A bit of glitter and lace - Whiff of Joy challenge Sketch + Oldie but a Goodie-Glitter

Good morning everyone, wow how cold is it I think I have frost bite in my extremities...bbbbbrrrrrrr....I was having a rummage through my stamps and realised how many neglected ones I have and thought I really should start reusing them if I can so this Winter 2009 stamp got an airing this time, I was one of those kids that had to have every toy in bed with me in case they got lonely or felt left out, my Mum used to come in to my room and couldn't see me for toys lol, she said there was a few times she had to have a rummage just in case, but these stamps have been out of sight thank goodness or there would be a card every week with dozens of stamps on...there's a fairly new challenge which encourages you to use your stamps that are at least six months old called Oldie but a Goodie and their challenge this week is Glitter so Im entering this card for it, its also using the Whiff of Joy challenge sketch too...the paper is from the Basicgrey Figgy Pudding range and how amazing is that glittery ribbon, I bought it at the NEC just couldn't resist that lush chocolate glittery stuff, the photo really doesn't do it justice...I also used some fabulously thick latte coloured lace and a few glittery snowflakes to finish...I'm off back to my Dads today to hopefully finish the decorating, hes chuffed to bits with it but I have this sneaky feeling that last time he was having a look round to see which room I could do next lol...have a fantastic day everyone and keep your bits nice and warm

Hi Mina,
Love the image and your paper and ribbon is totally scrummy love the sparkle....Katy use to be the same with all of her teddies,each had a name and it was a major operation to get them all in bed with her at nightand even worst to get them all out when she was a sleep...Awww how sweet those days all I get now is the hormones..lol..Good luck with the decorating...
