August New Release Blog Hop

Welcome, welcome! This month we've managed to keep our master artists locked behind closed doors creating wonderful new citizens to add to our happy Dude Time Doodles family. Speaking of our family, all the Dudettes join me in welcoming Chrissy D. back to the team.

If you want to see each new release, come along on the blog hop and you will meet, Howie HotHotHot, Muttley Doo Doo, Jimmy Gymnastic, Trashy Temper, Chick Sanders, The Blame Game, Mitch Magistrate, Hand it Over and Merle Molar! Each new image will be available at Bonibleaux Designs at 10:00 a.m. tomorrow morning.

One new image you are sure to love is HOWIE HotHotHot that Mayor Boni created. What a fabulous way to say thank you to your fire company.

Before you leave, don't forget that on August 24 we are celebrating Dude Time Doodles' first birthday with a Scavenger Crawl. Mark the date on your calendar and help yourself to the reminder badge to hang on your blog. 

Enjoy the hop. The first stop is Anne, but no matter where you start, it's a loop, so keep going to see all of the new images.  You will want to leave a comment at each Dudettes' blog because one of us is the Mystery Hostess and your comment might win you one of the new releases.

Thank you!

Hoot-hoot-hoot, holler, holler, holler! So glad you stopped by, you're just in time to enjoy Dude Time Doodles' first ever GUEST SPOTLIGHT DESIGNER! 
It  is with a whopping honor that I introduce you to 
LESLIE MILLER of Running With Scissors fame. 
Please help me give her a hardy welcome that only Dude Time Doodles 
and Bonibleaux Designs can give! 

Each of Leslie's creations are an absolute treasure. I admire her style, creativity and her ability to color images perfectly. And to be truthful, there is another reason I love to visit Running With Scissors and that is because once in a while (not often enough for me) Leslie will share picture of Wally, her beautiful golden retriever, 
and his latest shenanigans!

Without future ado, I proudly present Leslie Miller.

My name is Leslie Miller, and I live on the southern Oregon coast where I'm a wife, working woman, mom to a grown son and a Golden Retriever. The years have flown by since I started stamping and paper crafting, and it has become my #1 inside hobby. Who could imagine the adventures and friendships that would develop as a result? I started sharing online at Splitcoaststampers in 2004 and did a six month rotation on their Dirty Dozen Design Team. Next came my blog, Running With Scissors..., and soon to follow was my position on Flourishes' design team.  I've done several guest spots here and there, and six months with Stamper's Dream.  It's all been so much fun!  And now I'm pretty excited to be sharing a day with Dude Time Doodles.  I'm a lucky girl!

When I'm not stamping, I get the most enjoyment from friends and family, books, movies, and being outdoors -- particularly in my flower garden. The medical laboratory where I work is a busy and sometimes noisy place, and I love nothing more than peace and quiet at the end of the day. My stamp room is a most peaceful and personal place and I visit it as often as possible!

Thank you Leslie for taking the time to share your awesome talent with us. 

And as a gentle reminder to our visitors, there is still time to join 

July's sketch challenge!

Thank you!

Hidy Ho neighbor, welcome to Dude Time Doodles, land of the Dudes, home of  Bonibleaux Designs and all the folks dedicated to poking fun at them!

Today begins this month's sketch challenge and the Dudettes have done a banged-up job bringing you their wonderful creations for the sketch.
It is such a pleasure to tell you that once again Creative Inspirations is our sponsor for this month's sketch challenge and they will be awarding the winner 4 jars of their wonderful iridescent water-based paint, bling in a bottle! And good news, as of July 1st, they have added Jeweled Inspirations and Metallic Inspirations to accompany the 55 beautiful colors already on their color palette. If you are unfamiliar with their use, our lovely Anne did a tutorial for you yesterday using the paints. For more examples and further information, please visit Creative Inspirations' blog.


You will have one week to flip the Sketch, twist the Sketch, work the Sketch and submit the Sketch.
You are not required to use Bonibleaux Designs although it would make us really really happy and giggle a lot if you did!
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!

 And here is your inspiration from the Dudettes.
Last Call Leonard

Fanny Fart

Forever Friends

Hank Holler
Santa Beaches
Sushi II

Zane Zombie

Super Trooper Tripp
Bobby Bubbles
Kyle Karate
Pete Plummer

Now it's your turn to use the sketch, just be sure to use InLinkz below to link up your creation. Check back next Tuesday, July 12 to see if you are the lucky winner of 4 jars of Creative Impressions Paint.
One last thing before you go and that is a sneak peek at next Wednesday's freebie.

Thank you!
