Good Saturday Morning to you, snarky peeps!
It's time for the next challenge at the
First off, let's give a major shout out to Sister Lee, our
Graphics Goddess! (If you haven't figured it out,
she superimposed Edna's face over the orange
clown sitting in the Oval Office. LOL!)
 Which brings us to the new challenge theme: E is for Evil.
I already had the perfect sentiment to use, just needed an image.

I had so much fun coloring up this image. The wee
she-devil looks like she's already thought up at least
a dozen ways to make your life, er, hell.

I hope that you find some time to play along in our Evil challenge
at the Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers! For more incredible 
ideas, do check out what my Sisters, and our newest Queen,
 Rina, have in store for you!
Thanks for visiting, have a great day!

Using those tiny stamps

Hello and happy Fri-Yay!!
I've got a fun card I want to share with you:

Here is the inside, using a couple more of the stamps:

The main panel is all one layer. After die cutting it, I masked off where I wanted
the stamps to be. Once positioned where I wanted them, I stamped then colored
the images. Keeping the mask in place, I used a gray marker to color around
everything. I used a fine tip marker to add random dots to fill up more space.
All the colored images have a coating of Wink of Stella on them, but with my
crack photography skillz, you can't see it at all. (grin!)
Aannndddd that's another birthday card made. Go me! LOL!
 That's all for now. Thanks for visiting.
 Have a great rest of your day!

SHOPPING OUR STASH #414 - The Great Outdoors

Hello and happy Tuesday to you!
We have a new challenge starting today at
SHOPPING OUR STASH -  The Great Outdoors!
Anything outdoors or nature inspired is good.
I focused on being outdoors, hiking! One of my favorite
things to do when the weather cooperates. LOL!

I've had this hiking boot sticker in my stash for years, and finally decided
to use it. I had to dig around, but I knew I had a stamp set that had boot tracks on it.
Luckily I found it. Some ink blending around the edges, and a simple 
sentiment finishes my card.

What does the great outdoors mean to you? Flowers? Birds? Inner tubing
down the local river? We'd love to see your take on it in the
Shopping Our Stash gallery. For more inspiration, do check out
what my teammies created and leave them some bloggy love while visiting!
Thanks for stopping by!

Big Birthday Fishes

Hey all, just popping in with another quick card:

Here's the inside:

A very CAS card. I know, right?! Where are my beloved layers? LOL!
Sometimes I like to challenge myself with the occasional bare minimum card.
This is based off the current Freshly Made Sketch #421, the stenciled 
watery background being the square element of the sketch. (Just trying
to think outside the, er, box, so to speak) ☺
The dolphin and sentiment circle are popped up with foam squares,
and I added some liquid glass 'bubbles' to complete the look.

 Thanks for visiting, and I hope that you have a fabulous day!

Feeling beachy

Hi there crafty peeps!
I have a card to share that really has me thinking about
warm weather and going to the ocean:

Here's the inside:

Can you just hear the ocean gently lapping up on the shore
and feel the warm sun on your face? Ahhhhh!
I'll leave you with that lovely image.

Hello and welcome snarky peeps!
I'm the hostess this time around at the
and wouldn't you know, it's a CAT challenge!
How ironic is that, being I'm very pro-doggies. 
Sometimes though, I think I was a cat in another
lifetime, as, like they tolerate humans, I 
tolerate them. LOL!

Anyway, here's the card I made:

I think the sentiment and this kitty's action pretty much says it all, don't you?
I'm hoping that the DP I used makes you think of wallpaper, 
because that's the look I was going for here.

I hope that you find some time to play along in our Cats challenge
at the Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers. Need more ideas? Do check out
what my Sistahs created for your viewing pleasure. You won't be
disappointed. Thanks for visiting. Have a great day!

SHOPPING OUR STASH #413 - My Heart Is On Fire

Good Morning and welcome crafty friends!
This fortnight at SHOPPING OUR STASH,  
as our theme suggests, we are
celebrating all things hearts. 
For my card, I took it a bit literally and created
a grungy, heart afire card:

Sometime last year, I made a bunch of panels using different Nuance powder
dyes. I die cut my heart from one of them. For the flames, I sponged a couple
colors of Distress Inks onto some white card stock, spritzed some Granite 
Glimmer Mist over it then die cut. The white panel was splattered with
black spray ink, then I stamped around the edges with my favorite
grunge stamp. A heat embossed sentiment on the banner
die completes my card.

I hope that you get a chance to play along at Shopping Our Stash!
We'd love to see how you interpret our challenge. Need more inspiration?
Simply check out the amazing projects that my teammies made!
Thanks for stopping by. Have a great day!
