This month's New Release has some really fun characters that are joining the rest of the Dudes.  So without further ado, meet Roger Redskin, Sagremor the Foolhardy, and Vinny Flytrap.

As always we are having a blog hop so you get to meet each character up close and personal. 

Along the way please be sure to leave comments with each of our design team members as one of the Dude/Dudettes is the Mystery Host and the winner will be chosen from that person's comments.  You could win an image of your choice from Dude Time Doodles.  

Let's get this party started with Roger Redskin by Charlene.

 The link list below is your guide to meet each new member of our community.  But if you get lost, no worries - just keep going until you've gone in a complete circle.  The hop is one big loop with no beginning and no end.  Just enjoy the wonderful creativity and inspiration provided by our fabulous design team!  Don't forget to leave comments along the way; we are all most grateful and it might make you the winner. 

So go now, enjoy!

Rachel, guest designer

Thank you!

The 23rd of May and the Cat was away.....

 EXTRA! EXTRA! Read all about it!  While the diligent Mayor of Dudeville Hollow was busy at work, the creative staff took it upon themselves to sneak into the Mayor's office and wreak havoc!  It seems that someone told the artists at Dude Time Doodles that the Mayor was out on official community business and they were bored so they created what they term as the Welcome to School being out and summer rushing in creation!

Upon questioning the now apprehended artist - his confession went something like this:

"I am Joe Observant. I realized that these little sticky rubby thingys had really bright colors, which then got me to thinking that I want to color, so I started coloring one of my favorite self portrait doodles Lawrence of Lawn (you know because I am so much like Lawrence of Arabia that Mrs. Mayor couldn't resist naming the image after how she sees me - wink, wink - she really does think I'm an Arabian Stud!)....but anyway I saw the cool colors on the rubby thingies, and then this green cardstock literally jumped on the top of the mountainous pile of cardstock that Mrs. Mayor has on hand in case of an emergency (I don't know what emergency she keeps referring to but I'm pretty sure that we will NOT be wallpapering the house or burning it when it gets cold) and then out of the corner of my eye I saw this punchy dohicky that looked like grass or blood oozing down the wall but I digress, and viola the best card ever created by a Dude Time Doodler was born!"

The Mayor of Dudeville Hollow is now issuing a challenge to the design team of Dude Time Doodles who inspired said artist and Mr. Mayor to sneak in to her space and create that they all come up with their own doodle and use it in a card or project that we will showcase on a future blog post. What say you people of Dudeville Hollow? Are you up for the challenge?

Thank you!

May's Inspirational Challenge

Hey everyone.  Anne here to post my first "official" Inspiration Challenge for Dude Time Doodles.  I thought we would start off with an easy one:


Everyone has them and everyone needs a few birthday cards in their stash of ready-to-use cards.  

The sponsor is Dude Time Doodles and the winner will receive three DTD images of his or her choice!

To help get your creative juices flowing, the Dude and Dudettes have come up with some fabulous examples for you:

guest designer Rachel Fisher - Hippy Rocker 

 Now it's your turn to upload your birthday cards for the Dudes in your life!!  You can enter as many times as you like as long as it's for a DUDE and not back linked.  Link your creation using the InLinkz tool below before May 22nd at 8 PM EST and you could be the winner of 3 images of your choice from Dude Time Doodles.

The Rules

1. Use the inspirational photo/theme above 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.

Welcome one and all! Before we get started on the new challenge, I must report the sad news that Cleota our Sr. DT and Sponsor Coordinator has decided to step down from Dude Time Doodles. But no fear, our very own Anne has graciously stepped into the position! So as we say farewell and a big thank you to Cleota, we also send a welcome and thank you to Anne!

As hard it is to believe, it is the First Wednesday in May and that means it's time to begin a new challenge and it is sure to please our dudes because


Regardless, winter, summer, spring or fall, there's sports involved and no doubt, Dude Time Doodles has an image that features your dude's favorite athletic pastime! So all you must do is be inspired by what the Dude and the Dudettes have created for the occasion and then create something special for the dude or dudes in your life following the theme and the rules on the sidebar. If you are chosen as the winner, you will receive three images of your choice from Bonibleaux Designs a/k/a Dude Time Doodles!  The winner will be announced on Tuesday, May 8, 2012! 

And now for a taste of some sports from the team!
It is my pleasure to welcome and introduce you to our guest designer joining us for the month of May, 
Rachel Fisher
I'm a full time mum of two girls - Lucy who is 5 and Penny who is four. Lucy is at school and Penny very ready to go. I used to teach chemistry at secondary school before the girls came along and before I was a teacher I lived up in Scotland where I did a phD in environmental geology. I'm happily married to Shaun who's a professor of physics, and when I'm not being mum I run a rainbows group in my village. Any spare time available to me I craft, run and grow vegetables! Crafting is definitely my biggest passion and it takes up increasing amounts of time - especially now since I've discovered blogging!
Now it your turn to create for your dude and his favorite sport and then come back to see if you are the winner!

Thank you!
