{pun-ny love}

I love puns.  I think they are, for the most part, clever and witty.  :)  If I can make a card and include a pun, I'm a happy girl.  I made this card for Paper Crafts Gallery Idol.  Today is the last day to enter a card and the 20 who will compete will be announced Friday.  With over 1500 cards (and counting!) it will be tough to get noticed.  I love seeing all the different styles of cards in the gallery, there is a lot of inspiration to be found!  Anyway. This sentiment popped into my head and I knew right away I could make a card with it.

Be Outstanding in Your Field

I absolutely {adore} those Studio Calico Potty People!  They make me grin. :) I'm pretty sure I used MME paper from 4 different collections on this card.

Here are a couple close-ups:

I used my favorite "grass" technique again.  :) Adds a little dimension to the 'field".

I layered a couple different patterns for the clouds and added that happy polka dot brad for the center of the sun. 

Wishing all of my friends good luck in the Gallery Idol competition!

Happy Memorial day, it is good to remember those who have served and are serving our wonderful country!


  1. This card is really cute, Jan. I love that pun!

  2. This card is amazing Jan!! I love your pun and that lonely guy in that field with that rockin' grass!! Perfection - if you don't make the top 20 I will be shocked.

  3. I love that you love puns because I love your very clever and a definite winner in my book:)

  4. So, so clever! I love the sentiment and the scene you created is pure perfection!!

  5. Good luck in the competition Jan, this card is super cute. I know it will get noticed! :). I love the multi patterned clouds, and of course the way you created the fringed grass!

  6. LOVE LOVE LOVE!!!! super cute and great grass!!!

  7. Good Luck Jan - this card is sure to get noticed!! I love the potty person and just ordered some of these!! Your little scene is perfect as is the sentiment! Love a good pun!


If you want to be happy, be.
