December New Release Blog Hop

Howdee! Howdee!! Howdee!!!

I sure hope everyone had a wonderfully filling and restful Thanksgiving!  Now we're on the downhill slide for the year and the uphill climb to get ready for the holidays.

Today we take some time from our busy schedules to introduce you to the new Dudeville citizens.  First to arrive to the red carpet is Abner Abominable, who we all know is far from abominable, because he's such a ladies man.  Fanny Skibum is fresh off the slopes.  Harold HoHoZzz is resting off his Thanksgiving feast while Gabe Gretna is arguing with the ref on TV.  And from far across the pond we have Welder Wenceslas.

We would also like to introduce you to a new member of our design team.  You knew her last month as our guest designer, but we've enjoyed her company so much we've decided to ask her to stick around for a while.  That's right, CG has joined our little family.  

Please welcome her with open arms and leave her lots of love as she embarks on a crazy journey with the rest of the Dudettes and the Dude!  She's gonna need it.  heehee

Now it's time to hop!  Grab your burlap sack, climb inside, and start hopping over to visit with CG.

Just in case you get lost amid the gorgeous creations, you can always come back here and pick up where you left off.


Be sure to leave some love at each stop.  As always 
we'll announce a MYSTERY HOSTESS at the end of the hop and one lucky commenter will win an image of their choice.

You'll want to be sure and visit us often during the month of December as we have gifts to give away for the winners of our challenges this month!

Thank you!

Hello, Hello, Hello! 
So glad you could join us because we have something special to share with you today! Since we have an extra Wednesday this month, we invited someone noteworthy to be our Guest Spotlight Designer, someone who loves Dude Time Doodles' images and someone I'm sure you are familiar because of her awesome talent and quirky humor.  By now you are probably jumping out of your seat to find out who that is! Well, I'll tell you, JEANIE WITMER, we all love her and know her as the "The Spotted Chick" and if you make the trip to her blog you will receive a warm welcome of "mornin' hens" and that the stopover will be an occasion for knee-slapping and laughing out loud! 

Hi there!  My name is Jeanie Witmer aka: The Spotted Chick.  I live in sunny Southern Florida with my hubby.  We have a lovely daughter who is 26 years old and is our PRIDE and JOY. 
I've been a crafter all my life but my paper crafting addiction started out with scrapbooking in 2003.  A few years later, I attended a Scrapbooking Expo with a friend and I subscribed to a monthly card kit club. 
Each month I received a card kit AND a stamp!  Well, say no more - GOOD BYE Scrapbooking, HELLO Cardmaking!!  Seriously, I was hooked!  My daughter finally encouraged me to start my own blog and
the rest is history.  It's been so much fun sharing my love for this hobby with all the "hens in the hen house!"  Needless to say, I'm one proud CHICK to be in the spotlight here at Dude Times Doodles!  {{{hen hugs}}}

Just in time for Thanksgiving, The Spotted Chick used Heath Hunter from Bonibleaux Designs. Unfortunately, Heath still has not returned home so if you see him, please tell him his wife is waiting to cook the turkey! 

Hope you enjoyed the visit with Jeanie. Please leave her some love and by all means, have a wonderful Thanksgiving!

Thank you!

November Inspirational Challenge

Hello! Hello!!  Hello!!!

I'm so glad you've come for a visit today.  The Dude and Dudettes have truly out done themselves with my little challenge this week and I can't wait to show off their creations.

First, here's the challenge.  Use the below photo to inspire your creation.  Use the colors, the images, the sentiment.  Whatever you wish out of the photo, but you have to follow...


1. Use the photo / color inspiration and the Dude 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. You can use humor, innuendo, be a little naughty, sarcastic.  As long as your project is masculine

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

This month, we have an awesome new sponsor.

Graphicat Designs is a Brand New website full of some of your favorite things. Not only do we carry our own unique blend of sarcasm based sentiments and fun images, but we are the Canadian retailer for some fabulous other stamp companies such as Tickled Pink, Simply Betty and Whimsy Stamps.

Graphicat Designs is Proud to sponsor Dude Time Doodles, a fellow stamp company with images that match our sarcastic ways at Graphicat!

The winner will receive a Sushi Stamp Set from Graphicat Designs, pictured here:

Is that not absolutely awesome!  I know exactly what image those digi sentiments would go famously with!!

Now, let's take a look at the the Dude and Dudette's creations.

Dawn has paper pieced Fanny Thanks hair and dress in her fantastic easel card.

Fanny Thanks is looking fabulous in another paper pieced creation by Anne.

CG used Bountiful Blessings for her colorful card.

Arnie Armchair is looking like he's took the inspiration sentiment to heart in Ginny's fabulous piece.

Kevin's embellished with some beautiful feathers to accent Fanny Thanks golden delicious turkey.

Hippie Rocker looks like he might have had a little too much red wine with his Thanksgiving dinner in Linda's easel card.

Cleota has Patty Pilgrim serving up some scrumptious hot apple pie (and she followed the current Graphicat Design Challenge sketch)!!

Tom Tom Turkey has seen too many Chick-fil-a commercials and wants everyone to eat pizza for Thanksgiving in Michelle's creation.

Fanny Thanks is so thoughtful in Ruth's delightfully red greeting.

Tammy's brightly colored Bountiful Blessings creation looks good enough to gobble!!

So there you have it!  All the inspiration one could ever ask for.  Now grab a cup of hot cocoa (go ahead and add the mini marshmallows - it's fun), your favorite crafting products and creation to your hearts content.

Just be sure you link up your project with Mr. Linky below before next Tuesday evening at 8 PM for a chance to win sentiment stamp set from Graphicat Designs!!

Thank you!
