Hello and welcome friends. 
Before we get to the challenge, some devastating news. 
It's with an incredibly heavy heart that I let you know of the
passing of our friend and Sister Lindsey earlier this week.
She was an amazing woman, friend, and one heck of a master
at the CAS card, not to mention having a fabulous snarky sense of humor.
The world lost a great woman, but I know Heaven has gained an
amazing angel. She will be so very missed.


Hello snarky peeps and welcome!
This fortnight's challenge at the
is one of those sometimes-difficult themes:
Luckily for me, I have a few beer mug stamps to create a guy card:

Here's the inside:

Beer and birthdays - always a good choice for a guy card
(21 years and older, of course!)

 Hello and welcome!
The new monthly challenge starts today at
This month's theme is Dogs or Cats.
Artist trading cards or coins are welcome.
Here's what I created:

I had this idea stuck in my head to use these fun Katzelkraft dog stamps
and make them look like they were standing under the mistletoe,
waiting to be kissed. LOL! Since the paper I used was very busy,
I decided to just stamp the dogs and mistletoe and leave uncolored.
I could have sworn I had some small Santa hat stickers in
my stash, but couldn't find them. I did find these fun
winter hats and antler stickers, which were even better!
I just printed out the sentiments, and colored the 
paper with different Spectrum Noir markers before adhering
to my ATC's.
Here are some close ups:

These were so much fun to make! I hope that you'll
join us for our Dogs or Cats challenge this month at

This little guy is so cute, I just couldn't snark him up. LOL!
I colored him with Spectrum Noir markers using coordinating colors
from the patterned paper. I added shading to his beard and mustache with
a gray Prismacolor pencil.

A simple sentiment finishes the inside:
