…nothing but an enormous drool gland



I’m sharing a fun card featuring a Stamp On It image called Stork.


 No one I know has actually hatched recently, I just made this card so I could play along (again) in Edna’s H is for Hatching, Matching and Dispatching challenge over at the Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers.  I had to do a matching and dispatching card already, which I needed, and couldn’t snark on those so I just had to play again with a hatching card and a snarky one at that.

As often is the case with me the planning took longer than the making but that’s all part of the fun of entering challenges, actually being challenged.  Once I’d decided on my snarky theme I went looking for some images and found this stork that just had the perfect expression.  I’m rather proud of the poop image as I drew that up myself in Photoshop.  I really think snark is often just pointing out the truth to someone, so I’ve gone in and said it here, with babies you get love and happiness but you also get a lot of poopy nappies.

Not content with just doing up the front of the card I’ve added in another image inside, this time Geeky Love New Parents from Make It Crafty.  I mean I couldn’t just correct the sentiment without a bit of snark.


Over at Inky Chicks they are looking for baby cards, hopefully they won’t mind the unconventional nature of mine.  The humorous tone of my card also fit perfectly with the current challenge at Creative Knockouts so I’m entering it there too.
