Week 288: PUN

Who needs a reason to smile this week?!  We're pretty sure the gallery for this cue word will brighten your day!

Need help defining what a pun is?!  Here's a link that might be helpful.  Enjoy!

As always, remember the following CAS guidelines when creating your design:
  1. One main image
  2. Lots of open space, uncluttered
  3. Limited layers & embellishments
  4. Quick & easy to recreate (Note: It may take a while to create a design you like, but once you have that design, making more should be a piece of cake!)

STAMPlorations is returning as our wonderful sponsor and is offering this challenge's winner a $15 gift certificate to the online store!  Remember, during the weeks STAMPlorations is sponsoring us, you can refresh your craft stash with the help of the 10% off discount code, CASOLOGY!
