A Year of ATCs? - Day 335

This is my Day 335 of 'My Year of ATCs?'

Today is the day we start opening our advent calendars...

Here is the Advent calendar I put up every year - ever since our 4 children were small - they are grown up now so Kevin and I have to eat the chocolate...

This year my sister and I decided to do Advent calendars for our parents - Mum's is M&S but we put together one for Dad using a Hobbycraft house:

 - so I thought I might make a set of Advent ATCs.

It's time to think about Peace, Joy, Love...

For number 1, I wanted to illustrate Peace...wishing that we can have peace in our world...

Base: green card
First layer: bird cut from old Christmas card.
Embellishments: Gold embossed number 1. Peace cut from old Christmas card matted on green.

Happy Crafting!


  1. Wonderful idea.
    Beautiful bird.
    Looking forward to
    the rest of the month.
    thanks for sharing.

  2. I had not thought about doing advent ATCs or even a advent calendar this year...oh, my! I like this idea! Your peace theme card is very beautiful!
