Let's go Shopping

Here I am with my first Christmas card for 2012. It's my challenge at Winter Wonderland and I have chosen the theme of Let's Go Shopping. We have a wonderful new sponsor who will be sponsoring us the first week of every month, and that is Crafter's Companion, woo hoo, with a very generous £10 voucher. If you have been admiring my sneak peeks of the new Strawberry Kisses range then you'd better join in the challenge. You don't have to make a Christmas card as we don't start our Christmas challenges until mid Feb but if you want to get ahead like me then you can choose to make a Christmas card. AS long as you follow the theme we don;t mind what you make. I have chosen one of the cute SWALK range from Crafter's Companion teamed with Cosy Christmas papers free from a mag.I added lots of glitter to the fur on the image and used an MS simple scallop punch. The hinge was made from a Spellbinder label die and sanded Core'dinations. I saw this idea on someone's blog, I think it was Rebekah.

I used the sketch over at Sunday Sketch & Stash and would like to enter this into the Christmas challenge at Dream Valley. I'll be back later with another card to share with you.

Don't forget to watch Create and Craft for the Strawberry Kisses launch today at 12 noon.
