Shop 'Til You Drop!

Good morning everyone,
It's Thursday again, so it's time for another Crafty Little Fairies challenge, and this week it's the turn of the Pink Fairies to host the challenge.

Thanks so much to everyone who entered last week's challenge - we always love looking at your fabulous entries .. don't forget to check the challenge blog to see if you have won last week's prize.

This week our challenge theme is


and we are very pleased to be sponsored  by  Delicious Doodles

who are kindly offering 4 digis of the winner's choice.

Please remember that in order to be eligible for our prize you must use stamping (rubber or digi) as the main focus of your project.

Well I honestly don't know where the past fortnight has gone to, as this is the first card I have managed to make in that time. I'm definitely not fitting in nearly as much crafting as I used to ... but I'm trying to be kind to myself and not put myself under too much pressure - after all crafting is supposed to be fun!!

Personally I definitely think shopping is fun if  I'm in the mood for it, so I thought this was a really sweet challenge. Here's what I did - do check out the main challenge  blog for some fabulous inspiration from the rest of the DT.

Admittedly I don't have many stamp that fit this theme, so this one sprang fairly quickly to mind!  I may have had this stamp a long time, but I still think it's pretty cute!

Stamps: LotV "Dropping the shopping!" and "Christmas sentiment tags";
Media: Promarkers and Flexmarkers; image decorated with glimmer dust;
Papers: Wild Rose Studio "Annabelle's Christmas" (free with craft magazine);
Supplies: flowers and pearls from Wild Orchid Crafts; ribbon from my stash;
Tools: large classic circle and lacy circle nestabilities; Leone Em "Ash Branch" leaf die; Cuttlebug "Snowflakes" embossing folder.
