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'm also entering my second card in the sketch challenge at STAMPlorations Bi-Weekly Challenge.
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!).
