Good morning all, happy Saturday to you my dear friends.  Here in Squirrel's World it has been a lazy morning so far, and there is the scent of Deep Heat in the air.  Oh how I hate that smell, it permeates everything.  Toad has been rubbing it into his Superhero shoulder injury again - I've told him that he needs to see the doc after this length of time (anything to stop him using the stuff) and get it checked properly.  But will he listen?  Don't be daft, he's a man!

Earlier in the week I was accused of passing on an earworm with my little mouse card on Wednesday.  Do you have one that annoys you on a regular basis? Sometimes it can be the tiniest thing that starts them, a smell, a colour, a sound.  Every time I see a certain brand of stamp mine starts up.  I used to like the song but after many months I am starting to feel a bit cross about it.  But I love the stamps that trigger it, so it's a bit of a trade off.

All together now "Uptown girl, she's been living in her uptown world....."

Loving these Uptown Girl stamps from Stamping Bella (new delivery arrived this morning, yum)
This particular UG is Faith The Fairy
Painted with Distress Inks (ReInkers)
The sentiment comes with the stamp
Matting layer is from a pad of First Edition papers

And that's it, ultra CAS today, but sometimes it just suits the image to do that.

Have a busy craft day lined up with a lot of DT work to get done so I'm off to get inky.

Have a fabulous weekend
Hugs, Squirrel xx

I love this card Squirrel. Gorgeous. Funny, I've also shared an UG this morning too.

Altogether now.....

Mary J said...

lol!!! I love that song but sure to hate it later when it won't leave my head - thanks for that Squirrel, lol!!

Gorgeous pretty card!

Kathyk said...

SMASHING CAS card today - hope hubby's shoulder soon improves. What a shame we don't have "vanishing" scent muscle rub here? They do in the U.S.!


Annette said...

Beautiful image, I don't have any of those UG stamps but might have to rectify that! She's lovely.

And yes, I'm singing the song now!

Thanks for that! :0)

A lovely "Uptown Girl" Squirrel, and how right you are, "that" song is now going around in my head and worse than that I can visualise the video as well...both of them!! xx

fab card hun as always, my son uses deep heat , I found some rosemary and vanilla deep heat cream which smells much better and my son says is actually better than traditional deep heat, they also do it as a bath additive too and it smells better too. I got it from Asda but presume they sell it elsewhere too.

Marianne's Craftroom said...

She is gorgeous and love that sentiment. I have been having deep heat on my back at the mo, know what you mean about the smell. Also the song, thanks singing Billy Joel now xx

Faith A said...

Love your card, but would do wouldn't I? with me dressed as a fairy! LOL.

Jennifer said...

This is gorgeous, Squirrel. I so love the soft colouring. Yes, you've started something...the song is humming in my head as I write this (probably will for the rest of the day too!).

I hope Toad has something done about his shoulder...I had a cortisone injection into my shoulder joint 16 months ago (didn't feel a thing), and the relief was incredible.

P.S. I have always been a tad strange...I love the smell of Deep Heat.

Are people cross with you now for giving them that ear worm? My ear hurts too much for me to get hooked into it.... which is sad because maybe a worm could make it feel better. I love this sweet card and the hint of polkie dot paper in the background.
