Nothing like a good pun

The Jest for fun pun of it is one challenge I could have entered over and over again, if I only had the time. Yesterday my husband and I were walking back home and I asked him if he could think of any good puns, he came up with a never ending list and is still coming up with the most crazy puns, this one was the most appropriate as it also meant I  could finally use my new digital car image. For this card I firstly stuck the sky paper and green card stock to the base of the card. I then printed the  pun, car and bird images directly on my card. The reason why I did this was I wanted the legs of the birds to be printed directly onto the background as it would be too difficult to cut out the birds stick legs. I then printed the birds and car again at the same size and paper pieced the scene using self adhesive dimensional foam, I added the "sparklets" to the wheels and lastly rounded the corners using a corner punch.

It's raining quite heavily again in Sydney, no escaping this horrible weather so might as well make the most of it. Hope everyone is having a good week, I got a chance to visit some blogs eariler this week and leave comments without too much fuss due to the super fast internet connection at my local internet cafe, it's great to see what all my favourite bloggers have been up to, you all definitely inspire me to create more.
