Dude Time Doodles May New Release Blog Hop

Good Morning all you lovely bloggers!
It's the last Wednesday of the month & that means it's time for the 
Dude Time Doodles blog hop to 
showcase the new release images from 
If you've arrived from the awesome Dude Kevin's blog then 
you are on the right track!
If not don't fret, you can just hop on from here as it's a circle hop!
Make sure you leave a comment at each stop on the hop as  
the mystery host will be giving one lucky person a little prize!
Here's my card!

Patriotic huh! 
I am in a real Red White & blue mood right now!
The image is Roger Redskin! 
He & all the hop images will be available in store today!
He's cheering on his team like only Dude's do!
I did a simple card with a red square base.
The papers I have used have been in my stash forever!
The Happy Birthday DP is Papermania but I have no idea about the other!
I added a bit of ribbon, some buttons & bling!

Here's a closer look!
I coloured Roger with  a selection of promarkers, 
with a touch of copics & flex markers!
He sure looks like he's having fun!

The sentiment is by Create with TLC.

The inside of my card is decorated a little too!
I feel it helps with the balance as well as adding a bit of interest!
Thanks for stopping by!
Your next stop on the hop is the wonderfully talented Charlene
I'm sure you'll be glad you hopped on over!
Now, as always, I'll be getting some beauty sleep when this post goes live
so will update the links as soon as I can. 
In the meantime, I hope you find the hop posts okay!
Have fun!

What Colour Is Yours?

Good morning lovely bloggers!!!
It's Sunday again & time for the brand new challenge,
#172 at The Crafty Pad, where the theme is
"Colours Of Your Flag and/or Sketch"

I live in the UK so my flag is Red White & Blue

I'm not sure why but I really wanted to make a Christmas card for this one!

The cute little image is Christmas Ted Posting Letter
just one of  a series of Christmas Teds over at 
The sentiment ticket is from the Christmas Sentiment Ticket Set,
you get a set of  11 tickets for a mere £1.20!!!
here's the sketch before I forget!

I am such a doughnut I forgot all about the sketch when I was making my card!
Duh, it's such a fab sketch too!!!!
Our Sponsor this week is the lovely 

who is offering one lucky winner 
a fab £10 Voucher to spend in her awesome online store!

Heres a closer look at Ted!
I coloured him with promarkers & added some Diamond Sparkles Glitter.
Not sure you can pick it up on the photo!
I added a little border which was punched using a Martha Stewart punch.

I coloured one section of the ticket & added some glitter too.

The paper has been in my Christmas stash forever & is a 
download but I'm not sure where it's from.
You can just about see that I've decorated the inside of the card too 
but I've also forgot to take a picture of that! Doh!
A trio of buttons in the colours of my flag & a red organza 
ribbon bow finish off my little creation!
Thanks for popping in today!
I hope you can find the time to join us this week at The Crafty Pad.
