Blood Hound Christmas


Front of card - closed
Gate fold card - open
The end of October is already here and that means it's time for the Dude Time Doodles blog hop.  This month we are doing something a little different - we're having a 50% Off Anniversary Blog Hop just in time for Christmas.  There are over 35+ Christmas images in the DTD store that are 50% off starting at 10am EST.  The sale goes through 11/13 and no coupon code is needed.

One of the many images on sale is Bloodhound Christmas.  I've created a gate fold card with a belly band.  You can just see the tree peeking out when the card is closed.  Open it up to reveal the entire image and a couple more glittered ornaments.  (All three of the ornaments are part of the November Die-Versions release and will be available Nov 4.  You are getting a sneak peek!)   The frame is a Cheery Lynn Designs die and the gate fold openings were cut using a scalloped oval die from Lifestyle Crafts.  The background behind the image is a vintage book page.  Liquid Pearls were used to create dimensional ornaments on the tree itself.

As most of you know, the Dude Time Doodles blog hop is circular - no specific beginning or ending.  Just keep hopping around to all the Dude/Dudettes until you've hit each one of us.  As always, one of us is the Mystery Host.  Whoever leaves a comment with that Host will be the winner of a DTD image.  So be sure and leave comments with all of us.  Your next stop is Kevin.

Here's the hop order, just in case.  You'll definitely want to visit each of us to see more fabulous images that are on sale, not to mention lots of inspiration.

Start hopping and have fun.

Love that image, Anne! It so reminds me of childhood Christmases when the dog just had to climb the tree after the cats! We thought it loads of fun although our parents didn't seem nearly as impressed. LOL Great card!
