CAS-ual Fridays Challenge # 41

It's Friday and that means it's CAS-ual Fridays time! This week's  challenge is Jest for the Pun of it-create a CAS card using a pun
 Thanks to the generosity of Skipping Stone design, we DT get to pick a stamp set to work with. My choice was Birthday Purses.
 To my favorite pursen
 Isn't this set FUN!? I happened to have a few Coach bags and all these bags resemble mine! I paper-pieced the main image (middle one) with Basic Gray paper.  All the inks are from Hero Arts' new mid tone inks (Filed Green, Butter Bar)The curvy lines are from SRM Stickers. It sure makes the design pop! Please link up your CAS project to CAS-ual Fridays by Feb. 29 Wednesday midnight Eastern Time.

I have been enjoying the special time with my family down here in Orlando, Florida. We stay right in the resorts of Universal Studio and I even met up with a VERY special stamping friend ( you'll find out later)!  I hope to share my trip photos in the next week or so. It's time to be back to the Great White North--Brrr!  Till then!
