Howdy  y'all!!

Welcome to Dude Time Doodles May New Release Blog Hop.  Bonibleaux Designs and The Dudettes have a lot of awesome projects in store for you today! 

Our Ginsu knife wielding chef Benny Hanna will get us started.  We will also be visiting with Gladys Salt our Dudeville Hollow Holla gossipmonger.  Serenaded by the banjo picking Cletus.  Be taken for a ride on the fast and furious C BisKit. And last but not least, have a cup of joe on the trail with our tumbling tumbleweed Cactus Kirk.

As we circle round on the blog hop, we'll be saying sayounara to Suzy, our Guest Designer for the month of April.  She has submitted some great inspirational projects and was a *hoot* to have around.  We wish her continued success in blogland, hope she'll continue to join in the challenges and visit us often.

As we say au revoir to one, we also say howdy! to another.  Please join us in welcoming Shirley G to the team.  She is our Guest Designer for May.  The Dudettes can't wait to see what she has up her sleeve.

Our Blog Hop has no beginning or end.  So, no matter where you jump on just go full circle and you'll see it all.  Be sure to leave some love everywhere you go, because there will be a MYSTERY HOSTESS revealed next week and one lucky commenter will win a free image from the release or an image of their choice!!

Here's the links to The Dudettes:

Be sure to visit the Store and get your favorite images today!  

Boni and The Dudettes are sure glad you stopped in for a visit.  Be sure to come back next Wednesday for our sketch challenge.

April Inspirational Challenge




The current edition of The Dudeville Hollow Holla is in the right hand sidebar.  There's plenty of breaking news, sports, and juicy gossip to have you doubled over with laughter. 

Hello!! and welcome to April's Inspirational Challenge! I'm Cleota, your hostess.  I hope everyone is having a beautiful Spring day and is having a wonderful Passover and Easter week (if you celebrate).

Now to this week's challenge...
Your photo / color inspiration for this month is

The Dudettes have created some gorgeous projects to inspire you this month.  Let's get started viewing them.

Earl Bunny is getting a little tired of having to wear the bunny suit each year.  Hopefully, Lynn can find someone else to fill his shoes.  Love that baker's twine button.

Anne and Downtown Delmar are wanting to take things a little slower.  With Spring finally in the air, I don't blame them one bit.  Purple is my favorite!! 

With NASCAR in full swing, Boni might need to keep a close eye on Gordon Leadfoot.  We all know how he loves to race.  Fantastic background papers. 

Ruth wanted Driftin Denton to help with the Spring cleaning, but he had other ideas.  Maybe he'll get home in time for dinner tonight.  Awesome clean and simple card with a great embellishment.

Tammy has Guinness Gwen judging beer brewing contests!  Good choice as Gwen loves beer.  Great gingham background paper.

Nicky Lotsaspaghetti is all dressed up for a night on the town.  Cleota (that's me) will make sure he leaves his gun at home!!  Cute LEGO paper!!

Our Guest Designer, Suzy, combined Santi Beaches with Ice Bucket to create this great scene.  Santi looks very relaxed and tanned.  Great sentiment!

I think all of you can agree that the Dudette's creations get better and better with every challenge.  Please use their creations to create your own dude project and link up below before the deadline.


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, April 26th to upload your project using InLinkz below. We'll be announcing the winners right here later that evening.

Thank you!
