March Inspirational Challenge

Top of the morning to ya!

We want to start today's Inspiration Challenge with a HUGE shout-out to Theresa who is turning 25 today (hehehe)!!! Theresa we love you and hope you have the bestest 25th birthday EVAH!!

I hope all of you are having a wonderful day. All of the Dude Time Doodles Dudettes are glad that you've stopped by today. We're getting our green shirts pressed, green jewelry shined, and our green nickers washed and ready to wear tomorrow so we don't get pinched!

It's Cleota and I'm back with another challenge. This time, I've upped my game a bit, because I could feel the Dudettes itching for something to sink their teeth in to. Oh, they moaned and groaned about it, but I can't wait to show you what they've created to inspire you this month. I am very proud of them for stepping up, accepting the challenge, and seriously outdoing themselves.

Here's your color and photo inspiration:

And to give a little twist to the challenge, you must make an easel card. Here are a couple links for tutorials if you've never made one before...

So, there you have it. My challenge for this month is to make an easel card using the photo and color inspiration above. As I said before, the design team has really outdone themselves with this challenge and here is what they've created.

Tammy has chosen Jose Hosed to cheer a special someone on their birthday. Awesome how she's punched out some grass as trim.

Waylon Waves inspired Theresa to make some waves of her own. The seashells are a perfect touch.

KO Kurt and Ruth are hoping for more chocolate and less lemons. A great sentiment to brighten someone's day.

Shamus Shamrock is helping Lynn ring in St. Patty's Day. Lucky coins help the easel stand up.

Grease Monkey Mike is making Anne happy. Wonderful brickyard she's created as the background.

Boni and Chef Burly Becky are having a party. I wonder what will be served?

Cleota (that's me) likes a cold beer as much as Shamus Shamrock. Ever had green beer on St. Patrick's Day?

Bobby Bubbles brings out Chrissy's wicked sense of humor. The layout on this card is super cool.

Hetty has been set adrift with Driftin' Denton. Looks like a great way to relax the day away.

Ginny has the luck of the Irish with Shamus Shamrock at her side. Someone will be lucky to receive this card!

Guest Design Team Member Crystal has Cowpoke Cal on her wanted list. 

Everyone, please wish Fink a quick recovery from a nasty fall that injured her wrist last week.

What an awe inspiring job these ladies have done this month!! Like I said, I am very proud of them. Some of them have never made an easel card before and they seriously rocked this challenge. Be sure to visit each Dudette's blog and leave them some love. They definitely deserve to know they've inspired you this month.

Now it's your turn.


1. Use the photo / color inspiration and Dudette creations above to get your mojo moving. 

2. You are not required to use BDD images although it would make us really really happy and giggle a lot if you did! 

3. MUST be a masculine themed card, you can use humor, innuendo, be a little naughty, sarcastic, but it has got to be for a DUDE!

4. Be sure to use the InLinkz below to submit your creation.

You have until Tuesday, March 22nd to upload your project using InLinkz below. We'll be announcing the winners right here later that evening. 

In the spirit of St. Patrick's Day, I'd like to leave you with an Irish blessing...

May your feet never sweat,
your neighbor give you ne're a treat.
When flowers bloom, I hope you'll not sneeze,
and may you always have someone to squeeze!

hee hee Sorry, I couldn't resist.

Seriously...May the sun shine all day long,
everything go right, and nothing wrong.
May those you love bring love back to you,
and may all the wishes you wish come true!

Thank you! 
Dude Time Doodles
