March Inspirational Challenge

Howdy Pardner!!

So glad you joined us today.  This week we're celebrating Cowboys.  Everything about cowboys hollers masculine.  From their jingling spurs to their ten gallon hats.  Their six shooters to their roping lassos.  They have big hearts and look really good when they ride up on their white horses.  

Our sponsor this week is the fantastic PaperTemptress.    You can find all of your crafting paper needs here.  From the standard cardstock to your drop dead goregous linens.

Your challenge, should you choose to accept it (Yeah, threw a little Mission Impossible at ya there.), is to use the colors and elements in the photo below to create a masculine card or project with a cowboy in mind.  

Your prize for winning the challenge is a $20 gift certificate to PaperTemptress!!!  

Everyone has a little cowboy in them.  Let's see how the Dudette's and our one Dude can cowboy up.

Dawn has created a serene scene with Cactus Kirk, awesome papers and a great charm with a cool font for her sentiment.

Ruth used CowPoke Cal and one of the accompanying sentiments for a great birthday card with kraft paper and gold stars. 

Anne used a lot of twine (along the edges of the card, the star and Cal's hat band) on her great six-shooter card with CowPoke Cal, bright color cardstock and silver six-shooters cutouts.

Rodeo Randy is the center piece of Tammy's card with fabulous papers, textures and funny sentiment.  

Cactus Kirk is back in Kevin's cowboy creation with gold stars and cool green gingham paper.

C Bizkit is having a hard time remembering the hill in Michelle's great birthday card with brown twine, great paper choices and a super layout.

Looks like Deputy Dave is having a swinging good time in CG's beautiful card with Deputy badge accents.

One of this month's guest designers, Crafty Girl, created a great birthday card using CowPoke Cal and some dimensional stars.

Sharon, our Aussie guest designer, proves that cowboys aren't only in America with her cool card using Super Trooper Tripp, deputy badges and lasso.

Now it's your turn to prove you can cowboy up!!  Follow the rules, link your cowboy creation using the InLinkz tool below before March 27th at 8 PM EST and you could be the winner of the $20 gift certificate from

The Rules

1. Use the inspirational photo above and the Dude and Dudette creations 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

And now to introduce our guest designers for the month of March that have more than crafting in common, they both share the last name of Rogers! Welcome ladies!
Hi, I am CraftyGirl (not my given name).  I am originally from New Jersey but now live in Virginia Beach Virginia with my loving and supportive husband for over 25 years.  We have two basset hounds (Romeo and Juliet) and a cat (Sir Die Hard).  I think I was born crafting and come but it honestly since my mom was the queen of crafts.  She taught me most of what she knew and all of what I know about life and crafts.  I love working with paper and am passionate about making cards. 
Grim Grisham
I’m Sharon and I live in the Land Down Under!!! I have been crafting for at least half my life and love all sorts of paper and fabric crafts. I love to make my own background paper, I love collage, beautiful papers & embellishments – anything at all really and I love all styles as well. I’m excited to be a Guest Designer at Dude Time Doodles as I actually have an occupation that is considered “male orientated” so I can certainly relate to all these Masculine images LOL and they are fantastic for those hard to make for people (men)!! I’m looking forward to the challenges this month and can’t wait to see what everyone comes up with!

Lawrence of Lawn
That's all for today, link your creation below and we'll see you back here next week to announce the winner on Tuesday, March 13th, not at the same time though since we change our clocks this weekend! YIPPEE!

Thank you!
