A Toucan of My Appreciation

When I taught third grade we learned about toucans when we studied the rainforest. The kids loved to write simple punny poems using the word toucan.  I gave an example or two like this:

What can scare a toucan?  BOO-can!

What can float a toucan?  A CANOE-can!

Who can write a pun about a toucan?  YOU-can!

If you have a punny toucan question and answer I would love to hear it!

I am delighted to be the guest designer at the Tic Tac Toe challenge this week!  I decided to go corner to corner and picked Puns - Accents - Metallics.  Check out the wonderful inspiration from the Tic Tac Toe Design Team and then pick your own line of design inspiration!

I based my layout on the sketch at Cas(e) this Sketch.

Stamp Set:  Bird Banter
Paper:  Silver Foil, Whisper White, Springtime Foils
Ink: Black, Copics
Accents:  Black Rhinestone, Silver Cord, Wonky Stitches Die

What a cute design! Love your stitched edges and the little peek of foil paper under your focal panel is perfect. Great design! :) You are definitely too punny. ;)

Who can make great cards? Tou-can! This is so cute, love you layout! I live with a very punny man, so I've heard lots of them!

Such a great card! I hate to admit that I adore your jokes, but I do. Love the simplicity of your card and all the gorgeous colors on your toucan. <3

Totally fun post Linda! The puns are too punny. I am trying to resist buying Bird Banter but I think you may have tipped the scales with this cutie.

Well that's clever! I'm pretty sure I can't write a punny poem but I love the colorful Toucan!
