{Happy April Fool's Day} Blog Hop!

"April Fool's Day Blog Hop"

I hope everyone is having a fantastic Friday! If you came here from Kim from http://www.me-makimsplace.blogspot.com/ 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”  
Here is my card that I made... can you tell what I used?? Leather maybe?? NO... It's FUN FOAM!! I decide to go outside the box and use something I have never used before. It was a blast to force myself to not use just paper!!
Here is my recipe:
Card base, 5" x 10", scored in half (for a 5" x 5" card)
Layering paper from K&Company (handmade specialty papers)  cut at 4 3/4" x 4 3/4"
Tan fun foam, embossed using the Cuttlebug Floral Fantasy embossing folder and a Spellbinders Oval die, distressed with Tim Holtz, Vintage Photo Distressing Ink
Images from Fiskars "Aged to Perfection" Stamp set.
Natural Twine
Next in line is Jillian from http://www.jillianbeancrafts.com/

I want to thank April for having this AWESOME Blog hop and to thank you for participating here is some BLOG CANDY!!
I have a grab bag of goodies (below are just a few items, some surprises!) to give away but you need to become a follower and leave a comment on this post for a chance to win! Thanks for coming by!!
