Let's Go To The Hop!

Good Morning all you lovely bloggers!
It's the last Wednesday of the month, which means it's new release time at
Are you ready to welcome the new residents of
If you're hopping around, you should have come to me directly from
If not, don't worry, it's a circle hop with no particular start & finish.
Just keep hopping till you get back to where you started 
so you don't miss out on any of the fun!
Don't forget to leave a comment at each stop as there will be a 
Mystery Host/Hostess along the way with a little prize for someone!
Without further ado, here's my card!

Give "Yo Jimi" a great big Dudeville Hollow welcome!
He's a superstar & he knows it!
Although he's maybe not as young as he thinks he is! lol
I put Jimi on a square card base made in black cardstock.
The DP's I have used were part of a Mystery Parcel I bought last week
from Sarah Wright  so I have no idea where they are from. If I had to guess,
I'd say they are possibly Papermania

Jimi  Rocks!
I coloured him up with a mixture of Flexmarkers & Promarkers.
Next I fussy cut him out & adhered to some black cardstock!
I added a few little star charms, from my stash, to embellish.

I made the sentiment in my graphics programme.

I decorated the inside too but I didn't get a pic of it.
Now it's time to hop on!
From here you want to hop on over to visit Nancy!
I know she has something amazing for you to see!

I've decided to add my sentiment as a Freebie if you'd like it!

Please don't share, but feel free to send your friends over to pick it up.
let me know if you use it & I'll visit your blog!
