The Snarky Sisters are Back...

... and we are in some fine company for our latest challenge!



Hello, BRADS! Oh, and buttons, right. I'll tell you right up front, I am not a button girl. Don't mind them on other people's cards, but not really my thing. Of course, I HAVE buttons; I just don't use them. And of course I HAVE brads... but I still used this challenge as an excuse to buy some more. ;)



Kitty brads! How could I resist? And let me tell you, I spent far too much time trying to get this card to photograph accurately... if you know the Stampin' Up paper Almost Amethyst, that's the card base and thought bubble colour, so adjust your (mind)sets accordingly. And while this may not appear at all snarky... pause for a moment and consider that what else would the average cat dream be, if not snarky? :P
Brads or buttons... or both! You have two weeks, so why not join us? Be sure to check out the terrific inspiration my sisters in snarkiness have created, too! 

Supplies: white, purple & Stampin' Up almost amethyst textured cardstock, Authentique Be(you)tiful patterned paper, Simon Says Stamp Pillow Talk stamps, Versafine onyx black & Stampin Up almost amethyst inks, clear embossing powder, Spellbinders oval die, Stampin' Up ticket corner punch, Eyelet outlet brad, pop-dot tape

Kitty brads! Awesome! Know what I thought was also brilliant about your card? (besides the kitty brad) That you used an oval die-as-rug for said kitty to lie on!

Now there's a bit of a similarity. My best friend here doesn't like Buttons AT ALL on cards either. I personally really like the kitty brad over a button...and we all know that cats are Snarky ;-)

I want a kitty brad. He is too cute. Cats are the best!

Oh yeah, that kitty is definitely dreaming of you being eaten by sharks or something like that ;) IT'S SO CUTE!!! And of course I've also gone & bought things because of a challenge...anyone who says they haven't is lyyyyyying!

I'm not a button person either, but I adore cute brads like this kitty! I love the CAS look too, especially those tiny heart accents!

Of course a kitty would dream of me. I have a thumb and know how to use it to open cans of food! Very sweet!

I'm not a button person either but that's the route I went (too much bulk on your card).

LOL, this is adorable, Linds! Ya, cats would definitely not dream of others. ;)
