DTD New Release Blog Hop

Good morning lovely bloggers!
It's the 4th Wednesday of the month which means it's time for
The Dude Time Doodles New Release Blog Hop!
If you've made it here from the lovely Charlene's blog then you're on the right track!
If not, just hop on from here as the hop is a circle hop with no 
beginning & no end! 
Just keep hopping until you've seen all the lovely creations!
Here's my card!

The image I have used is Silly Sam!
He's a clever cookie is he not!
I know how hard it is to ride a unicycle as I bought one for my
hubby a few years back.
He finally mastered it last year & he keeps the neighbours entertained
when he's out practising! lol
Actually, I'm really impressed, he's my Hero!
All of the new release images will be available in store from today!
The papers I have used are from the 
Springtime collection at Scrapbookingmad
They gave me just the right Summery/Circus type look I was trying to find.
To tie in with the Cupcake Inspirations Challenge

Photo Inspiration
The stepper card base was a template from Craftystash.
I added some hand made bunting & a few buttons from my stash.
The letters were die cut.

Here's a closer look at Sam!

I decorated the inside of the card just a little to give it better balance.
So now you need to hop on to the very handsome & dashing dude Kevin 
Before you hop on, don't forget to leave a comment as one of the team
will be the mystery host.hostess & will have a little prize for one lucky person
who leaves a comment!
As usual I'll be catching up on my beauty sleep when this post goes live! I'll try to amand the blog links to make sure it takes you to the proper posts as soon as I can!
Happy hopping!
