The very FIRST, ORIGINAL, INAUGURAL and FOUNDING Design Team here at Dude Time Doodles!

We just know that you are going to be AMAZED, AWED and BEDAZZLED by the talent in this group!

I'd like to introduce:

My name is NANCY and I live in Maryland. I am married to my soul mate and we have 5 children and 4 grandchildren. I have been card making for the past 3-4 years and love every minute of it. I love what the world of blogging has done for this craft. I have been crafting ever since I was a child and really love using products outside of their intended use. I hope to be able to inspire you to do the same thing.


Hi! I am THERESA. I am a mother of one 27year old son, been crafting forever now, i dabble in all sorts, but papercraft is my biggest love!!  I have used paper on wood, candles, stone, paper and more... love to try out more, but i simply adore humour, so my cards would mostly have a funny caption or something funny as a
Been blogging not long now, but enjoying it, wow, just need many more hours to the day!!


Hello, I am HETTY and I live in The Netherlands.

I am 54 years, married to Raymond and have
two daughters of 27 and 19. I am a teacher
in handicraft and primary school. Been stamping
for over 17 years and love to scrap too. I love
working with my computer and always in for new
and surprising artwork. Love to travel, read
and give workshops.


Hi I'm RUTH.  I love digital crafting - it takes up less space and I don't have to dust it (housework is evil!)  I've always messed around with bits of paper, glue and empty boxes so its a natural progression to move into papercrafting.  I enjoy crafting with a sense of humour and Dude Time Doodles is just that!  My two boys are my biggest fans and critics and they don't like pink or princesses so DTD will suit them down to the ground!

Hi I'm ANNE. I've been crafting in one form or another most of my life, but became much more dedicated to it when I began seriously scrapbooking about 10 or 11 years ago because I wanted to preserve our photos.  I also became a Wilton cake decorating instructor approximately 12 years ago and still love teaching.  In addition, I also teach scrapbooking classes (SDU certified by EK Success) and card making classes.   I'm also a Copic certified instructor and am looking forward to taking the intermediate certification classes when they become available in my area.  Copics are, by far, my favorite way of coloring an image.


G'Day, my name is GINNY and yes you guessed it, I'm from Downunder. Im a 41 year old married mum of 5 who is now living In Sydney, Australia after being a "bush baby" for many years. My boys are 23,19 & 16 and my girls 18 &6. I began scrapbooking whilst pregnant with my "surprise package" and even though it was hard getting supplies where I lived I soon became obsessed. Also a mad photographer I was never short of a subject for a layout. I drifted into cardmaking about 2 years ago and it has become my latest obsession with me being lucky enough to gain positions on several design teams I make cards most every day. Although with the newest addition of my 2 granddaughters in the last couple of years I am also dusting of my scrapbooking tools. I have a blog and everyday finds me "surfing" much to my hubby's chagrin. Looking forward to this new venture and becoming part of this wonderful new family. 

My name is "FINK" in the craft world.  I am an Ohio SAHM to Taylor (Sophomore) and Antonia (soon to be teen) and wife to James.  I am very lucky to have a hubby that supports my habit including shopping for me :)  I have been doing some form of crafting since I was a teen.  A few years ago I started papercrafting and card making.  I will admit it, once you make a homemade card they expect it each time.  Hence the card making I do!  LOL  Along with my crazy family, we have 3 dogs, 3 cats, 2 rabbits and 2 guinea pigs and I am allergic to pets!!!  Oh well :)

Hi I'm TAMMY I am the mother of five amazing children, five remarkable grandchildren, human to two beautiful golden retrievers, and friend to many.  Aside from sharing my home with golden retrievers, I am also surrounded by dust bunnies because I hate domestic chores of any kind and could probably write a book on excuses how not to do housework. I was a legal secretary for 20+ years but I am no longer employed so I have plenty of time to devote to making cards, my favorite time of day. 

My name is CLEOTA.  I live in Hendersonville Tennessee (just north of Nashville).  I've been crafting for...well, crafting all my life, but paper crafting and stamping since 1995 when a friend introduced me to rubber stamping.  I didn't dabble in it much, but always found the time to make Christmas cards.  Last year, after a couple years of not doing anything, I decided to make my sister a scrapbook for her 50th birthday.  That did it, I was back into it.  I bought a baby bug (Cricut) and haven't stopped.  Then I found digi stamps and haven't touched my rubbah stuff since. 

I have two sons and up until 8 years ago when I remarried and gained a daughter, I was the only female in the house.  Even the pets were male!!  So, I know all about guy stuff.  I am looking forward to being able to create some projects using guy images that aren't "girly-fied". 

My family consists of myself, my DH, two sons 20 and 17, and a daughter 13.  I work with my husband in his construction business and his firing range managing the paper / accounting side.  

Please join me in welcoming the AWESOME Dude Time Doodles Design Team!!!

Thank you!! 
The DTD Team
