It's shiny, sparkly allure adds that special something (it's the must have accessory of glamour girls and party girls) but it is soooo challenging to work with. It flits and flies around, sticks to my waxy hands and disappears with a gentle wipe of linseed oil. This is a bit of what I've been up to the past few days. All of the bitties with stripes or words are only 2.5"x3.5" ( I'm loving the new downsized block) and all of the Glamour and Party Girls have golden hearts in honor of Valentines Day. I've got lots more in the works here and will post again tomorrow but right now my little guy is calling....have a great night!
