    YIPPEE SKIPPY, it's my favorite time of the month when the Dudettes gather to show you all the new releases from Bonibleaux Designs. We are always happy when new residents come to join our family. And speaking of expanding our family, did you see that Dude Time Doodles is having an Open Design Team Call? Now's your chance to join our awesome team and have some fun. You have until June 15 to send us your artwork. Click on the link at the top of the blog for all the details. 

    Before we start tickling your funny bone, did you know as an added bonus for being a follower, that Stamp-by-Step offers a 10% discount? Use the discount code and link on our sidebar. 

    Okay, I say enough business, lets get on with the fun. 
    Cleota, get out the drums and start drumming, although we do have a new member joining our Dude Time Doodles band, SKEETER that might wish to take over! His brand new upside-down wash tub was delivered by FRED ECCX, surprisingly, it came intact and well tuned and perhaps Skeeter is too. 
    Skeeter - Ginny
    For sure you will love Robert Hood, our esteemed archer and Luky Strike, the winningest pitcher in baseball's history!  Lastly, if you are looking for a new hair stylist, you will want to schedule an appointment with the flamboyant hairdresser of the stars, Stylin Stew, who is aiming his hairdryer at you. 

    Now off with you, your first stop is Dudette Anne to see what she's created. Don't forget  one of the Dudettes is this month's Mystery Hostess so be sure to follow along the hop and leave some love at each stop. When you get to Hetty be sure to leave her some extra love since she is stepping down as a Dudette. The hop is a loop so you can start and finish as you like but if you get lost, here is the link list.
    Thank you!

    May 25th Inspirational Challenge


    Welcome to our inspirational challenge for May. 
    I'm Cleota, your hostess.  Have I got an awesome photo / color inspiration for you this month. 

    We're getting closer to the end of May and that means the end of the school year for a lot of kids, graduation parties, and coming vacations!  If you haven't made your vacation plans yet, then this month's photo inspiration may help get you jumped started.

    If this doesn't make you think of doing the hula, wearing flowers in your hair, sitting on the beach and having a drink with a little umbrella, then I don't know what will!

    Let's see how the photo inspired the Dudettes (the design team):

    Anne has created a wonderful vacation spot for Henry Hero to bask in the sun. 
    Henry Hero
    Lynn has combined two great images for her All Star card. 
    BBall Barry & Sheriff Star
    Looks like Tammy will be having a potluck dinner at her house! 
    Chef Burly Becky
    Ginny must feel a need to get some grease under her fingernails!
    Grease Monkey Mike
    Hetty is tempting everyone's sweet tooth.
    Gladys Salt
     Cleota(that's me) is channelling her adventurous side!
    Skip Sk8tr
     These are great words of encouragement from Ruth.
    Henry Hero
     Hopefully Shirley (our guest designer) will be able to get things straight soon.
    Golfin' Greg

    And for the legal part...

    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.

    Be sure to visit the Dudette's blogs and leave them some love.  Then come back here and link up your project before next Tuesday evening, May 24th.

    Thank you!

    When I asked Shirley for a short bio of herself this is what she had to say:

    "hmm bio, Well...My name is Shirley Galvan and I live in So. IL along with several feline friends. I have three grown, all married children and one grandchild. I have been making cards on a regular basis for about 15 months or so. But it quickly became a BIG obsession. I think I need a 10 step program! :) I mostly use digital images for my cards. I like them because they can be resized for what is needed on any given project."

    Thanks for stopping by today and be sure to check back on the Wednesday, May 11th for the Freebie Guest Spot Challenge.
