Hang onto your seats, you are in for a fun ride. The last Wednesday of each month is set aside for our New Release Blog Hop and just like last month, you are not going to believe what Bonibleaux Designs has in store for you. 

Guinness Gwen by Boni
The lovely Guinness Gwen starts the hop and you are going to get your funny bone tickled when you see Earl Bunny (just in time to make that special Dude's Easter card), followed by the outlandish Arnie in the Loo. And for all you RACING fans, we are introducing Gordon Leadfoot and Dale Isenhardt. See which one of these handsome men is showing off their ride.

Before you go, all the Dudettes join me in wishing Crystal, this month's Guest Designer, a fond farewell and thank her for joining us in our fun and contributing such inspiring creations.  

But, as we say goodbye to Crystal, we give a warm hello to Ike, April's Guest Designer. We cannot wait to see what she has in store for us. 

Until next Wednesday, we say so long and please follow the fun on the hop. There is no beginning and no end so you can start wherever you wish. Be sure to leave some love along the way in case your name is drawn as a winner from the blog of the "Mystery Hostess". Unfortunately, Fink's injured wrist is preventing her from joining us today but hopefully, she'll be back soon. 

Here's the list of links. Enjoy!

We hope you enjoy yourself!  Be sure to visit the STORE to pick up your new releases today! The Dudettes are definitely glad you stopped by.

Thank you!

March Inspirational Challenge

Top of the morning to ya!

We want to start today's Inspiration Challenge with a HUGE shout-out to Theresa who is turning 25 today (hehehe)!!! Theresa we love you and hope you have the bestest 25th birthday EVAH!!

I hope all of you are having a wonderful day. All of the Dude Time Doodles Dudettes are glad that you've stopped by today. We're getting our green shirts pressed, green jewelry shined, and our green nickers washed and ready to wear tomorrow so we don't get pinched!

It's Cleota and I'm back with another challenge. This time, I've upped my game a bit, because I could feel the Dudettes itching for something to sink their teeth in to. Oh, they moaned and groaned about it, but I can't wait to show you what they've created to inspire you this month. I am very proud of them for stepping up, accepting the challenge, and seriously outdoing themselves.

Here's your color and photo inspiration:

And to give a little twist to the challenge, you must make an easel card. Here are a couple links for tutorials if you've never made one before...

So, there you have it. My challenge for this month is to make an easel card using the photo and color inspiration above. As I said before, the design team has really outdone themselves with this challenge and here is what they've created.

Tammy has chosen Jose Hosed to cheer a special someone on their birthday. Awesome how she's punched out some grass as trim.

Waylon Waves inspired Theresa to make some waves of her own. The seashells are a perfect touch.

KO Kurt and Ruth are hoping for more chocolate and less lemons. A great sentiment to brighten someone's day.

Shamus Shamrock is helping Lynn ring in St. Patty's Day. Lucky coins help the easel stand up.

Grease Monkey Mike is making Anne happy. Wonderful brickyard she's created as the background.

Boni and Chef Burly Becky are having a party. I wonder what will be served?

Cleota (that's me) likes a cold beer as much as Shamus Shamrock. Ever had green beer on St. Patrick's Day?

Bobby Bubbles brings out Chrissy's wicked sense of humor. The layout on this card is super cool.

Hetty has been set adrift with Driftin' Denton. Looks like a great way to relax the day away.

Ginny has the luck of the Irish with Shamus Shamrock at her side. Someone will be lucky to receive this card!

Guest Design Team Member Crystal has Cowpoke Cal on her wanted list. 

Everyone, please wish Fink a quick recovery from a nasty fall that injured her wrist last week.

What an awe inspiring job these ladies have done this month!! Like I said, I am very proud of them. Some of them have never made an easel card before and they seriously rocked this challenge. Be sure to visit each Dudette's blog and leave them some love. They definitely deserve to know they've inspired you this month.

Now it's your turn.


