DTD 2nd Anniversary Party Sale Blog Hop

Good morning beautiful bloggers
It's Wednesday & that means it's time for the  
If you're following the hop, you'll have dropped in from
the awesomely talented Tammy!
I'm sure she had something wonderful to show you!
If my blog is the first stop, then just keep on hopping until you've been 
round all the stops! Don't forget to leave some love 
along the way, as there may be a little surprise for one lucky commenter!!
This month we don't have any new releases for you but instead we have
a fantabulous 50% off Anniversary Party Sale!
Dude Time Doodles is 2 years old whoop whoop!
To celebrate, all of the images you see along the hop as well as a 
few others are on Special Offer from today until 13th November.
There are in fact an amazing 37 images on sale! Whoopppeee!
Here's my card!

I've actually used three images on my card.
I've merged them in my graphics programme!
Pop on over to the store to see them in their original format!
If you're in a rush, you can hop on over to the next stop,
our wonderful October Guest Dudette Esther
who will no doubt astound you with her creation!
If not read on for a little more info about my card!
I used the sketch

from Stars & Stamps for my card design.
I altered the shapes slightly.

Kris looks like he's already been celebrating & getting right 
in to the spirit of things! lol
The images were coloured using a mix of Promarkers, 
Flexmarkers & Sakura pens.

My DP is from Papermania, I've had it in my stash for ages!
I cut out the image with a nestie&  used a little gold inkpad 
to distress all of the edges !
I wrapped the panel with Bakers Twine & added a little 
Christmas tree charm.
The circle sentiment is from my stash & has been printed out from last year.
Not sure where it came from, I have a feeling it may be Sentiments 4 You,
which is temporarily closed, but I can't be sure!

As I usually do, I've added a little decoration inside my card!
So now the time has come for you to head off to Esther
As I said earlier, leave a little love along the way as 
there may be a little surprise for one lucky commenter!
Happy hopping & don't forget the shopping!
