Dudetime Doodles Inspiration Challenge

It is time for another inspirational challenge and I'm back to show ya'll what the Dude Time Doodles Dudettes (that's the design team) has created to get your mojo overflowing. 

This month's inspirational challenge is based on these images and colors:

Doesn't this create visions of warm sandy beaches, longnecks on ice, and having fun with your family and friends?  I know a lot of us have had unprecedented snow fall and we're all praying for a little warmer weather.  

Make sure you check out all the Dudettes (on my sidebar) as they have done a fantastic job with the challenge this month.  I'm going to have to up my game a little next time!

Here's what you have to do to join in the fun with us...


1. Use the images 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. 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!

You have until Tuesday, February 22nd to upload your project using InLinkz below.  We'll be announcing the winners right here that evening. 

Thank you!

February SKETCH Challenge

Hi there to all you awesome fans of Dude Time Doodles this is your sketch challenge hostess, Tammy, extending a warm welcome to each of  you. 

All the Dudettes have gathered today to entice you into joining our monthly sketch challenge, held on the first Wednesday of each month. February brings us one sweet month full of prizes and snow. But lets skip the snow and get right to the prizes TWO generous sponsors have for TWO lucky winners of the Sketch Challenge.  And don't forget the badges. We all like badges. 

The first sponsor is Pattie's Creations and Pattie is offering three images from her Esty store. Patti is the originator of "Pattiboop", a very opinionated 11 year old, silly "Allie" cat and many other fun and whimsical images. If you have not been to her store lately, stop over and see what you have been missing. 

The second sponsor is Creative Inspirations and they are offering 10 jars of iridescent water based paint that will add brilliance and sparkle to your creations. Not to enable your crafting addiction further but to let you know, Inspiration paints are available in 55 beautiful colors. 

So here's your sketch:


  • 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 Digis 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!
The winners will be announced here on February 9th

To entice your further, make sure you pop by the challenge blog and see take a look at what the design team has created with morefantastic images from Bonibleaux Designs Digis
