Advent Calendar Extravaganza with Taheerah Atchia

Hi All,

I'm participating in the "Advent Calendar Extravaganza" event again this year.
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 ONE HUNDRED special guests - each serving up some fantastic Christmas inspiration! Just like an Advent Calendar, you’ll never know where you’re going to be visiting next until you ‘open the door’!

And that’s not all! With 25 *amazing* sponsors taking part as guests as well, your crafty wish list is bound to get a boost with a chance to win a prize EVERY SINGLE DAY!!

Join in the fun every day at taheerah-atchia.com to see what special surprises await behind the door!

I have two cards to share with you today. The first card is a geometric holiday card.

I used a stamp set from **Pinkfresh Studio**, called Best Things. I stamped the hexagon image repeatedly on a piece of white cardstock. For the card base, I used some grey cardstock from **PTI**. I also used some gold sequins to embellish the card.

The second card has more colors than the first card.
I used several stamp sets from **PTI** for the second card. For the wreath, I used a stamp and die set from **PTI Make It Market** Tinsel & Tags kit. The center image comes from another** PTI Make It Market** kit, All through the House. The sentiment comes from a **PTI** set called Stylish Sentiments: Holiday.
I stamped the center image and the sentiment on a piece of pattern paper from **Pinkfresh** **Studio**'s Life Noted collection. After I arranged the small die cuts to create a wreath, I adhered it to the stamped pattern paper.

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 **Pinkfresh** **Studio** so you’ll definitely want to win!
