Dude Time Doodles - February New Release & Blog Hop!

It's the third Wednesday of the month so it is time for the Dude Time Doodles Blog Hop and a preview of the new releases for February!

For my card, I've used a Kraft card blank with an off-cut of corrugated card that I found in my stash. The garden twine adds that bit of male-ness to it! And the brads are Papermania.


The image is Harold Hammock and I've added my own computer generated sentiment. The image has been coloured with Promarkers and is great for those male cards or to send as a get well soon card too!


If you've arrived at my blog from Cleota then you are on the right track, although the hop does not have a start or end point, and if you get distracted you can always start from the beginning! One member of the Design Team will be chosen as the Mystery Hostess and a lucky commentator from that blog will win a Dude Time Doodles image! So, you never know - that Mystery Hostess could be me - you have to be in it to win it, so leave me a comment!!

You now need to hop over to Hetty!

This is the last time Nancy will be taking part with the Dudettes as she is stepping down from the team - we wish her well - and from me - thanks for all your support! We are welcoming Chrissy D as our Guest Designer - hello!!

Good luck!
