All That Glitters

Hi All,
Back from holidays and now could do with another one. Has been a bit of
a madhouse since we have been back.
 
We had a week in Jersey, which was very nice but not a lot to do there!
The Hotel was great, as the staff, room and food was brilliant.
It even had a swimming pool!
 
I think that will be the last time I fly. It was the first time since I had
my knee replacement. I set the security alarm off as I knew I would
but I was not ready for the awful way I was searched!! 
The woman even put her hand up inside my bra!!!!!!
Then around the top of my pants!! I felt violated.
I think this is taking security just a little too far.
 
Fortunately, the lady at Jersey airport did not go that far.
 
We at least had a lovely few days in Suffolk the
second week, visiting a friend.
 
We have a new challenge at Winter Wonderland staring today.
 
Our sponsor is:
 
 
And the prize is 2 Digis for the winner.
 
I must say that I would not know which ones to choose.
They are right at the top of my favourite Digi list!!
 
 
The theme for this challenge is
All That Glitters.
 
I Just adore this image and loved colouring it.
I know I will use it quite a lot this Christmas. Great for any age group.
 
 
I coloured her with Copics and added Stickles to her wings, dress,
parcels, stars and baubles.
The papers are from centuries ago! Who knows where they are from.
 
 
It's now over to you, to have some fun with the glitter.
Don't cover the dog or cat with it though!!
For more inspiration, our design team magicians,
 have conjured up some stunning cards for you to see.
 
Don't forget to visit the shop here and drool over the gorgeous images.
 
Thanks for stopping by and your lovely messages are truly treasured.
 
Hugs,
Carolxx

Lovely glittery card Carol! I love Jersey - we were due to go next week but obviously had to cancel it with Roy being so ill. I'm hoping we can rebook when he's recovered. I always set the alarms off and they told me when it happened once that it was random as I had removed everything metal before I went through!
