April Fool's Day Blog Hop!


Welcome to It's A Joy 2 Scrap's April Fool's Day Blog Hop! I'm pretty excited to be participating in my first ever blog hop.  I was a bit worried earlier this week that I wouldn't be able to do it afterall...THANKS again to my niece and nephews for sharing their stomach virus with Aunt Chelle, lol. 

I hope everyone is having a fantastic Friday! If you came here from Paper Cut Creations, you are in the right place. However, if you just happened upon my blog, please head over to It's A Joy 2 Scrap's blog so you don't miss any of the fun.
For this hop, we were asked to create a project that “tricks the eye.”   I immediately thought of doing a fancy fold card.  One of my favorites to make is a slider card.  The front panel gets pulled up revealing your special message on the inside.  You can find a tutorial for making your own at Splitcoaststampers.












All the materials used to make my card came from Stampin Up!  You can find a demonstrator by visiting the website HERE

Next in line is Linette from Moonscrapper.  She's got another great project to show you. Now get to hopping, and enjoy all the creativity that is out there waiting for you.  If you get lost along the way, here is the line up of my fellow crafters:
MICHELLE (you are here)
LINETTE (next stop)


Don't forget! If you leave a comment on all the blogs by Sunday at 11:59 p.m. CST. You have a chance to win some fabulous prizes.