1. Use the photo / color inspiration 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. MUST be a masculine themed card, you can use humor, innuendo, be a little naughty, sarcastic, but it has got to be for a DUDE!

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

You have until Tuesday, March 22nd to upload your project using InLinkz below. We'll be announcing the winners right here later that evening. 

In the spirit of St. Patrick's Day, I'd like to leave you with an Irish blessing...

May your feet never sweat,
your neighbor give you ne're a treat.
When flowers bloom, I hope you'll not sneeze,
and may you always have someone to squeeze!

hee hee Sorry, I couldn't resist.

Seriously...May the sun shine all day long,
everything go right, and nothing wrong.
May those you love bring love back to you,
and may all the wishes you wish come true!

Thank you!

It's Guest Designer / FREEBIE Challenge Time

and I just know you are going to LOVE this one!

Today is the day to challenge yourself with a FREEBIE and a chance to win a spot on the incredible, the fun, the amazing Dude Time Doodles Design Team for the month of May.  So get into those flippers, put on that snorkel and dive the deep waters!

Say hello to Bobby Bubbles!  Bobby loves jumping in the tub with snorkel and fins.  Why he was just heard yelling at his Mom that he is too big for rubber duckies and ready to hit the deep water.  Watch Out Bobby!  With deep seas come some pretty unique sea creatures.....

[click on the photo and right click to save to your computer]

What do you have to do?

1.  Use the freebie image above in a humorous creation of astounding creativity and ingenuity  (hehehe no pressure)
2.  Submit a photo of your creation via InLinkz cache below 
3. And on March 15th we will announce our Guest Designer for May.
4. Spread the word - you only have one week - 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.****

Bobby made such a splash with the design team this month that you are getting some extra special eye candy to get you motivated.

Anne had the old Bobby Darrin tune to inspire her,
 however I don't think that Swamp Thing 
was what Bobby was singing about!

Ruth had the right idea when she thought about 
what she would do if she went snorkeling in the bathtub!

Cleota however is NEVER to young for rubber duckies - 
as a matter of fact she got a hold of Bobby's and is keeping it safe for him 
when he changes his mind!

And finally Tammy - our ever optimistic snorkeler 
who thinks that all adversity should be laugh at straight in the gills!

So come on Girls, grab your fins, your colors and hit us with your best shot!!

Thank you!

Guest Design Team Member 

Super Trooper Tripp

Hi…My name is Crystal
I was born in a small cabin in the woods without running water….. uh, wait….wrong story.  Bwahahahahahahahahaha!!!
My artistic abilities didn’t start in a cabin.  But they started very early on.  There isn’t a time I can remember that I wasn’t creating something artistically, drawing, painting, sewing, the list goes on and on. My family was always encouraging me to try anything ‘arty’.  Most of my jobs were art related.   I did pastel portraits at Six Flags over GA when I was just 16 yrs old. (I was the youngest artist there).  I made sand paintings for a company.  Jobs that weren’t art related…. Well, I made extra money doing some things for the company’s marketing departments on occasion.  I found a way to do my artwork!!!!
Which brings us to present day…….  I’m a SAHM that now has the opportunity to “play” all the time.  I still paint portraits and murals.  I make paper crafts.  I sew, crochet, knit….anything that keeps my hands and mind working.
Thanks for the opportunity to join in as a guest designer this month……it will be great working with all of you!!!!

Be sure to check back on the March 8th to see if you are the winner of the sketch challenge and don't forget this month's Freebie Challenge starts next Wednesday, March 9th, your chance to become a 
Guest Designer for a month on Dude Time Doodles. Here is a little tease of the freebie that will be offered for a limited time:

One last thing before you go. If you haven't already, be sure to get your copy of the Dudeville Hollow Holla by clicking on the post below.  Just be sure you are not drinking when you read the newsletter, otherwise, you will be showering your computer screen while laughing. Don't say I didn't warn you!
