Vinny Flytrap

 Can you believe it's already time for another Dude Time Doodles New Release?  My how time flies.  And speaking of flies.....meet Vinny Flytrap, one of our new Dudes.  He'll be available in the store by 10am EST.  He's at his wits end because his wife (whom he calls Ma) goes overboard with the Miracle Grow.  She thinks you can never add too much.

Vinny is colored with Copic markers and cut out using the Scrap-mart Labels 1 die by Spellbinders. I added Stampendous' pearlized mica fragments for the dirt mound to give it a bit of bling.  The mat was cut with Spellbinders and then embossed with a Sizzix embossing folder.

You should have come from CG, but no worries if you didn't.  The blog hop is a circular blog hop, meaning there is no correct beginning.  Just keep going around until you have visited all of the Dude/Dudettes.  Be sure to leave a comment with each of us, as one of us is the Mystery Host.  The winner will be chosen from comments left with that Mystery Host.   Your next stop will be Rachel.  Here's the list of everyone playing along, just in case:

Anne (that's me)
