Smudger Challenge 1 - The Feast of Fools

This is the first challenge at the smudger challenge blog so if you get a chance please play along.  You don't have to use one of my digis and can win a digi.  The challenge is:

Well this weekend sees the ritual of April's fool. The annual bout of japery has ancient roots going back to the 13th Century when King John tried to enter the town of Gotham to extract his taxes, only to be confronted by a medieval mob eating horse entrails and pretending to be mad but were probably just inebriated or suffering from magic mushroom enduced hallucinations, there wasn't much to do in 12th Century Nottinghamshire!

To celebrate the ancient custom, this months challenge is "The Feast of Fools." This could be anything you interpret it as. You could use a jester (like I have), a trick, whatever April Fool's means to you. There is also a movie called April Fool's Day which you could draw inspiration from.

My card is for my husband and April Fool's Day for us is our 8th Wedding Anniversary. We are both a couple of clowns so deemed it an appropriate day to tie the knot.



Well it is a monthly challenge.  If you get a chance I would love to see your creations on the smudger challenge blog.
