No Joke, I made a card!!

My house has been full of April Fools Day pranks this morning which is to be expected (and if you ask my husband, encouraged) when you have three young boys.

I still fall for the fake spider on the wall even after all these years!


But I'm not joking today when I say I have a card to share with you.

I know!

It's been a while..............


With my boys starting two weeks school holidays a couple of days ago I have had the opportunity to     actually do a little crafting. 

I created a card for this week's



Sorry for my terrible photos. If you click on them you will get a clearer picture.


I used an image from our sponsor this week called  Up, Up and Away Rocket Ship



You will find the most adorable selection of images available at 




I used some Crystal Effects to create the glass window.


I created the sentiment on my computer. The stars were made in MS Word using auto shapes and then fussy cut.


I drew the moon on to some Very Vanilla Stampin' Up! cardstock with a black marker and coloured Copics then cut it out and stuck it on top of the background paper.



Come check out all the fantastic entries and share yours with us too.

Look forward to seeing you there.

Michelle :o)

Michelle, it's wonderful to see you posting a card again!! :) I'm so glad I visited your blog..I totally forgot it's April Fools Day! I'm awake before the kids, that might just give me the edge I need to beat those little stinkers at their own game. ;)
Your card is wonderful and I love the crystal effects for the window too. Hope you survived the day o' pranks too.
