What's your favorite Christmas movie?

During this time of year, the spirit of giving is in the air and Dude Time Doodles has been enjoying taking part in the giving!  Have you caught the freebies we've offered on the weekends?  You can find them in the store if you missed out.  There is one more this Saturday, be sure to visit before the time is up.

We're getting closer and closer to the "big day".  Have you finished with your Christmas shopping?  Have you forgotten anyone?  Remember to get something for your pet!  A dog bone or some catnip for the kitten. 

Every year, we like to watch as many of the Christmas movies on TV as we can fit in.  There are a bunch of them to choose from.  Which one is your favorite?  Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer?  Miracle on 34th Street?  National Lampoon's Christmas vacation?  Or maybe A Charlie Brown Christmas?
The challenge this week is to create a project with your favorite Christmas movie in mind.  Be sure to follow the few simple rules below and use the InLinkz tool by the deadline for your chance to win.


1. Use the photo / color inspiration and the Dude and Dudette creations 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.

Let's take a peep at the Dudettes and that one Dude's favorite Christmas movies.

Linda's favorite is White Christmas.  Bing Crosby and Danny Kaye 1954.  According to The Guinness Book of World Records, the Bing Crosby version is the top selling single of all time!!  

Bad Santa is Kevin's pick.  A Coen Brothers production starring Billy Bob Thornton starred John Ritter in his final live action film before his death.

Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer is Anne's favorite.  First created in 1939 by Robert L. May and published by Montgomery Ward.   The retail chain had been giving away coloring books for Christmas every year and decided that creating their own book would save money.

The Snowman ranks at the top of Dawn's list of Christmas movies.  Originally a children's book written by English author Raymond Briggs and published in 1978.  

The Snowman is also Ruth's favorite.  In 1982, it was turned into a 26 minute short film which was nominated for an OSCAR for animated short film.  It has since become part of British Christmas popular culture. 

Tammy also likes Ruloph the Red-Nosed Reindeer.  Rudolph made his television debut in 1964 when Rankin/Bass created their stop-motion animation version starring Burl Ives.  Many new characters were also introduced including Yukon Cornelius and the Hermey the Elf.

How the Grinch Stole Christmas is CG's top ranked Christmas movie.  Originally written by Dr. Seuss in 1957, the children's book has seen several adaptations. First as an animated special for television narrated by Boris Karloff in 1966 and as a live action movie starring Jim Carrey in 2000.

At the top of Michelle's favorite Christmas movie list is Christmas Vacation.  Released in 1989, Christmas Vacation is the third installment in the National Lampoon's Vacation film series starring Chevy Chase and Beverly D'Angelo.  The Griswald's plans for a big family Christmas predictably turn into a disaster.

Cleota's most anticipated Christmas movie is The Year Without a Santa Clause.  A stop-motion animated movie created by Rankin/Bass in 1974 based on Phyllis McGinley's 1956 book of the same name.  It features the Miser Brothers fighting over whether or not to let it snow in Southtown.  Their mom, Mother Nature, gets involved so Vixen can get out of the dog pound.

Our fearless guest designer, Mel loves watching The Wizard of Oz during Christmas.  The 1939 movie is based on the children's novel by L. Frank Baum.  Along with Dorothy, her ruby slippers and her dog Toto, you'll find Scarecrow, Tin Man, and the Cowardly Lion.  Although the film won two Academy Awards, it was a box office failure, because it didn't recoup the studio's investment.

Fantastic depictions of the Dudettes' and that one Dude's favorite Christmas movies.  I hope you have a fantastic Christmas and a wonder holiday season.

OOOHHH!!  Don't forget the cranberry sauce for Christmas dinner!!

Thank you!

Cheap Valentine

WELCOME! Even though the design team is on a much needed break, some of us wanted to make sure you got to see the new image released by our beloved Marlene and available at Bonibleaux Designs

Tired of the same old box of stale chocolates and wilted flowers on Valentine's Day or worse yet, the love of your life is a tightwad and you are lucky if you receive a candy bar? Well Marlene has created Cheap Valentine, the perfect image for you to send BEFORE Valentine's Day to give a gentle love nudge or a loud hint to assist you in getting those gifts you've been wishing for. Just be warned, wait until after the sticker shock of Christmas has worn off before sending the Valentine.

Here is a little inspiration.

Thank you!

Christmas freebie...Kris Jingle

All of us here at Dude Time Doodles are excited about the holidays.  We are a generous bunch and are happy to present another Bonibleaux new release for free. 

That's right!  FREE!!!

Let me introduce you to Kris Jingle.  He's all tangled up in the Christmas lights.  Those of us who put up Christmas lights every year know what a hassle untangling them can be.  


Here's what Cleota created using Kris Jingle.  He's not sure how the strand of lights is working with it not being plugged in!!

So, grab the freebie while you can before it's moved to the store.

Thank you!

The winner will receive two images from GLITTERBABE'S DIGIS. HOWEVER, if you use a Glitterbabe image, you will receive three images! Even if you are not the winner, you can treat yourself to at least one laugh-a-day by visiting Glitterbabe's personal blog!
