Friday Fun # 76- This is NO April Fools Joke.....

Happy Friday!!  April is finally here and it is my favorite month of the year.  The leaves are filling in on the trees, flowers are starting to bloom and the days are getting longer.  Spring is here and that makes me happy.  Our Friday Fun Hostess for April is Christi.  Her challenge this week is NOT an April Fool's joke. 

April 2- Our Back to Basics day
No stamping and... for an extra challenge add an Easter twist (whatever you choose) to this card.
 No, you eyes are not deceiving you- it says NO STAMPING.   At first I thought this would be easy...but when I thought about adding the Easter twist....I realized I had my work cut out for me.  Or in today's case....punched out.  :)  I broke out my new Martha Stewart Punches and some Nestabilities to make my card.  For the sentiment, I had to get a little more creative and think outside of the box.  I faux-stitched the Happy and wrote Easter with a white gel pen. 


All card stock, patterned paper, and ribbon is available at Mark's Finest Papers.
Accessories: MS Butterfly Double Punch and Fence Border Punch;  White button, Strawberry Freeze Gingham Ribbon, White Gel Pen and Blossom 2 Nestabilities

If you think you are up to the challenge, we would love for you to play with us.  Just keyword FFC76 when uploading to SCS and/or link back to one of the Friday Fun Girls' blogs.  Be sure to check the other Friday Fun Projects for more ideas:

LOL! You and I had the same thought process...a do-able challenge, but wait...Easter?!?! I don't have Easter embellishments!?! You adapted well though. Love the hand-written sentiment! smiles....
