DTD Blog Hop

Happy Hump Day lovely bloggers!
It's the last Wednesday of the month which means it's time for the
Dude Time Doodles New Release Blog Hop
If you are already following the hop & you map skills are good,
you'll hopefully have found your way over here from
the lovely  & oh so talented Tammy's blog!
If you have just happened on the hop then fear not,
it's a circle hop & if you carry on from here you can just hop 
round until you have seen all the samples that the Dude & Dudettes have
 created to welcome the new residents to Dudesville!

This is Franklin Stein! 
He & the rest of the fab new images are
available in the Dude Time Doodles Store from today.
If you are anxious to get on with the hop, you need to go visit with 
our super talented Nancy who I'm sure has a howlarious to show you!
Before you go, don't forget to leave some love along the way!
There is a mystery Host/Hostess with a prize to give away to 
one lucky commenter!

Now, as you're still here, I guess you want to read a little 
bit more about my card! 
I made a 6"x6" card using a sheet of A4 cardstock,
I used some digital papers which were created by 
Michelle Stones, for matting & layering,
They can be found here at Free Digital Scrapbooking
 used them for matting & layering.
The sentiment panels were made on the PC using a free font called
Evil Of Frankenstein you can find it here.
The image was coloured with Promarkers
I distressed the edges of the image & sentiment panels then 
ran the chisel tip of my promarker around it to get the inked edge!

I also added a little spider charm which is dangling from a raggy 
piece of ribbon which is knotted at each end.
Franklin Stein would be an ideal image for Halloween but as 
we have a friend who's birthday is around that time, 
I made this card for him!

Do you like my punny sentiment???
I just love that little patch on his knee!lol

I decorated the inside of the card a little too!
Now, don't forget as I said earlier to leave a comment at each stop 
as you go! Thanks so much for hopping by!
Your next stop on the hop is Nancy!
Have fun, fun, fun!
**NB Intitially, the links will be to the other blogs on the hop but not post specific 
as I will be catching a few zzzzzzz when it goes live!**
I promise to update them as soon as I can in the morning!
