Bits of card and what to do with it

Well, I had good intentions to get back to my sewing. alas the rabbit is still only half done. There is a German saying: Der Weg zur Hölle ist mit guten Vorsätzen gepflastert. (The path to hell is paved with good intensions) But I am digressing...
Having made all these lovely cards (you can see them all here ) I found that I had bits of card left, too good to just throw away. So what to do? I pondered and played a bit and then I realised they were just the right size for BOOKMARKS. So that is what I did the last few days. Today I laminated them and added a few to my charity auctions on The rest will make a nice present for when I sell a book. So problem solved.
Just must share this funny incident with the world. I decided to add a little glitter to one of the cards I finished today. I got the glitter pot out, put the glue on the appropriate areas and then dipped the card into the glitter. I shook of all the excess back into the pot and then I took a deep breath and blew to remove a few stray bits of glitter................totally forgetting that the lid was still off the glitter pot. My t-shirt still sparkles and I expect so does my hair.
Here is THE card and a bookmark ore two
