Challenge #240 Anything But a Card

~This Weeks Challenge~
Create any project, that is not a card!

To qualify for the prize, be sure to use at least 1 Cricut cut on your project and if it's not obvious, let us know what cartridge you used.

Here is my project:
So sorry that this picture is not the best but I was under two deadlines to meet the FCCB deadline and my 25 days of Christmas deadline. Hopefully, I can keep posting projects. Today's project is the countdown calendar that I am using with my kids this year. It's a wood calendar from SaCrafters and I love it. I painted it and used Graphic 45 Christmas Emporium. The chimney, stockings, ornaments and trees, lamp and sentiment are also from Sa Crafters. I love the chimney. I used my MFT brick stencil and paste and then painted over it with white gesso. Once that all dried, I sprayed a slate colored Prima Bloom spray over it and it came out great.
The only problem that I had was with the boxes. They were cut from heavy chipboard and no matter what I did, I couldn't fold it small enough to fit in the boxes. I couldn't imagine struggling with 24 of these so I cut the boxes with my Artiste cartridge. Inside the boxes are mint Hershey kisses.
I had the busiest weekend ever and am still recovering. We went to a special Gingerbread event, had ballet and basketball practice and game, tumbling, a birthday party and a Christmas show that the kids sang in all in one weekend! Great fun but kind of glad to be at work to rest. Ha! That's not true because I have so much clean up and end of the semester stuff to do but at least it's reasonably quiet most of the day.
Anyway, visit me tomorrow when I will (hopefully) have another project to share with you all.
