July's New Release Blog Hop

Welcome back!

We have so many new and exciting things going on in Dudeville today!  It's the last Wednesday of June!  It's summertime.  Pool parties, vacations, and small town festivals are popping up all over the country and Dudeville is no exception!  We are tickled to have you here with us to celebrate our exciting new images, a blop hop, *and* to welcome our new Dudettes!!!

That's right.  New Dudettes!!  We've had to say our fare-thee-wells to some of our original Dudettes.  We wish them all the best and hope they stop in when they can.

To help me welcome our new design team members,  The Dudeville Hollow Hillbilly Hounds (Jethro Jug, Cletus, and Skeeter) are on stage playing some tunes, Last Call Leonard (our bartender) is serving up the hillbilly moonshine, and there will be an exhibition match between Kyle Karate and Vicky Viking around 3 PM.  Those are just a few of the events on the official agenda.  We may also be lucky enough to have Dudeville's Mayor stop by the festivities.

To get the party started, let's begin with having the Dudettes introduce themselves.

Hi I'm Dawn, I'm married, 50 years young & I live in Edinburgh, Scotland.  I work full time as a Dental Nurse, with patients who have special needs.  I have enjoyed some form of crafting for most of my life & began card making 5 years ago, when I made my very first grown up card for my Dad's 70th birthday!  I'm sooooo looking forward to working with the Dudettes! 

My name is Janet and I live in Niagara falls. I have been crafting my whole life, but started making cards 6 years ago. My fave type of cards to make are music/heavy metal cards. Music is my life. I play bass in a Slayer cover band and love being on stage. Thanks for the chance to play along with Dude Time Doodles!! 
(You may remember Janet as being our guest designer for June!!)

Hi my name is Linda and I live in Warrington, Cheshire in the UK.  I have been crafting nearly all my  life starting like many other crafters knitting which my Dad taught me how to do.  I then went on to teach myself cross stitching and then to embroider.  I got into paper crafting about 8 years ago whilst looking for some cards to put my cross stitch into, from then on I have been well and truly hooked and love all areas of crafting especially stamping, parchment, CD crafting and painting with acrylics.

I set up my own blog in February just before I took early retirement and just love being part of the crafting community.  This is my first time as a design team member and I am looking forward to making lots of crafty new friends.


I'm a Nana to 6 and a GreatNana to 1 with a second GreatGrand due in a couple of months.  I rattle around in a wonderful old, Victorian house in Northern California.  I've been crafting and creating all my life including sewing or quilting, painting, poetry, scrapbooking, and jewelry.  However, the last 2 years have focused on cardmaking and it's nearly an addiction.  I love rubber stamping, but the last few months, digis have all but taken over.  The world of blogging has given me such great resources for inspiration.  I feel blessed to wake up each day, knowing that something creative will touch my day, either from someone else or magically appearing from the scraps scattered on my own crafting table!


Hi, I'm Michelle and am thrilled to be one of the new design team members with Dude Time Doodles.
I live in Williams Lake, BC Canada with my hubby of 15 years and my two boys ages 12 and 8.  I work full-time outside the home and pretty much full-time inside the home as well! I have been crafting for the better part of 20 years and have recently acquired my own craft room that is my mine, all mine!  I enjoy kickboxing, mountain biking and of course card making and scrapbooking.


These ladies are uber talented and we are over the moon to have them on our team.  Please be sure to visit their blogs and give them a true Dudeville welcome. 
The crowd is getting rowdy now!  The exhibition match between Kyle Karate and Vicky Viking is getting ready to start.  Kyle is waiting in the ring for Vicky who is slowly walking into the arena swinging her sword and trying desperately to keep her helmet on.
If you are still here after the match, be sure to stop by Uncle Sam's booth.  He's giving samples of his homemade apple pie.  We will also have dance lessons given by Herman Hustle at 5 PM. 

And as promised...Mayor Boni has arrived.She will be refereeing the exhibition match! I'm putting my chips on Vicky...she looks like one tough cookie!!

We are going to start our blop hop with the ever talented  Anne.  This is a circle hop, so no matter where you start as long as you go full circle you will see everything.  Here's a list of the Dudette's just in case you get lost along the way.

Be sure to visit each of the Dudettes to see all the new images.  Leave some love, because you never know which one will be the MYSTERY HOSTESS.  One commenter from the MYSTERY HOSTESS'S blog will win one of the newly released images!!

Well, it's been a long day and I hear the Dudeville Hollow Hillbilly Hounds playing Happy Trails.  We hope you'd enjoyed the inaugural Dudeville Hollow Dudette Festival.  Ya'll come back now.  Ya hear?!

Thank you! 
Dude Time Doodles
