Count Down to Christmas Doodle Pantry Style

Beautiful weather today here. Up in the 60s. We opened the door and windows for a while. I would never guess that I would be doing that in December. Tom didn't have a very good day today. Lots of pain from the surgery yesterday. I am hoping and praying that tomorrow will be better for him.
I had hinted several times about a big project I was working on. I had hoped to post it in November but that didn't happen. I love Advent calendars. I always thought they were fun to use with the kids to get ready for Christmas. So I thought I'd put together a type of count down to Christmas using Doodle Pantry Christmas images. So without further ado, here's the first 5 days of my Countdown to Christmas Doodle Pantry style.

Each image is mounted on an envelope so I can add a Bible verse or a little treat to each day. I used the color versions of the stamp set unless otherwise stated. The first day I used Color French Horn. Sentiment is from the same set. The tags with the numbers on are from an Advent sent that I bought at Hobby Lobby after Christmas one year.

Day 2

I used the set Holly Stag.  Added some embossing and ribbon.

Day 3:
Set used is called Snow Birdie. The mittens were taken off a Christmas package that I received last year.

Day 4:
This set is Christmas Birdie in Color. The sentiment is from the same set. It's difficult to see but under the tag is a paper pieced ribbon.

Day 5:
Holiday Ants Color is the set I used for Day 5. This is one of my favorites. I love the colorful embossed background. Look great in real life!

That's the first five days. Come back tomorrow to check out the next 5 days of the count down. Have a wonderful Sunday!

I'm soooo loving your count down and all your beautiful fun projects. Actually, I'm a little envious because I'm now behind on everything for Christmas due to this icky illness our family has had, BUT the silver lining is all your wonderful cards that can allow me to CAS.
