***********************
I am sad to say that this is my last post for DudeTime Doodles. I have decided to step down. I want to thank Boni and the Dudettes. You all are amazing and very sweet. Thank you for such great images Boni to play with each week. I love all of them....

here's what I came up with. I used these fun images (Brad Ball and Chain and Breast Cancer Girl ) and made a Valentine's Day Gift Hat with a pull out tag for saying.... the flower is a zipper...Spellbinders dies, EK Success circle punch, Recollections border punch, Lil Davis wooden numbers, Making Memories adore metal tag and metal rose and some odds and ends from my stash.....

and lookie--here he is...Mr. Brad Ball and Chain in all his glory...lol....I really love his expression....he's a new image that you can purchase from the store.....

here's the opening...I used a flower that I made from scoring a 12" x 3/4" piece of cardstock and score at 1/2" all the way down....then just mountain/valley fold and flip down to make the flower....I made two of these....the bottom is held together with brads....this let's it open and I used one for the front to, but I am rethinking that...not the best closure....
here's the greeting on the inside...
here's a closer view of the zipper flower...I just cut off the bottom of the zipper, and rolled both pieces (back to back) into the flower and glue to a 1" circle punch....I also added a metal swirl clip and a Tim Holtz button....
and here the back where the tag pulls out from....you pull the flower up....
I also added a zipper that you can pull down for the tag as well.... tag and the zipper pulled down.... here's my concoction that I hung from the zipper pull....I love me some Tim Holtz Products....lol....I used the little memo pin and twisted it to use as a hanger....I also hung an acrylic hearts on fishing line and sandwiched it between 2 layers of the metal sprockets...
here's what the metal memo pins look like....
*******************
Well I hope you enjoy your hop. Next up on the list is the vary sweet Tammy....make sure you stop by and see what she's made for your eye candy......Thanks for stopping in today...Hugs from Charm City........
