Add Some Sparkle at Oldie But A Goodie

Good Morning my lovely blog friends this is a scheduled post as my life has gone a little bit mental during the peak holiday season and add to that I'm 50 today and having a party tonight - I don't know if I'm coming or going!!
It's time for a new challenge over at 
before I go into that I'd like to thank everyone who entered the last challenge, we had some fabulous entries, don't forget to check the main challenge blog to see if you were a winner.

This week my lovely blog friend Tracy has set the theme, and she wants to see
Lots Of Sparkle
So grab the glittler and bring on the bling
We are sponsored this week by
again check the challenge blog for all the details of this weeks fab prize
This image was coloured in so long ago, I'd never even heard of a Copic pen! Just plain old colouring pencils. It's another of my many unused Stampin Bella images and the papers are DCWV. You can't see it very well in this picture but the ribbon is glitter and very very sparkly in real life!
Remember to be in with a chance of winning 
You must use a rubber stamp (not a digi) and it must be at least 6 months old

Well thats about it from me as I have to go back to work till about 3am! Please forgive me for not getting around to visiting you, our season will be over soon and I will have lots of time to make it up to you all!
Many thanks for looking and to those that do for commenting
