How very punny of me...


I've got four cards to share with you over the next few days. They're all so very punny, please don't die laughing! Each of them will be for the CAS-ual Fridays Jest for the Pun of It challenge. :) Since I want to enter each separately, you'll be hearing a lot about this challenge--I really hope you join in the pun, I mean FUN! :)

Here's my first card--I call it "You're HOW old?!"~

Details~


This card was made for my dad's (enter large number here) birthday this past week. ;) He's really not THAT old, but he likes puns and this card made him laugh, so it was worth the work! Each candle is stamped onto scraps of colored cardstock and cut out. The flames were also individually stamped from another stamp and then colored in with a yellow glitter gel pen before being added to the card.

Since I've also used scraps, I'd like to enter this into the Less is More Don't Scrap It challenge! I use scraps on most of my creations--I hoard all of them. It's NOT bad!!! I feel like I'm saving the earth by using it all up (says the person who's entire basement is full of scraps)! :)

Stay tuned for another post soon--you know, in about 1/2 hour. ;) Happy stamping! :)
