Countdown to Christmas

Good morning everyone, a chilly one here today.  I've got a couple of days off work now so hoping to get some Christmas shopping finished.  The only problem is I haven't got a clue what everyone wants!!

Last year I saw a few of these countdown cards and the lovely Angie sent me a link to the tutorial
http://www.stempeleinmaleins.blogspot.com/2009/11/christmas-countdown.html


I 'found' the calendar wheel in my stash, don't know when or where I got it but there is a free print on the tutorial if you need it.

What a super idea & I love the way you've used the red to draw the eye to the eyelet for the date.
