We did it! We have hit the official one month mark for Dude Time Doodles and Bonibleaux Designs has pulled out all the stops for the New Release Blog Hop this month!  
[Bonibleaux Designs Aaron Aeronautic]

Aaron Aeronautic was inspired by a story submitted by Priscilla Styles (you should all know Priscilla from Midnight Madness???!!!) Priscilla asked for an image of a guy flying and crashing remote control airplanes, ergo Aaron!! LOL

A great tutorial to create this very cool display can be found HERE.

You will see all of the new release digis worked up for your viewing pleasure and be able to purchase any of the new images today in the store!
We're doing something different with the Blog Hop this week and that is that one of the Design Team Members will be secretly chosen as the "MYSTERY HOSTESS" of the blog hop and one lucky commenter will receive a 
Free full set of New Release BDD digital images $30 value

This Blog Hop does not have a starting and ending point so no matter where you HOP on you are in the right place. Just keep going. Don't forget to leave some love everywhere you land, including here! Once you have gone full circle you have completed the Hop.
We are so excited to link you to Miss Ginny next!
We hope you like what you see! We certainly had a blast putting it together for you!!

Don't forget all of the images you see will be for sale in the Store by 10:00 a.m. EST today!

[in case you get distracted by all the art]

We want to give a special shout out to our Dude Lovin' Pal - Sassy Say'ns by Marlooney - this gal is rockin' when it comes to thinkin' up sentiments to go with our dudes - check out her post HERE and you'll understand what I'm talking about! WE LOVE HER!!

And saving the best for last is what we do here! We are so pleased to share our Guest Designer for December with you:  LYNN

Hi, my name is Lynn Hayes and I live in a very small town in  Texas.  I'm married with two grown children, two granddaughters, and another little one due in February.  After 24 years in the work force, I retired as a Pre Trial Probation Officer.  I love being retired as it gives me the chance to do things I love - like fishing, gardening, and paper crafts.  I've only had my blog up for a little over a year, but have been making cards for almost two years.  I orginally thought I'd save money making my own cards!  That didn't happen - but I do love making them and think people enjoy something "hand made". 
I'm very honored and so excited about being the Guest Designer for Dude Time Doodles for the month of December.

Thank you!!

I grew up in a family of artists and art collectors, 
and I've been creating ever since I can remember myself.
I love painting, jewelry designing, scrapbooking, 
altered art and mixed media art. And chocolate, of course.
I have a constant urge to create something new every day.
It sure is better than maintaining what already exists!

Operation Write Home Blog Hop

I first started sending cards to soldiers back in 1998.  It was a different program then and you sent cards to troops who were stationed overseas and couldn't make it home for the holidays, or didn't receive much mail.  I still to this day have a penpal from those days - we have been writing to each other for the last 12 years. We have never met in person as he is always going in the opposite direction with the military LOL.  When my son joined the USMC this penpal wrote letters to my son encouraging him.  I am very thankful for programs like Operation Write Home that allow "us" the civilians a chance to show our gratitude, support and well wishes for our freedom defenders!

The blog hop this weekend is for making and sending Valentine cards to the troops that they may send them back to their loved ones. Our military personnel don't always get to shop for cards for the holidays and special occasions. Heck sometimes they only have pencil stubs to write with. OWH sends 100's of thousands of cards to our troops so that they may send a special one of a kind handmade card home to their loved ones for birthdays, anniversary, Christmas and now Valentine's Day. The Christmas wishlist for cards is full so we are concentrating on Valentine Cards until January 7, 2011.

Dude Time Doodles is proud to get this opportunity to share our love and support with those away from home, defending our country and fighting for our freedom. 

I used Count Vladimir for my Valentine Card today. It is a swing card - the tutorial is HERE.  

Created two cards - she's so feeling the love she got totally groovy with Gary Giftbearer and Hippie Rocker.     

Used Gary Giftbearer on a really cool patchwork background. Cleota nicknamed Gary "Gump", gee I wonder why?

Was blown away by the muscles on Henry Hero. Although her card indicates that perhaps Henry spent some time participating in activities that may well have gotten him in a bit of trouble.

Made Gary Giftbearer quite unique by replacing the gift he was holding with a handmade Valentine. Ah Gary is such a mushy fellow.

Has Football Phil running for the last 20 yards right in to your heart! 

If you made it here from Nancy's Scrap Happens then you are on the right trail......NEXT you'll be heading to Dana's Scrap Therapy - who doesn't need therapy right? After all this sugar sweetness Valentine Hop we are all going to need some!

Here are a few rules if you would like to participate in OWH:

-A valentine card (absolutely no glitter that will flake off of your project)
-The valentines deadline: Jan 7th
-No Christmas cards. Christmas deadline is passed
-JoAnn's Fabric is giving away $50,000 in their Craft for a Cause promotion.  PLEASE VOTE DAILY at Joanns Voting begins November 7 and ends 11:59:59 P.M. EST on December 4, 2010. Limit one vote per person/e-mail address per 24-hour period.
