Sage & Snarky Woof Wisdom ~ NBUS #145

Hello Card and Critter and Snark Lovers!

I am delirious to be here today as the Guest Designer for the Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers. Doncha just love that challenge name? Some very talented and irreverent stamper gals got together and started this fun challenge. I was awarded this gig after being declared the Queen of Snark last challenge.


Yup, that's me! Notice the chocolate crown, the droopy bosooms, the ample midriff developed entirely of chocolates and kept inflated for emergencies? All mine and I must insist that you courtesy the next time you come by!

A lot of you might not know that you don't HAVE to make a snarky card to play in this challenge. Not at all! Everyone is welcome as long as you follow the theme.

The new theme is "Z is for ZOO." And just to show you how loose-goosey the rules are, I used a domestipated dawg for my zoo critter! So there you go. Have at it! Who among us doesn't have at least one zoo or critter image or piece of critter paper in our stash? Hmm?

I mean, when you think about it, don't you have a newspaper in the recycle bin or wrapped around that hideous vase of gramma's in that box in the back of the hall closet? Am I right? Well, papers are used to potty train dogs, so there you go! You have critter paper! (Pssst, I'm only the GD, not really a judge, but the judges drink a lot so I think you can pull off that convulsive line of ration Al thinking.)

For my card, I made two cards coz I love my doggie stamp so much. 
*******
I colored the images with Marvy Tombow markers. The cute dawg and dots stamps are from Stamps by Judith. The WOOF is by Great Impressions. The glossy white mats were cut with a Li'l Inker stitched rectangle die. The papers are from my stash.
Insides:
"Learn a lesson from your dog. No matter what life brings you, kick some grass over that crap and move on."

What a profound message! It's a NBUS stamp and one of many fun sediment stamps available from Riley & Company's "Funny Bones" stamps. The bloodhound dog is an unmarked UM colored with Prismacolor pencils. 

I hope you will check out the Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers and join us for this lighthearted Z is for Zoo challenge!

I'm also entering my second card in the sketch challenge at STAMPlorations Bi-Weekly Challenge.
And I'm entering a card in the "Make Your Mark" challenge over at Addicted to Stamps and More,
GRAB OUR BADGE!
and the other one in the "Designer's Choice ~ Use Markers or Pencils" challenge at Inkspirational.
The links above will give you all the details on the rules, sponsors, and prizes!

New Friends Corner

Our introductions continue today with three more new friends for you to meet! I'm so grateful for each and every one!

Liz of Crafty Sunflower. Liz started her blog in 2012, but she's only just added the blue "Join This Site" follow button to her side bar, so it would be great if you gave her a boost by joining as a follower! As you  might have guessed, Liz loves sunflowers and for the last 13 years she has been collecting anything sunflower-related. Liz's cards are colorful, often shaped, and always impeccably made!

Veerle of Veerle: Her Little Card Corner. Veerle caught the card-making bug two years ago and has been blogging since August 2013. She is an award-winning challenge participant and snippets user, so you might see her over at Pixie's Playground. Her cards are always full of life and color and she is great at explaining her process!

Lesley Gillett of Lesley's Craft Room. Lesley is from the "Garden of England" section of Kent in the UK and she loves both her hobbies of gardening and crafts. She is an Independent Stampin' Up Demonstrator and she started her blog in 2011. Lesley is also a Pixie's playmate, which is where we met. She is a very excellent and prolific card artist with a clean and sharp style that I love!

Thank you for joining, ladies, and welcome to the Playhouse!

~~~

And now, just because I think it bears repeating, I'm leaving you with this sage sedimental advice:

"Learn a lesson from your dog. No matter what life brings you, kick some grass over that crap and move on."


It's what Duke would tell you! Here he is today, thinking it! He's been loyally keeping me company in the Playhouse while his family is on holiday in Hawaii (where last we heard, they are fine!).
~~~

Enjoy your day! No, seriously, enjoy.  LITS!* 

As always, thank you for coming by to visit the Playhouse and special thanks to you if you take the time to leave a comment and/or join as a follower! Please let me know you came by, so I can be sure and return the flavor!

