Blog Hop Time at Dude Time Doodles

It's the last Wednesday of the month which means it's time for Bonibleaux Designs to showcase their new releases via this awesome Blog Hop. If you’ve arrived here from Cleota’s blog, you’re in the right place!
Now, on to some introductions, this here dude is Jimmy Gymnastic. I hold Jimmy close to my heart as I used to be a gymnast in my high school days. Although the vault reminds me of the time when I forgot to move the spring board before sprinting down the lane ... when I hit the spring board I probably looked like a frog in heat ... it was not a pretty sight!
Okay, back to Jimmy :) This was my first try at a tri shutter card and I have to say it's not as scary as the instructions looked! I used some random papers from my stash and by chance they all coordinated, fancy that! To give it a sporty look, I used eyelets and baker's twine to resemble shoe laces and threw some buttons in for good measure. The sentiment "This is what awesome looks like" is from Ginger's House, she has some incredible sentiments, make sure you check them out.
Now you can hop along over to Ruth and admire her work.
Keep in mind the Blog Hop doesn’t have a start or finish so no matter where you hop, you’re on the right track.
Just keep hopping along and visit all us Dudettes, remember one of us is the MYSTERY HOSTESS so make sure to leave some love cause you could win one of the new images just for commenting – you don’t wanna miss out on that!
If you get sidetracked along the way, here’s the list:
