April Fool?

Morning all! Happy Wednesday to you!
We've had some Freaky Weather here in the UK!
Last week was like summer & this week we have snow!

It's time for a new challenge at Dude Time Doodles yippee!
This week, the theme is 
April Fools, The Joke's On You!
Take it whatever way you like!!!
Each of the Dude & Dudette's have created something 
wonderful for your inspiration!
Here's my card!

Meet Fanny Fart!
I guess you could put her down as one of the occasional frou frou images at 
Poor Fanny has always wanted to be a bit of a practical joker,
sneaking up on folks to surprise them but can't quite figure out
why they always know she's there!!
Can you figure it out???
The layout is this weeks sketch from

I rotated it through 90 degrees

I added a little thought bubble to the image in my graphics programme!
The puff of wind was already there!!! Pffffttt!!
I coloured Fanny's skin & hair using promarkers then paper pieced 
her dress, hair band & shoes, adding a bit of shading here & there!!
The papers, ribbon & buttons I have used are all from a
Papermania capsule collection which I've had in my stash for ages.

The sentiment ticket is The Crafty Pad

I decorated the inside of my card too!
I find this helps with balance!
I really hope you can make it over to
to play along this week, I'm soooo looking forward to seeing what you come up with!
I soo need to have a really good laugh!
