SoSS 152 - A is for Anti Valentine

Greetings & salutations snarky pals!!

Thanks for stopping by to check out the newest challenge from Edna and the Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers.

We are not much for the touchy feely here at the sisterhood, all that lovely dovey stuff....barf!!

We have always taken a different approach to Valentine's Day - as you can see from Edna's t-shirt.

Our very first challenge way back in February 2014 was A is for Anti Valentine...and we have celebrated it every year since!

This year, I made an ATC that soooooo accurately describes my soon to be 13 year marriage to the Kevinator...without him...who would make me tea and toast???

I bought myself a little handheld Singer sewing machine from Amazon and this was my first attempt at some crafty stitching. It went off the rails in a few spots, but the biggest oooops is under the cupcake, so it's all good LOL

Shite I used to make this ATC:

  • Cardboard ATC base
  • Ancient & retired SU design paper
  • Cupcake die cut (Recollections)
  • Heart sticker from a planner set (Recollections)
  • Small Talk Snarky Occasion sentiment sticker (Tim Holtz)
  • Sewing machine (Swinger)
As always, we would love for you to join the sisterhood and play along.

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 the rest of the sisterhood!

Well that's obviously why HWMBI and I are coming up to our 43rd anniversary! I ought to make him a card like that for Valentine's Day (which being the awkward blighters we are, we don't celebrate on February 14th)

Super cute ATC, great sentiment and true. I remember those days my coffee was made for me after I've slept in. Nice try with the stitching, those hand held ones take some practice, and how many time must I say.......there are NO mistakes only opportunities to embellish.

Fabby card, hun! My hubster makes great tea and toast too - must be why we've been putting up with each other for twenty years, Jo x

I miss the days where my husband woke me up with coffee & kisses! Great card and stitching!

Count me in the getting tea in the morning club! And wonky stitching adds way more interest than boring ordinary stitching would. Fun ATC!

I still have milk brought to my bed, when Mr W. is around. He's been doing this for the last 9)§"/§()8 years :)

Great Card, sweet Sistah ♥

Congrats on 13 years.. wish I knew that advice, neither of us cooks. LOL Great ATC

Chris Dring said...

WTG on about 13 years! Glad that you found that one special someone that you can annoy the rest of your life AND he cooks too! With my marriage, he brings home the bacon and I fry it up in a pan, as they say. LOL! Super fab ATC!
