SISTERHOOD OF SNARKY STAMPERS #100 N is for Naughty Christmas

Would you look at that? It's our 100th challenge at the
How fitting that our annual Naughty Christmas challenge 
is the lucky one for this historic event!

That's right, we want to see how crass, how rude, how risque'
you can get with your Christmas cards!
Let your freak flag fly!
(and the swear words too!)

Yes, mine does have swear words in it,
so if you have any little ones about and
don't want them to learn a new bad word,
you should probably send them out of the room now.

Ok, you've been warned.

Here's my card.
It seems rather innocent at first, but....

...then the inside:

This card is extremely CAS for me, and thanks to some alpha stickers and a computer
generated sentiment, it was completed pretty fast too.

So, do you need to make any last minute Christmas cards? Why not
add a rude sentiment, an F-bomb, or a naughty Santa and
link up at the Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers?! We'd love
to see what you come up with! For more naughty goodness, do check out
what my Sistahs and our Guest Designer, Sharon, have created
for your viewing pleasure. Heads up: don't be drinking or eating
when reading their cards. Just sayin'

Edna and my Sisters will be taking a much needed break to spend time with our
loved ones, (a.k.a. our favorite alcoholic beverages), but will be back with
 all new challenges starting January 13th.

Until then, I wish you a very Merry Christmas,
and all the best for 2018!

Of course, I'd like to enter this at the Naughty Or Nice challenge #46

Accessories: MAMBI - Dear Santa stickers; computer & printer (rest of sentiment computer generated)

SHOPPING OUR STASH #334 Gah!! PINK!! - A Tribute to Leslie

Hello crafty friends and welcome!
Our new challenge at 
starts today, and we are paying tribute to our
dear friend, Leslie Hanna. I'm sure most of you
are aware that she passed away suddenly two years ago
on Christmas day. If you knew Leslie, she hated the color pink.
On those rare occasions that she used it on her cards, she
always referred to it as 'Gah! PINK!'
So in honor of Leslie,
the SOS Crew challenge you to make a card or project
using Gah! PINK! predominately.

Here's my card:

and the inside:

I had some fun using my Magenta Nuance powder dyes again.
Once the colors were completely dried, I traced a stencil design
over it using a white Gelly Roll pen. The Christmas tree admittedly
is new, but everything else is at least a year old or more.

I had so much fun with this card that I made another one!

I hope that you find some time to create something using
Gah! PINK! to help us celebrate Leslie. We'd love to see 
what you made, so be sure to link up at Shopping Our Stash!
Also, this is the last challenge of the year so it will
be open until Monday, January 1, 2018.
The SOS CREW will be taking the rest of the year off
to spend time with family and friends.

Thank you for visiting.
Wishing you a very Merry Christmas, and a
healthy and happy New Year!

SHOPPING OUR STASH #333 - Let's Play Tag!

Hello friends!
This week at
we're playing TAG!
That's right, we want to see your tags, either by itself
or on a card/project. Easy huh?

Here's what I came up with:

 And the inside:

My tag is made by sprinkling a couple Magenta Nuance dye powders onto some mixed
media paper and spritzing with water. Once dried, I die cut the tag. then stamped and second generation stamped the pine bough. I went around the edge with a VersaMark pen, and heat embossed using some glitter gold EP. Finished with some red ribbon.
The word die was cut from gold glitter paper, glued to a scrap of black card stock, and fussy cut.
The inside sentiment was heat embossed using the same glitter gold EP.
Super fun card to make!

Now it's your turn! Just crank out a tag and simply link up at Shopping Our Stash!
We'd love to see what you create. For more ideas, please check out what
my teammies created for your viewing pleasure.

This fortnight at the
the challenge is V for Vegan,
so that translates (to the Sisters at least, wink!), to
using any animal on your project!

I had an idea for my card but had to 
computer generate my sentiment.
No snark, but gotta love a punny sentiment!

 and the inside:
