Always Jingle

I consider myself very blessed to have such a great relationship with my brother; especially because he is twelve years older than I am.  The older we get the more alike we are and we both have a sense of humor that leans on the darker side.  I made this Christmas card for him.

What I Used to Make my Card:
White Card Base
Holiday Patterned Paper {from stash}
Katzelcraft Cats stamp set, #KZT152 {the image was already colored and fussy cut}
The Ink Road Happy Holla Days stamp set
Ranger Archival Ink in Jet Black
Die-Namics Stitched Circle STAX

I put this together in about 10 minutes, of course it helped that the cat was already stamped, colored and fussy cut.  So all I did was cut the circle out of white card. stamp the sentiment, glue the cat on, attached the patterned paper and let the whole thing dry.  Easy as pie!

I always stamp, color and cut out extra of whatever I am working on, it makes putting cards together SO easy {IF I can find the images; I have a horrible filing system that is basically a huge pile in a tray.}  I'm going to work on that.  I hope you like my snarky holiday card; I think this card is perfect for those who see things a wee bit skewed and my brother fits the bill.  Thank you so much for visiting! I'd love for you to let me know you were here so I can visit you back! Happy holidays! Christi

PS: I just have to share with all of you - it is incredibly hard for me to type out Christmas and not just type my name! You have NO idea! LOL

  2. Love me some snark on a card! This is all kinds of fabulous! Thanks for joining in the fun at Shopping Our Stash!

  3. That cat is perfect for this sentiment! Love the card. (My bro and I are 14 years apart, and very close.) Thanks for joining the fun at the Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers!

  4. My filing system is WAY better than yours - four plastic bags in a box (one for images, one for sentiments, one for backgrounds and one for everything else) which I then forget about. You already know how much I love this image, you've seen me use it often enough! And that sentiment is perfect for our rude Christmas challenge at SOSS, thanks for playing along.

  5. Love this card!
