A bit of Glitz and Glamour

Hi there,

Well, I have scheduled my post today as I am off deep in the woods with my class of 28 7-8 year olds! We set off yesterday morning to take them on their first residential trip (or sleepover as they like to call it!) to Sherwood Forest to learn about the 'Legend of Robin Hood'. To say they were a little excited would be an understatement, but I bet there were a few tears at bedtime last night (even after hot chocolate and a bedtime story). I will let you know how it went when I get back.

As for crafty things, we have a brand new theme over at the Alphabet Challenge and are up to the letter 'G'. Caz has chosen a great theme for this one ...


So, here's what I came up with for my DT inspiration ...

It's a fairly simple design because I wanted to show off the stamp and the 'glitz'. The backing paper is from my stash and the stamped image was a freebie on a magazine ages ago - she looks so glamorous and stylish, I thought she was perfect for this challenge. I paper pieced her dress and coloured the shawl with a black glitter pen. I also added black glitter around the edge of the image and some gold glitter down the side of the card for an extra bit of glitz.

Why not pop over to the main blog and check out some more inspiration from the design team.
Hugz, Jan xx
