Hello snarky peeps and welcome!
It's time for one of our favorite challenges
F is for F Words!

Felines, fire, fabric, etc. The possibilities are endless.
Me? You guessed it. I went for my favorite cuss word:


You've been warned.



Yes, I do realize that only after I stamped all those words, that
I probably should have placed them lower on the panel so
that they'd look like they were coming out of her mouth
instead of her forehead. LOL!
Even though the lady stamp is called Banksy Wall Singer, to me she sort of
looks like Frida Kahlo screaming, so I'm adding that to my F list!

I hope that you'll join us for our F Word challenge this fortnight at the
Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers! Go ahead and let your
freak flag fly! As always, snark is never mandatory to play along.

It's time for the new challenge at the
For the next two weeks, we'd like to see your
underwater creations!
Here's what I came up with:


I used a new (to me) die cut plate that cuts an underwater
scene. Some blue ink blended DP serves as my watery backdrop.
The three fish cut outs I glued in the middle. I gave my
mermaid silhouettes some glam with gilding flakes, then added some
second generation bubble stamps at the top, and a few 
shells to finish the front.


 A simple sentiment finishes the inside.

these were done!

When is a snarky sentiment not snarky?

 When you can make a non-snarky card!
Hi there, and welcome.
Yes, I've used a sentiment from one of my new
and created this:

(This post contains affiliate links, at no additional cost to you!)


I even made a one layer card! Who am I!?
I started by stamping the sandcastle from the
Beach Vibes stamp set and masking it. I blended the beach, water and
sky with a few inks. After removing the mask, I colored
the sandcastle with Spectrum Noir markers. Waves were added with a 
white Gelly Roll pen, the sentiment was stamped, and this 
card was done!


I'm so ready to head to the beach. How about you?

Underwater birthday

 Hello and welcome!
Just popping in with a card I made for
the current AAA Birthday #35 - Under the Sea challenge:


Here's the inside:

The background was made by blending kraft and a couple blue inks onto
white card stock. I ripped some scrap paper to use as masks for where the sandy bottom
and the ocean meet. This was matted using a much-neglected wave punch, then
adhered to a pale blue card base. I stamped multiples of all the undersea critters 
and foliage, colored and die cut. Once everything was glued in place, 
I stamped the sentiment and another one on the inside.
I feel like it's been forever since I've colored anything, so it was
good to use my markers again. 💗

That's it for now. Thanks for visiting, and I hope you have a good day!
