Edna has gone all silly over at the Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers and I thought it would be fun to join her. Now if I’d put a lampshade on my head like Edna it would probably be more obvious how I was being silly, it would also have been a whole lot harder to make my card. So here’s the lowdown on the silly side of this card. It starts with my #WDE sentiment (nope not worst day ever although that would kinda work), world’s worst director, and no, that’s not a dig at Robert Stromberg’s efforts on Maleficent. At my work it’s what we call some of our team leaders, not the worst ever part, the director part. Well, actually, it was the worst ever part one of my colleagues did get called that made me want to make a card for her to help her laugh over the whole thing. I just abbreviated and added the hash tag when she was telling me about it as she happens to work in our M&C department and it seemed fitting in this social media age (I say that as though I might know how hash tags actually work, which I don’t!).
So maybe not all that silly but open the card and you get a bit of snarky silliness in my corruption of our values.
Apparently the reasons she is #WDE include her setting of impossible deadlines (deadlines being merely aspirational for her staff member) and her pure evilness in expecting her staff to do work for their clients.
I went with the Maleficent style character after seeing the current inspired by a book or movie theme at Craft Rocket. I’d originally been planning on using a ‘kiss my butt’ image but switched out for Maleficent instead after I went looking in my appropriately titled ‘Literary and Movie Character’ folder of digis and realised the evil but good character was perfect for the sentiment behind my card. For all that her staff member has claimed my colleague is actually an awesome team leader and the rest of her staff thinks she is too.
Over at Quirky Crafts they are looking for quirky pets. You don’t get too much more quirky than an enchanted raven-man as a pet although I’d be happy to have one if anyone is offering! So a bit of tongue-in-cheek fun to make my colleague laugh and a me to unwind at the end of another long week at work with a spot of craftiness.
