April Fool's Blog Hop

April Fool's Blog Hop

My April Fool's Idea came to me after my Son went to a 

cover band concert at the local community college. 

Now any of you that were Teens during the eighties 

probably already know the name of the original 

band????  PLease leave your guess in the comment field

and I would love it if you chose to be a follower! 

Clue "Hello, is anybody out there....."

This will give you and entry into a random drawing for 

a surprise Blog Candy!

Pig cut from Just Because Cards at 2.5

Wings cut at 2.5 from Indie Art

Cloud cut from Gypsy from Create a 


Patterned paper is from K & Co Sweet 

Nectar Pad, The sentiment is Amuse, the 

label cut is a Spellbinders Die. I added

sponging of chalk ink to the pig, I used

my Quickie glue pen to add glue then


The hop starts HERE

If you came from Elsa then you are in the right place. After me your next stop is MEL

Your card takes my breath away! Who knew a flying pig could be so beautiful? Reminds me of Pink Floyd.

Your card was beautiful but I don't have a guess for an 80's band that would still be playing at Community Colleges. Thank You for sharing in the hop.

Wow, you made a pig look pretty.
I have no idea about the band. It must have something to do with when pigs fly so I'll have to say Pink Floyd.
