F is for ....

...FUGLY.

I have received the esteemed honor of being crowned the 
Queen of Snark 
by the Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers.
Along with my shiny new crown I get to guest DT for this week's challenge.
When it comes to fugly (so ugly it deserves an eff in front of it) I have no shortage
of unattractive papercrafting supplies. I have a ridiculous amount of ugly ass papers.
You know when you buy a paper pad for that one or two gorgeous sheets of paper,
but then the rest of the pad is inundated with just blech?! Yeah, I have a bunch
of those. Especially old papers I've had for years but never seem to part with even on
my best purge days. This was a perfect opportunity to part with some of those papers.
The hard part was deciding which ones to try and work with for a usable card.

These papers came in a set that I bought at Ross or somewhere.
Most of them have glitter and embossing and are in the purple range.
These however are not purple, but at least they play well off of each other.
And for the record, baby blue is probably my least favorite color ever.

This guy on the other hand is one of my favorite images.
He's 'Gobsmack', from Sweet November. Sadly, I don't think he's available any longer.
He does however go fabulously with the snarkiest of sentiments.
I used some new stamps from StudioL2E and Snarky Stamps from Paper Issues.
Thanks to my new Snarky Sisters, we were able to share links to some new stamps
for each other. Snarky Stamps from Paper Issues are awesome! Lots of cursing,
so be warned if you choose to check them out. The same goes for StudioL2E.
My buddy Jessa from Useless Trinkets was kind enough to hook me up with
the 'Potty Mouth' set as a gift. She rocks. I had to expand my collection with the
'Suckyday Part-1' set as well.  

The inside sentiment is from the Snarky Stamps 'Ahh Real Birthday sentiments',
which are currently on sale. It looks like they may be phasing these sets out, 
as they are all on sale now. Grab 'em while you can!! 

Overall, this card is pretty cute. I managed to use up some papers that I thought
were basically unusable, and they do work well together. 
Even with baby blech. I mean baby blue. 

Well, that's gonna do it for me today.
Now to narrow down who to send this fugly little gem to for their 
special day. The list is long since I have a lot of good humored people in my life
who will totally appreciate this card.

Thanks to the fabulous ladies at the Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers.
They get me over there. Check 'em out!! And join in on the fugly challenge
going on right now. Just do it. All the cool kids are there.

  4. We are so happy to have you! I'm glad that there are more of "us" out there! Gobsmack is a fantastic image and the only way that he could be Fugly is to color him yellow (my nemesis!) Thank you for being our Queen!
