It's Dude Time Doodles New Release Hop Time!!!

Morning All!
It's Wednesday & that means a new card for the 
Dude Time Doodles Design Team!
As it's time for the new images to be released into Dudeville &
we have a little blog hop to showcase them for you!
If you arrived here from NanaConnie you're on the right track! 
If not don't worry, there's a list of the hop order below!
As ever, the hop is a circle hop with no true beginning & no true end so you can jump in anywhere!
Here's my card!

This is Babe Watcher! 
An Adonis of a lifeguard! lol
You can see by the cut of his jib, he fancies himself as a bit of a ladies man!
I used an A5 card blank & added a matt of brown craft paper.
The digital papers I have used are from My Grafico, Two Peas In A... Set
I love these papers & use them a lot! 
I tend to print them out onto light weight matt photo paper as I like the results I get.
I coloured the image with Promarkers, cut out with a nestie & matted onto craft paper.
I added some 3D Glaze to his sunglasses.

The sentiment was made on my PC using the Beach Type Font, 
which you can download free here!

Embellishment wise, I added some Raffia, a couple of tiny sea shells
 & this fab anchor button.

This is the inside of the card!
So, after all that, you'll want to hop on to Lynn  
Here's the hop list should you want it!
Dawn (That's me!!)

Thanks for stopping by & don't forget to leave comments on all of the 
Dudette's Blogs as there is a mystery hostess with a little prize 
for one lucky commenter!
"A little reminder too, that this is the last day to pick up your Halloween Images
 from the Dude Time Doodles Store at bargain prices!"
Many of them will be retired tomorrow!
