Advent ATC Set

I thought I would share with you an Advent Calendar I made last year in case you haven't seen it.  After all, Christmas is all about Emmanuel, God with Us.  It is a mixed media piece made up of twenty five Artist Trading Cards, one for each day of December until Christmas. Each ATC has a symbol (like Jesse tree symbols) for a bible character and story which can be read and reflected on for the day and the ATC put in it's place until the whole picture comes together on Christmas Day.
