A Prickly Pun

Hi there and happy Monday morning to you all :)

I have another fun... or should I say 'pun' card today!! This time, inspiration came in the form of artwork on Pinterest so I take no credit for making this pun up but just loved the idea of using a couple of stamp sets to illustrate it :)

Yes its a 'Catcus' :) I know.... it's so easy to say, that I now can't not say it that way round!!

I used the plumpest cat from MFT's Cool Cats that would fit in a pot from the Sweet Succulents set and used a bit of masking to plant him up... I decided against including his tail because he didn't look right with it.

I used three shades of markers to make him look 'cactus like' and added spines with a white gel pen. To give him some company I stamped a couple of succulents in the background and set him on a black strip of card alongside the custom made phrase which I used alphabet stamps for. Sometimes its okay to not put a sentiment on a card.

I did think of doing a whole group of cat shaped cacti but I didn't think the
 pun worked as well in the plural... what do you think?


Thanks for stopping by :)

  1. Brilliant idea and fab colouring, had to really look (and read) to realise you hadn't put a cat face on a cactus image, great work

  2. This is really clever, and so brilliantly done! The colouring is perfect and, like the previous commenter, I had to look twice!

  3. Brilliant, Jenny! So funny and ever so cute! What a fab idea :)
