Boo! Be a DTD Guest Designer & A Freebie For You!

Hi all!

It's the second Wednesday of the month! 
Hard to believe we're so far into August already isn't it!
Over at Dude Time Doodles, we have a new challenge for you!
We also have a freebie for you from Bonibleaux Designs to work with! Yay!
He's called Gavin Ghost!
Pop on over to the Dude Time Doodles  Challenge Blog  to pick him up!
We'd love to see what you can do with him!

The prize for this challenge is the chance to be a Dudette for a month 
join in the fun with the rest of the awesome ladies on the 

Here's my card!

I made a spring card using Gavin as the main image!

I used promarkers to highlight a few areas on the image & then cut him out with a Nellie Snellen die!
The papers I've used are from Dovecraft.
I die cut some letters & symbols which are supposed to indicate surprise!
(Well they do in my mind! lol!)
I added some irridescent gemstones around the image  & on the base of the card

I also added a key to unlock that padlock, just incase!

Finally, I made a tag to go with the card 
as it's difficult to add a message once it's assembled!
Can't tell you what the tag says, that's private *wink* *wink*!
Thanks for looking!
I hope you manage to snag that freebie & play along!
We'd love to have you on the team!

While I'm here, I should remind you about the 

Dude Time Doodles Scavenger Crawl!

We're all very excited about it & preparations are well under way!
Not too long to go now either! 
Hope you have it posted on your side bar so you don't miss out!
There's gonna be prizes & candy & most of all fun fun fun!
Make sure you make a note in your diary too!
