SOS Challenge #15 - Snarky

This week's challenge at Shopping Our Stash is: Sassy, Snarky and LOL. Time to dig out those fun sentiments and images! Or pair something typically not snarky with a sassy saying, or maybe you have some funny family pictures that need a fun layout! Time to put the FUN back in crafting!

Imagine my delight when I saw this challenge in the line-up. :) My only challenge would be which snarky sentiment to use! I started with the 8/24 sketch from Splitcoast:

mostly because it afforded me the opportunity to use a bunch of SU Beau Chateau DSP remnants from last week's Stamp Camps. Here's my card:

heh heh You see, one of my SU customers once told me that putting irreverent sentiments on really pretty and froo-froo cards has a certain element of surprise to it that might be appealing. Oh, boy, was she right. One time a customer picked up a really pretty card, read the sentiment, said, "Oh." and put it back really REALLY quickly. :) So anyway, that's the tactic I took here. And except for the sentiment, this card is all SU, including that button that I found in some Holiday buttons from last year.

Since I was on a roll, and all my papers were out, and I couldn't decide which dusty sentiment to use, I made another card, too. Same layout, just different words:

I'm actually sold out of cards that use these sentiments. I can't keep up with my public's demand for snark! I'm only one person!!!!! *dramatically wipes brow*

Now it's your turn! Go into your stash and find a funny sentiment, or do something funny with a non-funny sentiment, or print a funny sentiment on your computer (I do that all the time). Then use it on a card and link up to us over at Shopping Our Stash so we can see what you've made!

Thanks for stopping by!
