CASual Fridays: Jest for the Pun of It!

If there is one thing I can do well when it comes to card making, it's puns. I love making cute, punny cards. I love making people chuckle, too. When I heard CASual Fridays had a challenge to make humorous cards using puns, I had no choice but to throw my hat in the ring (or should I say, my sombrero)!

I love this card. I am very pleased with the outcome. I've been eying the Paper Smooches Chubby Chums for a loooong time and I found it at my local scrapbook store. I had to start playing with it. I used the cow image. I dressed him in a sombrero and maracas, which I found on a free coloring  page site. I colored them with my Copics. The sombrero covered Señor Cows eyes, but fortunately, all my cartoon watching experience came in handy. I stamped him again, cut out his eyes and placed them on top of the sombrero, kind of like cartoons with floating eyes and eyebrows!!

I found piece of scrap paper that looked like a Mexican rug pattern, so I cut it into a trapezoid to give it perspective, and taped some kitchen string on the bottom to give it fringes. He is muy magnifico, no?
