Snarky cards with So Suzy Stamps

Snark alert! I haven’t used my snarky stamps for a while (way too long if you ask me), so I directly created three snarky cards πŸ˜€ A few days ago I found a pretty paper pack at a garage sale.

So I prepared my Mini Misti and inked up small areas of the Butterfly Tree stamp. Because the magnets hold the paper at the same place, I was able to ink one area at a time and stamp exactly at …

So Suzy Stamps with Jane Davenport water colors

Happy Mother’s Day everyone. I bet we are all mothers of some sort, for example I’m the mother of a little fur bay, the mother of dragons (I have gazillion plush dragons) and mother of my own ideas (yikes, cheesy… LOL).
