Hello snarky peeps and good morning to you all! We have a new challenge starting today at the SISTERHOOD OF SNARKY STAMPERS, and it's all about caffeine! Coffee, tea, Mountain Dew, Monster Energy drinks - if it has caffeine in it, we want to see it! Here's my contribution:

 and the inside:

I used a recycled thank you note for my card. The 'I have issues' card is, I think, one of those Project Life cards. There's a thank you note on the back side from Cassie, the owner of Paper Issues stamps. I saved this because I knew it would find a home on a card eventually. It did. 

I stamped the coffee rings on the card base then added the smaller panels all wonky like. I am not a coffee drinker, but a tea drinker. But I love the fact that the sentiment has the word wine in it, something that I definitely drink, and well, there ya go. The gal and the sentiment are NBUS items that I've bought earlier this year, and am just now inking them up. Sad, I know. Darnell's bowl of NBUS has nothing on the amount of craft supplies I own that have never been used. Again, so so sad. 

Ready to get your caffeine high on and play along? Sure you are! Just link up at the Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers so we can see what your caffeine high made you create! While there, please do check out the blogs of my Sistahs and our newest Guest Designer, Michelle, and leave some bloggy lovin. Thanks for visiting!

  4. OMGosh! this card is too funny!! Who thinks up these hysterical sentiments!?


  5. Good to have you with us at Naughty or Nice! Jo x

  6. I want that sentiment!!! Even though like you, I am more of a tea drinker. Love the wonky panels and the groovy colours! And NBUS is not sad — just means lots of stuff to still play with for the first time! And... glad you linked this up over at Naughty or Nice!

  7. Great sentiment and your card is awesome.

  8. Love this, the sentiment is brilliant (although like you I'm a tea girl) and the retro look just perfect

  9. A really cool and fun design Chris, love the sentiment although I'd probably give the wine a miss...great combination of colours together too! :) Donna ♥ x

  10. I have to get this stamp set for my sister's next card!!! Love the card!!!

  11. Great sentiment(s). Love the both. Love the image as well.

  12. I give you A+ for not only using your NBUS, but for being so clever with your upcycling, too, Chris! And I agree that this card is especially fabulous because it has the word "wine" on it!! Thank you so much for playing in my NBUS Challenge #7! Hugs, Darnell (Like that bowl is ALL I have! Oh, hahahahahahahahaha!!)

  13. Omgosh, this makes me laugh! I LOVE that retro vintage image on the "I have issues" journaling card! That is brilliant! And LOVE the sentiment, too. The coffee rings are perfect for the background. Totally nailed it, my friend!

  14. So funny! I love your sense of humor! The card is pretty great too! Thanks for joining us at Naughty or Nice! Cyndi, DT
