It's a ZOO in Here!

"In here" referring to the world of the Snarky Sisterhood


Our fourteenth challenge brings you the last letter of the alphabet, Z! Z as in zoo -- use an animal or animal print on your project. I hadn't offered much in the way of snark to the sisterhood lately, so I added a bit to a birthday card:


If there's going to be an elephant in the room, might as well make him a cute one. I paired him with patterned paper offering lots of age guesses, and a computer-generated sentiment. 
Since I have never played along at Seize the Birthday, where my friend Glenda is on the design team... I'm linking there. (No "topping" -- if it was dark chocolate, I would have already eaten it anyway...)
While you're here, it seems like a good time to pick a winner from the comments on last week's CASology blog candy post! Drumroll (and random.org), please...


And what do you know, random.org randomly picked my occasionally random, often snarky sister JESSI! (Not rigged, honest.) Jessi, email me about your prize! 
Be sure to visit Jessi and the other snarky sisters for more zoo inspiration. Our guest designer this week is the one and only Darnell, so stop by and check out her cards, too! 

Supplies: white cardstock, Echo Park Lime Twist Fly a Kite patterned paper, Sassafras Freedom (such irony for a zoo theme...) stamp, Memento Luxe gray flannel ink, Zing clear embossing powder, Spellbinders circle die, pop-dot tape

Pin It Now!

Jessi totally should have made a card with a horseshoe for this challenge - she is on a lucky roll!!
Your card is fab, I adore that designer paper and the card has a perfect snark factor! Love it!
