Advent Calendar Extravaganza!

Advent Calendar Extravaganza is -the- festive event of the season! This ‘hop with a twist’ was dreamed up by Taheerah Atchia and features surprise destinations each day! Joining in the fun with Taheerah are over 60 special guests - each serving up some fantastic Christmas inspiration!

I made a card today, kind of following the concept of finding a surprise every day we open the door for each day's calendar. Its a gate fold card, the exterior is very simple,  with a not so simple closing and a hidden message inside.

All the papers are Lawn Fawn and the die cuts for the sentiments are Spellbinders, the inside sentiment is by Stampin Up! (old).
It’s not a party without a prize - and with prizes every day there are several chances to win! Today’s prize is generously supplied by Butterfly Reflections Ink so you’ll definitely want to get your hands on it!

Warm Winter Wishes + Giveaway

Hi crafty friends!
I hope you are enjoying your Holiday Season! I am still in the process of finishing the cards I need to send. But today I'm sharing a special card that I made for the Winter/Holiday-coffee-lovers-blog-hop. 
I'm arriving late to the party, but it's always oh so fun!
So here is my card.

For the background I used a paper I got last Jan in a Simon Says Stamps card kit, the main image is by Lawn Fawn and the die I used to cut the snow bank is also by Lawn Fawn. To finish it up I just added some snowflake sequins. I colored the imaged with Zig clean color real brush markers. To blend the colors I used Wink of Stella and to finish up the cup I covered it with glossy accent.
To celebrate the blog hop and the season I'm giving away a Starbucks gift card.
Thanks for your visit and have a blessed week!

ETA I'm also adding this card to Choux Choux Paper
