The Answer to the Question that Should Never be Asked

Hooray!  It's my first Team Orange Torchbearer project, as well as my first ever Amber Ink project!  To start things off on the right foot (and to help you define exactly what being "snarky" is all about), I went with this fabulous Jumping Julian Rex image, which should be coming soon to a digi store near you.  Without further ado, here is the answer to the question that should never, ever, EVER be asked:

because, really,


I'm sure you can fill in the blank, there, right? :)   This cracked my husband up before he even opened it up to read the punchline.  Because I am never like this.  Ever.  Especially not if I'm hungry as well.

I started off by printing Julian onto some PTI distressed dot paper.  I colored in his teeth and mouth using some prismacolor pencils and cut him out.  The paper is from SU's newsprint pack.  I used a Cuttlebug city skyline embossing folder (one of those really small ones that you can never do anything with) twice on the "dictionary" paper and swiped some Peeled Paint distress ink on it to make the embossing pop.  I printed the sentiment, cut the end with a border punch, and attached with two brads.  Added Julian with some pop dots and lickety-split, it's OUTTA MY WAY, CITY!  NEED CHOCOLATE!

Stay tuned for some more Amber Ink Awesomeness and check out the other torchbearers here.

Oh how great! I thought I commented but I think I saw your card and went to grab chocolate. Just had to come back to it. Genius.

I'm not sure what's funnier, your awesome and snark-tastic card or Em's comment :)

Ok, the card wins by a hair -- snowflake and all!

Seriously, though, we better avoid any in-person Team Orange reunions at certain times of the month, or cities might actually get stomped :)
