MMSC27 Holiday Shopper....Shop Til You Drop This Christmas!

Good morning everyone!  Are you ready to kick off your holiday shopping for the season?  Well, ready or not, it's here, so you might as well enjoy it, right? 

I wanted to make my card fun and sort of lighthearted this time to get everyone in the mood for what can sometimes be a more tasking than fun time if you have alot of it to do.  Doesn't she make this look like a fun thing to be doing?  I just love the beautiful and festive packages that she is carrying.  Who wouldn't want to get one of those?

How many of you out there recognize the pink, striped bag?  I had to make this look like the Victoria's Secret bags.....one of my favorite places to shop ; )   I have to say that I was half tempted to make a pair of panties or bra to hang out over the side of the bag. lol....Had to remember that this is to be a holiday card though, so I kept it at a minimum. 

I hope that you will give our sketch a try this week.  We have so much fun every week coming to visit you to see what you come up with for us. 

Congratulations to our Masterpiece and Remarkables this week as well.  All wonderful projects!!

Thank you for visiting me today, and I hope that you all will have a wonderful holiday this year, and my best to those of you that brave the Black Friday crowds at the wee hours of the morning and some of you in the FREEZING cold!!!  I have done that!!  I hope that all of the shopping and pretty packages will put a smile on your loved one's faces!

Carolyn what a fun and lighthearted card. I want to shop where she shops and get all those shiny bags...LOL I will not be shopping much this year since being laid off, because in the past I tend to buy too many baubles for myself...LOL Internet shopping for me!!! Your card is fabulous both inside and out....such creativity abounding in all you designs. Wonderful work Carolyn each and every week to inspire us.

Bear Hugs,

Carolyn, what a sparkling Anya you have made, perfect for the holiday season, but I too won't be doing too much shopping this year either...paying for my son's school comes first!! I love the comment about the bra and panties (tee hee). Your dp is outstanding and the perfect addition to this gorgeous creation, and of course the inside which you always finish so perfectly. Such an inspiration you give us. Thank you!
