No, not that type of quickie! Get your head out of the gutter! I mean this kind of quickie:

That's right, the SISTERHOOD OF SNARKY STAMPERS challenge you to make a card in 10 minutes or less!!! GAH! This challenge was my cryptonite! It usually takes me at least two hours to make a card. My saving grace was that we are allowing you (and us!) to have everything pre-cut/stamped/colored/etc. before getting down to business. (Thank you baby Jesus for that small miracle!) So, here's what I came up with:

And the inside:

Too soon for Halloween cards? Nnnnaaaaahhhhhh!!! I timed myself, and it took me 8 minutes and 11 seconds to make this. I trim my own card bases, don't use pre-cut ones, so there's some time. Die cut the 'eyes'. Sticking down the letter alphas probably took the longest time. But there you have it, a snarky-artsy-fartsy ghost card! LOL! 

But wait - there's more!

In cleaning up my craft room a bit, I re-discovered this fun pack of quotes, so I had to make another card with one of them:

 and the inside:

Love it when the paper does all the work for you! LOL! This one only took a little over 4 minutes to make! A personal best!!! Woot Woot!! Trimmed the card base, trimmed that perfectly snarky page, stamped the inside sentiment. (even masked off the question mark!) Done!

I hope you get a chance to play along with our quick challenge at the Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers! You know you want to, and hey, there's a crown at stake here! Please be sure to check out what my Sisters, and our newest Queen of Snark - Manuela - have created for your viewing pleasure! Thanks for hanging out, and I hope you have a fantastic day!

  1. Your ghost card is so fun and clever! And your second card is too funny! Best, CG

  3. I love your snarky-artsy-fartsy-halloween card! Holy sheet! It's awesome!! Muahhhh ha ha ha ha

  4. So I really like the first card, but the second? Pure snarky (and QUICK!) genius. :D

  5. OMG, lol, I love the ghost but the second one made me snort coffee. Seriously. lololol!

  6. And I hit enter too fast - not THAT kind of quickie, I can't believe I didn't think of that with my always in the gutter mind :) lol!
