Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers R is for Rude

I love the challenges at Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers-they make me howl with laughter! And this R is for Rude challenge is right up my alley! I've had this card in my head for a long time, and I thought this would be a good time to make it. But it is funny, and some could look at it as plain mean. It's definitely rude though.

And now for the rude-

Image is from the Graphic Fairy, computer generated sentiment, and the razor blade is one I used to rip stitching out when I've made a BIG boo-boo sewing!

I've written several explanations, deleted them, write some more and delete, and have decided to just keep quiet! I can say I would never give this to anyone who might use it or take it the wrong way. You have to know your recipient to give a card like this away.
Personally, I would love to give this to a former co-worker who was the biggest, back stabbing be-otch and one of the devils minions. Oh, yeah.

Thanks for looking.

SoSS Wine Challenge

This is a card I've had in my mind a long time (or at least as long as I've had the stamp, lol). This is perfect for the W is for Wine Challenge at Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers!

Most of the paper is old Creative Memories I'm trying to use up (except the white and tan-out of the scrap bin!). I drew the jeans first, then cut the body to fit the curves. I used a white gel pen to show stitching. The sentiment is from Unity Stamp Co. The heart rhinestone is from my stash also.

I'm also entering this at Unity's Friends with Flair Challenge!

Thanks for visiting!

JAS Independence Day

At Just A Scrappin', the challenge is to celebrate Independence day, and here is my project for my calendar-

I saw this paper (Pebbles Americana) at a local craft store and knew I wanted my July calendar to be patriotic. The bottle rocket and sparkler were made with Summer Celebrations, and both were cut at 5". The banner was from Celebrations cut at 3"-I just love the stars on the top layer! J*U*L*Y was cut with Chalkboard Fonts at 1 1/2". I tied the blue/white American Crafts twine onto the banner-easy peasy! Red chalkboard marker completes the calendar.

I'm also entering this in the following challenges-
My Sheri Crafts 4th of July Challenge
Bitten by the Bug Banner Challenge
