DTD Inspiration Challenge

Dude Time Doodles is having an Inspiration Challenge starting today! Be sure and check it out. You have one week to enter. You could be named the Top Blog or one of the Top Three Blogs. The inspiration will be Anything But A Card. Be sure and keep in mind though, it's for a Dude!!!


Boni's Inspiration project is called a Nook Book - isn't it adorable with some of the DTD images on it. Very creative to be sure and handy to have around too.

For my "Anything But A Card" I created a little M and M container for my husband. I used the Armchair Arnie image you can get in Boni's STORE. When you see this image you think of your guy sitting in his favorite recliner watching a little TV, eating popcorn or peanuts, and drinking a beer or two. For this project though, he's sitting here watching the TV but is drinking a little Root Beer and eating M and M's! I think my husband has gotten addicted to those little candies and figured he needed something to store them in. The only problem I have is that he keeps trying to eat them off the lid too - glue dots and all! Plus I sprayed this with some type of clear acrylic stuff in had in the garage and really don't think that stuff would be good for human consumption!


Be sure and check out the Inspiration Challenge today and Dude Time Doodles and submit your entry - and also take a peek at all the other DT's project - so much creativity!


Thanks for stopping by..................

Don't blame your hubby if he is eating all those M&Ms coz' they look even more delightful on the lovely jar you have designed. I too would have helped myself with a few when you were not looking... that is if I were anywhere around!

Such a colourful piece that is... love it.

Too cute!! I love how you piled them on top of the lid. I think Arnie needs to cut down on the root beer though :)

OMGOsh, Lynn - this is seriously adorable! What a creative gift for the dudes (father's day!?!) Wonderful and unique - I clicked on your picture to see the m & m close up .. are they glued or glue dots? Fabulous! Such a happy project!