Congratulations Miss Snarky Queen! These cards TOTALLY float my boat!! I love the image and those little dots but the sentiments inside slayed me! They're both great and I've enjoyed the chuckles :)
I hope your family continues to be fine in Hawaii, but how ironic they'd make plans to go this particular week! Yikes!

That sentiment is too funny, Darnell. I will definitely use it. Your card is cute and fun. The stitched edge is very cool. I'm glad your family is ok in Hawaii.

Absolutely wonderful words to live by, along with life is too short! Congrats on the guest designer gig, you've done the gals proud, I'm thinking! That is one, no, those are two wonderfully colored dawgs! I'm sure you were relieved to hear that everyone is fine in Hawaii. :) Have a great weekend!

Lisa said...

All hail the Queen of Snark LOL!!! Congrats on your GD spot. CUTE cards, what a fun sentiment! My Max does his thing then kicks the grass or leaves and they fly all over me...not the poo, just the grass LOL!! Have a great weekend your Royal Snarkiness ;)

Linda said...

Love your doggy images and the sentiment is so true. We can learn so much from our dogs and they give their company so obligingly.

Glad to hear your family are keeping safe. Enjoy the rest of your weekend your highness.

conil said...

EXCUSE ME! I have to go out to the yard and kick some grass up. This card, image included, is "fall down funny". Incidentally, I think the crown suits you like no other head covering could.

Judy Woodland said...

Hi Darnell~ I just now saw your comment over at my blog. Thanks for noticing that I'm a little less active lately. Nothing special, just life in general. All is extremely well, just spending time with the grandkids and enjoying the summer. Probably in the fall I'll get back to more crafting. I have only done a couple of challenges lately. Appreciate your checking up on me. Oh, and your card is just too, too cute!!! Lots of inspiration there!

cm said...

*Fist pump* A courtesy courtesy - fully flaired with a gallant wave of my arm, and a bow to the floor (okay, okay...to my knees...ouch!), in homage to you, your majesty, Queen of Snarky! Your ample chocolate midriff and drooping bosoms: stop it! You're sending me to the floor again in peals of laughter! Super congrats on your GD role - and what a card you've shared to brighten our day! Your dog stamp is brilliant (as is your tip about 'paper' being adequate connection to the challenge..hahahaha) and coloured in most eye-catching fashion. The sentiment: oh yeah! I have some crap that needs a moving-on kick, for sure! As part of my visit, I'm delighted to THANK YOU for sharing with us over at ATSM! Lucky Duke to be visiting with his grandparents; bet he's getting a lot of spoiling and pampering!
Hugs~c

Sue said...

I adore that image:) Cards are fab.

We could all learn an awful lot from dogs.

Hope you are having a fun weekend.

Karen Schroeder said...

Darnell, you are an awesome Guest Designer! BTW, I am curtseying, but watch out. I might fall over...too much to drink again! ;-) The dogs, your coloring skills and the cute bones rock! The sentiment is perfect! I need to remember and fall back on it (not literally, that would be crappy)!

Mary Anne / MA54K said...

You have used 2 of my favorite stamp designers....Judith, and if the rubber is grey on that lazy hound you used on the inside, that is Art Impressions. Congrats on being a queenie and guest designer. It gave you the royal right to use such a wonderful sentiment!!!

Dotty Jo x said...

Sooooooo funny! Jo x

Sue said...

Congrats on your GDT spot Darnell.
Your cards are fabulous. I love the images and such a brilliant sentiment!
A beautiful photo of the ever handsome Duke. I am pleased all is well with his family.
hugs Sue xx

Sheri said...

Toni said...

Too cute! I've had that sentiment on my wish list for ages!

