Dude Time Doodles New Release BLOG LEAP

Welcome to your first stop on the Dude Time Doodles New Release Blog Hop Leap (Happy Leap Year!) The Design Team is featuring three fantastic new DTD images: Father Flanagan, Wes Wrestler, Jon Jogger, and Billy Amish.

Here's the hop order:
CG (You're here)
Ruth (Next stop)
Dude Time Doodles

One of the Dudettes - or Dude - will be named our MYSTERY HOST at the end of the hop and one lucky person who comments on that blog will win a free Dude Time Doodles image of their choice; So be sure to comment on each blog. You have a whole week to hop, I mean leap (through next Tuesday)!

I used Jon Jogger to create a motivational card:

The Sky background & Attitude Quote are freebies from Create with TLC. I created the scene in PhotoShop (I added a slight green hue to the sentiment), but I did reprint Jon and piece him on top after coloring him with Copics. The sentiment is printed directly onto the background. I printed everything onto some beautiful artist paper I had in my stash. I used DTD's Winner's Ribbon for the inside.

I was inspired by the staples in the sentiment image, so I used actually staples as an embellishment. Precision stapling isn't as easy as you might think!

Thanks so much for stopping by! Your next stop is the fabulous Ruth!
