Dancing my way....

to Heaven! I have a sneaky love for ballet, and often used to go when I was a nipper with my Mum to the ballet in London..Swan Lake, The Nutcracker, and even Modern Ballet. I hung up my ballet shoes when I discovered horse riding.. much better and no-one could see my two left feet! So when one of my illustrious Creative Team- Sue Jenneys-ArtyJen suggested that she had some stamp designs I might like, I was thrilled to find Ballet dancers with a twist! This is a huge A5 plate of stamps full of images and words, and there is even a background to go with! All will be revealed on Monday for those of you not able to go to Ally Pally. But  I am giving away a FULL set of these gorgeous images and the background too! (now that is a prize!) to one of the lucky people who comment! Love Ballet , love to dance when no-one is looking..lol! Thank you Sue for being our guest stamp designer!

Have a Creative Day!

Ballet stamps how fantastic, just what I'm looking for for a layout of my Grandaughter at her ballet class. Looking forward to Monday as I'm not able to go to Ally Pally this time.

I love ballet - so delicate unlike me. Looking forward to seeing the rest of the plate. Good luck at Ally Pally. Kim x

Fliss said...

This looks very exciting Jennie and makes me think of my younger daughter who's only just given up ballet due to her degree.
Can't wait for Monday either as I can't make it to Ally Pally as both my girls are coming home at the weekend so family stuff in the way.

Oh I do like something different and it certainly seems that you've hit the spot - can't wait to see. When I was a girl and took up ballet I was always being asked by my friends "whats the POINTE" loving ballet, I knew.

I was lucky enough to get to Ally Pally yesterday. I visited the stand several times ... just had to keep going back for more, lol!

Really enjoyed the demos and those stamps are gorgeous.

Nice to chat to you too Jennie. I was the one right near the end who suddenly realised I was in danger of missing my train if I didn't get a shift on.

Hugs
