SISTERHOOD OF SNARKY STAMPERS #29 - L is for Leprechauns!


Hello and good morning crafty peeps! We have a new challenge starting at the SISTERHOOD OF SNARKY STAMPERS! The Luck O' the Irish is upon us, so we want to see your St. Paddy's Day cards/projects!! Here's my card:

Here's the inside of my card:

I hope that you didn't fall off your chair because my card is snarkless. It's all right, and I'm ok. Just couldn't bring myself to snark up this adorable little bear. You'll just have to be satisfied with the punny sentiment on the inside. :)

My image is from Bugaboo stamps. I think it was a freebie last year, but this is the first time I've used it. (NBUS!) He's colored with Spectrum Noir markers and die cut from Nesties. The image already had a highlight drawn on the nose, but since it wasn't the side I used for my 'light source', I just colored it in with black, then added a white highlight with a white Gelly Roll pen.The paper is all older stuff from my hoarded stash. (the polka dot paper is dated 2006!) I've added Crystal Stickles to the buckle and the clovers because - glittery!!

 I hope that you get the chance to play along with our St. Paddy's Day challenge at the Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers!
