Socks in the city

Hello, and happy Tuesday to everybody. I'm not sure if it's the lack of sleep or all these "punny" cards I've been making lately, but let me just apologize for my post title. I just got off work this morning after working 72 hours straight, and I gotta say I'm pretty glad to have a change of scenery. Today I have another card for this week's CAS-ual Fridays challenge. To see my other cards for this challenge, click here, here, and here. This is the challenge:
CFC41: Jest for the Pun of it.
Use a pun, or a sentiment in a silly way to create a joke, on your
Clean And Simple creation.

And now for the paper yummies:
This was actually the first thought that came to mind when this challenge was issued, but for some reason, it was the fourth to make it onto paper. I don't know why...because I LOVE this card! It's so simple, but I love the concept of this poor single sock, missing a mate. I was inspired by EAD Designs laundry room vinyl wall art. I printed the sentiment from my computer (font is "My Own Topher"), then cut the sock using the Cricut "Country Life" cartridge. The patterned papers are from Echo Park. I had these adorable tiny clothespins in my stash, and used red and white baker's twine for my clothesline. I finished off the card with some double lines around the edges with a black pen. Here's a close-up of my lil' lonely sock:
