The Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers: Challenge #8 - C is for Crap!

Yep, you read that correctly! Crap! As in, "WHY did I buy that crap!" LOL! The Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers want you to dig through your stash and find at least one thing that you just HAD to have, but never used. Here is my card, then I'll explain:

Here is the inside:

It seems like it's been forever since I've made a snarky card! I am home! LOL! And yes, this is being sent out to someone in my family. No fears, she shares the same sarcastic sense of humor with me and will love this!

So, my crap? It's that animal print ribbon, which I've had for at least 7 or 8 years, but never used. (There was a nice film of dust around the cellophane wrap. *Koff, koff*) I thought the paw print border was a nice touch, so I used that too. I found inspiration with this meme:

I may have posted this on my sister's Facebook page for her birthday greeting! Buahahahaha!

The sentiment is computer generated. I doodled around the words, cut them out and inked the edges before adhering with foam squares. Some more ribbon with the birthday sentiment finished the inside.

So, ready to play along? If you are like my teammates and I, you have loads of crap that you haven't used yet! LOL! Now's the time to get that stuff out and make something, and link it up at the Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers! Don't forget to check out what my teammates, and our Guest Designer, Carol, have created for your viewing pleasure! Now go forth and get your craft on!

Have a great day!

How did you ever resist the lure of using this ribbon for so long? Obviously you were waiting for the perfect card inspiration, and this is definitely it. Snarky and crappy, love it!

Carol L said...

I just feel the need to roar now! LOL The ribbon was a great find, and I actually like this card! I think it's that paw print border that sets it apart from the rest of the pack! There's great snarkiness in the sentiment too - a wonderful card for a relative with a good sense of humor :)
