Hi friends!  It's Wendy Sue here with you today - and I am excited to be invited back today to share my latest little Christmas project.  I, like all of you, just about fell off my chair with excitement when I heard about the Doodlebug Silhouette shapes - so you can bet I was absolutely thrilled to be asked to share a project featuring one of my favorite shapes!  It took me a while to narrow down my list of ideas and focus on just one to share with you today - so I hope I chose wisely!  I'm sharing my Christmas countdown!

I used the "Santa in Airplane" Silhouette Cut File to create this fun countdown calendar!

Of course, I used the "Here Comes Santa Claus" papers and embellishments to dress up this cute Santa & Plane!

Instead of cutting out the banner flying behind the plane, I opted to cut out 25 little banner flags, and the numbers 1 - 25.  I embellished each little flag, then clipped them onto a long piece of chunky twine with miscellaneous coordinating clips.

I love the idea of Santa flying around, watching the kids to make sure they are being NICE (not naughty) each day until Christmas arrives.  Every night, we can unclip one of the numbers until the big day finally arrives!  It would also be fun to make this into a type of advent calendar by writing an activity on the back of each number.  I may have to add some fun activity ideas to my countdown before December arrives.

In the meantime, I'm counting down the days until I can hang this cute Santa up on the wall to stay!
