Good advice

While jogging around the blogging world the other day, I read some good advice from Jen Wills... "use that stash of ready-made embellies already!!" I'm paraphrasing, of course =]

Well, much to my delight, Jen is the Muse for the next Muse challenge - their 74th!!!  So, Jen, I'm following your lead!!

 
Wish you could see this little guy better... he's all sparkly and poofy!  [is that a word? =] I also used a circle and some left-over waves, die-cut with MFT dies, that I colored with Hero Arts soft pool ink. 
 
Inside sentiment:  "Just wanted to say you are ageing swimmingly!"

Poofy is definitely a word! I use it all the time. We also use "nerdles/nerdle" in our family....it means teeny tiny bits of lint, crumbs, or other undefinable stuff! Now, as to your card...pure brilliance. LOVE this. It just makes me smile. Smiling at a card is a really good thing in my book. Very cool! Pretty sure you've got a winner here!! Bev