Pat Jandacek said...

Your cards are great - love that sentiment! So glad to hear your family in Hawaii is okay.

MRS DUCK said...

Hi Darnell
Lovin the dawgies (esp Duke). Not sure what snark is but I'm sure you'll do it well!
Knowing my luck, if I kicked the grass over the crap, I'd end up treading in 5 minutes later lol!
Have a great weekend!

Helen F. said...

That dawg can give some gooood advice! LOVE the news your family is safe in HI,these cards, this funny post, your GD Spot and that I can't straighten up from the curtsey I just did for you, Darnell!

Redanne said...

Just a brief curtsy from me today, it's the bad knees ..... well done on your GD spot!! I was not sure I understood the word 'snarky' so thank you for showing it so graphically - lol!

Your cards are brilliant, I love that dog and your colouring is fantastic! Glad to hear that you have heard from the family and that they are safe and well. Hugs, Annie xxx

Tracey McNeely said...

Darnelll love your snarky doggie card, congrats on the DT gig! You rocked it!

Happy Dance said...

1. Happy to hear your family in Hawaii is good, and am praying they (and everyone else there) stays that way. 2. Congrats on your coronation as Queen of the Snarks. C. Two Duke approved cards, I'm sure. We ourselves will lift our own scepter in your honor on this great occasion. 4. Saggy bosoms and slightly poofy midriffs are all the rage (or so I'm trying to convince the world at large) now. E. As always, your posts and cards are true delights! Bev

Veerle said...

May I bend my knee to the new Queen ? Congratz Darnell, so nice for you. And your card is really fun. Love it.
BTW the translation of my blog's name is this: Veerle (my name) her little card corner. It's as simple as that. Hi hi don't always believe the translation machines, they've had me too in the past. Enjoy the rest of your weekend lots of love, Veerle xxx

Sybrina K said...

Congrats on your DT gig -- and kudos on two great pup-inspired cards. Our little guy is a champion grass-kicker. Will never look at it the same way again. :)

JD/ Jill said...

Congrats on your guest design spot! Your cards are adorable...and a GREAT sentiment!

Greta said...

That Duke is something else! Love seeing pictures of him on your blog & so glad his family is OK in spite of the hurricanes! Your coloring is just amazing, Darnell--love these cute cards! I knew immediately who made that stamp--such a unique style she has.

Greta said...

Duke got me off track so I forgot to say Congratulations!!

Bonnie said...

What fun and the inside sentiment is worth 2 readings. Has Duke taken Hammie's place as your muse? He looks quite pleased to be spending time in the playhouse with you.

Donna said...

Fantastic cards! I adore that sentiment, smart pooches do it right don't they?? Thanks for being our guest designer this week!! Has been great having you as part of the sisterhood :)

Deepti said...

Hello Darnell, these cards are too funny, wonderful details and love the play on words. Really you should write a book.

Hugs Diane

Barb Ghig said...

Well, a HUGE CONGRATS for your newest title, and for your Guest DT spot, Darnell! You are so, so, so deserving of this honor!

I love your cards so much, too! That 'dawgie' is too cute, and the sentiment is fabulous! You've done some beautiful coloring, too...WOW!

Thanks so much for another great post...you sure know how to make me LOL!!! Off to check out the challenge :-)

Susanne Vargas said...

Congratulations, Your Highness! What a perfect title! That dog on your two fabulous cards is too cute! And the lesson inside very true! As a Queen you have to impart your wisdom to us common folk and I am so very grateful!
Joking aside, I hope and pray that your son and family (and everyone else in Hawaii) will be safe!

shirley-bee said...

Congrats on being crowned Queen of Snark, Your Maj :)
Love, love, love that dawg, and his sage advice! And thanks for bringing him over to STAMPlorations!

Jessi Fogan said...

