Lots of Sparkle at An Oldie But Goodie

 Good  morning. Well we are back from our weekend travels and thoroughly shattered - must be getting too old for it all :-)
Legoland was fabulous - even if the heavens opened - we all got plastic ponchos and looked liked something that had arrived from another planet lol!!!!
The rain was a very good excuse for Grandma (me) to take cover and look after the babies :-)
Then Sunday at Alton Towers the sun shone all day long :-)
Jack and Katy had a blast on all the main rides whilst Grandma & Grandad enjoyed a leisurely stroll with little Lola Arizona.
Thank you to everyone that has popped over to see my posts whilst I've been away - it was great to read all your lovely comments - I hope to catch up with you all over the next few days :-)

Anyways onto to today's share and it is my DT card for An Oldie But Goodie where this fortnight the lovely Tracy would like to see


Our sponsor this fortnight is 
Robyn's Fetish Digital Stamps And More will award either 5 digital stamps or 4 digital stamps 
and 1 paper pack of the winner's choice to the winner of this challenge.

I have used a very neglected lovely Tilda and for my sparkle I decided to use some gorgeous Gold Glamour Dust - so I 'coloured' her dress with a Quickie Glue Pen and then sprinkled it with the Glamour Dust - simples and so sparkly!
The gold swirl cardstock is from Hunkydory - gorgeous quality.

Finishing touches:
Crushed silk ribbon and co-ordinating stitched grosgrain ribbon from stash
My favourite Cuttlebug snowflake die cut from glitter paper

Challenges I would like to enter:

Make it Monday - Always Anything Goes
Stamps R Us - Anything Goes
Christmas Inspirations - Clean & Simple
Totally Tilda - Fit for a Princess

Before I go I would like to share a few of my favourite photos from the weekend:

Oliver and Lola

LOVE this card. I don't know if it's just me, but it looks like a very expensive chocolate bar that is decorated for a gift. It's yummy! Is that weird? HAHAHA...it's gorgeous either way and the pics of the grandkids are precious. :)
Thanks so much for sharing this with us at Make It Monday!

I really like the card, especially the gold and white colour scheme. I also enjoy the glitter on the girl's outfit, adds a special touch to the card.

Gorgeous card Debs, lovin' all the bling! At least you used a stamp that was more than 6 months old - I had such a rush on the night before, grabbed an image out of my basket irrelevant of what it was and hey presto a card - it is in fact a digi stamp OMG I was mortified this morning when a kind blogging friend pointed it out to me!! Glad you had a fab few days away, you certainly have been very busy and I love all the pics. Hugs, Claire x
