Climbers Rock & Hop!!!

Hi all, it's time for the New Release blog hop at Dude Time Doodles!
Are you ready, steady, go!!!
If you got here from Lynn's blog you're on the right track!
If you happened here first, not to worry, it is as usual a circle hop 
& there is no true beginning & of course no end!
So without further ado, let me introduce you to 
Cleeve Climber!

He's an all out hard core rock climbing dude who thinks nothing of rocking up 
& climbing to the highest peak! 
With his back pack & bedroll on his back, he's prepared for anything.
Perhaps even Everest or K2,!

If you're anxious to continue on the hop, your next port of call is Ruth.

If you want to read more about my card read on!
I'll add the order of the hop later, just in case anyone gets a bit lost!

Of course, I just had to make a rocker card. 
I decided to keep it quite simple.
I cut a circle from some card stock, distressed the edge with some 
scissors & folded in half.
I coloured the image with Promarkers & cut out with an oval nestie!
I then matted that onto a scalloped oval of the same card stock as the base card.
I added a smaller circle of design paper from my stash! 
On reflection I would have done this differently & 
cut the paper in half but hey ho, it's too late now baby!

I added a little coiled up rope made with twine & a little shovel charm

I created the circle sentiment in my graphics programme, 
cut out with a nestie & coloured with Promarkers

That's really is all there was to it!
Thanks for stopping by, enjoy the rest of the hop!
The order is as follows
Dawn-That's Me!

Now as always, this post will go live when I'm on my snore shelf 
trying to catch a few zzzzzz's
I promise to link up to the Blog Hop posts before & after mine as soon as I awake!
If I have time I'll link in all the Blog Hop Posts before I go to work! 
If not, you'll have to make do with the list linked to just the blogs until I get home!
Do make sure you leave a little love & a comment on each of the blogs
 as I have a feeling there will be 
"a mystery hostess"
 out there with a little prize for someone!!
