November Inspirational Challenge

Hello! Hello!!  Hello!!!

I'm so glad you've come for a visit today.  The Dude and Dudettes have truly out done themselves with my little challenge this week and I can't wait to show off their creations.

First, here's the challenge.  Use the below photo to inspire your creation.  Use the colors, the images, the sentiment.  Whatever you wish out of the photo, but you have to follow...


1. Use the photo / color inspiration and the Dude 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. You can use humor, innuendo, be a little naughty, sarcastic.  As long as your project is masculine

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

This month, we have an awesome new sponsor.

Graphicat Designs is a Brand New website full of some of your favorite things. Not only do we carry our own unique blend of sarcasm based sentiments and fun images, but we are the Canadian retailer for some fabulous other stamp companies such as Tickled Pink, Simply Betty and Whimsy Stamps.

Graphicat Designs is Proud to sponsor Dude Time Doodles, a fellow stamp company with images that match our sarcastic ways at Graphicat!

The winner will receive a Sushi Stamp Set from Graphicat Designs, pictured here:

Is that not absolutely awesome!  I know exactly what image those digi sentiments would go famously with!!

Now, let's take a look at the the Dude and Dudette's creations.

Dawn has paper pieced Fanny Thanks hair and dress in her fantastic easel card.

Fanny Thanks is looking fabulous in another paper pieced creation by Anne.

CG used Bountiful Blessings for her colorful card.

Arnie Armchair is looking like he's took the inspiration sentiment to heart in Ginny's fabulous piece.

Kevin's embellished with some beautiful feathers to accent Fanny Thanks golden delicious turkey.

Hippie Rocker looks like he might have had a little too much red wine with his Thanksgiving dinner in Linda's easel card.

Cleota has Patty Pilgrim serving up some scrumptious hot apple pie (and she followed the current Graphicat Design Challenge sketch)!!

Tom Tom Turkey has seen too many Chick-fil-a commercials and wants everyone to eat pizza for Thanksgiving in Michelle's creation.

Fanny Thanks is so thoughtful in Ruth's delightfully red greeting.

Tammy's brightly colored Bountiful Blessings creation looks good enough to gobble!!

So there you have it!  All the inspiration one could ever ask for.  Now grab a cup of hot cocoa (go ahead and add the mini marshmallows - it's fun), your favorite crafting products and creation to your hearts content.

Just be sure you link up your project with Mr. Linky below before next Tuesday evening at 8 PM for a chance to win sentiment stamp set from Graphicat Designs!!

Thank you!
