Dude Time Doodles - April Fool

It's time for another Dude Time Doodles challenge! And the theme this week is:

April Fool

So, come on - make us laugh! For more details about the challenge and for more theme inspiration, just pop over to the blog!I've gone with an old favourite Dude Time Doodle image - Sashimi from the Fish Set along with a sentiment from the Fin Fisher Sentiment Set 1. I've made my own card blank (I've got a thing for circle cards at the moment!) and used an offcut of paper from my rather large and very overflowing box of bits of paper which is from Funky Hand - Craft The Year Away cd.

Sashimi has been added to the front of the card with a spring so he wobbles about and I've made the hook myself from wire and an anchor punch and attached it under the sentiment.

Good luck with the challenge!
