I never get TIRED of you

I wanted to share a card I made for a couple challenges. First this card is for the Simon Says Challenge this week...which is Summertime Blues. (Which I have been singing that Alan Jackson song in my head since they posted the challenge...lol). Second, this card is for the Whimsie Doodles challenge...which is You're so Punny. I started with this digi image from Whimsie Doodles. I colored him with colored pencils. I then used my Cricut to cut a branch for him to swing on. For the background, I used light blue CS, and added some "clouds" using versamark white chalk ink. They are a little hard to see here, but I promise they are there...lol. For my "punny" sentiment, I actually printed it from the computer. I then trimmed it down, cut it apart, and added it to the card. My pun being "tired" and he is on a tire swing...ha ha. Since the background is blue, and he is doing a summertime activity, I felt this card also fit well with the Summertime Blues theme. That and his summertime blue jeans...lol. Well that is all for now. I have another card I am working on, but didn't get to finish yet because I have to bake. Yes, bake...that means turn on my oven in the way tooo hot heat, and melt as a result...lol.

Very cute card! I love the pun. I don't know if you follow My Pink Stamper or not, but she has a couple sets of "Punny" stamps, very cute.
