Great card. I soooo love that stamp . The papers are great too (those one are my fav out of the pack), I'm still using the 12x12 pack i won last year of these.

Aaagh, what a lovely stamp very cute. It looks like something out of the Hansel and Gretel does't it? great colours too. Nice that you got to go shopping with your Mum. good to have a little reatil therapy too :D
I never get the chance to do that, and defo not with Mum any more - I don't think she could handle a shopping trip too well :(
Christmas shopping - am just glad I don't have too much of it because other than what I have made, I have done zilcho. Time for myself - hysterical laughter ensues.....

I don't have much shopping left to do and like Chrissie I don't do shopping with my mum anymore, she is too poorly for this now.
