An Elf-ing Christmas Card

It's New Release BLOG HOP time over at Dude Time Doodles!!!  Yeah!  So much fun and I just know you'll enjoy - so start HOPPING!  You'll see fabulous creations by the DT using all the new images from the Dude Time Doodles store. If you get lost along the way, just check into the Dude Time Doodles blog.



Nothing like a little poetry for the inside of this baby too!



This new release image is called Mooning Elf (by Marlene for Dude Time Doodles).  You just gotta love this little guy!  And in keeping with our "Think Pink" theme for the month I've decked him out in pink and green and just a tad of purple.  I used the snowflake embossing folder and some Paper Studio DP on this card.  I used a tiny little bell I found at Hobby Lobby on the end of his hat and a couple of rhinestones on the toes of his shoes.
Now come on - be honest - wouldn't you just love to send this card to a couple of folks on your Christmas card list!! LOL!

And now a very sad note:  This will be my last post on the Dude Time Doodles Design Team.  After almost a year, I've decided to step down in order to give someone else the opportunity to take my place and experience all the wonderful images.  Next time there's a DT call at Dude Time Doodles, consider throwing your name in the hat - I guarantee you'll have a load fun and will love all the rest of the DT members.
Thanks so much (again) to the DT and Boni for everything - I've had so much fun - and I won't quit using these fantastic images - so get ready to see more!

If you came from Michelle's blog, you're on the right track.  You next stop on the hop is NANA CONNIE.

Thanks for stopping by..........and have fun on the Hop
