Dude Time Doodles - 31 October Blog Hop with a Bang!

It's time for the last Wednesday of the Month Blog Hop over at Dude Time Doodles and usually we celebrate by showing off the new releases, however this month we are doing something a little different!  We are celebrating two years of Dude Time Doodles and I've been there from the start so the last two years really have gone fast!

And what better way to celebrate than to have a sale!  You'll find 50% off all Christmas images in the store from now until the 13 November!  I've used Tangled which is one of the images with 50% off!  And the main image in the store on the front page is one of my cards too!!!

We're still having the blog hop, so, if you've arrived at me from Kevin then you are on the right track although there is no start or finish point - just as long as you work your way through each of the blogs and leave us a comment at each point then you'll be in with a chance of winning! After you have left me a comment, pop over to Mags.

I've coloured my tangled guy with Promarkers plus the lights are all stickles - you just can't see it too well!  I've added a stamped sentiment (Papermania and shame on me - I've had the stamps over a year and just inked them up now!!) plus a Marianne Creatables snowflake.

Papers are from Funky Hand - Christmas Tree download which is part of the Oh Come All Ye Crafters collection, and the little dinky lights I've had for years and just like to look at them rather than use them.....!!

So good luck with the hop and hope you have a little shopping spree at the store - perfect for the pesky men at Christmas!

Such a fun card Ruth - reminds me of my house! Actually, if this happened to my DH, the whole thing would be out the window and we would have a nice shiny new pre-lit tree in its place - LOL! Wonderful card and so fun! Hugz!
