Mirror mirror on the wall - Sugar Nellie DT

Good morning everyone, before I went away I was having a chat about holidays with my Dad and he told me a story which I had forgotten about...my Mum and Dad were great traveller (my Dad still is) despite my Dad being disabled and walking with two sticks, they were going to Vegas and were offered an upgrade to first class but because they would have had to climb stairs they asked that a young honeymoon couple behind them in the queue get it instead, the couple thanked them and they got chatting when they arrived in Vegas and even asked to see my Dads video camera as he was thinking of buying one...about 4 days into their trip my Mum and Dad arrived back in their hotel to find the local sheriffs deputies waiting to see them, they all went into the office, my poor Mum nearly had a heart attack because she though there was something badly wrong at home, they were told a couple had accused them of stealing their video camera...can you believe it...thank goodness they had footage on the camera from Christmas so were able to show they had had it for a long time and my Mum even had her receipt (see you know where I get it from now lol)...the sheriff apologised and promptly went back to the couple to arrest then for making a false statement...how nasty was that to take a really nice gesture from an elderly couple and do that to them...it makes me so mad even to think of it...right my card for today is for the Sugar Nellie DT and using this gorgeous Homegrown Manga image Mirror Mirror, I meant to gloss the mirror but oops went clean out my mind...I coloured her with distress inks and this lush sparkly paper is from Making Memories flutter range and is called Glitter stripe flutter, I made a rosette with some lush pink, green and orange ribbons and finished with a button...have a wonderful day everyone

Yes thats sounds about right, those two obviously though it was good way of getting a free camera, but luckily your parents were ahead of them and caught them red handed, well done them. with hugs Shirleyxxxx

Hi Mina, that's one little beauty of a card, I love the way you've brought it to life with your colour choice of ribbons, fab:0)
I have real trouble understanding some people, what makes them so evil? To return a kind deed with such an awful accusation, I can't imagine how worried your M&D were. Thank heavens they had that filmed evidence. OOh it makes me mad just to think about it.
Hope you're having a lovely holiday:0) xxx
