Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers #152 - Anti-Valentine

Valentine's Day is  only a few weeks away and lots of other challenges are already gearing up for it, so over at the Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers we are doing exactly the opposite and looking for an ANTI-Valentine.

And for me that has to involve my  all-time favourite stamp, the Katzelkaft Grumpy Cat from their "Les Chats Russes" set. .

I've thrown loads of texture at the card, which was inspired by one I saw on Pinterest,  with some corrugated card, a heart-embossed panel, a doiley, twine and a sarcastically sweet wooden embellishment, then added a sentiment stamped with a So Suzy stamp and Grumpy Cat and his clouds of gloom coloured with Promarkers.

Since making this, I've learned that the Finnish word for sweetheart translates into English as "the one I hate less than everybody else" so maybe this is not so much an anti-Valentine card as a Finnish Valentine!

Now why not share your anti-Valentines with us, you could become our next Queen or Princess of Snark!

Talking of sharing, I'm sharing this with

Awesome card and cool learning some Finnish. So the card could be dual purpose depending on who gives it and who receives it.
