It's Everywhere Grrrrrr

Last night I made a little card to say thank you to a very special lady.  And I decided to use Glamour Dust.  A lot of Glamour Dust.
Anyone who has used this in anger will know just how far the pesky stuff will travel.  I was wearing it, on my trousers, my jumper, my shoes, my squirrely fur ...... and it doesn't wash off.  Ever. 
I am now sparkling in places a woman of my age should not be sparkling!  Still, that will be entertainment for my colleagues who will, no doubt, gleefully tell me about it, as if I didn't know.
Anyhoo, here is the culprit

Ingredients for this little rascal are
Bristol Board scored and folded into an unequal three
Die-namies dies for the aperture (love that shape)
One of the LOTV Present Trio Bears
Painted in Distress Inks (ReInkers)
Scattered Straw, Tea Dye, Walnut Stain, Tattered Rose, Tumbled Glass
Paper from Nitwits/LOTV Petal Fresh pad
Sentiment from LOTV A Little Message
Super cute little flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts
Thanks border punch by Martha Stewart

And two challenges:

Have yourselves a very happy Friday - it is nearly the weekend!!

Hugs, Sxx

You make me chuckle, but it does say on the bottle "for use on the body ... etc" HAHAHA. Love the card with the super-cute image and all the sparkle, I think it could have used more lol.

Tanya said...

Hehe, I just got my first bottle of Glamour Dust the other day, so I've been sparkling ever since, if I was a Twilight fan I could use it as some sort of weird tribute to the movies, but I'm not. So people just think I am, which is even worse haha!

Your card is fab Squirrel, I love the "thanks" border and the little window :)
