Who's joined:
1,2 -- JAire, with bonus

---------------------------
Aug. 16 is National Tell A Joke Day, so the challenge for August is to make a card that tells a joke! If you don't have a good joke to pass along, you could take a look on the internet (how I got the joke for my card) or just make a card that is funny in some other way, such as using a pun. The idea is just to make a card that will lighten and brighten someone's day. You also have a sketch option.

Your options:
1. Make a card that tells a joke or is funny in some other way, such as using a pun.
2. Use the sketch below to make any type of card.
3. For a bonus, use the sketch to create a funny card.

My sample, which I plan to send to my adult son on Aug. 16:

And the sketch:

The rules:
-- You may submit only ONE card this month. 
-- If you use the sketch, please tell what part(s) of the sketch you incorporated.
-- Open only to new, paper cards (no digi). 
-- Post to this thread by 11:59 p.m. August 31.
-- You may combine with one other monthly challenge if that challenge allows, plus the summer motivational challenge.

A $5 ACOT gift card will go to one Cherry via the random number generator. Please ask if you have any questions.

I used to take photos of cards with funny sayings in stores so I could use them on my own cards. Of course, I rarely used them and I haven't been to that type of store in months. And I probably haven't saved the photos but the Internet can probably help. 

Love your example.

Cute idea, we need a good funny in the mail from time to time! This is a good idea to make up cards and send them out.

Thanks Louise! My joke did come from the internet. I wish I was clever enough to come up that kind of thing.

Didn't have any idea what the answer could be -- had to go check it out in the gallery. Good one -- a Star Wars fan would love this!

Used both the sketch and a pun.  I have lots of funny stamp sets with puns on them.  I like to send punny cards.   And loved the sketch.  Used most of it including stitching, cut out circle, little dots etc.    great card challenge

Thanks Charleneanne! Your card reminds me that I have some old cow paper that would lend itself to some "moo-veless" puns!

Your card is so cute.  I made a couple using a stamp set that I got a while back.  I thought they where funny.

I re-read this challenge and realized I can use a pun or something that funny but not a joke, that will make it easier for me, I definitely have some funny stamps.
