April Fool's Day Blog Hop!

Welcome to the Aprl Fool's Day Blog Hop!  Thanks so much to Cristina from Crafting with Cristina for letting me join in on the fun! If you arrived from Mel's blog then you are in the right spot.  If you just stopped by for a visit, click HERE to start at the beginning.

We were asked to create a fun project in honor of April Fool's Day.  For some reason, I had a hard time deciding what to do....so I have two cards to show you.

For this card, I used Smiley Cards for the base and Create a Critter for the cow. 


I was trying to come up with something really funny....and then I saw this cake on Smiley Cards.  He looks like I feel as I quickly approach the big "4-0"  The sentiment is from the Scrappy Moms set - Kids, Inc.  It has an exclamation point at the end but I removed the ink from that and added in a "?" with a marker.   I think it turned out really cute. I put the cake on a wobble...this is the first time I've used one.  They are so fun!  This candle paper is from K and Company.

Now for some BLOG CANDY!  Please become a follower of my blog and leave a comment on this post for a chance to win a $10 gift card to either Michael's or JoAnn.  I'll use Random.org to draw a winner on Monday.

Your next stop is Gaby!  Thanks for stopping by.
