Whether your bestie loves her house plants, binge-watching Friends, or drinking coffee, ACouplePuns has a punny card for that!
All cards are illustrated by owner and “entrePUNeur” Angelica Hanley. She “draws” inspiration from pop culture, things she loves, and places she travels. Angelica is a military spouse, married to a Navy pilot, meaning she moves around quite a bit. She was inspired to build a creative business she could take with her wherever she and her husband put down roots. You can find Angelica’s punny cards online and in gift shops and boutiques nationwide!
