It's Punny


Puns are funny. I admit that I like them. They can make a 90 year old man laugh and a two year old boy laugh at the same time. Yep, I like funny puns.



The deadline for Lawnscaping Challenge is almost up and I wanted to share this card. I created my own patterned paper with the acorn from Lawn Fawn's Critters in the Burbs, like the acorns were falling. I added the shading too, to try to replicate some of the beautiful patterned paper out there and it just meant for a frame to highlight something. The something being the squirrel from Critters. It has been mirrored, a technique popping up in blogland these days. Fun, fun! To complete the card I added a sentiment from Paper Smooches Falling for You set and a heart from Lawn Fawn's Sophie's Sentiments.






(...Oh, one more thing. If you are so inclined to check out the tutorial I have over at the May Arts blog on this post, I would really appreciate it! Thank you if you've already taken the quick minute!...)

  5. I'm a sucker for puns too. But there's nothing punny about your acorns. They're just plain adorable. Love the way you've made them look like they're piling up.
