YMCA 2013


Over at Cards For Men our challenge is “APRILS FOOLS”. We hope you can join us. This is what I came up with. I do have to say I’m not the best person to think of a Aprils Fools card. So I would love to see what you can come up with. The image I used is from Kenny K and he is called LET’S PARTY. The challenge starts today and ends April 14, 2013 and the sponsor is Letraset and you can win a 6-pack of Flexmarkers their Websit is

My sentiment I found at Ginger House she has free sentiments all the time and I want to thank her for that. Used stampin up extra large decorative label to punch the sentiment out. I found some sparkle paper and used that for the dance ball. When I was coloring him all I could think of was YMCA with his hand in the air. So what the hack….

For me this is a pretty CAS card. I did add some white liquid pearls and Diamond glaze. The small alphabet stamp set was from Studio G.

For the inside I printed out April Fools and used a small note punch from Carl.

These are the copic markers used to color the image and the close up.

He looks like an April Fool to me! LOL! Love the "YMCA" added--so funny! The coloring is wonderful; I especially love his green hair! Love that dance ball--really clever! Just a really fun card, Patricia! :^)
Big hugs, Penny
P.S. My sister, who lives outside of Ellsworth, called yesterday to say that she was looking at nothing but snow! And we are enjoying the 80's right now.
