Christmas Countdown Sign





Good Morning!  

Melisa from Melisa's Crafty Creations here today.  I don't know about you but I can't believe that the holidays are just around the corner.  This year is going by way to fast for me.  I thought it would be fun to make a Count down to Christmas/Winter Break sign. I am absolutely crazy about Snowmen and have them all over my house during the holidays, so I wanted to stick with that theme.  


I bought this chalkboard from Michael's awhile ago and thought it would be perfect for my project.  I bought some paint from Michael's as well and painted it green.  I used the Cherry Red Twine for the inside of my chalkboard.  I also used the Olive Green along with the Cherry Red to hang it.  The snowman is from Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons Snow Peeps Cutting File.   


I used the Snow Faces 1 1/4" for my Snowman's face.  


I have a card to share with you too.  The scalloped circles are from Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons Scalloped Circles Cutting Files.  The watermelon is from PPPR's Watermelon Cutting Files.  The face is from The Cornies Face Assortment.  The twine is Cherry Red from Timeless Twine.  


The sentiment is from the Veggie Sentiments ONE stamp set.  


The Face is from The Cornies Face Assortment.


Thanks for stopping by today.  Don't forget to stop by Peachy Keen's Blog to see what their fabulous Design Team made.

Both your projects do you credit Melisa! The chalk board is a cracking idea and your snowman is perfect. Using that holiday twine to hang it and border it, is just the ticket! Your watermelon card is a hoot! So much fun and the Cornie face is perfect!
