August New Release Blog Hop

Can you believe it's the last Wednesday in August?  Summer's coming to a close and this coming weekend is  Labor Day in the US.  That means trying to fit all your last minute summer activities in before it gets too cold to spend your days outside.  In honor of the fleeting days of summer, three new dudes have come to join in on the festivities: Joey Three Fingers, Grilling Gil, and Sandy Beaches.

Here's a preview of what's to come from Mags

So sit back, relax, and start hopping.  If you're new to Dude Time Doodles, our hop is circular - meaning there is no specific starting or ending place.  Just hop along and leave a comment along the way until you've gone full circle.  One of the Dude/Dudettes is the Mystery Host and the winner of a DTD image will be chosen from that Host's comments.  Your next stop should be Sharon.

Here's the complete list for your viewing pleasure:

Janet, our guest designer

Dude Time Doodles is a proud sponsor for the Jen Scull Charity Blog Hop that starts today and goes until Sept 4th.  For complete details and a chance to win a prize from DTD, please visit Paper Makeup Stamps blog or Party Time Tuesdays Challenge blog.   The blog hop starts at Paper Makeup Stamps and 100% of the proceeds will go to Jen and her family to help with medical expenses, etc.  

Thanks for joining us today at Dude Time Doodles.  Enjoy the hop and come back next week for the First Wednesday challenge.

Thank you!

Glad to have you join us today in time to grab this month's freebie and join the August's Guest Designer/Freebie Challenge! August is extra special to the team because it has five Wednesdays and that means the Dude and the Dudettes get a week off (with pay of course) and it gives you TWO weeks to join the challenge! 

Because the kiddos are almost back to school, you are probably noticing that scholastic sports has taken precedence over mealtime with the family not to mention your life, why not ease the pain by making a card appropriate for the game using 
Youth Football!
You are encouraged to use him to create a card for a special dude in your life and maybe you will be Dude Time Doodles' Guest Designer for September. 
To play along 

1. Use the freebie image above in a humorous creation for a DUDE of astounding creativity and ingenuity (hehehe no pressure)

2. Submit a photo of your creation via InLinkz cache below

3. And on August 21st we will announce who will be our Guest Designer for September.

4. Spread the word - you only have two weeks - this will be a monthly event so be sure to come back on the 2nd Wednesday of each month and play again!

****NOTE: Please do not share the actual image posted above, but rather send your friends back via link to pick it up. All images are copyright of Bonibleaux Designs and are not intended for resale or swapping without explicit permission by owner. 

Thank you.**** 

The team has once again rocked the challenge to motivate your participation! 

Thank you!

Happy first day of August, the "hang in there school will be starting soon" month when you will be free to craft! Hopefully you can find time to join us for August's First Wednesday Challenge that starts today, 
Entering is easy, create a card for a dude involving travel, then use InLinkz below to post your creation. The winner will be announced next Tuesday, August 7th and will receive their choice of three images from 

Since our own Dude is still recovering from surgery and is unable to play along, the Dudettes must share their creations and provide the inspiration all by themselves! 

Meet our Guest Designer for August,
My name is Janet Babar and I retired early from the NHS, where I worked in Physiotherapy. I have always been interested in making things, encouraged by my Mum, who was a fantastic knitter and my Grandmother who sewed, crocheted and painted. Until a few years ago, I was always knitting and sewing, I even had a knitting machine for a time and designed and made my own garments, but now have no time as making cards has taken over my life (and my long suffering Husband). In 2005 while on holiday in Cuba, I met a wonderful lady who made cards and listening to her talk about it, sparked my interest, she came to stay a few weeks later, took me to a craft shop and the rest is history. She has inspired me since. In February this year I started a blog, and things have just escalated since, I am now on the DT for lejdesigns, Whoopsidaisy, and one I cannot mention yet! When Dude Time Doodles asked me to be the Guest Designer for August I couldn't say no since I love all their fun images. I hope you like my cards that I make for this month and that they inspire you to have a go at the challenges.

That's all for today, now get busy and create something for a dude and think travel

Thank you!
