April Fool's Day Blog Hop

***Blog hop is officially over at Midnight 4/3 CST - will pick the winner tomorrow!! ***

Welcome to It's A Joy 2 Scrap's April Fool's Day Blog Hop! I hope everyone is having a fantastic Friday! If you came here from Jennie, you are in the right place.

However, if you happened upon my blog and want to start from the beginning, please head over to April's blog It's A Joy 2 Scrap so you don't miss any of the fun or blog candy!

For this hop, we were asked to create a project that “tricks the eye.”
I thought what would be fun would be to do a "Never Ending Card". I'd never tried one of these before and thought it would be cute and appropriate since as you open the card, it goes on, and on, and on, only to end up back where you started!

Also, April Fool's Day is my husband's birthday so I thought I would make the card for him!! (I tried to make is as masculine as possible!)

Here's one of many great tutorials out there on how to make this type of card!

The cartridges I used on this project were Live Simply, Celebrations, Sweet Treats, Paisley, and Plantin School Book.

Front Of the Card

What you see after the first flip...

What you see after the second flip...

What you see after the third flip...

If you flip it one more time, you end up right where you began!!

I've pulled together some cute stamp sets, brass stencils, and embellishments for my blog candy. To be eligible for the drawing, just leave me a comment and a way to get a hold of you. ***You don't have to be a follower but I'd love it if you chose to! *** If you don't claim your prize within one week, I will award it to the next person.

***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.***

Next in line is Tiffany from Sparkled Memories. What I like about her blog/style is that she makes cards that range from really CUTE to sophisticated.

Darlene Saucier

Lindsey Zaldivar
