Let's Celebrate Our New Blog - "Creative Knockouts" Blog Hop

We have some exciting news at the Dutch Dare Card Challenge.  We are changing our name and look to "Creative Knockouts".  Why change you ask?  Well, Kelly more or less inherited the Dutch Dare and she would like to give it a fresh new look.  To celebrate we are having our first ever Blog Hop.  The design team has created some great cards using images from our fun sponsor this week Dr. Digi's House of Stamps.  We also have some blog candy available at some of the stops along the hop (see the bottom of this post).  So I hope you will get a chance to check out all the teams blogs and join us in this week's challenge.  If you have the time, we all would like a little love in the form of comments.  Let us know what you think of our new look!

On to our challenge this week.  The theme is Masculine, so get out those masculine images and add your "creative knockout" to the link for this week's challenge.  The rules are the same, so I hope you will be able to join us this week.

For my card I picked Dr. Digi's "Hole In One Hal".  I colored him with Copics, paper pieced his shorts and added some Glossy Accents to the visor.  The papers are from Echo Park's "This & That" collection.  The zigzag stripe was die cut using MFT's Chevron Stripes Die-namics and at the corners I added some black Liquid Pearls.  The sentiment was computer generated and the twine was from my stash.

If you are following the hop you would have come from Kelly's blog.  Next stop is Vicky, so I hope you are enjoying all the creations the Design Team has come up with this week.

Linda (that's me)
