Yes, I know, April Fool's Day has come and gone but you have to remember that we are a bunch of wacky Stampin' Up!® demonstrators who love to have fun and do the unusual. We're up to more April trickery and some interesting projects that aren't what they appear to be. Should be a fun time for all.
For my first project I made a birthday card. This is just one of the six I need to make for the birthdays this month at the place where I live. I volunteered to make certain everyone gets a birthday card on their special day. I'm not sure it fits the bill for the "it isn't what it appears to be" but, as you can see on the inside of the card, I added a gift card holder but without a gift card. I simply made a card to fit the holder.

For my next project, I used the new photopolymer stamp set Just Kidding. I wanted to do a fun card and the sentiment I used is so me. Even my kids comment that a day Mom is not stamping is a day that should be marked on the calendar! I have such funny kids.

For my final project, I used the Label Love stamp set and coordinating Artisan Label Punch both of which were birthday gifts from my friend, Jean. They have both been on my wishlist for quite some time and it was such a pleasant surprise to open up that package to find them inside. Thanks, Jean!
