Default APRVSN17H ~ Saturday, April 1st ~ 3PM EST ~ Animal Crossing ~ CraftyMerla

Challenge Title: Animal Crossing
Hostess: CraftyMerla ~ Sally Merla
Keyword: APRVSN17H
Date: Saturday ~ April 1st ~ 3 PM EST


April Fool's Day is all about fun, finding the humor in things. So...

Why did the Chicken cross the road?

To get to the other side...because it was the Elephant's day off...who knows?












My challenge to you is to create a card with a Chicken, Elephant, Horse, or whatever animal you have in your stash. You may have your animal(s) crossing a road or each other if you like. The important thing is to have some fun creating with the animals in your stash. I can't wait to see what fun cards you make and share with all of us. Now go STAMP!


View the gallery for this challenge: Forums at Splitcoaststampers
View the April Fool's Gallery:Forums at Splitcoaststampers
View the April Fool's Challenge Thread: Forums at Splitcoaststampers


1. ALL VSN CREATIONS MUST BE UPLOADED BY 10 P. M. EST ON Sunday, April 9.
2. You have 1 hour to complete the challenge, unless otherwise noted.....you do not have to count prep time!
3. We have a special gallery for the April Fool's VSN.
a) From the "Main Gallery" dropdown list on the first page of the uploader, choose Events and Special Collections.
b) From the Sub-gallery dropdown list, choose Virtual Stamping and Scrapbooking Nights ~ it's the last in the list.
c) From the new sub-gallery dropdown list choose April Fool's - it's the very top of the list.
4. Please remember to put in the correct keyword when uploading your image. Copying and pasting the challenge keyword is recommended to avoid typos.
5. Please do not combine VSN challenges...but you may combine any other challenges with a VSN challenge!

It is also highly recommended that you post a link to your creation in this chat thread to be sure your layout is seen. THANKS SO MUCH FOR PLAYING ALONG!!![/B]

Ann, I so love your card! It reminds me of my time in the classroom, or when I was taking care of my nephews and nieces!

FYI: In my google search for chicken crossing the road, I found that there are people who really spend a whole lot of time pondering this question. Some believe that a chicken would presumably never make it across the road, resulting in death. Thus, the chicken gets to "the other side." (The mystical realm) So, why did the chicken cross the road? To get to the other side. Very morbid.

Can you believe that I am so wrapped up on commenting and admiring your work that I forgot to post my own card on my own thread? Yup, that's me...duh...here it is.

Fun challenge. I always jump in to use my animal stamps. Hardest part was to see who gets to play! Went with the cow and decided not to include a road crossing option so I could use this stencil. Though with the storms that came through last night around here, I'm sure there are some fences down and cows out on the roads right now.

Thanks for looking!

What did the chicken say when she saw the turkey starting to cross the road?
You don't want to do that, you'll never hear the end of it! LOL
