Good Morning & Happy Sunday Stamping Friends!!!!!

I'm here with my Design Team creation for Crafting When We Can & we want to see your calendars/countdowns for Christmas!!!  This challenge will be a month long to give us time with our families (most of my Design Teams are on break) so you'll have plenty of time to show us your work!  I decided to be clever & use some designer paper from my stash that highlights the words "On the first day of Christmas" and designed my card around that feature.  To see what the rest of the Design Team created, please check out our blog & while you're there; read up on our rules so you can play along with us!  I can't wait to see your wonderful works of art....have fun & happy stamping everyone!!!!!
