When do you start counting down the days to Christmas? For me it’s usually sometime around the beginning of January. Yes, really! As you know, I love Christmas and I feel so low after the decorations have come down I cheer myself up and start planning the next one. Two pivotal dates in my calendar are July 25th, when I mark Christmas in July and September the 15th when there are just 100 days to go. In addition, because I usually take extended leave around Christmas I also have a mini-countdown of working days left. Today I only have 17 working days to go before I finish for the holidays. I promise you I’m not wishing my days away 🙂
So today I am sharing a mini Christmas countdown that I have made using a fabulous Father Christmas image from The Graphics Fairy.
The base is a little MDF ATC that I covered with red glitter card and trimmed with a silver chenille stem. After sticking Father Christmas behind the board I added red glitter to his and coat and hat, then popped on a little pom-pom.
I’ve added some stickers from my stash and some tiny white jingle bells.
I attached some red candy stripe trim to the back so that he can be hung up.
Thanks for buzzing by.