OH EM GEE I giggled all the way through - the snarky sisters do enjoy tippling, lol, and we are especially fond of commenting under the influence. I LOVE these cards - and the fantastic advice - my Abby is a champion kicker as well :) I would TOTALLY give you a courtesy curtsy but I've had enough coffee that I'm afraid it might try to make a second appearance! I'm so glad you came to hang out with the Sisterhood :) Come back any time!!

SARN said...

That dog image is fabulous and the sentiment is perfick.

Maarit at Violets Corner said...

Such a true sentiment, it's a super cool card! Oh, I did courtesy sweet Queen, I'm also working hard on the chocolate bit.

Warm hugs
Maarit

MaryH said...

Congratulations Miss Queen Snark.
Can you see me trying to do my courtesy? (Just watched a recent Gunsmoke episode where Chester taught Mariette Hartley's character how to bob up and down! - so I know how). Also, I'm rather clumsy so I'll do me best. Your dawg is just plumb cute. I saw Carol L's a few blogs back. Garsh, this is one mangy dog, but I bet he's so lovable. Liked both cards. I am especially liking that little life's mantra about the poop & the grass too. Good advice. And thanks for passing it along. As usual I'm smiling as I type this...did you ever think of producing your own dishionary? Enjoy your visitor...how does Hammy like havin' comp'ny? TFS & Hugs. Have a wonderful afternoon.

Gerrina said...

What a beautiful coloured dog-stamp! Love the card-inside... And great new challenge...do they deliver some time aswell? Maybe I can try it then... So many plans to work out and just 24hours a day... Hope you enjoy the sunday, hugs, Gerrina

Pia S said...

Brilliant cards! Love the sentiments, I actually think it's a good advice. Look at that dog's face, it sure looks like his got no concerns in life.
That remote control in your previous post? Looks just like my cell phone! Have to get a new one, but can't decide on what model I want, even though I've spent 3years thinking already, lol.

Loll Thompson said...

LOVE your cards Dolly! Fun, fun, fun image (and colored beautifully!!). The sentiment inside - so funny, so you! :) Loll xx

laurie said...

That is a cute doggy stamp, and the sentiment so funny. And..... actually..... great advice!

I'll have to check out this snarky card link..sounds interesting!

Ros Crawford said...

Oh fabulous cards!! Love that dog! Congrats on your GD spot too!

KayM said...

Well, I should be healthy because I have had my laugh for the day! haha! Congratulations on your dt spot. I must say they chose well ;) Love the description of your photo! SO funny! Your doggy card is absolutely marvelous! You colored it so perfectly! And I adore the picture of Duke. He's a cutie! Hope you have a wonderful week my friend! ((hugs))

LesleyG said...

This post made me laugh out loud, I soooo agree with that sentiment! Thank you so much for the intro, I have stopped by your blog so many times, but seemed to miss the follow button, then when I tried again, Blogger was dysfunctional!!! Have a great week xxx

OH Babs said...

Love, love the sentiment. The cards are adorable and so is Duke. Glad the kids ate fine.

Wendy Nicola Jackson said...

Hehe, love this post. I hope you noted that I curtsied when I entered! ;) I've not come across the
Sisterhood before. I can see there are still so many corners of our crafty blogisphere I've still to discover. Love your canine creation. Very cool. Lil' Inkers are my fav dies right now, nice touch. Hugs, Wends x

Craftychris said...

Ooh Darnell, the saying from the inside is just perfect for us! I love love love these cards! I have a huge smile on my face this morning thinking about that saying! Thank you! I am curtsying as I am typing - not easy you know! Take care! xxxx

Chelle (PhotoArt/MaybeCreative) said...

A great job...who is the one telling on us for drinking a lot, it's true but who told? Hehe.. love your card and sentiment. Great job as GD with SoSS

Inkyfingers said...

