Taheerah brings together a huge number of people in the cardmaking world, including lots of awesome sponsors to make a fun journey through to Christmas.

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’!

Join in the fun every day at to see what special surprises await behind the door!

Today's sponsor is Lawn Fawn and I decided that I needed some new Lawn Fawn Christmas goodness (not that I need an excuse for new stamping goodies). I went searching for those cute Christmas penguins but they were very, very elusive (sold out everywhere) and so I went back to my wishlist and discovered that these gorgeous little Winter Sparrows were back in stock (you would not believe the number of times I've tried to buy these cuties). Yay! I think you'll be able to tell that I've had fun making these cards. This year is going to be all about singing sparrows as I send out my (very late) Christmas cards.
I used Winter Sparrows stamps and dies combined with Outside In Stitched Rectangles dies and added a little Copic colouring.

Patterned paper is Stampin' Up!

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 Lawn Fawn so you’ll definitely want to win! Simply leave a comment on this post - then head back to and leave a comment there too! You must leave a comment on Taheerah’s blog as well as mine in order to be eligible to win!
