Aim High

Good Morning all!
 Is it Wednesday already!!!
Don't know where the time is going this week!
We've had a bit of a busy time here but that's another story!
It's time for the New Release Blog Hop at
If you've come from CG's awesome blog, you're on the right track!
If not don't worry it's a circle hop with no beginning & no end,
just keep hopping until you've visited all the Dude & Dudettes blogs.
Don't forget to leave a comment at each stop for the chance to win 
a little prize from the mystery host/hostess!
So, here's my card!

The image I have used is 3 Pointer Perry
He reminds me of somone I know!
Look at his lovely baby blues!!!
He looks like he's having a lot of fun in the park!

I made an easel card using an A4 sheet of cadstock.
The papers I have used are Hopscotch from K&Co.
If you need to hop on, Sharon one of our amazing GDT Dudettes 
is waiting for you! Don't forget to leave some love!!!
Here's a little bit more about my card!

I added a little sentiment in my graphics programme before printing!
Next, I coloured Perry up with Promarkers & cut him out with a nestie.

I made a rosette from one of the Dp's for the stop.
I added a birthday sentiment which I created in my graphics 
programme on top of a bakers twine bow!
I also added some Card Candi just for a little more detail!
Thanks for stopping by! 
If you still need to hop on here's the link for Sharon again!
At the time of going live, I think CG was still fast asleep so I tip toed around her blog & will add 
the direct link to her blog hop post later when I get back from work!
