Good Morning all!

I managed to snag this handsome chap to create with!
This is Axel Lumberjack & he's a hard-working chap with a heart of gold!
He & the other new Dudesville residents will be available 
in the store as of today!

Look what he's done for his lady!!!
Lol! The background is actually a photo of a sculpture by 
(Click on the link to go to his website!)
So the next stop on the hop is the  uber talented Ruth

Don't forget if you get a little lost you can pop back to 
Dude Time Doodles & pick up the trail there!
If you want to know a little more about my card read on!

I coloured Axel up with my trusty Promarkers then cut him out
The base card is an A6 Landscape.
I printed the background photo onto glossy photo paper 
 then matted it on to some white card.

The sentiment was made on the computer using Lumberjackfred font
which you can download for free here!
I cut it out with a nestie & inked with distress ink while it was still in the die!
The inside of the card has a paper insert, sorry I forgot to get a photo.
 It simply says "Be My Valentine"
I've also added a little uncoloured image of Axel just for fun!
I hope you like my card!
If you've made it to here, don't forget to leave a comment
 to be in with a chance of winning an image before hopping on to ......!
Hope you have fun on the hop & good luck!
Don't forget your next stop is Ruth
Just to let you know I will be on my snore shelf catching a few zzzzz's
