SoSS #194 - U is for Ugly

 

Greetings and salutations crafty friends!

Thanks for stopping by to check out the latest challenge from Edna and the sisterhood of snarky stampers.

Our challenge theme is U is for Ugly.

As usual, Sister Lee did an awesomely amazing job with our Edna graphic...but should I be offended that I have that SAME housecoat and those SAME slippers??? LMAO 

Anywho, ugly always makes me think of ugly Christmas sweaters and luckily enough I happen to have just bought this awesome cardmaking kit from PhotoPlay which fit the challenge perfectly. 

My sister-in-law and I spent some crafty time at the trailer recently and one of the things we made were Christmas cards using this card kit.


Not sure how this ended up so wonky and off centred, but meh...just adds to the ugliness...

Shite I used to make this card:
  • White cardstock base (PhotoPlay)
  • Tulla and Norbert's Christmas Party card kit stickers and design paper (PhotoPlay)
As always we would love for you to play along and join the sisterhood.

You can find all the details for the challenge on the SoSS BLOG.

While you are there, please share some crafty love and comments with our reigning Queen of Snark and the rest of the sisterhood.

I am also adding this to Sister Jo's CHRISTMAS KICKSTART CHALLENGE for the current Funny Ho Ho challenge.
