Snarktoberfest Blog Hop

It's Snarktober!

You know the word snarky? If not, that's what the Urban Dictionary says:
A witty mannerism, personality, or behavior that is a combination of sarcasm and cynicism. Usually accepted as a complimentary term.

And yay, there's a whole community of snarky stampers out there, and we want to celebrate with you!

Let's start the fun with a blog hop with lots of prizes!
Everybody who leaves a comment by October 5th 9pm PT/ 12am ET on all of our blogs has a chance to win one of the prizes from our sponsors:
So let the fun begin!
Here's my card:


These three funny guys are created with stamps by Gummiapan. You can get them at Swedish House Crafts, a fab stamp shop in the UK which carries the most adorable stamps and other goodies by several Swedish manufacturers.
I made a background using Ranger Distress Oxide inks and a cloud stencil, drew a line for the birds to sit on it and positioned the birds on the line with one layer of foam tape. I cut a slider channel into the background and placed a die-cut blotch as the sliding element into the channel. I hid it behind the owl by positioning the owl over the top of the slider channel with a double layer of foam tape.


So if you lift up the card, well... ummhhh... something's happening 😜!



 Wanna see it in action?


Hope I made you laugh!
More snarky cards to come during Snarktober!

And now don't forget to leave me a comment and then hop on to the other blogs on the list below to have the chance to win one of the awesome prizes! Have snarky fun and good luck!
