Rachel # 7

Please feel free to take the blinkie from the side-bar  for your blogs.
Now to this month, we are going to do something a little different, as well as our usual challenge we are hosting
a 'Blog Hop'
We would still like you make a card, the theme is 'Open', so you can use any image (including Little Claire) and enter our challenge as usual, leaving a link.  Then blog hop via each Design Team member, where you need to find a letter on their blogs and leave them a comment before you visit the next DT member.  You need to find eight letters, put them together and they will spell out one of our popular stamps.  You then need to email your answer to Gill -, with the title 'Blog Hop Answer' in the title, so that she can enter you into the challenge - please enter the competition ONCE only - thank you.
Here we go, the first letter is  -
