Hot Air


The Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers challenge #17 is "D is for Distressing." I think the sister in this graphic is shocked after seeing the card I've made for the challenge. LOL If you can't handle snarky - turn away :)


I know this isn't typically the kind of card I make, but sometimes you've got to switch things up and have some snarky fun :) This card began with a stencil-embossed flame background that was painted with twinkling H20's to resemble nuclear gas :) I found this digi in my files that was made by an artist named Marlene who stopped drawing and blogging some time ago, but I kept a lot of her hilarious images that I still enjoy using. This image somehow fit that background perfectly as she's "poofing." :) I distressed the image, adding sooty looking ink to give it a scorched look, and then added a sentiment with the Dymo label maker. I have no idea who I can send this to, but I'm sure eventually the perfect occasion will provide a need :)

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoyed a smile today :)

Ahem. I'm sure you are only being coy when you claim not to know anyone to send this card to, Carol. Cough. I may not sweat (I "glow"), but I've been known to pass my share of nuclear gas!! And that's exactly the size of my nuclear reactor, too!! Hugs, Darnell

OMG I LOVE THIS!! I blame it on living with all boys, but I have definitely been known to rip my fair share of nuclear gas....for months I was able to use a great trick on the kids.
1. Let 'er rip.
2. Say "come here"
3. Say "do you smell popcorn?"
4. Victim breathes in deeply
5. Cackle!
