FCCB - April Fools Day Cricut Crawl

It's April Fools Day!  Has anyone tricked you with a joke yet today??  It's also Monday again and that means another fun challenge over at Fantabulous Cricut!!  This week we're doing things a little differently and we're hosting a fun Cricut Crawl along with our challenge.  This week is all about April Fools Day - be sure to include a joke on your creation!!

I decided to make a fun slider card for this challenge.  This was my first attempt at this type of card and I love it!  I'm going to be making more of these in the future for sure!  I found a great tutorial HERE with easy-to-follow instructions and pictures.

When you pull the slider up, this is what you see:
I tried to get a picture that will give you a better idea of what the card looks like when it's open.....
If you haven't made one of these cards before, give it a try!  They're easy to make and they're a fun change!!

Be sure to check out all the other DT member's funny creations and join in the fun!  I'm looking forward to seeing your projects!!
