April Fool's Blog Hop...

Welcome to It's A Joy 2 Scrap's April Fool's Day Blog Hop! 
I hope your Friday is fantastic, sunny and WARM! 
If you came here from Linette @ Moonscrapper, you are in the right place. However, if you happened upon my blog, please head over to It's A Joy 2 Scrap's blog so you don't miss any of the fun.
For this hop, we were asked to create a project that  
“tricks the eye.”  
Wow, I am not going to lie, I had a HARD time coming up with something for this theme, but then out of the back of my brain came the remembrance of this COOL card I saw on one of the many blogs I stalk.  A waterfall card.  This tricks the eye, right?  You cannot see all the images until you actually pull the tab....at least pretend with me that it is a trick of the eye!!




I hope you like it!  I LOVE how it turned out! 


I used some paper from my scraps and the stamps are from Close to My Heart.
I found the tutorial for the Waterfall card HERE and then watched it happen HERE.
Next in line is Debi from Debican. She has so many cute cards at her site...go check it out!!
If you get lost along the way, here is the line up of my fellow crafters: 

And because its my first blog hop and I am so excited, here is some blog candy!  If you want, become a follower, if not just leave a comment telling me Hi!  I will choose the winner on Monday, April 4th.  You will have one week to notify me that you are the winner.  Happy crafting!!
Don't forget! If you leave a comment on all the blogs by Sunday at 11:59 p.m. CST. You have a chance to win some fabulous prizes.
