My First Monday Fantabulous Cricut Challenge – Fun with Puns

I found this blog, Fantabulous Cricut this past weekend and was actually challenged by this week’s challenge of making a card using a pun. I usually don’t gravitate towards using puns in my card making, so this posed a bit of a fun challenge.  I had  certain peeps in mind for this card and began to build a concept.  I printed out the pun on card stock in a font that would most suit as a stamp at 14 pt Bradley font and for the word “hare” at 16 pt Bradley font. 

This card is for two people who have been through the ringer with loss, illness and very surprising news these past few months.  I hope this brings a smile to their faces when they open this card!

Thanks for coming and sharing a piece of “puny” pie with me.

Winner, Winner, Chicken Dinner!

This morning I turned on the laptop like I always do each morning as I am making the hubs his lunch and getting milk ready for my little girls.  The hubs came downstairs ready for work and hopped on the computer.  I asked him to check My Pink Stamper’s site to see who the lucky winner was.  I had fun entering my latest project into the My Pinkalicious Blog Hop Challenge, but the completion was steep and I had a couple of other fellow competitors pegged and wanted to see the results.

My hubs being sarcastic by nature pulled up MPS’s blog and sarcastically said, “Oh yes, it says that A Piece of Life’s Pie won!”  I just smiled and rolled my eyes and told him to tell me who really did.  He just kept it up, so I came around the bar to check for myself and he was right!  I must have blinked ten times making sure what I was seeing was correct.  The wind got knocked out of me a bit out of shock and excitement!  I woke the kids up by doing a big happy dance and I think the hubs needs to go to Costco and get his hearing checked!

This was my first challenge I have ever truly competed in! (I did try out for the last Design Team Call for MPS, but was  a bit of a goofball and did not read the requirements very well and was not qualified, so I don’t count that one).    I am not new to crafting, but I am new to paper crafting (6 months), so I am just over-the-moon, humbled and honored  that I was selected over the many entries of talented crafters.

Thank you My Pink Stamper for making my day, week and month!  This project was for very special people in my life and now it just adds more of a “special-ness” to it as I pass it off to them.