Congratulations Your Majesty and I hope you can see my curtsy from here! I love your doggie cards and particularly covet those little bone embellies. The wisdom from the cards should be issued to every new Mum when being discharged from hospital IMHO!
Hope Dan, Rachel and the twins stay safe and are able to enjoy the rest of their holiday.
Hugs
Carol x

Marisa said...

Adore that dog image! Fabulous card and the sentiment made me LOL! Your temporary stamping buggy is adorable :)

Anita in France said...

Congratulations, your royal highness ... curtsying in a suitably subservient manner (which isn't easy whilst trying to control the giggles!). Cute cards and such a great sentiment ... Duke's obviously a very wise dog for thinking that! Good to hear everyone's fine in Hawaii! Hugs, Anita :)

Taunya Butler said...

Wow - these dogs of your look so real and lifelike thanks to your most excellent coloring!! So well done and the sentiment is so full of wisdom and wit!! You are a hoot and I love stopping by!! Have an amazing day!!

Julia said...

Wonderful, wonderful cards! The coloring is fantastic, oh Snarky Queen! You are such a talented hoot!

Brenda said...

Hi Darnell, (I'm doing my courtesy just in case you can see) you crack me up and I am loving this card! What a fun, fun card and OMGosh, I love, love that sentiment!!! I will have to remember this one when someone like hubby or my son complain about something. lol Too fun! Hugs, Brenda

Lindsey said...

So glad you are playing along as our queen this challenge, Darnell. And what fabulous cards! Didn't you read the fine print -- the guest designer is not supposed to outshine the regular team members? Sheesh. :D

lostinpaper said...

What a fabulous dog Darnell, I just LOVE the way you have coloured him to perfection, the other fella is a real a real cutie too!

Violent Kittie said...

Dog advice is great and it has snark! Thanks for beng our queen and having some fun with us!

Nancy in Iowa said...

Love the post. LOVE the bones!!! I love weaving a brilliant tie to a challenge! I need to remember that sentiment! And a dot stamp - seriously NEED to check into getting one of those!

Irish Cherokee said...

Love both the cards. Excellent coloring on both. Chuckled a bit before commenting on the post. Congrats on the GT. You deservr it o' snarky one. - Jim

scrappymo! said...

Those dag cards are fabulous. What a great sentiment too!

The little bones are so cute beside that hulking big yet funny dog!

Katie Melhus said...

Darnell, I love these woofers! The way you've colored them makes him look sufficiently spotty or maybe like he was rolling in dirt digging up those bones- he's adorable ! :)

Princess Judy Palmer said...

Love you doggie cards. I'm hoping I can play with this challenge because I have some critters worth playing with. The trick is can I remember by the time I get home? So far the answer all week has been no. *sigh* Sometimes I miss my mind. Not often though.

Pink Unicorn said...

Hi Darnell, thank you for your kind comments on my card! I absolutely love your cards, the doggy ones are so cute and so beautifully coloured and the sentiment on the inside is just perfect.

Kim Heggins said...

Finally getting caught up....this is just too cute and I love your amazing sentiment and your coloring is just as sweet as that cute pooch!

Miriam Prantner said...

Such a cute image! I love the coloring and those little bones are perfect!

MackieMade Paper Creations said...

I LoVE the way you colored this adorable dog!!! Cute! Cute! And congrats for being snarky! I mean...being a guest snark! Wait!!!! You know what I mean!

maria f. said...

Greetings, Ms. Snark. (Surprised they haven't asked you to be their ring leader.) I saw this doggie over in the STAMPlorations gallery and expected to hear that Duke got a brother! OK, not. Glad to hear that Hawaii is OK too. Big hugs from MI.

Julie Beech said...

Thanks for the congrats and congrats to you too. This really was a cute card. Wonder what my Max would have to say? Hugs :)

Craft-E-Place said...

Congrats on your STAMPlorations win - so well deserved! I love the image you used and the colour scheme is inspired. Thank you so very much for your kind comments on my recent challenge win, I really value the comments that you leave for me you are always so encouraging.
