April Fool's Day Blog Hop!!!

Welcome to the April Fool's Day Blog Hop!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hosted by the super talented Cristina from Crafting with Cristina

I am so honored that she asked me to be part of her fun blog hop, and I hope you enjoy what I came up with for you! You should be arriving here from Ruth but if not that is okay, you can hop over to Cristina's blog and start from the beginning!!!


For my project I really struggled for what to do, because I don't usually incorporate humor into my cards or crafts, LOL, so Cristina really challenged me! Thank you! I actually consulted the net for some animal related puns and jokes and came up with this. I think the lion turned out so cute with the doodling I did. I used this jungle printed ribbon and then put some more brown ribbon over it. I like doing that sometimes, pairing up two different ribbons like that. I did faux stitching around the white mat with my gold gelly roll pen. The writing was done on my computer with my printer. I chose a fun font for kids. I wanted the start of the joke to be on the front and then you open it for the punch line...



I decided to turn this into a cute birthday card for some little kids. Funnier yet, this cute lion doesn't look like he could eat a fly. LOL. I think a little kid will just love this card and I am happy how it turned out. Hope you chuckled over it.

Now...for your next stop on the hop you are heading over to Elsa...Hope you enjoy her great post to!

Enjoy the hop and don't forget to go leave some comment love for our super talented hostess Cristina!!!
