Challenge # 170 - Shopping

Electra here.  Only 39 days left until Christmas.  
Have you finished your shopping yet?
Or do you shop?
Maybe you don't even celebrate Christmas?
But I'll bet you shop.
If just for food.
And clothes.
And maybe the odd DVD.  lol

Our theme for Challenge #170 is
There are oodles of interpretations of this theme, doncha know.
Birthday (gifts)
A gift card holder
Gift tags
Heck, you can even give us your grocery list. (as long as it's artsy)
This will get you in the mood:
I was wandering around the 'Net
("blurfing", we call it in Opusville) 
and I was inspired to create this LO for no particular reason at all...
(Check out the ad in the lower left, it's a riot!)

Let's see what the other Poobahs have been up to... 
Deena here:  we spent the whole evening on Saturday shopping at our mall (there was an after hours fundraiser and we shopped along with thousands of other people to get a jump on the Christmas season...but didn't buy much as it was just too crazy busy)...but just thinking about Christmas brought this card to mind:

so I made a dozen of them....

Rosemary here and I admit that I am pretty good about picking things up along the entire year that I think would make good presents.  But my nieces and nephews are getting to the age where they don't want me to buy something - they want a gift card.
So, I made a Christmas card with a special stocking inside that holds a gift card treat! 
It isn't as much fun as wrapping a toy but does jazz it up a bit! 

You have until the end of Saturday 16 November to join in with your fabulous creation. Add your blog post address to Mr Linky below.

If you would like to join in with a previous challenge we've set (life happens and lateness is absolutely fine, we don't mind a bit) just add your blog post address to Mr Linky below. Please make sure your blog post refers to the previous challenge you are entering so we don't get confused.  

We look forward to visiting you! This is a Blog Hop!!!
