None of us is born thinking we are ordinary. Feeling special is an essential part of the human birthright. If you don’t think you are special, you won’t seek to contribute your gift to the world. -Rabbi Shmuley Boteach

"Let's have some PUN" CAS Challenge

May the holes in your net be no larger than the fish in it. 
Irish Blessing

Good morning my Fair Crafty Peeps
We are certainly working on stepping things up for you this over at the Outlawz Clean and Simple Challenge!
Pryn's challenge for us this week is to create a CAS card or project that features a pun for your sentiment. 
What is a pun, you ask? One definition is, 'a play on words in which a humorous effect is produced by using a word that suggests two or more meanings'.  Example:  An image of a mustache paired with the sentiment, "I mustache you to get better soon"! There are too many of them to mention...let Google be your friend if you are stumped.

Believe me, this challenge was not all that easy!
This was not my original plan, I'd intended to make a Fathers Day card that said "You can bet your sweet Bass". However, since some people are easily offended I chickened out and made my second choice.
It's still fun.
I colored the fish with water color crayons & a blender pen. then added pearl smooch to the scale dots and red glitter to her lips

size 5 x 7

Supplies
Card stock, water color crayons & party hat punch from Stampin Up!
Wave border punch from Fiskar
Fish image from Inkahootz!
Sentiment - created on computer and printed out
Party hat punched from scrap of glitter paper
Smooch
Glitter

I like both the sentiments but the second one made me chuckle - ignore the ones who get offended; that is their problem. They can learn to deal with life their way. That is a very cute image.
