Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers

So imagine my glee when I found a new blog on the block called the Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers.  I had to check them out right away as they sounded like my kind of folks.  They are doing their inaugural challenge right now through February 21st, so you have plenty of time to put on your evil head and let you inner snark fly!
As you see, the theme is the ANTI-Valentine and after so many Valentine challenges I am very tickled to have this one to play in.  I have wonderful snarky ideas rolling around in my head and I allowed one of them to come to fruition.  It involves conversation hearts...
..remember those chalk flavored little hearts with their sweet words of wisdom on them?  Yeah, these are so much better.  Happy VD* to y'all!

The Fine Print: Heart outline stamp by DeNami Designs, flourish by Magnolia, ribbon from A Muse Studio, designer papers by Martha Stewart because you know I just had to bastardize something by Martha for this challenge.  I did tone it down some though and rejected the "LMP DCK" heart.  * VD = Valentine's Day you silly.  Don't let that herpes heart go to your head!

Herpes! Oh, my stars, girl, you are so bad!! I love it! You win!! I just sent you an email telling you about this challenge and here you are! I should have known - this had your name written all over it!!

Bwahahahahaha!! Hugs, Darnell (I was gonna play, but now? How can I ever compete with this hysterically funny entry! It kills me that from a distance it looks all sweet and lovely with that ribbon and flourish. Seriously, they need you on the Design Team, so the rest of us have a chance!!)

Sure glad I wasn't eating or drinking while reading this. Perfect for the challenge, cute idea of the candy hearts. Love the ribbon detail. It looks like a perfectly sane Valentine card until you read. Thanks for playing along with our first challenge at Sisterhood of the Snarky Stampers.

Totally my kind of snark... looks so innocent at first, then SNAP! Perfect for our anti-Valentine challenge! Great design, too. So glad you're joining in on the first SoSS challenge!

Genius card! Definitely remember the hearts... they're still around here, and still one of my favourite little treats!! Hilarious card for the anti-Valentiners (my post later tonight crosses the anti-Valentine boundaries - still considering editing it for fear of hate mail!)... and the Snarky Sisterhood sound a hoot.

Oh, also meant to say: yes, cash envelopes are small, pretty much ATC sized... and I promise to give all the lowdown on the sizes when I cover the projects in more detail in the next few days!
