Glitz & Glam

Just before Christmas the lovely Lisa and terrific Tracy sadly left our little design team here at An Oldie But A Goodie which means we are now two people down.  For this reason, Francesca has decided to put out a call for new DT members.  So, if you ever fancied working on a DT or if you already do and are looking for another, please get in touch.  Full details on the Oldie But A Goodie Blog.

Now onto other business and the current challenge, chosen by Claire as;

Glitz & Glam
Remember as well as following the theme in this challenge, you must use something older than 6 months and tell us what it is.

I chose an older stamp of mine by Victoria Case for this one.  I so love this image, and it's ages since I last used her.  She is combined with Basic Grey Little Black Dress papers and some lovely Wild Orchid Craft flowers.  All of these items are over 6 months old.

Now the DT have excelled themselves with this challenge, there are some great creations over on the main blog.  Go check them out then join us in our current challenge.

The prize this time around is a surprise box of crafty goodies.

Sweet Sketch Wednesday - Brilliant sketch 189
Crafts & Me - Something new - ribbon specially bought for this card.
Diva's By Design - Make It Girly
Winter Wonderland - Vintage
Card Crafters Circle - Layers
My Mums Craft Shop - Anything Goes/Lots of layers
Avenue 613 - Kraft
Paper Playtime - Brown

Finally, snow update - think the snow factory was running overtime last night - we have awoken to several inches today, with school buses cancelled and many schools in the area closed.  Luckily for us, Colin doesn't have an exam today so it will be a quiet day in with his books, I hope!  Jx
