Challenge 7 - April Fools

Hi everyone and welcome to Challenge 7 of the Crafty Calendar Challenge!

We are so thrilled as we had our highest number of entries ever for the 'Flower Power' Challenge, reahcing over 300! Thank you so much, we really enjoyed looking at your beautiful creations and are glad you enjoyed the challenge so much!


First of all, we'd like to announce last month's winner of the fabulous prize, a $15 gift voucher for Simon Says Stamp! The lucky winner is...


Congratulations Esme! Please email me (Georgia) at gwelch96@googlemail.com, so you can spend your voucher and stock up on some scrummy goodies!


We have some big news this month. Unfortunately, we are very sad to announce that our Design Team member, Claire, has decided to step down from the Design Team, due to personal commitments. We're so sad to say goodbye to you Claire, but thank you so much for your time with us, your creations have been gorgeous all the way through, and we wish you luck with whatever you do in the future!

On a more positive note, we are thrilled to welcome Fern onto the Design Team! Fern is twelve years old, and makes stunning cards, you might remember her as she was our Guest Designer back in January, so go and check out ger gorgeous creations over at her blog, which you can find via the link above. Welcome onboard Fern, we look forward to seeing what you come up with!


OK, for this month's challenge, the theme is 'April Fools'. We would like to see you make a fun or humorous card or project. It doesn't have to be hilariously funny, but just something fun and cheerful to celebrate April Fools Day on 1st April.
There is an optional extra of embossing, although this is not compulsory.

This month, we are being joined by our Guest Designer, Clare. Clare makes such beautiful cards and has a lovely blog, so go and check out her blog via the link above to view her stunning creations!


Here are our cards for your inspiration:
