Welcome welcome! It's time for another fun challenge at the SISTERHOOD OF SNARKY STAMPERS! K is for KISS: whether you finish that with 'Me" or "My A$$" is entirely up to you! LOL! I actually went the sweet route this time around. (Shocking, I know. My apologies for making you fall out of your chair. Now sit back in it. *wink*) I think I redeemed myself with googly eyes. I hope. Here, check it:

 Here's the inside:

I own exactly one stamp that says Happy V-day, so you'll be seeing this often on my cards this time of year. The back panel was made by inking up an embossing folder with Spun Sugar & Worn Lipstick DI, spritzed with water, and then the die cut panel layed down in the mess. It came out pretty cool, I think. My frog prince is paper pieced, and I used some Spectrum Noir markers to add shading on his body and crown, as well as coloring the mouth. The crown has Diamond Stickles on it, but again with my crack photography skillz, it doesn't show up. And there they are, the googly eyes. I stamped the hearts with Spun Sugar DI, then doodled around them so they showed up better. 

Ready to play along? Of course you are! Just link up your card or project at the Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers so we can admire your genius! While there, please do check out what my Sistahs, and our newest Guest Designer - Dotty Jo - have created for your viewing pleasure, and leave them some bloggy love! Thanks for visiting. Now go forth and get your craft on!
