Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers Challenge # 24~Y is for Yuck!

Hi All!

I hope your holidays have been joyous and peaceful!    

Edna's back again with another challenge at the 

You can make card/project about something that's yucky...check Sister Jessi and our Fantastic Guest Designer, Sister Veerle artwork, that's what they did.  Another way is to use some product you think is yucky.

Since beauty is in the eye of the beholder, what's yucky to one is often beautiful to others.  Therefore, tell us why you feel something in your creation is yucky...because between drinking, baking, drinking, wrapping presents, drinking, sitting on Santa's lap, drinking, handling the holidays, drinking, eating, drinking, and being quite crazy anyway, we Sisters might miss the yuckiness.  But if you enter the challenge after the new year the Sisters might be doing a little less drinking, but I can't promise it will apply to everyone.

First, my Yuck part...the paper.  I didn't buy was given out at a crop I attended recently.  I don't like the colors or the design.  There is no real red or blue, just weird shades of them.  And what's with the notebook paper and and flowery doily part, both pretending to be layered...I mean what were they thinking.  ;-)   It's hard to tell in the photo, but the colors are just so strange it doesn't look patriotic,  even with the fireworks.  Also who takes a piece of notebook paper to the fireworks...are they planning to write down the ones they liked the best?  I started think maybe it could be used for a graduation or school award know, the notepaper.  So that's what I turned it into by adding "You're a Star!" on the inside.  Making something nice out of, in my opinion, some yucky paper.  Ooooh, maybe that means I don't have to purge my paper collection after all!  :-)

I do just love how the star turned out.  Layering the pattern paper with the corrugated cardboard took away most of the yuckiness of the paper.  The stars were cut with Fun Stampers Journey's Stardom Die~DI-0052.

Challenge #24 ends on Friday, January 10th at 11:55 pm EDT
