Accident Time at the Sisterhood!

I don't know about you, but winter -- the cold! the snow! -- is really starting to get me down. My condition is nothing compared to Edna's, though! 


Edna is definitely in need of a get well card. So that is what the Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers is looking for! 


I've always thought this Paper Smooches die would make an excellent base for a snarky get well card, so I knew right away I would use it. I added a PS germ coloured in what I think of as a particularly sickly green (Iced Spruce). None of the sentiments with the germ seemed quite snarky enough to work, so I made one of my own and used another PS die to cut it out. I debated both googly eyes and glossy accents for the germ's eyes, but ended up going with beady black enamel eyes and glittery black antenna ends. The germ and the  speech bubble are adhered with a double layer of glue dots for just a hint of dimension. As for the rest of the design, I was obviously feeling in quite a clean and simple mood. ;) 
I am adding this card to the current Paper Smooches Anything Goes challenge. 
There are more get well cards, both snarky and sweet, on our challenge blog! Our guest designer this week is Michelle; I hope you'll leave her a comment, as well! And then I hope you'll join us with your own get well creation.



Supplies: white & red cardstock, Paper Smooches Healthy Vibes stamp, Ranger Archival black & iced spruce distress inks, Paper Smooches Borders 1 & Word Bubbles dies, black Enamel Accents, black icicle Stickles, Creative Memories corner-rounder punch, glue dots, pop-dot tape

Wonderful card, and a perfect clean feeling for those of us who have been struck down with pesky bugs recently. Somehow, seeing your cute and funny little germ hasn't made me feel any better about my own - I'm sure mine's a filthy splodge of snot and infection! :P

You're so good at working snarkiness into your cards; they always make me smile. The heart monitor is such a good touch on this one.
