What a Pear

Some weekends just feel so much more deserved than others... so happy to sleep in and wrap up in a blanket all day long :) And the exciting news of the week is that my hubby's dad got engaged! His girlfriend is so so sweet and we're really excited they get to make it official. So this cute little card is a happy engagement for them!

This is a pear-fect card for two of my favorite challenges this week: The CAS-ual Fridays challenge to use a silly pun in your sentiment and the Lawnscaping challenge to use distress technique. And I just so happened to get two new Lawn Fawn sets in the mail yesterday, both full of great puns!


I paper-pieced the adorable pears using Jillibean Soup papers. I attached a cute little bow for the girly pear. These cuties and the punny sentiment "We make a perfect pear" are Lawn Fawn "My Silly Valentine" set.

The background is all distress inks: Mustard Seed, Tumbled Glass, Barn Door. I used my mini mister to spray the paper to get a fun bubble looks. Some golden Perfect Pearls finish off the sentiment.


Congratulations to Brent and Renee on their engagement!

  1. So cute!! Love the punny sentiment and how you did the background - so pretty!! I know what I'm going to do for this CAS-Fridays - I just have to do it. So far today I've made St. Pattys Day Scrapbook page for Michaels and started an Altered Canvas for them too and made a friend a bday card. Now I'm ready to do my own stuff! Have a great weekend!
