Jest for the pun of it .....

.... I like this title - I've borrowed, or should that be nicked, it from CAS-ual Fridays - CFC41.  The team would like us to make a card and use a pun or a sentiment in a silly way to make a joke.


This one was quick and fun to make.  I knew just which stamps to use and I've gone for a cute pun!  It's a little card, 4" × 4", and has a lightly textured finish.  I stamped my image onto plain white card, cut out it out with one of my new (and under used) nesties, added some colour with distress inks.  Then I stamped the image again three times and coloured it with Promarkers, carefully cut out the sections and layered them onto the main image.  I added some sparkle to the wings and a simple sentiment "bee mine"!


Stamps:  Pink Petticoat Stamps free with Papercraft Essentials; Waltzingmouse - L'il Buddies
Inks:  Memento - Tuxedo Black; Distress - Bundled Sage, Tumbled Glass, Faded Jeans
Spellbinders: Labels Twenty-two (S4-346) # 3
Accessories: A variety of Promarkers to colour the image and edge the die cut; glitter for the wings

Here's a close up photo of the image - you can really see the sparkle on the bee's wings!  She's really cute.  I'm not sure who this card is going to be for - it may simply be one that goes into my stash - for whenever I need a card like this.  I may give it to Jonathan when we get to the States!!

I've enjoyed this challenge - and I think I might have another go later in the week - provided I can find a spare hour to play.  Kathryn and her friends had a very good evening last night!  I checked on them at 10.00pm and suggested that it was time to sleep, and I checked again at just after 11.30pm - still not asleep!  Why do they call it a "sleepover"?  The kids don't sleep!!  But they've had fun and we continue at the movies later today!  Now I'm off to check out what Less is More and Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge have in store for us this week!  See you soon.

This is the prettiest card Deborah! I love the delicately coloured background. I know what you mean about the sleepover Deborah - "Stay-up-all-night-athon" is a more realistic way to describe it! Hope they had a lovely time though and will enjoy the film today.

Love the card and the image! The inking of the nestie is superb.
Hope the lack of sleep doesn't affect the girls today.
Have fun.

Looks like you had fun with this & it tickled my sense of humour (the one my husband insists I've not got!!).

Just darling and I'm so glad you enjoyed the challenge and it's title :) There was no one around to pat me on the back when I came up with it so I had to hi-5 the puppy :) Thanks for playing along with us at CAS-ual Fridays!
