It's a Snarky Anniversary Celebration!

ONE YEAR .... Whooo Hooo! It's been one year since the Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers was born and one year that I have been creating cards for this awesome site!  Again WHO KNEW being on a design team could be this much fun?!?  As a group we are just as snarky, silly and sarcastic "in person" as we are on our bi-monthly posts and it has been soooo much fun hanging out with this amazing group of creative snarky sisters!  ((hugs to my PEEPS!))

For our First Anniversary we thought we would do "The Best of Edna" and make it a SNARKER'S CHOICE!  So pick your favorite from this list of all the challenges we did this year and make a card!  I picked "Z" is for Zoo.... because I must have missed that one...
This is a valentine card that I have created for my hubby this year.  I am totally safe showing you because he NEVER reads my blog... no really... NEVER!  (grin)  Inside it says "Thanks for being my living, breathing animal!"  He'll LOVE It!
Now for those that want to know, I used these awesome Stampin' Up block stamps I scored at a garage sale a few years ago and stamped them on this BoBunny Animal Print patterned paper;
I then fussy cut them out and popped them on more BoBunny cardstock.  The sentiment was typed out on a real honest-to-goodness manual typewriter which I found last summer at my local small town, second-hand store! And I didn't use any stickles or liquid glass because my hubby is so NOT that person.. Grin 
Here is a better view showing all the layers I created with my pop dots:
Now to sweeten the "prize pot" for this challenge I will be doing a draw from all the commenters on my blog for some of my artwork and few goodies from my stash... So Come On Down! and let's PLAY at the Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers. You have until February 6th to make something, post it on your blog and link it up over at the Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers. Besides, we always choose our top three favorites to be Queen and Princesses of SNARK and you get BADGES for your blog!  GO HERE for a more detailed list of all the Challenges from the past year.

  16. Oh I'm sure your loving living animal will be delighted with this card! And you're not alone, my hubby never looks at my blog either. Frankly, he wouldn't even have a clue how to find it :P And your offer of crafty stash is wonderful, but please don't include me in the draw - I only craft digitall now, so the stash should go to someone who can make use of it. And I know I'm late for ths comment as well, I've been working my way through the Snarky Sister posts in between creating lots of snarky pieces to play along with ;)


Thank you for taking the time to leave me a comment, I read every one and reply when I can.
