I have used **Love To Shop** which you will find  here. 
The challenge will run until 2nd February and the winner will receive 3 images of their choice from the store
Please make sure you stop by the blog to check out the rest of the talented Dressy Girls creations. 

Now as I said earlier we are also having a blog hop for this challenge, two lucky winners will receive 2 images of their choice from the store.  In order to be in on a chance of winning you have to visit every blog on the hop list and leave a comment by the date shown below. Two winners will be picked at Random by two of the Dressy Girls on Wednesday 22nd January . We know we have quite a few Dressy girls, so we have spread the hop over a week to give you all plenty of time to hop along. 

If you have been following the hop list you have arrived here from **Christine R's blog** 
Here is the hopping list so you don't get lost along the way. 
Good luck on the hop and make sure you check out the blog for the winners & all the challenge details.
