H2H - So Punny :)

Welcome to this week's Heart 2 Heart challenge!

The theme this week is "So Punny" - and puns are one of my favourite types of humour.

I chose to use a former Close To My Heart Hostess Reward stamp set to create my card. The stamp contains dozens of small animals and all the puns to go with each of them - I LOVE it! 

I used a pattern from Make It From Your Heart - Vol. 4 for the design of my card. Since the animals in the stamp set are all really small, I had to direct the attention to them... and using just a part of the card front was a good way to do that. I stamped the turtle three times and coloured them the same way. The bottom of the card is a collection of green patterned paper and the top of that row of banners was machine stitched. I also added a strip of Julep Glitter Paper just to cover the top of the banners. The turtles were adhered with foam tape and the pun was stamped below them on the right side. After all, they are TURTLE -ly awesome! 

Come and join us at Heart 2 Heart and show us your best puns!

  1. I am one who adores puns! This card is so cute! I love all of the fishtail banners - this is such a great way to use up scraps! Love this card design and your stitching looks so cool. I am too lazy to dig out my clunky sewing machine - it's old and heavy.


Thank you so much for leaving a comment - it truly makes me smile :)
